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 Myriad Case – the World's Most Versatile iPhone Battery Case. 

Whether you're constantly on the go, studying for that big test, or just relaxing with friends and family, Myriad Case is a versatile wireless iPhone battery case that's essential to your day-to-day lifestyle. It's the last iPhone case you'll ever need. 

Myriad Case is a smartphone battery case that uses revolutionary patent-pending wireless charging tech to charge your iPhone completely wirelessly.

  • Patent-Pending Dual Wireless Charging allows Myriad Case to charge your iPhone, and itself, completely wirelessly. No fumbling for wires, no extra cables, no nonsense. 
  • Completely Wireless Charging leaves your charging port open for music, data transfer, and much more; this means that you can finally charge and listen to music at the same time.
  • Easily Detachable Battery Pack that can be removed, attached, swapped out, or shared. You can borrow friends' battery modules, or lend them out, and swap your dead pack out for a charged pack.   
  • Compact, Versatile Design removes the ugly, bulky "chin" where every other battery case plugs in. Myriad Case leaves your charging port open, and has a much more streamlined, compact design.

Imagine this: you're at a concert with your friends. Everyone's having a lot of fun, but you lose your friends in the crowd. You take your phone out to text them, and – uh oh – it's dead. Don't have your phone die while you're lost at a concert. Introducing Myriad Case.

Myriad Power is the cutting edge battery portion of Myriad Case. It utilizes our own patent pending wireless charging technology to charge your iPhone completely wirelessly; it doesn't even plug into the Lightning Port, reducing the bulkiness of your iPhone and allowing you to charge and listen to music.

Totally Wireless

Picture this: it’s been a long day, you’re winding down for the evening, and your iPhone is almost dead. It's time to plug it in for the night – after you fumble around your nightstand, looking for the right cable. 

Quit cluttering up your valuable space with messy, ugly cables when you can wirelessly charge Myriad Case and your iPhone at the same time!

Not only does Myriad Power free up the Lightning Port on your phone, but it also frees up your desk, nightstand, and countertops. You can even stack modules on top of each other and charge them simultaneously with the included Qi wireless charging pad.

Small Form Factor

Your iPhone was designed to be sleek, light, and thin, so why would you want to put a thick, heavy, bulky battery case on it? 

Myriad Power is among the world's most compact battery cases for the iPhone X family. It currently weighs just 120 grams and sits at 19.3mm thin

Since Myriad Power doesn't plug in, there's no bulky chin at the bottom, unlike every other battery case currently on the market. Your charging port and speakers are free and open, the way they should be.

Shareable & Swappable

In a modern world where smartphones are critical in almost every aspect of our day-to-day lives, more power is an absolute necessity. Myriad Power can charge any wireless charging enabled smartphone, including every iPhone from 2017 and up. 

Got friends with a dead iPhone? Be the life of the party and lend them a battery module!

Myriad Power easily detaches from its bumper, allowing you to share power from your modules with your friends or family. It can act as a "double-sided" wireless charging power bank and charge any smartphone with wireless charging. 

Since Myriad Case is modular, you can buy multiple battery modules and swap them out as needed for as much power as you need. If you don’t need power at all, detach the battery module to free up the beautiful glass back of your iPhone.

Myriad Case's bumper is created from an inner layer of shock-resistant silicone to ensure your iPhone is cushioned from accidental drops, and an outer layer of hard, protective plastic, finished in matte with glossy chamfered edges for maximum grip and feel. 

By backing our Kickstarter campaign, you’re helping us bring the Myriad Case to market. More specifically, you’re helping us pay for tooling, packaging, support materials, production fees, and everything else needed to make Myriad Case a reality, and in a larger sense, radically disrupt the battery case market.

 

About Us

In September 2017, Apple announced the iPhone X – which included wireless charging. Nearly two months later, Myriad was founded by Jake Steelman and Alex Nguyen, two tech enthusiasts with a passion to innovate in the field of wireless technology. Our mission is to revolutionize the power and connectivity sector by developing, testing, and refining new wireless technologies, from charging to data transfer. We believe that the future lies in wireless technology, or rather, we believe that wireless technology is the future, and the Myriad Case is one of the many innovations that help us achieve our mission.

Risks and challenges

Technical Risks & Challenges:
Our mission at Myriad is to make the world totally wireless, and this comes with a few technical risks: Myriad Modularity Switches are the first of their kind, and they'll need to be consistently tested for durability, strength, longevity, and ability to work in harsh circumstances. Myriad Power's patent-pending bi-directional wireless charging technology is also the first of its kind, and it comes with several challenges on its own, including efficiency, consistency, and reliability. Myriad Case's specifications are subject to change. Current specification numbers are based off of our current prototype, which does not have as much capacity as the final production version. We estimate final power numbers to be between 1750mAh and 2500mAh for iPhone XS/X versions of Myriad Power. Weight number will also increase due to larger battery. Myriad's contract engineers and designers have been continually building, testing, and refining prototypes since February 2018, and will continue to test them relentlessly in order to make a more efficient, seamless, and powerful charging experience for you. It is our highest priority to maintain transparency and provide updates on our progress with testing these prototypes, as you are a valued backer of our campaign.

Product & Kickstarter Updates
Myriad Case's minor details are subject to change throughout the development and manufacturing process – we will do our best to update each and every one of our backers in order to maintain transparency and deliver the best version of Myriad Case possible.

Shipment & Delivery:
We expect to manufacture and begin delivery by June 2019 for iPhone XS/X, and August 2019 for iPhone XR/XS Max, based on an aggressive timeline accounting for minor to moderate setbacks. Please remember there may be setbacks that we failed to account for that could set delivery back, and that we will do all we can to keep you constantly updated on the status of manufacturing and deliveries and maintain crystal clear transparency. By backing the project, you acknowledge and understand the risks outlined in the above paragraphs.
