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.

Standing 45cm (18 inches) tall, this is big, in fact one of the largest reproductions of the Endoskeleton skull ever produced.  Our T-800 speaker, made from polished alloy, provides a combination of tweeter and subwoofer producing crisp, clear sound and powerful bass. Each eye features illuminated red sockets for further authenticity. What’s more, the left eye is actually a high-definition camera which records video for live viewing or upload to Cloud storage with our App.

The fine detail of the Endoskeleton skull utilises a special manufacturing process that ensures that every single speaker is absolutely unique.

Kickstarter community members pledging for our limited availability special serial numbers T-800, will have your pledge shipped in a deluxe collectors' box made from durable, non-board materials, and never to be made available at retail, for added collectibility. You also get to specify a personalised plaque on your speaker featuring your name or other script – this, too,  will never be offered at retail.

Why Kickstarter?

We are a young company continually developing our craft. Our Terminator T-800 is by far the most advanced, and therefore complex, project we've worked on to date. Adding Wi-Fi, video camera and Alexa to our award-winning Bluetooth speaker functionality will require detailed, precision design and manufacture on a whole new level. Incorporating several complex technologies in a single unit requires a great deal of time and expensive expertise. Our local University is helping us develop the software. The quality of the materials and components, from the audio speakers through the chip sets on the circuit board right through to the fine, fully-reflective polished alloy used for the exterior all come at high cost. We're proud of that, because we want our T-800 to be the very best it can be. That's why we've come to Kickstarter. We need the support of you guys to deliver our vision, one that we hope you share with us. Only your pledges can provide the development funds needed to get us over the finishing line.

Do we make great speakers? Here's what the press have said about our other range.

Now we've seen, and heard, those (speakers) in flesh too and can't think of a better pressy for a sci-fi or gaming geek this Christmas

This is an amazing product…… when I got this out of the box I was just blown away…..I love how it looks and how it sounds.
This is an amazing product…… when I got this out of the box I was just blown away…..I love how it looks and how it sounds.

 

 

The speaker not only sounds great but it looks great too! Even when you are not using it, it is still a conversation piece sitting there on your shelf. The HALO Master Chief Bluetooth Speaker from AC Worldwide is a must for any HALO fan!

 

I’ve been reviewing tech on Impulse Gamer for quite a long time and it’s not that often that I’m blown away, however ACWorldwide have definitely challenged me in 2017 when it comes to one of the most coolest looking speakers that I’ve had the pleasure of using. Set-up is easy, audio is good but more importantly, it’s identical to the head of C-3PO himself and that’s where this product excels.

 

These stunning Star Wars speakers are as much a fan collectible as they are capable Bluetooth speaker, thanks to attention to detail and cool design. 5 Stars

 

Verdict: The AC Worldwide Star Wars speakers are the ultimate collectible every true fan of the series should seriously consider. 4.5/5

 

A new pair of Star Wars Bluetooth speakers …. With creators AC Worldwide manufacturing devices that don’t rely on their brand name alone, as these awesome speakers also boast surprisingly impressive audio quality.

 

The quality of the speaker’s output is magnificent…I would go so far as to say it’s one of, if not THE, best Bluetooth speaker I’ve used. Try as I might I have absolutely nothing bad to say about the Star Wars C-3PO Bluetooth speaker. Everything about it is seriously impressive and for the price point it’s easily the best Bluetooth speaker I’ve discovered yet. The remarkable design is definitely a bonus (and likely a big draw) but you should buy this speaker for its unrivalled audio quality. If there were a speaker out there that is a better buy than this one, I’d love someone to tell me about it. I suspect no other speaker in this price range will come even close. The force is most definitely strong with this one.

Sometimes a new release lands, be it comic, clothing, collectible or something entirely different and it totally hits the right button. For me, this Bluetooth speaker from the gang at AC Worldwide has done just that.

Risks and challenges

License:
The Terminator™: T-800 speaker has been developed by AC Worldwide with full support and license from Studiocanal.
Products presented on this Kickstarter page and during the campaign may be subject to change in order to meet the expectations of the Studiocanal licensing agreement.

Please note under the terms of our license we may not ship to China.

Challenges
There are many challenges that come with designing an audio/video product of this size and mass while maintaining our absolute commitment to faithfully reproduce the original Terminator T-800. These include: Circuitry design, mould creation, software development, audio output testing, production, QA, shipping and licensor approval. However, as an award-winning licensed Bluetooth speaker manufacturer, and having already produced four such creations to date, we are well placed to surmount these challenges.

We expect to ship T-800 by February 2018 but please understand this is only an estimate. We have to date designed and manufactured four iconic character speakers and we know that there can be unanticipated extra time requirements to perfect the modelling and moulds, the character reproduction and the audio quality, to which we've now added video and Alexa features.

Below are shipping estimates for the ACW T-800 multimedia speaker. Costs may rise due to possible weight/volume increases required in the finished product.
UK: £20
Europe: £30
USA/Canada: £40

Individual orders from hard-to-access addresses may be subject to a different shipping charge: we will assess these on an individual basis.
