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.
We've re-imagined the way vinyl records can be displayed on a wall. As record lovers - we set out to develop the most versatile, functional, and beautiful record display case in the world.
The result is a beautiful, frame-free, fully protective case that displays records or covers. Plus, it's easy to open so your record is accesible at all times.
We developed CLRCASE from the ground up. We departed from traditional frame concept and developed a clear polished acrylic outer housing that shows more of the record, we developed a reversible spindle adaptor to display records or record covers, and we added quick release tabs that make it easy to access your records at any time.
We designed CLRCASE to fit seamlessly in a variety of spaces, from a college dorm room to an art gallery. The design is minimalist, clean, and tasteful.
CLRCASE enhances the way we experience records. It can function as a stationary display case while serving as resting point between the shelf and turntable. By making it easy to open and operate, records can flow from shelf to wall to turntable.
Traditional record frames/displays only display record covers. CLRCASE displays record covers or records, giving you the choice of what you'd like to display.
We've created a patent pending clear acrylic casing which offers improved visibility while protecting your record from dust & damage. It's beautiful, protective, and functional.
Plus, it's easy to open.
Your records are never out of reach while on display. The patent-pending quick release handles make it easy to access your record at any time.
You can switch from record to record cover with ease using the patent pending spindle adaptor. The spindle side hangs records with ease, and tucks away to display record covers.
Every CLRCASE will be custom manufactured, hand polished, and assembled in Southern California by a manufacturer with over 30 years experience.
We're using only the finest quality polished acrylic and materials for CLRCASE. The molds will be made locally by a master mold-maker who specializes in lens-quality clear acrylic parts.
We've developed CLRCASE for everyone from the first time record buyer to the lifelong collector. It's something we love and use, and we know you'll love it too. CLRCASE is for you.
With your support we can cover the cost of making the molds and properly manufacturing CLRCASE. Together we can make this happen.
We Can Ship Anywhere in the World We can ship to pretty much anywhere in the world through our order fulfillment center. If your country isn't listed, just let us know and we'll add it on there.
From The Creator of CLRCASE My grampa pressed records for most of his life. His attention to detail, blue collar work ethic, and love of his craft showed in everything he worked on.
CLRCASE showcases the artistry and craftsmanship that goes into making each and every vinyl record.
