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.

In memory of the end of World War in 1945, introducing the GP1945 PRO Bolt Action Pen. AN NON-VIOLENT NON-SILENT PEN. Patenting.    All Stretch Goal UNLOCKED / Share on Facebook / Tweet

 

 

 

Refining the bolt action mechanism, we prototyped rounds and rounds to integrate the right amount of force, smooth turn-around corners to secure the tip in the pen instead of ink all over your pockets. Center bolt placement is addictive and fun to fidget in 2 different holding positions.

A traditional whistle produces a monotone high pitched sound to grab attention from the rescuer. However, a monotone sound can easily get lost in the wind. The GP1945 pen is integrated with a loud, up to 100 dB PRO whistle which is uniquely designed to produce a variety of tones to attract.

Adjust the vibration of the air by sliding your fingers along the pen clip air tunnel while blowing the whistle. It is also a simple musical instrument, a bird attractor to bring you extra fun when it is not serving as your rescuer.

Finger rest area is precisely-machined with diamond knurling texture (AL). It is dimensioned thoughtfully for a comfortable and sturdy grip while providing a quick reference to measurements of the commonly used 1 inch” and 10 millimeters.

Made of tungsten steel, the super compact glass breaker is on top of the GP1945 Pen. Different than the regular window breaker pen that has a narrow front.

The GP 1945 has a sharp but safer and wider push away tip. When the tempered glass is breaking, the wider tip will push the fragments away from your hand in an emergency.

 

Pledge additional $8 for a MG-CORE Fire Starter, make GP1945 your most compact survival EDC.

The MG-CORE is always protected inside the GP1945 body, take it out only if you need the fire to warm you up in an emergency.

The MG-Core can work with any hard edges or surfaces, including the steel tip on the top. *you don't have to scratch the pen body even on the Aluminum version.

The GP-Grip PRO Special Edition is for Jeep Wrangler owners. Cast aluminum grab handle has 2 openings on the outer pouch to store your GP1945. 

And it is the only foldable handle that gives you a full window view, integrated with a secret inner pocket to store your cards and emergency money.

Having passed a 4500 lbs Jeep Wrangler road test, the GP 1945 Bolt Action Aluminum Pen is tough built for lifetime use. The Titanium version is extraordinarily tough, stronger than gold. On top of that, the TC4 Titanium we hand-picked has much higher strength than the commonly used TA1 Titanium. 

Never lost your pen with our tight-fit pen clip. 

There are details we put into the GP1945 pen clip: 1. DYNAMIC to complement the overall GP1945 pen. 2. LOW profile, more integrated. 3. SMOOTH leading tip with a nice ramp. 4. More CONTACT surface notch to your pocket or notebook. 5. Two different heights to catch different thickness edges TIGHTLY. 6. Thickness INCREASED.

The black ink refill size is compatible with LAMY M22, GPCA.us will continue to supply refills for online purchase worldwide.

Stretch Goal 3 unlocked to celebrate the raw Titanium look with a PRO-Grade polish finish.

As your EDC champion, regardless of whether you are a hard worker, nature explorer, outdoor adventurist, or photographer, the GP 1945 in either Titanium, Steel, or Aluminum will be your daily essential and your warrior for many years to come.
