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.

About

If you are a sailor, camper, or outdoor adventure seeker, sometimes you need to find your boat, tent or something else in the dark, possibly among many others. Usual lights make your assets visible, but don't allow you to identify yours among many others - this is exactly what iSeeTheLight does. Using your mobile phone, you can set it to show any colour light sequence, which is uniquely yours and will be instantly recognizeable from up to 1 mile.

As of now, iSeeTheLight is being produced using 3D printer for casing and manual assembly, in small quantities. To be able to produce it in bigger quantities, we need funding for:

  • Developing an app for iPhone, similar to already existing Android version
  • Modify the casing design to suit injection molding technology (so that it will look nice, and will be more waterproof), set up the tooling and production
  • Automated electronics assembly

Customization (e.g. custom device names, pre-programmed light signals) might be possible on a case by case basis upon request.

More info on the official website http://ftsdesign.biz/iseethelight/index.html

Risks and challenges

The biggest risk is that working with the casing manufacturer in China may take longer than expected.
