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.

These photos and videos provide a detailed look at this project’s development.

 

RokBlok is the world’s smallest wireless record player, that plays your favorite records by lightly riding on top of them. Rock out to your favorite albums anywhere, using its built in speakers, or wirelessly connect your favorite bluetooth speakers or headphones for a bigger sound.

To use, simply place RokBlok on top of a record and pull the lever to start playing your tunes. Hold your hand above the moving record player to stop. That’s it.

Yes, wireless! Within a range of 30 feet, RokBlok can wirelessly send music from your record to any bluetooth speakers or headphones.

RokBlok + Bluetooth = Awesome
RokBlok + Bluetooth = Awesome

 

Want to listen to Dylan in your bedroom? No problem. Wanna share your favorite Gil Scott Heron press with some friends at a park? Go for it. With its tiny profile, you can listen to your favorite records anywhere you can find a flat surface…yes, anywhere.

 

 

 

With its built in Pre-amp, Bluetooth, Speakers and Rechargeable Battery, RokBlok has everything needed to start listening to any record. Just place and play.

 

RokBlok was designed for current vinyl lovers, and those new to records alike. If you love vinyl, have ever been remotely interested in buying a record or two, or would just like the ability to listen to records outside of your living room, RokBlok is for you.

 

 

 

With working prototypes and production specs in hand, we are ready to begin mass production. However in order to reach this milestone we’ll need your help.

 

SheetRok is a record player that is made out of a sheet of paper, uses no electricity….and yes, it actually works! This “manual” record player works by spinning the record yourself. We are offering SheetRok as a fun reward. In addition, we will also include a random record from our personal collection with each SheetRok player. Will you get a Beatles album? Maybe Run DMC? Get your SheetRok and find out!

In the spirit of Kickstarter’s make/100 program, we will be offing a very limited, two-toned edition of RokBlok.

The “100 Edition” will come uniquely numbered and features a Black and Bamboo case. Only 100 will be made.

 

 

 

RokBlok has been the subject of thousands of articles published all over the world! Here are a few of our favorite quotes:

 

Because vinyl records are awesome and the world needs new ways to enjoy them.

 

Pink Donut is a San Francisco based concept company, led by designer Logan Riley. We specialize in developing out of the box ideas. From 3D audio dramas, city sized board games, blinking lights and more. We have a mission to build things as awesome as they are random.

This project is promoted by Jellop, a direct­ response online advertising agency specializing in Kickstarter campaigns on Facebook Ads and Google AdWords.http://jellopcrowdfunding.com/?utm_source=rokblok

Risks and challenges

With our partnership with an amazing manufacturer, that has built products for many successful Kickstarter campaigns, we’re confident in our ability to deliver the most unique vinyl player on the planet, on time. However, there is always the chance of delay. Even though we’ve been tirelessly working on the idea generation, design and prototype for RokBlok, there is always a chance of extensions in manufacturing and shipping dates. We vow to keep backers updated every step of the way.
