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.
Magno Ink is a blend of our very best thinking and our very best innovation.
We have taken inspiration from an extremely successful product that we launched last year, Magno 'The Worlds First Magnetically Controlled Pencil' (raised over £80,000 on Kickstarter).
We are the very first company in the world to use magnets in order to control the activation of a writing instrument. It makes us extremely proud to be the pioneers of this revolutionary technology.
We want to make Magno-Ink 'affordable luxury' for everyone. Having people enjoy our products is more important than making profit. We recognise that this attitude is essential to grow our business.
Selling through Kickstarter means that we do not have to involve distributors and we thought.....
Lets give you the saving!
Buying direct from us means you save up to 67% from our RRP which puts a smile on both of our faces :)

Firstly, we would like to thank the Kickstarter community for enabling us to create our second product at HRIBARCAIN; MAGNO-INK. After launching 'Magno-The Worlds first Magnetically Controlled Pencil' last year, we managed to raise over £80,000 on Kickstarter. We thoroughly enjoyed every step of getting our amazing products into your hands!
Since our last campaign we bought our very own design studio. We are now set up to continue designing products for years to come :)
Thank you so much for taking the time to read through our campaign. We hope you share even half the passion we have for MAGNO-INK!
We are both Design Engineers who have worked in the manufacturing industry for a number of years. As Designers, we have a strong passion to innovate products where design has become stale and unchanged latterly in their existence. What better product than a pen?
All design work and machining prototypes have been done by ourselves. We also have a very good relationship with our manufacturers and talk on a daily basis. This is essential to ensure we can easily monitor production and ensure the very best quality.
We feel so proud to finally offer this product to the Kickstarter community and sincerely hope you are able to help make our dream a reality.
Thank you for your time.

Risks and challenges
Firstly, we would be committed to excellent communication throughout the whole campaign, as we understand the importance of keeping our backers up to date on all developments (no matter how big or small).
Our focus has been to de-risk the campaign and overcome any potential concerns for our backers. These steps have involved; funding all the development costs, sourcing manufacturing partners with several rounds of samples and strategically planning the process post campaign.
The final way in which we’ve eliminated risk on this project is believing that we will deliver nothing less than the exceptional product we've promised! We have an unbelievable amount of belief in the concept and want to invite you on the journey of helping us to make Magno a reality.
