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.
For the 2 million people who cycle every day, close passes are an almost daily occurrence.
Close passes are really intimidating and account for around a third of all threatening incidents between drivers and cyclists.
Those people who drove too close to the officers were pulled over, and through the use of a safe pass mat, officers demonstrated to them what they had done wrong. In the worst cases, drivers were reported for careless driving.
Incredibly, driving behaviour in the local area changed overnight, with a 50 per cent reduction of reported close pass offences in less than three months.
