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.

You're not crazy. The cling is real.

Millions of innocent bystanders -- people of all shapes and sizes -- dislike being touched by a cold, wet liner.

So I wondered, why not just curve the curtain?

My first Curvi prototype in 2016.

  You don't need to do anything.

Pleating just curves as it hangs on your shower rod.  A neat balancing act; keeps the curtain away from your body. Ta-da, more space!

Keep your rod. No new hardware!

Made in USA

     

Some raw materials might be imported, but over 90% of the economic value is created (and stays) in America. US Patent #8,898,872. Other US & Global Patents Pending. 

Shipping

When you back this project, you’ll see shipping prices for your home country. I am based in the United States, but will be fulfilling orders from the US, Canada and EU.

 

Risks and challenges

My new "pleated window" design is a major improvement and manufacturing simplification. Still, first runs are when all the factory setup happens and new machinery gets tested for the first time. We expect it to all go smoothly -- because shower a curtain with cut/creased plastic isn't "rocket science" -- but nevertheless, glitches could lead to delivery delays. Weather and human error are also risk-factors. But this would only delay this project, not doom it.
