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.
Dancebot is a smart dancing audio companion. It is a groovy robot that jives to the audio played through its speakers.
Its intelligent algorithm allows it to process any audio passed through it and translate that into expressive movements. Dancebot likes to impress with its two little feet. It taps its feet and jives to upbeat tunes. It slides in silky sleek movements to bring out the sexy in slow pieces.
Don't just stop at music. It is an audio companion. Feed Dancebot with any audio and it'll do its best to impress you.
Play an audiobook or nursery rhymes with Dancebot. It likes to move to the stories and songs. Dancebot’s animated movements will give your child an engaging session that makes learning a lot more fun.
What’s the secret behind Dancebot’s deft footwork? Dancebot has two motors in each leg. Each motor drives 360 degrees of rotation at each joint, allowing the Dancebot to express a full range of movements with the four joints.
Dancebot has an intelligent algorithm that determines the most appropriate dance move for the music that is being played. It moves to the rhythm and tempo of music in its adorable expression of the songs. It taps its feet and jives to upbeat tunes. It slides in silky sleek movements to bring out the sexy in slow pieces.
Our engineers have been creating and teaching Dancebot a whole set of moves possible with a combination of motion of the four joints. The algorithm then strings the movements together on the fly to make a delightful performance. This means that each time Dancebot dances to the same song, it will surprise you with a different routine.
For just $20, you can add a custom startup message for your Dancebot. Surprise your loved ones with a personalised startup message.
**For a limited time only, we will be offering startup message customization at a special price of $12 during this Kickstarter period!**
Say “Happy Birthday” or “Happy Anniversary” with your custom startup message and Dancebot will help you to express your love and well wishes each time it is turned on.
Make your pledge under the option that comes with a custom startup message. When the campaign is successful, we will send you an email asking for the message audio file.
Ensure that the message is an MP3 file under 6 seconds long, and make sure it is loud and clear for the best effect.
We are a one-stop service company that provides award-winning product design, product development, manufacturing, marketing, logistics and shipping services.
We believe in bringing the most innovative and creative products to consumers at the most affordable prices without compromising on quality and service.
1. Can we get Dancebot in another colors?
We currently offer Dancebot in red only. More colors might be available if we are successfully funded but no promises right now.
2. I pledged for a Dancebot with custom startup message. How do I get my custom message set up?
After the campaign ends, if the project is fully funded, we will send you an email asking for the sound file.
3. What are the requirements for the custom startup sound file?
Keep the sound file under 10 seconds long, and make sure it is loud and clear for the best effect. Record in a quiet environment with a decent microphone so that the quality is acceptable. If you know how to edit the sound files, you can tweak the audio to remove background noise and to improve the sound quality.
4. Can you edit or optimize the sound file for me?
Depending on the number of orders, we might be able to optimize individual sound files. However, if the demand is overwhelming, we would be unable to go through the found files one by one.
5. Do I have to pay VAT and custom duties?
We try our best to avoid VAT and custom duties. However, due to ever-changing policies that varies between countries, we cannot promise that you won’t have to make such extra payment. What we can guarantee is free worldwide shipping.
6. What is your return policy?
Our high quality production and stringent QC means that every Dancebot we sell meets our high level of standards. However, in the improbable circumstance that you are unsatisfied with the product, we will accept all returns with a full refund.
Risks and challenges
No Kickstarter project is without risk. But we are very well equipped to deliver this project quickly and effectively. As an experienced manufacturer, we are more than capable of handling the tooling, production and assembly processes. We are well past the prototype phase and we have our golden sample ready for mass production, unlike many Kickstarter projects that are at the conception or prototyping stages, meaning there is less margin for error. Our expertise in logistics and shipping makes us confident in the fulfilment of the product. Our wealth of experience gives us confidence in our execution of this campaign.
Having gone through several prototypes to fine tuned the Dancebot, we finally have the golden sample. All the components for Dancebot are ready to be manufactured. We just need your support to bring this product to life.
We are excited to bring this project past the finishing line into your hands!
