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

SportsVenting is a social media app focused on fans being able to "VENT" about the teams they love and hate. The founders of SportsVenting have successfully launched the app on the Google Play Store. They are now looking to launch the app on the App Store.

Once a profile is created (either through manual entry or logging in through Facebook or Twitter), the user will choose teams they love and hate. They will also have the ability to create general vents across the entire sports spectrum, in addition to venting about specific topics spanning the four major professional leagues (NFL, MLB, NBA, NHL) and Division 1 college football and basketball. Vents can also be shared on Facebook and Twitter.

Users can create groups to vent their frustrations about anything, including players, referees, broadcasters, and fans of other teams. The app allows for "venting" videos, photos and check-ins from sporting events. SportsVenting has an easy to use share feature that allows users to pass along signup information through a number platforms (email, text messaging, Facebook and Twitter.)

Risks and challenges

There have been prior apps that have looked to address the sports social media landscape and failed. We believe that SportsVenting can become a successful app as well as a recognized brand. We also feel that we can capitalize on the name of our app, our mascot (Frustrated Phil) and the frustrations that sports fans face on a daily basis.

Facebook and Twitter have monopolized social media. However, they are missing a significant segment... the ability for sports fans to "VENT". SportsVenting is NOT a platform to discuss movies, music, politics or religion. SportsVenting is more than happy to leave those discussions to Facebook and Twitter. We are committed to offering a forum to vent only about sports.
