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.

 What is Inrigo?

Inrigo is a fully waterproof camera-carrying backpack that provides alerts when dangerous levels of moisture are detected.  

Features

Why use it?

Moisture is an unseen killer of camera equipment. Hot or cold weather, rain or rivers, all of them bring risks to expensive camera gear. Inrigo solves this problem by being airtight and alerting you via Bluetooth if unsafe levels of moisture are detected.

How do you use it?

Keeping your camera gear safe is as easy as inserting the Bluetooth moisture monitor and closing Inrigo's airtight zipper. 

Industrial grade material keeps the water out – but if moisture or humidity jump, Inrigo's Bluetooth-connected app will alert you via smartphone. 

How waterproof is it?

Double-sided thermoplastic polyurethane
Double-sided thermoplastic polyurethane

Inrigo uses double-sided TPU, a hybrid between plastic and soft silicon, along with an airtight zipper. The interior is fully insulated from outside humidity. Inrigo meets IP78 waterproof guidelines, meaning it can safely be immersed in one meter of water for 30 minutes. 

Is the quick-open zipper safe?

Airtight zipper
Airtight zipper

Yes. The zipper only opens when given a strong pull from both sides – perfect for photographers that need quick access to their cameras. It is fully waterproof. 

Ergonomic design

Adjustable and padded, the ventilated back fits your body, moving perspiration while letting you wear Inrigo in comfort. The suspension system distributes weight evenly, meaning long hikes won’t result in shoulder pain.

Remotely detect moisture 

Humidity and temperature monitoring
Humidity and temperature monitoring

Inrigo includes a Bluetooth humidity sensor that pairs with your cell phone, alerting you when unsafe levels of humidity are detected. If you leave your backpack behind, you will also be sent a message reminding you you've gone out of range.

The right Inrigo for you

We provide two different packages: the Inrigo LitePak and Inrigo ProPak.

Inrigo LitePak
Inrigo LitePak

The Inrigo LitePak is a fully functioning Inrigo without inner carrying bags. Perfect for those who want to continue using the camera case they are familiar with.

Inrigo ProPak
Inrigo ProPak

The Inrigo ProPak comes with two inner-cases designed to hold two cameras and five lenses. 

Pump it up

Inflate the bag for extra protection
Inflate the bag for extra protection

Inrigo is designed to float and also comes with a valve allowing you to pump air into the backpack, providing an extra level of protection from impact. 

On the road or on the river

Unlike most "waterproof" camera bags on the market that just offer partial protection against water and humidity, Inrigo complies with IP78 waterproofing standards, the same as the Apple Watch.

Goodbye dry box

Serious camera owners have long turned to dry boxes, large, water safe containers kept at home. With Inrigo, your dry box has become mobile and ready to go at a moment's notice.

Risks and challenges

We’re no strangers to Kickstarter projects and the challenges involved. While we recognize unforeseen events may pose a challenge, we have a proven record of delivering on the products we aim to produce, including successful design, production and delivery of the CASE smart camera remote (caseremote.cc).

We already have multiple working samples, but we still need more time and funding to produce Inrigo at scale. Once we hit our goal, manufacturing and delivery should face minimum challenges.

We have confidence in our supply chain, but shipment can at times be tricky – issues can arise with too much demand, delaying delivery. Border customs can also cause issues, possibly resulting in a few-days delay. We will be transparent and provide updates if such issues arise.

We are ready to meet and possibly exceed our schedule.
