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

Can’t Win Them All!  

As much as we wanted the Slap Cap Kickstarter to succeed, it just did not. Getting feedback from backers of our previous campaigns, the idea of Slap Cap is cool but it is something you would expect to receive as a promotional item at a beer festival or golf tournament event. Thank you everyone for the fantastic advice, it is greatly appreciated and we will do some homework/research in the area of promotional products.  

I am so grateful to the individuals that backed this project and thank them ever so much for the support they have given us. I am so sorry guys that this was not able to get funded, we love to deliver awesome, unique, one of a kind projects but it was just not the time for Slap Cap. Please be sure to keep in touch with us via our website GearInfusion.com or our social media channels @gearinfusion to keep up to date on new products!

Check out our 3 previous Kickstarter projects:  

Pry.Me: Penny-Sized Titanium Bottle Opener

Brew Soldier: Key-Sized Titanium Bottle Opener

Key Titan: Organizing and Silencing Key Carabiners

We are thrilled to be back for our 4th Kickstarter campaign to bring you a trick shot bottle opener, Slap Cap. 

Slap Cap is 6” in length, made from stainless steel and has a recess which happens to perfectly fit bottle caps. Give Slap Cap a smack and the cap goes flying towards its target. Sounds easy right?  

  • Try shooting into a cup on a shelf, into a shoe by the door, or off your table into the trash can.  
  • Get your friends together, put some time on the clock and race for the highest score.  
  • Compete on teams relay race style by launching caps into a solo cup before passing it to a teammate.  

What was once just a boring kitchen tool has now turned into a post-bottle-opening-extreme-challenge-party-game!!!

Slap Cap is made from rust-proof stainless steel and is available in two finishes, Brushed Silver and Black.

On this project, we are offering the option to have your business or personal logo etched onto Slap Cap! The available lasering area is 1.5” x 2.5” (3.8 cm x 6.4 cm). Our laser is able to etch a barcode on a head of a pin so complex logos are more than welcome. Please reach out if you have questions!

After you back any of the custom laser pledges, we will send you a simple form which will allow you to upload your image file and choose the orientation of your image.

Custom lasering is available for low quantities, however, as each custom logo needs to be processed and calibrated individually, the price per unit will be reduced for pledges with higher quantities. 

NOTE: Please keep in mind that we are only allowed to laser content that you own or is created by you. At this time, we are not able to laser logos such as sports teams or anything that we do not have the legal rights to use.  

Check out the prototype samples that we made for our Instagram friends:

We will be posting our trick shot and challenge videos on our social channels @GearInfusion on Thursdays. When you get your Slap Cap, join the challenge and be sure to share your crazy shots by tagging #slapcaptrickshot and #GearInfusion. We will compile the best shots and will re-share on our social channels!

On Time. Our Commitment to You.

If you backed one of our three previous Kickstarter projects you can attest to this, we love shipping on time! Our goal is to create a timeline that is realistic, includes buffers where buffers are needed, and for us to be as transparent as possible upfront and throughout the process. Check out our shipping/delivery timing on Slap Cap and our previous Kickstarter projects in the “Timeline” section below.

Slap Cap has been formed at optimal angles to play against your friends at a table with a shooting distance of 2 to 4 ft (0.6m to 1.2m) with minimal force but caps can be shot with control up to 9’ (2.7m). If you want to shoot further than 9’ (2.7m), be our guest, just keep in mind that your shot may go wonky on you!

Everyone’s favorite part of the campaign, the timeline! Our goal is to create a timeline that is realistic, includes buffers where buffers are needed, and for us to be as transparent as possible throughout the process. We want to deliver on time and I am sure you want to receive your product on time!

Check out our shipping history on our past Kickstarter projects. We love delivering on time (or ahead of time)!

We will be using BackerKit to send out our surveys shortly after the campaign ends. The survey will collect your shipping information and will allow you to increase the number of items on your order. After the campaign ends, keep an eye out for emails from Kickstarter and BackerKit with regards to the surveys. We will provide regular updates via Kickstarter on the progress of the project :)

I started my professional career as a mechanical engineer at a world-renowned lighting and home automation company. Over the next six years, my career furthered my real-world education in product design, manufacturing, packaging, product management, patent/trademarks and even marketing. As much as I was learning, I started to feel less satisfied working to make someone else’s dream a reality and thought it was time to pursue my own. I scoured through my list of ideas to find the perfect first product… something innovative but simple. I came upon idea #46 of #188 on my list … a small but strong titanium bottle opener called Pry.Me.

Since the release of Pry.Me on Kickstarter in 2016 I launched another bottle opener called Brew Soldier as part of the "All in 1" 7-day Kickstarter program and more recently a line of 3 key organizing/silencing carabiners called Key Titan. Each product creates endless opportunities to further my education of different manufacturing processes, marketing, distributors, packaging design, product assembly, logistics, and beyond. The education gained from previous projects, allows us to add complexity while making sure we deliver.  From penny-sized bottle openers to future wave-piercing race boats there are sure to be some awesome products along the way!

Want to give a helping hand? Please share our project by using the links below. 30 seconds of your time can make all the difference in bringing Slap Cap to life. Cheers!

I know the above information was a lot to read but we wanted to thank you for taking the time to stop by and learn about our project. We are excited to launch our fourth project and are extremely thankful for the support!

Cheers, Brian

Risks and challenges

Keeping on track with the timeline is our main goal. We have a great relationship with our vendors but as always there can be manufacturing delays or unforeseen issues. We will be working closely with all of our vendors during production to minimize the chance of any issues. We have delivered our past three Kickstarter projects on time and plan to do the same for this project as well!
