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.
The GAMETIME SCOREBOARD is the world's first portable, water-resistant & app-controlled scoreboard & audio player.
FREE iOS APP
Connect to the free Gametime iOS app to control all aspects of the scoreboard, including score, time, music, microphone, and customizable stadium sound effects, all at a range of 165'/50m or more. We need your support to help us develop an Android version of the app, and add features and content.
Set the superbright LED's to their brightest for bright outdoor settings, or save power for indoor games. Gametime also has Clock Mode, displaying the current time as synced with the app, while still being able to play music or use the microphone.

THE GAMETIME STORY
Filip Ivanovski, President of Gametime Technologies, had an idea to combine a scoreboard with music to create a fun and functional product to make sports more entertaining during games and practices.
Gametime Technologies was founded by a discovery of matching abilities within the partners. As the inventor of the Gametime Scoreboard, Filip Ivanovski connected to Antoine Paradis and Ismael Frechette and formed as of three founders with varying contributing strengths.
Our intention is to use technology to create products that set a new standard of how sports are played for the everyday person. The Gametime Scoreboard is the foundation for those products.
Filip, the recipient of the Governor General of Canada's Medal for Volunteers, explains: “After two years of development and establishing a strong retail network, I am thrilled to present the sports industry with a product that uses the latest technology to transform the athletic experience into something dynamic. As a company, we’re committed to making that experience available and accessible to everyone, to promoting school sports and community leagues.”
WHAT WE CAN DO
Gametime has developed longstanding relationships with a dedicated team of engineers, designers, developers, salespeople, manufacturing & distribution partners. As such, we have the ability to design & produce, distribute, advertise, and sell new products.
We currently have a limited production run arriving in November, earmarked for this campaign and guaranteed to ship before the holidays (at latest, Dec. 20th). We expect the country-wide vacation related to Chinese New Years to delay bulk shipping to March 2018, though we may ship faster.
WHY WE NEED YOUR SUPPORT
Gametime needs your help to fund:
Development of the Android App and new app features
Purchase of inventory and long-lead time components
Multi-platform advertising & promotion
Risks and challenges
While we have assembled a strong strategy for most key departments ensuring in a solid corporate foundation, we have identified certain areas that we still consider a work in progress and still not finalized. They include:
App Development Partners:
We have received quotes from strong local and overseas developers and will select our supplier upon completion of the campaign.
Successful Marketing Campaigns:
We need to ensure that the ROI on our marketing initiatives. This risk of missing our mark is countered by strong research into where our demographics are located and their habits. By being laser focussed on who will benefit by the Gametime Scoreboard and using strong data, we hope to maximize our Marketing Strategy.
Efficient Logistics Strategy:
Determining the best strategy and partners to fulfill a global customer base is essential to minimizing the shipping costs.
Minimizing Manufacturing Lead times by Purchasing Long Lead Time Components:
Certain components for the unit have longer lead times for production. We would like to bulk order certain of those components to shorten the production lead time.
While we initially developed the product for the institutional market (schools, teams, leagues etc.), this campaign will allow us to test the Gametime Scoreboard in the home market.
