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.

I'm a busy working mom - aren't we all? - and I find there's never enough time to knit. And when there is, I wish I didn't have to stop and hunt for notions, or gather what I need so I can relocate to watch the kids wherever they are currently playing, or pack them up, or lose them! Whether you've just gotten comfy on the couch and you realize you need stitch markers, or you are riding in the car and need to measure your work, or are trapped on a plane seat and can't reach your notions stowed away, or have them but don't want them to slip off your lap, the solution is a stylish precision wearable!

This is TINK! All the notions you need in a travel safe, stylish, everyday wear - wearable!

 

 

 

Developing TINK took over a year of extensive research, 3D modeling and testing. There is nothing like this in existence. Patent Pending!

 

Each segment is precision machined aluminum. The bracelet segments total 6" or 15cm and with an adjustable chain to accommodate up to 9". Weighing in at 2.5oz or 70g you'll be surprised at how comfortable it is. 

Use it to measure your gauge:

Use it for needle gauges from 0-16 and a travel safe, TSA-proof yarn cutter that won't snag your hand knits:

Use the F/5/3.75mm crochet hook as a stitch saver or to bind off, and tapestry needle to weave in ends, both will be stainless steel and held in place with magnets:

Use the row counter and with places for 15 stitch markers, never need to frog or tink again:

 

 

 

   

 

 

 

     

 

Risks and challenges

There are 6 segments made up of 10 pieces that need to be precision CNC machined. There are also magnets, pins, springs, ball bearings and screws that will be meticulously assembled. The blade, crochet hook and tapestry needle are custom pieces that will have a separate production process. If the demand is high, there could be a ripple effect in the production timeline. Updates will be made weekly and any potential delays will be communicated promptly!
