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.

Hello Kickstarter! 

Our team at Nu Interactions is looking at how we can make our everyday communications more meaningful and fun.

Digital communication has made it easier for us to reach our loved ones, but it's just not the same. We felt that physical emotional presence was lacking and we've had others share our sentiment.  

That’s why we created nomi, a portable emotive device that allows users to send and receive tangible emojis and interact with loved ones through play. Have nomi keep you company or connect with your friends for play and other exciting group interactions!

You can change your pledge by clicking "Manage My Pledge" after you've backed the project! 

 

Nomi will be one of our many products in our mission to develop products that help us make our interactions more meaningful. Nomi will be developed to be more emotionally intelligent making it not only an emotive communication interface but also a compact smart companion able to assist you. 

Look out for our next exciting venture! :)

 

 

 

 

 

 

Risks and challenges

nomi is our first product that we are bringing to manufacturing. We still have lots to learn with regards to bringing our prototype to manufacturing and fulfillment. Funds raised here on Kickstarter will be dedicated to pay for the tooling and upfront manufacturing costs.

Our team is currently on the right track to bring nomi to our backers. With our current prototype of nomi, we are in talks with manufacturers and partners to realise nomi. We also commit to providing our backers prompt and honest updates if things do not go as planned and will work to resolve it quickly.

Our team strives to ensure that when nomi reaches your hands, it will provide you the best experience possible and bring a smile to your face!
