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.
We’re excited to introduce you to the Wasp 100-C; the new 100-Watt LED light from Academy Award® nominated Hive Lighting.
Our Wasp 100-C represents the next generation of lighting for all levels of production—from professional gaffers on Hollywood feature films to aspiring indie filmmakers, from video bloggers to fashion photographers. The Wasp 100-C brings quality and control from the highest levels of professional lighting to everyone.
What makes our Wasp 100-C stand out from the crowd? We’ve combined brilliant and energy-efficient LED lights with our Perfect S.H.O.T. system. It is a simple product built around you, made for real production scenarios. Our totally unique fixture, its infinite accessories, and its smart controls will forever change the way you experience lighting.
With our Wasp 100-C, you can:
Play with color. Full hue and saturation controls give you the ultimate ability to create an immersive lighting experience with infinite color combinations.
Leverage white light controls. Thanks to our white light controls, you can easily adjust lighting from warm candle light to cool daylight to support productions in any location or at any time of day.
Accessorize. Our light has a 180 degree spread and is compatible with the accessories to shape light any way you want. Use light modifying accessories to customize your lighting for different on screen talent, subjects and locations. Create a theatrical spot light or a soft beauty light, a lantern light or a powerful flood—the only limit is your imagination.
Be in control. Control the saturation, hue and color of the light through professional DMX boards, a simple interface on the light itself or via your smartphone app. It’s that easy!
Not only is our Wasp 100-C an environmentally-friendly lighting product, but it is also a practical and affordable solution offering the highest color quality and highest output LED for all levels of production. Designed and manufactured in Los Angeles by Hive Lighting, the engineering and prototyping on the Wasp 100-C is already complete but we need your support to help us complete manufacturing the first run of these groundbreaking LED lights.
