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.
Even if you couldn't see it, we've worked days and nights to be able to get to this special price.
This is an unbeatable price, it's really hard to find something that perfectly organizes your keys at this price. For less than 10$ you are able to organize and silence your keys while giving them a bit of italian style. How good is that? It's just hard to say no!
I have keys, you do too. Everyone does and all of us use them at least two times a day.
They are fine, but they make noise, they are bulky, they have NO style and the ring that holds them is hard to use.
We have found the solution to transform your classic keys in something way more amazing: KEYTCH, the most innovative product on the market that makes your keys more organized and noiseless while giving them elegance and style.
We are a young italian team and we spent a long time designing the perfect product, with a touch of italian design. But to guarantee you an affordable price we have decided to delegate all the production to our suppliers in China, where the costs for production are much lower than in Italy.
Our precision in developing and producing the prototypes has been obsessive because we wanted to make the product exactly as you want it. We didn't get in touch with just one supplier and we decided to cooperate with four different suppliers to have the specifics and the precision that we needed for every part of the product, even if the costs became higher.
The magnets' factory is specialized only on magnets. They have been able to produce them exactly as we wanted in terms of magnetic power, resistance, thickness, shapes and colors.
The adhesives' factory permitted us to use a high quality 3M foam adhesive that sticks very well on any surface and that has very high performance that we couldn't get from other suppliers. This also permits backers to take the magnets off the keys without leaving any residues!
The rings' factory is specialized in key accessories and it gave us the opportunity to find the perfect ring, with the correct measures and with our logo laser engraved.
Also the packaging supplier is specialized only in packages and it gave us the possibility to have our own package, designed by us and that could communicate our message.
Everything has been done with obsessive precision to give you the best experience ever at an affordable price.
We don't think about the packaging as just a container. Instead, we think about it as one of the elements that makes the product different from all the others. That's why we developed an innovative package able to communicate our message, because we all know that the right mix between functionality and style is the key!
So here we are at the final step for mass production to start.
We set a goal of 8.000 euros to be able to put this product in the market and we really need your help to bring this project to life. This amount of pledges is the right balance between the number of products sold and the cost at which they are sold. The money raised thanks to you, in fact, is going to go directly into mass production in order to send the products to all the backers for making Keytch affordable for anyone.
We believe our perks are the perfect combination for the first flow of production. They include early bird perks at a low price for the very first people willing to get their hands on the product, as well as standard and double perks for all people who want to take this opportunity to have a nice gift for them or to give it to family and friends, especially during Christmas time!
Your contribution will have a big impact for everyone around you. It is going to give to all people the possibility to get their hands on this new and innovative product, changing the way people carry their keys around the world.
We have a big mission to accomplish: make your life easier by taking away the everyday problems of your keys.
We have been working on this for months with a team composed by an engineer, young designers and an economist to make keytch the perfect product that, thanks to your support, could have the opportunity to make a big impact.
If you are still reading it's probably because you believe in us, you trust us and our idea is interesting to you.
Last but not least, we are very happy if you could give us your personal contribution. With your contributions we can go to the market, all together. We are sure that everyone should have KEYTCH in their pockets and you can help us to make it happen.
Give style and elegance to your keys, go catch your KEYTCH right now!
Some of you, for some reason or another, just can't contribute, and we respect that.
But we have some good news for you, because there is still some good ways to help us!
For us, it is still very meaningful if you can spread the word by letting all the possible people know about this project. You can do it face to face with your family and friends or you can use the Kickstarter share tools, as well as social media, to put it out on the internet!
We will be very grateful to all the people that took the time to help us by contributing or sharing, we won't forget it. We promise!
Risks and challenges
We have tested all parts of the product, from the magnets and the adhesives to the rings and the packaging. After many trials, we really believe that we couldn't make it better.
While we know that everything until now has been taken in consideration, we also know that anything could happen during mass production and shipping. This is why we are going to give updates regularly to let you know what's happening in real time.
We have to advice our backers that, as many of you may already know, anything could go wrong during these final steps of production and something that we didn't plan could go against us. But don't be afraid! We are going to fight the adversities as we have done until now and we are surely going to get your hands on the product as soon as possible! We have a small, but hard working team ready to give up anything to make this project a reality.
