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.

Northern Pails proudly presents:

The Crown: Certified Eco-friendly Royal Bluetooth Speaker offering 360 degrees of Powerful High Definition sound and RGB sound reactive lights with different light modes.


What makes The Crown different from all other speakers?

The Crown* has been given a patent because it creates sound unlike any other speaker. The white holes on the side of the speaker generate the mid and high sounds, whereas the base of the speaker generates the bass. 

*Patented and tested, IPR -protected worldwide. Ready for production.

Also you can keep your belongings safe inside The Crown and easily carry them wherever you go with the perfect and powerful 360 sound!

HIGH QUALITY SPEAKER WITH A TWIST

The Crown not only sounds exceptional, it has rather exceptional design, too and many connection possibilities.

The Crown's pail-like shape is its most innovative quality: not only does it guarantee a unique 360 degrees audio experience, it also turns the inside of the speaker even into an ice bucket or an stuff holder!

What's more, you can keep all your belongings in one place without getting sand all over them. Just throw your keys, mobile phones and clothes in. Don't worry, the sound quality won't suffer!

The Crown is made for fun evenings out. It's easy to carry, and its battery will last 10 hours so you can listen to music and keep your drinks cold all night long. You can connect your phone to The Crown through a Bluetooth connection or AUX jack and even charge it by plugging it in.

RGB Sound Reactive Lights

You can create your preferred mood for any occasion with the RGB sound reactive lights.

Motion sensor

Have you ever lost your belongings in the night time? If The Crown is nearby, you'll find your belongings much easier!

The Crown has been fitted with a motion sensor. When you lift The Crown, a bright LED light starts to glow, lighting the area beneath it, so you can find your way even in the dark.

USB power output

Never run out of battery on your mobile device when The Crown is around. Charges any device with a USB plug. You can also connect your device via auxiliary port (AUX), USB -port, U-disk and listen your favorite songs!

THE STORY BEHIND THE CROWN

 

 On the right, you can see Jarno Voutilainen. Jarno is a typical Finnish man: he likes saunas and building things with his own hands. Therefore Jarno was pleased when he got to renovate his sauna two years ago. He was pleased with the result yet felt like something was missing as he wanted it to be extraordinary. The first version of The Crown was a very basic DIY, dimly lit sauna pail. 

Jarno and Jari-Matti have always been interested in developing new products, and as Jarno has studied engineering so he understood the possibilities of The Crown. Still, the speaker turned out better than he ever expected. Jarno: "Even sound engineers have been surprised by the quality of sound"

Jarno and Jari-Matti not only developed the product to where it is now, but got the product tested and patented, and negotiated a good deal with a factory specialized in similar products. Now they just need your help to get enough pre-orders to start the production. (Writer: Salla Hanninen).

WE ARE READY TO START PRODUCTION

The Crown is ready for production, patented and tested. The funding from this campaign will be used to fulfill the minimum order required by the factory.

The Crown is in the final stage for manufacturing and we will soon begin our production. Our team is working with our manufacturing and shipping partners.

Through our upcoming process we will be:

1. Signing contracts

2. Finalizing The Crown for production

3. Performing our final product safety testing and quality control

4. Starting production

5. Shipping

Please note! If a buyer does not pay for the VAT and shipping fees (if applicable) at the end of the campaign, Northern Pails is not obligated to send the rewards or return their money. 

Risks and challenges

The process has now lasted for 18 months and we are happy to announce that WE ARE READY TO START PRODUCTION.

Kickstarter and all you awesome backers can help us start the production, and we are ready to get started as soon the campaign ends. All the testing has been completed - we can now say for sure the Crown is safe to use. We directly control the manufacturing process on a daily basis with the factory. We promise to keep our backers updated about any issues that may occur. After the Kickstarter campaign we'll be able to ship you this awesome product. We have learned that some other campaigns have run into problems with large volumes as they have not anticipated different shipping costs to different locations. To avoid this risk (and make sure everyone gets their rewards in time) we will charge for the shipping according to the list price at the end of the campaign. The higher the volumes the lower the prices may be, so make sure to share this with your friends! Currently our only challenge has to do with getting the word out. So help us spread the word and get the Crown the attention it deserves!
