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.
Looks like the final product, but is not functional.
Appearance and function match the final product, but is made with different manufacturing methods.
Appearance, function, and manufacturing methods match the final product.
Meet the Wrist Rack
It looks like a wrist mounted phone case. But that's just where it starts. The real magic is what you can do, once your hands are truly free!
Wrist Rack assists in many things. Aside from keeping your phone handy, it can act in any number of specific capacities. With everything that people keep telling us about, the list is growing every day. Here are some of our favorites…

Perks & Packaging
We're a bit nutty... about packaging. We simply don't like waste. So instead of a molded styrofoam core to hold the Wrist Rack in shape, we're including an insulated stainless steel tumbler that you will be able to use for years to come. We have a couple of ideas about the shipping package, but are looking for something a bit better before we spill the beans.
Oh and the 'Nice Rack' T-shirts? We may alter these a bit, but here are the prototype sketches for the Mens and Ladies Tees.
We have lots of news & updates coming online during the campaign. Sign up now to stay in touch!

Risks and challenges
We are well equipped to produce Wrist Racks in Custom quantity, but to move to a production model requires and different style and discipline. We have made the necessary supplier arrangements to make the move to production. Should our demand exceed our top end projections, we have in-place multi-decade manufacturers and suppliers that are ready to take over component or full production.
