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.

Prototype Gallery

These photos and videos provide a detailed look at this project’s development.

It was on a flight to Costa Rica when I decided to take a nap in coach and woke up with an idea that could make sleeping way more comfortable in many different napping positions; sitting upright, head down on a table, laying down on your side, on your back, cradled in a hammock, and many different other ways. 

The material I used had to be soft and the fill had to be light weight but still very supportive for a long time. After 20 different iterations, we nailed it. 

The overall shape and fill amount is perfect which fits securely around your head and supports your neck laying down flat. It can be flipped upside down and put around your neck to keep your head from falling over or it can even be threaded around your arms to rest your head on. 

If you just want to rest your head on it like a regular pillow, it can be used in that way as well! With so many ways of using this product, it opens the door for further development that we are currently working on.

Every pillow will be cut and sewn in our sewing shop using state of the art cutting technology and sewn by a group of very talented seamsters who immigrated or were refugees from Mexico, Iraq, Syria, Guatemala, and Honduras. 

Our goal is that the Dream Goggles project will not only be something that you will enjoy and use for a very long time but also continue our growth and support cut and sew manufacturing in the United States.

Help us launch Dream Goggles and become a part of our dream!

Risks and challenges

The only risk we have on this project is delivering every supporter their gift by the end of March 2018. We anticipate being able to deliver 500-1000 of them by that time initially but if we receive many more than that expectation, then we will be producing until April or May 2018.
