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.

What is a Butterfly Key?

Butterfly Keys are inspired by the Balisong Butterfly Knife. However, It holds a key blank inside instead of a sharp blade.


The handles of the Butterfly Key measure approx 25mm in diameter and 70mm in length when closed and approx 125mm in an open position. 

It is smaller than traditional Balisong handles, so it can fit neatly into a pocket or purse. Each key is produced from one solid block of Billet 6061T6 Aluminum (used for tactical flashlights, Audi R8 chassis, and even military aircraft!) 

It is available in a stunning variety of anodized colors, as well as classic polished chrome. 


The superb properties of Aluminum make it the ideal material for the Butterfly Key: it is lightweight, has an impressive tensile strength and is also anti-rust and scratch resistant. We have also added a keyring to the latch of the butterfly key so it can be attached to any keychain.

 

 

 



How does it work?

Steps:

1) Get your Butterfly Key Blank
2) Take it to local locksmith and have it cut according to your current key
3) Step 3 is to enjoy your awesome key toy, practice tricks and show it off!
