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.

Risks and challenges

Mass manufacturing:
We are pioneering mass manufacturing of a coktailmachine for home use. Our team has >10 years of manufacturing experience bringing complex products to market with very low failure rate, and great relationships with manufacturers who understand the ins and outs of manufacturing our product as well as we do.
Certification:
We have successfully started the certification process for the European market and are about to do so for the US. For Australia and Canada we will start the process in the upcoming months. While we have reflected the timing in our project timeline, unexpected delays may occur due to regulatory differences and particularities.
Delivery:
We intend to begin shipping all pre-ordered coktailmachines latest in spring 2019 for EU countries, latest in summer for the US and at the beginning of 2020 for Australia and Canada. This should give us time to get the required product certifications and manufacture your SPIRITS. However, please keep in mind that with new products, issues may arise that are out of our control.
