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

Hi, my name is Espen and I´ve made a new boat concept with electric engines. It revolves around comfort and ease of use, in orbit with electric power and a silent marine experience.

I´m personally very hard to satisfy... :) But sometimes my designs even surprise myself, and I´m somewhat mesmerized with the feeling of how close something can be, thus so far away after all..

My goal with this kickstarter campaign is to gather enough money to invest in better production equipment, this will enable me to continue to offer a cheap and reliable, environmentally friendly new transportation option to all who travels on water.

Risks and challenges

- As the prototype is already finished and most tests are completed, there is no development risk involved in this campaign.

- Due to a simple 3 element assembly solution, I only need 2 production "molds"/casts/blocks/rmc/smc.. Final amount decides the casting approach.

- I´ve estimated a production capability of about 15 units by the end of March 2018 if this kickstarter campaign is unsuccessful, so there will be at least 15 lucky new el. boat owners by next summer.

- Shipment to potentially all corners of the EU region will be the biggest wheel to turn smoothly, within published time limits and cost.

- Non-EU buyers can contact me on mail and I´ll place your order and assist/arrange shipment, please note that at least 5 buyers from same country/port will reduce shipment cost.)

- Unforseen events should always be mentioned even though they cannot be forseen, but I guess that´s the big thrill of the will.. :)

Sincerly, Espen-André Bodin
