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 this project

The Myths and Legends website is used by thousands of people every day in schools and at home. The site is free to use and contains animated and narrated stories from all over the world. As the site is used in schools it doesn’t carry any advertising and all the content is reviewed before publishing so it’s safe.   

8 years ago when we first launched the site, the technology used (Flash) was current. Things have moved on a lot since then, and now the Myths and Legends site doesn’t look so good or function as well as modern sites. Eventually, if we leave it the stories could become inaccessible.     

We are running this campaign to raise funds so we can update the site and ensure that the stories can be accessed, for free, for another 10 years on phones and tablets as well as desktop - we also want to add new stories as well as new ways to find and play the stories.

Risks and challenges

Having developed the Myths site for many years we are aware of the challenges.

I guess the biggest risk is the size of the site. It has thousands of pages so it could be we have underestimated the time it will take to reformat it all. But by going from the most visited and important pages first we will be able to cascade the changes and call a halt should time and budget run out.
