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.
Demonstrates the functionality of the final product, but looks different.
Looks like the final product, but is not functional.
Appearance and function match the final product, but is made with different manufacturing methods.
Appearance, function, and manufacturing methods match the final product.
Welcome to the LifeLog Kickstarter. We're a new social media app based on video game achievements, but for the real world! We've come a long way in getting the right team together to develop this app and we now have a growing community on iOS devices. But we want to bring it to more people. That's what this Kickstarter is about. We're raising funds to build the Android version of the app and to bring LifeLog to a wider audience.
Currently, we have a goal of £32,000 to build the Android version, but there are so many more goals we could achieve with LifeLog. Including changing the quality of social media and making it more engaging again. Ultimately, as we grow we can route out the barrage of click bait and constant adverts you find on other social media platforms.
On top of that, with LifeLog Points = Prizes.The more points you gain in-app, the more chance you have of winning the prize draws. We also have secret objectives that will only be revealed once the objective has been completed by a LifeLog user.
Check out our Facebook & Twitter for latest updates on competitions, prize winners and new achievements:
Feel free to get in contact via email at email@example.com
If we raise £60,000 We'll also bring some needed features and upgrades to both versions of the app including:
Local Achievements, find achievements near you
Activity discounts. As LifeLog grows we will be able to offer exclusive discounts for LifeLog users.
Tablet redesign. Currently, the app is not optimised for tablet devices.
If we raise £100,000 we can start running LifeLogger events where LifeLoggers will come together and achieve together. in a mass achievement hunting event.
If we raise £130,000 we can build a website version of LifeLog to run alongside the apps.
ACHIEVEMENTS & COMPETITIONS
We will constantly add more achievements, including localised ones.
Recently we held a campaign at the University of Essex in the UK where we added over 20 achievements for the students. We were then featured on a local student blog so check that out for more info.
We've run a few competitions so far with prizes including vouchers and game consoles. But the bigger LifeLog gets, the bigger the prizes get and the more prizes there will be.
HOUSES & REWARDS
There are currently 4 houses to join in LifeLog. Joining a house gives all benefits in-app plus exclusive customization options.
2 more Houses will be unlocked if the campaign is successful. As LifeLog grows, so will the houses. Inter-house competitions will be run and each house will develop their own exclusive benefits.
For our high-level backers, they will get exclusive house branded merchandise. Such as phone cases (in leather or hard plastic) and clothes.
The Future of LifeLog
We'll also aim to sponsor people to achieve as much as possible. We'll grow our community of LifeLoggers to go on adventures together, achieve together and socialise together. We've already started sponsoring some sports events.
Finally, take a look at the short promo video below for more achievement ideas and where LifeLog is headed as it continues to grow!
Risks and challenges
There are minimal risks with this project. Quite a bold statement, but we already have a version of the app on iOS, which proves we can deliver. It's taken a long time and a few different developers to get to where we are today, we are now really confident in the team we have that they can produce the Android version, as well as making further improvements to the iOS app. We have everything in place, and are eager to get going!
For us communication is key, you'll be able to follow our progress regularly on Kickstarter, our website and other traditional social media platforms like Facebook and Twitter.
Not only will we hear from us, but we want to hear from you!
As we have the iOS mobile version out there, you can give us vital feedback on how we can best use the money to improve the design before we put the developers to work.
