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.
Demonstrates the functionality of the final product, but looks different.

Risks and challenges
SwitchEcho is created by the DFY (Defy) team, a small passionate team from a company with 30+ years of experience in ODM/OEM manufacturing audio products. We tried to use the minimum investment to create some achievements in addition to the company’s revenue, with the less effect on the company’s daily operation. We hope our team can bring innovations and new income to the company.
We have created 5 working prototypes and passed through several user tastings. We are now getting company approval to start the tooling and this is the main reason for us to put this project on Kickstarter to raise for the first tooling fund. If this campaign succeeds, we will start the tooling and mass production by our company's manufacturing partner immediately.
