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

Allow me to start my story, at the happy ending.  People around the world enjoying their smart phone more by using a Quad case. You notice the Quad hanging from necks everywhere.  Like the time you walked into a furniture store and the sales people wore them as name tags.  Or when you bought a home and the realtor never missed your calls, with a Quad case.   Or when your neighbor was monitoring her youngsters on the playground. Or passing a conference room at work, and noticing a co-workers watching videos on their Quad kickstands.

Now back to the beginning of the story, about two years ago.  Two years, Really?

My biggest challenge was finding a factory capable of making the kickstands.  They must have enough resistance to prop-up a phone, and pivot into connecting rings. Three different a factories failed, wasting an average of six months in my search and development process.  Finally, I located a company that produced excellent kickstand-connecting parts.

Risks and challenges

Going forward, my focus will shift from production to marketing. The smart phone market is huge but getting attention is difficult with a limited marketing budget. This is where I really need your help. Please support this project with a purchase, then share the video.

For example, if you wear a name tag at work, please share the video with co-workers.

Feel free to contact me with any questions or suggestions.

Thanks
Greg Washio
