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 leather is soft as butter and the workmanship is amazing for it's price. I've been a customer for the past couple of years and they have never failed to impress me.

I saw the sorting mechanism and I'm impressed how simple yet intricacy of it. It is obvious loads of work have been invested in this idea. Well done!

Globetrotter is a travel wizard! I need to travel across Asia for work and it have indeed helped to organize my travel documents and different currencies.
Kelvin Tan, Sales Executive -
I'm a coin collector and I'm amazed at how Paperboy sorts the different denominations pretty accurately. It have found a home in my car to store my loose change!
Patrick Oakley, Photographer -
Numistar is extremely functional! I liked how they added the SIM, Memory card slot, which comes in handy in my line of work. The spare key slot was a lifesaver for someone as absent-minded as me!
We aim to deliver in batches and our backers should receive Numistar in May 2017.
WHY DO WE NEED YOUR HELP?
We're almost done with our prototypes, but moving to the production phase requires significant capital and scale.
We need your help to finance the required materials and meet minimum order quantities. The more backers we get, the more value we are able to pass to our supporters in terms of stretch goals and material quality.
We've spent many months working out the details of this project, and are very excited about finally having the opportunity to bring Numistar to you.
Hi! I'm Eden & we started a small leather and fabric workshop in Singapore called "February 29" since 2006.
Our first Kickstarter campaign was funded in October 2016 and our production was right on schedule.
With the valuable experience gained, we’re prepared to exceed your expectations this second time around.
We have been working with professional, organized factories that has decades of experience. However, there's always a risk that suppliers do not fulfill orders on time or the usual shipping rush for the New year season. We choose the best options we have at this moment. We've added buffers to the lead times just in case of Murphy's law.
Duty/VAT charges: “In this world, nothing can be said to be certain except Death and Taxes” - Benjamin Franklin. Do check with your local customs & tax office.
Customs: Numistar looks awesome under the XRAY and you know how customs officers love awesome stuffs. Do allow more time if you know your countries' custom officers are working overtime on checks.
Acts of God: We are based in Singapore, a tiny red dot on the world map surrounded by seas and guess what? The island we are on is even smaller than New York City.
This means that we have pirates buccaneering off our coasts, heavy monsoons hitting our island every 3 days.
Whatever happens, we'll get Numistar to you. We promise.
We are first and foremost committed to our relationship with our backers, the ones that have been with us from the very beginning and those we’re excited to have join us in our next product evolution. We promise to keep our family of backers updated with our progress throughout the entire campaign.
If there are any bumps along the way, we'll let you know!
