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

Oz: the smart wallet 

Oz the smart wallet is the first intelligent slim wallet made with smart alerts, credit card safety measures, and location tracking. The slender leather wallet alerts the owner through a smartphone when misplaced. The phone app can locate the wallet in an instant through a location map, and by sound and signal strength when in proximity. The wallet is covered with RFID protection material. It is beautifully simple, stylish, and intuitively unique. 

Erotes

Erotes is a leather bifold wallet with a flip ID holder. It has six credit card holders on each side, with two hidden pocket underneath. This wallet maximizes holding capacity with the minimum bulk. Three different colors are available: Black, Burnt Umber Brown, and Midnight Blue. 

 Lofn 

Lofn offers a vertical layout with a compact and cute trifold design. Each side folds has two card holders with one more in the center. An ID holder is in the centerfold. Lofn's extra compactness allows it to be placed in places you would not have expected before. Three colors are available: Chocolate Brown, Midnight Blue, and French Fuchsia.

How does it work

The Tracker

The MYNT tracker will provide a range of location tracking services. The app shows the GPS coordinate of the wallet when the tracker is connected to the smartphone. The app provides a map that indicates the relative GPS location. In proximity, the app shows the distance between the wallet and the owner through signal strength bar and the alarm melody.

Smart Notice 

When the wallet is misplaced or simply falls out of a pocket, the smart app automatically generates a separation alarm on the phone. The notice distance can be adjusted to user preference. The alarm works both ways, that both the phone and the wallet will generate alarm once separated. 

When looking for the wallet in close proximity, ring the wallet so you can hear the Beep. Push down the button on the wallet to ring the phone as well.

Smart Notice when the wallet is misplaced, you may adjust the distance when this notice appears by changing the settings in the MYNT app.

 Anti RFID 

The wallet is embedded with RFID/NFC blocking material that protects your credit cards from wireless skimming and data theft. The outer layers are covered with the protection material, while the inner layer is not, so cards can be accessed easily when the wallet is opened by the user. 

Product design

Complete integration of advanced technology in one wallet: we want the wallet to be reliable and smart with the augmented wearable techs. The MYNT tracker and remote embedded in the wallet has a powerful chip that gives the wallet the essential smart abilities.

Finding the right manufacturer for the perfect quality: we searched among the wallet manufacturers and found the right one that ensures reliable quality. 

The MYNT tracker

MYNT is the most advanced personal item tracker on the market. The tracker has a chip that is the most advanced on trackers, which allows it to generate alarms and remote control things with wit and appropriateness. The signal range is between 50 feet to 150 feet. The MYNT app supports a range of customized user settings. The app provides the user setting for alarm range and sensitivity: with lower sensitivity for delayed alarm, while higher sensitivity for instant alarm. The app also provides Safe Zone settings where alarms will not be generated at home or office. This award winning tracker will hardly be noticeable in the wallet. 

 Everything integrated into one wallet: Oz the smart wallet.

Timeline

Concept conceived at the beginning of 2016: attending a festival in the Golden Gate Park, San Francisco, a wallet was misplaced and never found again. With luck, the credit cards were not used by anyone, but replacing the driver's license was a hassle, not to mention the loss of identification information. We need a wallet that will first prevent being lost, and if lost, it can be found easily. 

Design created March 2016: we planned for a slim and stylish wallet. The layout should provide great utility, and the size should be less bulky. We traveled countless hours in Macy's and Nordstrom. We also sought after great designer wallets for inspiration. 

Prototype created May 2016: we tested the prototypes and selected two  appealing designs. The MYNT app is integrated with the two chosen designs. 

Found the right manufacturer June 2016: we carefully selected from a pool of ten manufacturers, ensuring that our partner would supply the best product with quality assurance and timely delivery. 

Preparing for the campaign, July 2016: we gathered the team and set out our Kickstarter campaign plan. The time to bring this great concept into fruition has come. 

Run- Early October 2016: we need your support and interest for this product to enter the market. With your boost order, we will be able to provide this smart wallet to all that have lost a wallet and tasted the confusion and hassle of losing important valuables. 

Deliver November: the manufacturer will begin the production during halfway of the campaign run. Delivery will take place beginning one week after the campaign. 

Risks and challenges

We conducted research of the compatibility between crowdfunding and our project. We had in-depth meetings with a range of firms that were successfully funded on kickstarter to learn from their mistakes. Despite our capabilities and the possibilities with this product, we decided to offer limited customizability. Our goal is to make our backers happy and avoid empty promises. We are honest and responsive and will make sure to stay completely transparent towards our backers.

CHALLENGES AHEAD:

We work with two suppliers for the components of the wallet. The main challenge that we will face is synchronizing these suppliers. When mass production starts, the suppliers will have to follow tight schedules and make sure each component arrives at the final assembly station in time. We have full control over the production process and have backup suppliers in case the product process needs additional help.
