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

There are few times in life when your past marries the present in a product that perfectly describes who you are . . . bacon-flavored cupcakes may be one – but this game controller garage door control is surely another.  

As a child of the 80's maybe there was more to your life than Nintendo . . . nah. Controlling the world since 1985. You might be a staid, suburban parent of 3 – but you can cherish each glorious power-up every time you pull into your garage. Just watch out for those banana peels!  

Designed to work with nearly every type of garage door opener you need only to tell us the brand you have and we can get you the device with the correct frequency.  

Why did we do this? Because generic garage door openers are boring. Let's have a little bit of fun in life, let's remind ourselves of the things we enjoy. Now that you've fit the blocks of your life together and become a legend in your universe you can live a fantasy with your super brothers of the contras. Bring those happy memories back into your life. Having fun and playing some great games, those were good times that are worth remembering.  

 

 

 

 

 

Risks and challenges

We are up to the task regardless of how this campaign goes. If a large volume of orders comes in we'll require some more time to scale up production and place orders for larger quantities. None of this is leading edge technology. Really all of it is well proven so there aren't any technical hurdles to overcome just delivery schedules to meet.
