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

We have done it before, we are now ready to build the next generation Smart Connect

Smart Connect Gen1. was the first power strip that you could mount directly into your wall outlet without any cord. Gen.1 is Nemko tested and approved for maximum safety, it clean up your cable mess, and gives you 6 new outlet, 2.  2x1,5A built in USB chargers, and a safe on/off switch. 

We launch Gen.1 in the marked the 15th of October 2015, with great success  

Status today,  we have delivered more than 20.000 units in the Norwegian marked,  and have signed up with Coop Handel Norge for distribution in more than 200 stores. The products high safety standard have impressed the 2 biggest insurance company in Norway, and SC is now also promoted in their safety stores!

Our next step is Sweden,  then we take it to the rest of Europe.

 

Based on our experience on Gen.1 , we start develop Smart Connect Next Generation. Smarter, with more safety options, and of course with the next generation smart house technology.

  

Next generation will be wifi connected, with the highest level of built in safety systems, and of course prepared for connection with Tibber`s (www.tibber.com) art of state new technology for energy distribution.

  • Controlled by own App, and open for connecting with other system
  • built in online and automatic safety and heating control
  • Consumption control
  • new design
  • Handle a wide range of outlets

Smart Connect Gen. 2 will be the safest and smartest power strip in the marked! Support us, we have done it before, and can do it again!

Risks and challenges

All new develop processes have some challenge to overcome, it can be technical law issue, production issue, marked and distribution, and a lot of other challenges you have solve before the product is in the marked. Smart Connect have important experience from gen.1, that reduce the risk, and speed up the work with Gen.2

A lot of the technical development is already done , we have a production agreement with factories that we trust. We have a strong distribution chain also for the next generation, and most important we have learned.
