What is a prototype?

A prototype is a preliminary model of something. Projects that offer physical products need to show backers documentation of a working prototype. This gallery features photos, videos, and other visual documentation that will give backers a sense of what’s been accomplished so far and what’s left to do. Though the development process can vary for each project, these are the stages we typically see:

Proof of Concept

Explorations that test ideas and functionality.

Functional Prototype

Demonstrates the functionality of the final product, but looks different.

Appearance Prototype

Looks like the final product, but is not functional.

Design Prototype

Appearance and function match the final product, but is made with different manufacturing methods.

Production Prototype

Appearance, function, and manufacturing methods match the final product.

About

OMNI is for Music Lovers and DJs.
OMNI combines portable turntable and musical instrument. Next level in turntablism, analog experience, and high fidelity audio. Inspired by the legendary Technics SL-1200, smaller in size without excessive features, means OMNI can deliver more.

Music played by OMNI's internal speaker, in a sitting room.  

OMNI, the audio station for both analog and digital music, especially for vinyl lovers looking for quality turntables which delivers better sound quality and functionality. OMNI plays 7”, 10”, and 12” vinyl records, the fully adjustable tone arm and headshell achieves high quality stereo sound image. On top of that, the built-in hi-fi grade bluetooth audio receiver means you can play your favourite music from your smart phones. We believe OMNI not only offers great sound quality and functionality, but also enhance playback experience for music lovers.

MADD played OMNI by the dock.  

OMNI, the ultimate one stop solution for modern portablism. Grab the OMNI together with an USB power bank and smart phone, and you are good to go. Scratch and play anywhere, anytime. Bluetooth ready for playback streaming while you scratch along. Nothing feels better than the real deal, true analog experience missing in the digital age. Contactless faders give you the sharpest and seamless cuts only available in high end DJ mixers. Features are all well-designed with a simple thought in mind: we hope OMNI would give anyone an easy access to turnablism, perhaps even bringing it into the next level.

Risks and challenges

Developing new and unique products is always our ultimate passion, but it could also be complicated and challenging. We have been manufacturing audio electronic products for over 3 years with reliable source of supplies. OMNI is our third product, and second Kickstarter campaign. We have confidence to delivery OMNI to you on schedule.

Problems we have encountered from the previous product invention were mostly found in the tooling and molding stages. This time, we doubled these stages for OMNI and assure no delay on shipment. Meanwhile we still promise consistent and transparent production updates to our backers for potential risks, such as material shortage, or non-expected high demand on Kickstarter, which might affect delivery time.

Thank you very much for your support!
