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

Bandalight
Bandalight

The Bandalight© has been specially designed, to improve your visibility in traffic at night. It’s wearable safety, very comfortable and easy to use!

“No more annoyances about broken dynamo wires, stolen bicycle lights or the continuous attaching and removing of your light units. In a few seconds you are ready to participate safely in traffic at night!”

Bandalights bicycle / bike lights are made of a special adjustable fabric strap, with built in electronics and led units. The waterproof battery unit consists of two AAA batteries. The product can be folded to store in your bag or pocket, so you or your kids never have to forget to bring along bicycle lights. 

If you decide to buy one or more Bandalights, you will have the advantage of using the product even before it will be available via retail shops. You can profit from early delivery and besides that, you are helping us to launch the product on the market.

Risks and challenges

The design of the Bandalight has been made by Springtime, the innovative design agency from "bicycle capital of the world" Amsterdam. Their designers have many years of experience with designing bicycles, lighting systems, bike lights and safety products.

A lot of different designs were tested and we decided that this final design just has it all. It's safe, easy to use and the product is "one size fits all". It's waterproof and has one single battery unit, where the AAA batteries can be easily replaced. The Bandalight is extra safe, because of the reflection strips on the front and the back. The product can be folded to store in your bag or pocket, so you or your kids never have to forget to bring along bicycle lights.

To be able to market the product, we need a first order of 1000 products. With this quantity we can invest in moulds, tools and materials. After the first 1000 products have been sold, we will focus on selling to bicycle shops and online sales via dropshipment, amongst others via Amazon.

With your help we can start building a business and hopefully sell a lot of Bandalights next year. Hopefully the Bandalight will become a standard item in kids' schoolbags, womens' handbags and men's pockets! Thanks' a lot for your contribution and support!

Kind regards, Maarten
