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

 

Put your Scubalec on and enjoy the freedom under water. A small personal jet drive for your hand - easy to use and handy.

Like a pedelec supports cyclist with permanent tailwind, Scubalec supports you with additional under water boost on demand.

Scubalec is the first personal under water jet drive for your arm especially for snorkelers.    

Two electric jet drive engines and a battery mounted on an arm base plate - handy and easy to use. Scubalec supports you with extra velocity on your command. Perfect for those who loves to snorkel.

The battery has 7.500 mA/h. Enough power for about 10 to 12 minutes of continuous propulsion if you want.    

    

With Scubalec we created a small simple device which helps you to make diving easier and brings fun. It extends your dive time by consuming less oxygen - perfect for snorkeling.

    

 

Please keep in your mind, that due to the Battery we have to ship Scubalec as dangerous goods - so shipping costs are very high, e.g. from Germany to US it is significantly above 40 USD.  

 

 

Working as a designer he developed and created hundreds of products and furnitures over the last 20 years.  

 

 

Risks and challenges

Upon successfully completing the Kickstarter project, we will order all needed parts and start the manufacturing process. As all main parts are handmade by ourselves or idndustrial standard products, we are not dependent on other suppliers. So, the risk is still low.

In case that this campaign will be extraordinarily successful, we will start serial production. This could cause delay in our time scheduling. In this case, we would settle a new timeline - anyway, the first 50 pieces we would produce by hand to make sure, that our early birds get their Scubalec according to our first scheduling.

We are ready to go into serial production if needed. We have a lot of experience in realising projects as we work for many years bringing products on the market. All technical development for industrial production are already done.
