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.

STRETCH GOAL:

Florescent and Metallic gel ink options that are also available.  You can vote your preference under the comments section.  These are colors besides the black and red we already have.  The sparkles are part of the Accessories/DIY Kit under Add-Ons.

My students often ask me how I am able to do it after the loss of my brother.  I tell them, because the world has to hear it.  That is why I am presenting The Original Magnetdabbles RIGHT NOW which was conceived five years ago with careful thoughtful meticulous planning out of every small detail until perfected to give you the best pen design, high-quality gel inks, superior magnet selection, and great feel.  Guaranteed to give you the best options possible. We learned a lot and that is why there is no other pen out there that can do a fraction of what Magnetdabbles can do.(More under FAQ).

Most of us without thinking fidget with something while pondering a project, listening, or working through a problem. What if there was a pen that you could write with in black ink and with the flip of the wrist you could instantly trace, underline and/or circle in red, has multiple functions, was very applicable, easily accessible and could even satisfy your fidgeting needs? Magnetdabbles can help!

 

Our Patented Magnetdabbles are high quality performing dual-tip ink gel pens with great feel that provide endless opportunities for children(my students) and adults alike to fidget, play, create, build, or to use as a tool to focus their attention. Our USA Manufacturer is only a driving distance away and ready to go once we build enough inventory with your help.

 

 

 

30 seconds of your time could make the difference in growing our Magnetdabbles community. Click one of the buttons here and tag a friend or coworker who can't stop fidgeting.

 

 

Create the atmosphere you want. Magnetdabbles are the only one-of-a-kind that allow for an image, phrase or photo to go across multiple pens.

Challenges that came up while in the process of getting Magnetdabbles going included the life of my brother being taken from him prematurely and dealing with Magnetips who caused us to postpone our relaunch until now.  Regardless of what road blocks arise, we will keep moving forward.  Both talked about in depth on our youtube LINK at the bottom of the page.

 

 'My best friends have eight special needs children -- many of them are the type of kids who could totally use something like your invention. Frankly, I am looking forward to playing with it myself since my first reaction when I saw the video was "Wow, cool!" But really, the possibility of providing something like this to the kids who could truly benefit was my driving factor in choosing my MEGA-PACK pledge level. Best of luck with the campaign! I'll be sharing it on my Facebook page shortly!' Super-MegaBacker

Artists and Author, Stephen Bjorklund, gives his critique on the quality, feel, and overall performance of our dual-tip pen in action.

Whether in a school or office environment, at home, or waiting in line, many people like to have a diversion for their fingers and this can help relieve stress or anxiety.

It is widely recognized that children and adults with special needs benefit from fidget toys since they find them to be both soothing and reassuring. Thank you again, to the two proud moms that showed the world how their children with autism, ADHD and special needs can interact and benefit from Magnetdabbles in our campaign video.

'As someone with ADD and as an engineer who loves nerdy gadgets to help her focus, I am so excited for this project! Something that can satisfy my nervous energy, channel focus and attention by engaging tactile senses and is a dual tipped writing implement....Oh Great Googly Moogly, y'all got a winner here! In order to help this campaign along I've posted about it on Facebook and am going to present it to colleagues at an upcoming engineering society meeting. I hope it helps this campaign reach its goal because I truly want to see this succeed ~ and I am personally looking forward to trying it out. GOOD LUCK!!!' Amazing Backer

Super strong magnets draw other Magnetdabbles together, enabling the user to invent endless fun tricks and stunts. Multiple Magnetdabbles can be used like building blocks to build three-dimensional models which can be flipped, folded and stacked.

Use them to stick documents to the fridge or to a magnetic board, or as an educational tool for counting, learning shapes and colors, the concept of 'more and less' to develop fine motor skills, sharing and empathy, tactile awareness, and more!

Focus Better: If fidget toys help people of all ages and abilities to concentrate, and therefore perform better, imagine what Magnetdabbles can do.

Dual-Tip Pen: Magnetdabbles are more than just a fidget or toy. They have functionality and purpose.

The Ready Pen: No more looking around all over for a pen. It's right there on the refrigerator.

Environmental Friendly: When you're ink runs out, only have to refill your ink and keep the rest of your magnetic pen.

Promotional Pen Edge for your business: Magnetdabbles are the only pens where you can have one image/logo/phrase across more than one pen for a full image which will be the talking point for many conversations and bring your event, business or organization great publicity.

Promotes Learning: Magnetdabbles will work great as a sensory manipulative and great educational tool. Now counting, stacking and building is much easier and motivating.

Give Back: Every pledge will also benefit organizations associated with autism, ADHD, other special needs, schools or programs.

Magnetdabbles, pronounced 'magne-da-bles' takes this concept one step further. We have been hard at work bringing you an innovative design that incorporates a dual-tip pen into a magnetic casing, thereby creating a writing instrument that is easy to hold, writes in two different colored inks, is refillable, and can be used as a ruler or to draw around and for tracing straight-edged shapes.

 

 

 

If you pledge $21 or more we have an assortment of nifty Add-Ons that you can add to your Magnetdabbles pledge (Choose from $7.00 and/or $13.00 optons). Simply add the price of the Add-Ons you want to your final pledge amount. After the campaign ends, we will contact each backer to verify add-on choices.  With three or more Add-Ons shipping cost will be added.

 

 

Our funding goal was set as is, we feel we can fulfill all our commitments and bring forth an awesome product.  Funds raised for this launch will go towards the tooling and molding to help us make Magnetdabbles possible. We have an awesome team in place that will continue to work hard for you to make sure you get the best product possible. We worked very closely with our designers to make the coolest most amazing magnetic pens and we have the prototypes to prove it. We are all in. Our team has meticulously planned out every detail of our campaign and we belief you will love what you see. Thank You again.

 

 

 

   

 

 

 

   

 

 

 

 

 

Risks and challenges

Our team has spent countless hours planning and preparing for this campaign. We have done this before and we don't foresee any risks or challenges. As the case for any unforeseen reason a challenge arises, we will deal with it head on, overcome it and most importantly be very transparent with you our backers who we are so very honored and thankful to, for believing that we can bring a great product to surface, and positively influence students and people all around the world with hope and a dream that says, nothing is impossible.

As stated in my bio, I overcame my biggest obstacle with the tragic loss of my brother, and if that wasn't enough when we looked and relaunching in March/April as I stated in FAQ we were definitely shocked to see a similar product. We were forced to postpone, but we took advantage of the extra time and further perfected our product and have all our manufacturing in order and ready to go. I am determined, we will make do on our campaign promises.
