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.

Risks and challenges
Manufacturing is a time-consuming process, but our team has done everything possible to ensure we are able to deliver our Remote Carry-Ons on time.
We have many years of manufacturing experience, and we are partnering with supply chain and manufacturing experts for advice and assistance with production, engineering and retail management.
We have already sourced factories in Asia for all of Remote Carry-On’s major components, thanks to the long-term working relationships with manufacturers we have developed over the last ten years working on various other product launches.
On the logistics side, we have assessed potential US fulfillment houses and international shippers to help the Remote Carry-Ons get to backers, quickly.
While we are certain to face unexpected challenges throughout this journey, we are dedicated to solving them quickly, and we pledge to keep our backers up-to-date throughout the entire production process.
