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

MagiKit is an RFID Phone Case with NFC functionality for iPhone user's. Millions of iPhone user's use access key cards on a daily basis for Work, Transportation, and Access to Housing Communities. MagiKit saw an opportunity to create a product that would solve the problem of no one with an Apple iPhone being able to participate in NFC technology. That's because the NFC reader built into iPhones since the release of the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus has only been used by Apple Pay. 

MagiKit’s solution is based on the concept of connecting your digital key card and mobile phone together. MagiKit combines your access key with the high-tech MagiKit case to give you convenience at your fingertips. The phone case contains two built-in mini cards for access control, operating at 125KHz and 13.56MHz frequency.You are able to incorporate your access key card to the MagiKit Case by two ways. First, you can directly place your access credential into the custom slot in the MagiKit Case that is suitable for any ISO card. Second, you can directly incorporate your access credential by emulating it to the case, where there are two built-in mini cards for access control for work or your place of choice.

Public Transportation

MagiKit is an ideal solution for public transportation making access quick and easy. Simply slide your public transportation card into the slot inside the phone case, and now your ready to tap & go. 

Work

MagiKit's Standard Function can also be used in the workplace. Slide your credential into the slot inside the case suitable for any iso card. Tap the lower back portion of the case.

MagiKit's Advanced Function is best for those who must use their access credential for identification. Combine our MagiKit Case and MagiKit Box to incorporate your key card to one of the two Mini-cards inside the top portion of the case. Use the top back portion of the case.

MagiKit’s solution is based on the concept of connecting your digital key card and mobile phone together. MagiKit currently offers pattern and solid cases. Our pattern cases come in Orange, Black, and Light Blue. MagiKit’s solid cases only come in Dark Blue. 

How it Works

Standard Function

Each MagiKit case comes equipped with our Standard and Advanced function. Our Standard function is the ability for user to simply place their RFID ISO Access Credential into the case for quick access. This can be done by simply sliding your badge or key card into the pocket provided within the case. Place your phone into the case and you are ready to use.

 Advanced Function

The Advanced Function is recommended for users who must still show their badge for identification. MagiKits Advanced function requires the use of the MagiKit Box, MagiKit case, and MagiKit APP. The Advanced function uses the technology from the MagiKit Box and App to encode your Access Credential into one of the two built in mini-cards in the case. This will give you the ability to use your cell phone as your access card and no longer need to reach for your key card. For step by step instructions on how to use the Advanced Function, please refer to How It Works PDF file.

Risks and challenges

What unique challenges might we face after our project is successfully funded?

MagiKit is based on existing technology, making the developmental risks low. For the most part our RFID/NFC experience mitigate any development risks. We have already engineered through any potential barriers as demonstrated in our working case prototypes for the iPhone 6/6s, 7/8. Our products prime purpose is providing the user with a convenient and available option for access control.

The only challenge MagiKit faces at the moment is that we can not ensure 100% compatibility with every RFID card in the market. Currently MagiKit is confident 90% of all low frequency RFID cards in the market will work when trying to emulate your Iso card to the MagiKit Case. Similarly, MagiKit cannot ensure that a 100% of the high frequency cards in the market are compatible with the MagiKit advanced function.
