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.
Wall plug-in night lights really have not changed over the years. We are going to change that.
MyLite allows people to move around in the dark without disturbing others. It is the perfect travel companion. Whether you're at home, camping or staying in an unfamiliar hotel room or home while traveling.
It’s as simple as a push of a button!
Once people have used MyLite, they find more and more ways that a little light helps them every night.
MyLite™ helps you sleep more. That’s good because sleep can…
Lower your stress - "Sleep can definitely reduce levels of stress, and with that people can have better control of their blood pressure," Dr. Jean says. "It’s also believed that sleep effects cholesterol levels, which plays a significant role in heart disease."
Sharpen your attention - A lack of sleep can result in ADHD-like symptoms in kids, Dr. Rapoport says.
"Kids don’t react the same way to sleep deprivation as adults do," he adds. "Whereas adults get sleepy, kids tend to get hyperactive."
Spur your creativity - Researchers at Harvard University and Boston College found that people seem to strengthen the emotional components of a memory during sleep, which may help spur the creative process.

Night time light exposure can decrease sleep quality and shorten the duration of sleep, leading to further problems.
A Swiss study that tracked kids from birth reports that over 30% of children between 2 and 7 experienced at least one disruptive night awakening each week. Among 10-year-olds, the rate remained high--almost 23% (Jenni et al 2005).

MyLite is available in two colors, black and white. It is offered in an adult (small + large) and Junior size.
The Large size fits wrist sizes 6 inches round or over. The Small and Junior fit wrists under 6 inches around.
MyLite Versus The Cell Phone
The MyLITE Story
It all started 2 years ago with my granddaughter. She was scared at night. She didn't feel comfortable with the dark and night lights were not helping they were actually keeping her up. I wanted to find a way that I could help her and I knew that lots of other children and their parents were struggling with night time issues as well.
So I had this idea come to me. Why not make a hands free light she can wear on her wrist that she could control and would turn off automatically after she fell asleep?
I shared my vision with industry experts and together we designed and created MyLite™ right here in North America. After the public tested our prototypes more than just children started to use them. Adults of all ages began to use MyLite™. Turns out we all can use a little hands-free light that doesn't distract us or worse signal the brain that it's time to wake up. Older adults who each night are frequently going to the bathroom loved MyLite™. Parents who need to check on the children at night, feeding or changing a baby loved MyLite™. So many more night time uses were shared with us. We knew that MyLite™ would help families everywhere. The need for light is universal. We look forward to making nighttime safer and happier for everyone.
