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.

How great would it be to affect your vocals with a simple flick of the wrist? That’s why we introduce the Wiggle Kit: a new musical instrument that transforms expressive hand movements into expressive sounds effects.

By twisting your hand in different directions, you simply add sound effects to your voice. In the App that comes with the Wiggle Kit, you pick and change different effects, ranging from simple reverbs and delays to the most complex auto-tune and vocoder effects, all controlled from within the palm of your hand.

 

Here’s a small selection of artists who are already using the Wiggle Kit in their performance and singers who get to use it for the first time:

The core of the Wiggle Kit is the Wiggle device itself. Small in size, but packed with the latest technology, it translates your hand movements into vocal effects. All without any noticeable latency. Up to three different effects can be controlled at the same time by moving the Wiggle from left to right, raising it from low to high or twisting the Wiggle around your wrist.

 

Connect.

Simply connect the Wiggle Device to the App by holding it close to your phone or tablet. It will automatically connect via Bluetooth and be ready to use! 

Hold the Wiggle next to your phone or tablet and it will connect automatically!

After many iterations and years of testing, we’re now fully prepared to launch the Wiggle Kit on Kickstarter. But whereas other Kickstarter campaigns usually take 6 - 8 months to fulfill all orders, we are planning on shipping the first 300 Wiggle Kits before Christmas 2017. Be prepared to send us your full details right after the campaign ends, because we’re moving faaaaaast!

"So, how long until I can get my Wiggle Kit?" we hear you ask. Well, this is how it's going down:

 

We call ourself the Omnipresent World of Wizkids (OWOW for short). Based in the leading innovative technology region in Europe, Eindhoven, our team consists out of music and gear freaks, all with a strong vision towards the future of music production.

You might know us from our previous Kickstarter campaign two years ago. This project got successfully funded and we shipped to all our happy 600 backers in the summer of 2016.

 

Two years ago we did our first Kickstarter campaign to fund four new MIDI instruments. This series was called the MIDIS and included the first model of the Wiggle. We successfully raised 51K to bring the MIDIS to production and shipped all rewards to more than 600 happy backers worldwide.

Although we got great feedback from users and internally known artists from all over the world, we decided to improve the MIDIS 1.0 by modifying the design, redesign the PCB and adding a Bluetooth chip to make them wireless, and more.

In May, earlier this year, we launched the MIDIS 2.0. We noticed that singers who used the Wiggle in their performances, struggled with the complex software needed to make it work. The issue was that many had never worked with music software and depended on their producer (or the front of house). That’s where the idea of the Wiggle App came along: To give singers a simple and easy to use tool to use vocal effects, either on stage, at the studio or at home.

However, we did not have the means to developed the Wiggle App at that time. That’s why we decided to bring the Wiggle Kit to Kickstarter: to raise funds for the development of the Wiggle App. We here by thank each and every one of our backers, artists involved and the whole team which made this possible. Thank you!

As you might know, the success of Kickstarter campaigns mostly depends on how many people get to see it. Because we’re still young company, budget is tight when it comes to marketing.

If you like this project and want to support us but aren't ready to buy a Wiggle Kit, you can help us out by sharing this campaign with one of your friends. Many thanks!

Risks and challenges

Kickstarter isn't easy! Although we fulfilled our MIDIS 1.0 project to over 600 happy backers and have produced and shipped over 1.000 products worldwide, we can still make mistakes, so as with all of our new product launches.

We are committed to keeping our campaign as transparent as possible and we will openly communicate with our supporters on the progress we make and the issues that might arise.
