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.

THE BIRTH OF THE CHILLA CHAIR 

The birth of the Chilla Chair began in my graphic design class at school roughly 14 years ago. The inspiration came from spending years in the great outdoors and constantly trying to remember all the bits and pieces that are needed to create a comfortable and functional camping experience. To create that comfortable experience you need an array of bare essentials such as plates, knives and forks, a spatular, tongs, cups and of course the good old camping chair. These were the essentials 14 years ago, now you need to have a bluetooth speaker, USB charging docks, solar panels and a soft luxury outdoor cushion. And so the Chilla Chair progressed in design as more essentials and technology became available. All this gave birth to the Chilla Chair you see today.

UNIQUE DESIGN

The Chilla Chairs unique design focuses on bringing all the essentials into one package plus more. With the slide out drawer setting the Chilla Chair apart from the rest. The slide out drawer is fantastic for when you are sitting and need to grab something or for all those times when your friends have their stuff in your chilla and need to get at it, well now you remain seated and just show them where the drawer is. Even when you have all your stuff stacked on top in the back of your pickup or on the back seat of your car you can easily access your beverages or food by just sliding out the drawer.

How the Chilla speaker buttons work.

All the Chilla products have the same double function buttons on the speakers. Holding a button will differ to just pushing a button. 
Watch the video below for a demonstration. 
 

The Chilla Chair team would like to offer this revolutionary product to all the Kickstarter's out there with some very exclusive offers and discounts that will be limited to Kickstarter only.

We hope you enjoy our video!!

Risks and challenges

We have a manufacturer in place that is ready to start making the moulds for the production of the Chilla Chair. We also have a distribution centre that is waiting on standby for when those Chilla Chairs start rolling in and out the door.
There have been major challenges along the way with the Chilla Chair. After 12 years of perfecting the idea the design process involved so many aspects such as weight, size, how the handles will stand up to years of use, how will the hinges swing and seal, the wiring for the battery and the LED lights were another hurdle that we were not expecting. Looking back these hurdles were the fun part. Over the last 2 years I have been (with the help of my brother) testing the working prototype for functionality and practicality in all aspects in the great outdoors. Including taking the Chilla Chair onto boats and how the handles stand up to serious amounts of pressure,
