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.

Research has identified young males, shift workers, commercial drivers and people with untreated sleep disorders or with short-term or chronic sleep deprivation as being at increased risk for having a fall-asleep crash.

Over the past two years, we've worked extremely hard to prepare our product for Kickstarter and full-time manufacturing. The Drowse Buster you see in the video is a real, working prototype.
During the manufacturing stages, which include designing and creating the tooling to manufacture a product of this kind, it took us nearly 2 months of lead time to create the mold. In order to achieve the best results, we partner with tooling manufacturers closely and communicate frequently.
As the Drowse Buster gears up for production, minor adjustments were made to improve the final product. Pre-production prototypes are made to test and refine the product. This allows us to incorporate our adjustments according to the feedback we received from testing. This will always be for the benefit of you - the consumer - and we will let you know exactly how and why any changes are made.
We will be working with certified manufacturers who have years of experience delivering excellent products in enormous quantities. There will no doubt be some surprises along the road, but any obstacle will be addressed by combining our internal knowledge with external expertise, and an overall goal of making the best possible product for you, our Drowse Buster customer.
With your support, we can bring Drowse Buster onto ears worldwide. While we're close to entering packaging, your contribution will help fund:
