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.

About

Introducing America’s newest and most innovative patent pending outdoor portable 3 in 1 grill. This collapsible decorative masterpiece is a barbecue grill that easily changes into a hibachi grill vis-a-vis Benihana and can be used as a deep fryer boiler all in one. Not only is it a functional outdoor appliance but also a stunning decorative addition to anyone’s finest outdoor furniture collection that can also be used at tail gate parties.

Entertain your friends and family with your cooking prowess by having a front row seat as the Master Chef of your own food show. Outdoor grilling is no longer an exercise in solitude but a whole new adventure that allows you to be the star of your very own culinary show. You are now limited only by your imagination as your audience watch you perform unique gastronomic delights that will taste as good as it looks and smells, all while being fully engaged and entertained.

Breakfast, lunch, dinner or just a simple quick snack is now a unique experience for everyone to enjoy. My Hibachi BBQ is the latest and most innovative outdoor cooking appliance in the market today. You can easily fold into a compact size to take to tailgating events and much more. The unit is manufactured with commercial grade top quality materials and comes with 3 stainless steel grilling accessories, 4 foldable chairs (seats up to 6) and a heavy duty weather proof cover.

The commercial grade 304 stainless steel grilling plate offers 533 inches (19.75x27) of cooking area allowing you to prepare breakfast by frying eggs, bacon, sausages, make pancakes and a lot more…. Grill some hamburgers, hot dogs, shrimp, steaks, tuna and more or just replace the grilling plate with the barbecue plate and cook up a traditional barbecue of chicken, burgers, ribs, hot dogs or some shish-kabob, lobster or shrimp. Better yet, change the barbecue plate to the fryer/boiler plate and have yourself a craw fish, fish fry or lobster party. All with one grill as your family and friends sit around and enjoy your shrimp catching skills as you put on a show.

We are raising funds to advertise and market this revolutionary product to the rest of the world, join us on this groundbreaking journey.

Risks and challenges

We are operational and have our first production of 160 units ready to go. The risk are minimal and subject to market acceptability. All design and production cost have been made by the principals. We feel our leadership team is preeminent renowned in the market place.

Our founder and CEO Carlos Cabrera In 1996 leveraged assistance from NASA through its Space Alliance Technology Outreach Program created to assist small businesses with engineering challenges.
Our VP of Sales Dr. Mack Chapman D.B.A. brings over 30 years of fortune 500 experience leadership experience from his days a Lehman Brothers, Bache Halsey Stuart and Shields and the numerous number of successful start ups such as WIU, UOPX and AWC.

Elizabeth Sacchetti MBA is our COO she is internationally recognized leader in organizational development and has worked with organizations in the Middle East, Northern Africa, The Caribbean, South and Central America

Potential challenges: 1) Cost of raw materials rising that would force us to increase prices. 2) Competing with high-end BBQ grills 3) Economic down turn such as a recession.

Potential solutions: 1) Purchase futures contract to hedge ourselves against rising commodities we use in the manufacturing process. 2) Attend and market at BBQ and Outdoor trade shows and leverage our contacts from the tank-less water-heaters to sell to major retailers. 3) We are a niche market that will have a clientele that will be less prone to minor economic down turns.

Demand for outdoor grills and grilling accessories will increase by 3.5% on a year by year basis. Why is this the case? For one, the furnishing industry correlates strongly with the housing market. A positive trend in the housing market will lead to more homeowners purchasing outdoor décor to furnish new and remodeled homes.

Another reason for increased demand is the cost-comparison between outdoor kitchens and high-end grills. Many consumers have found fully-functional outdoor kitchens to be out of their price range and in turn, have opted for high tech grills. This allows for a compromise that facilitates outdoor dining occasions without overspending. As you may know, added home value is contingent upon property values in the surrounding community. In some cases, an outdoor kitchen may make sense from a financial standpoint.

Homeowners are not just buying outdoor grills, they are buying multiple models. Residential consumers desire multiple preparation techniques including frying and smoking. Along with options, residential consumers are creating demand for small portable grills that offer flexibility. These portable grills can be easily transporting during outings, tailgating parties, and camping.
