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.

WorldMapPortal is the first mixed reality map that offers you instant access to the world. You will be exposed to actual cultures, people, animals, landscapes, and monuments that model reality.

 

“The World. Right at Your Fingertips.” 

We developed WorldMapPortal for people to be able to explore the countries they want to go to through virtual tours that we offer. WorldMapPortal consists of an interactive world map, an app, and a VR viewer. With the map and the app, you’re all set to go! You can embark on virtual tours simply by selecting a country on the map.

There are so many countries in the world and so many that you want to visit! But we know that may not always be easy because traveling requires time, money, and other resources.  Not everyone can travel all over the world, but we want to give everyone that opportunity! What if you could instantly immerse yourself into various countries and cultures? With WorldMapPortal, you now have the opportunity to learn about cultures and let your imaginations run wild in a safe and engaging setting.

The way we learn about other countries has remained the same for more than a century. It’s time to change the way we learn! We have developed WorldMapPortal by adopting a mixture of VR and AR technologies. When you look at the map though our VR viewer, you will find animated 3-D characters or objects designed specifically to model real-life settings of each country. The adventure never stops with the WorldMapPortal!

Augmented Reality technology superimposes a computer-generated overlay on a user’s view of the real world. The WorldMapPortal app displays the live feed from your smartphone’s camera. Even though there are no flags on the map, you can see them through our app. Just change your viewpoint by moving and looking around!

WorldMapPortal is the perfect way to escape your routine life to embark on the getaway of your choice. You can now go anywhere you want, anytime!

Learn about local attractions and unique histories behind worldly landmarks. WorldMapPortal makes learning fun by giving you interesting educational information about various cultures and histories. Audio narrations enhance and motivate your children to learn about other countries and cultures.

Along the tour, there will be narrations to give you more insight and information about each place you are visiting. The information includes all kinds of aspects including histories, local culture, and background stories.

We offer two versions of maps. Make sure to choose one that you like when you back our project!

  • Size : 841 X 1,189mm, 33.1 X 46.8”
  • Material: Polyester
  • Our map is very strong and durable

Discover the spectacle of the world in Virtual Reality with the VR viewer! This device will offer you a completely immersive VR experience with a panoramic view!

It is really easy to assemble our VR viewer and will only take you 30 seconds! After assembly, just put your smartphone into the VR viewer. You are now ready to embark on a virtual tour by starting the WorldMapPortal app! 


The WorldMapPortal application is available for download on both Android and Apple smartphone devices.

  • Phone Mode: Your smartphone displays the live feed from the smartphone’s camera so you can see what’s around you.
  • VR Mode: The VR viewer offers you a full range of an immersive VR experience, so you will feel as if you are physically there, at the location of your choice!

The VR lobby from the WorldMapPortal app is a virtual showroom that offers you a variety of options. You can also choose the country you want to explore by focusing on an animated 3-D object ,and it’ll open an incredibly engaging gate way for you to learn about countries, cities, and cultures. 

Children are always filled with curiosity. WorldMapPortal’s game mode offers instant quizzes and fun opportunities to learn!

Risks and challenges

Our team has worked hard to build up our wonderful world map, VR viewer, and mobile application. Through the development of our product, we have strived to minimize the risks for our backers. We have undertaken substantial research and development efforts and have gone through multiple prototypes to reach our current stage.

There are always some risks regarding the manufacturing and delivery processes. But, we are constantly striving to diminish these associated risks in order to overcome any difficulties we may later face, and we are confident that we will be able to overcome any setbacks that arise.

Our app, map, and VR viewer work perfectly and they have been tested in real life many times to verify robustness and accuracy. We have a product that is ready for consumers to use and experience, and we are able to manufacture it at a price that is cost-effective. We are dealing with well explored supply chains, so we are confident that we will ship on time.
