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.

CA-TONとは / What's CA-TON

"CA-TON"は 、"究極なシンプルさ"を追求したプロダクトです。

"CA-TON" is a product pursuing "ultimate simplicity".

CA-TONは段ボールなど紙製のものに比べ湿気に強く、厚さはわずか0.7ミリの樹脂製です。特殊な構造(特許出願中)により軽量でありながら落下、衝突などによる耐衝撃性にも優れています。折りたたまれた状態から工具を使わず組み立てが可能で、未使用時にはフラットな状態で収納できます。本体とフタは一体構造のため、フタをなくしたり置き忘れることもありません。

CA-TON is more resistant to humidity than cardboard and other paper products, and is made of resin with a thickness of just 0.7 mm. It is not only lightweight by a special structure (patent pending) but it is also excellent in impact resistance due to falling, collision and so on. It is designed to assemble from the folded state without using a tool, and it can be stored in a flat state when not in use. Since the main body and the lid are in a single whole piece, there is no possibility of losing or forgetting the lid.

機能美・シンプルさ / Function beauty · Simplicity

CA-TONはどんな環境にも合うようにデザインに徹底的にこだわりました。

CA-TON is sticked thoroughly to the design to suit any environment.

全体の雰囲気はもちろん細部(切り出し部分)までジャパンクオリテイを追求しています。

We pursue Japan quality until the details (cut out part) of the whole atmosphere as well as course.

機能美も追求

It’s pursued “Made in Japan” quality from the whole atmosphere down to the cut-out-part details.

底面にツメがついていることからCA-TON同士をキレイに重ねることができ、安定します。

シンプルな使用環境を実現するアプリ

An application that realizes a simple usage environment


収納物を探すとき箱を開けて中を確認しますね。 見つからなくて全ての箱を開けた、なんてよくある話しです。 CA-TONにはフタを閉じたままスマホで中身が見えるタグとアプリが付いています。 タグにお好きな文字やイラストを書きスマホをかざせば、予め登録した中身の画像を まるで透けているかのように見ることができます。

Normally you open the box and check inside as you search for stored items. You may have experienced that you open all the boxes and yet you don’t find one you are looking for. CA-TON comes with a tag and an app that allows you to see the contents in the box with the lid closed, using your smartphone. Write some words or illustrations that tell you what’s in your CA-TON on the tag, you can see the image of the contents you registered in advance as though it were transparent as long as you keep on smartphone.
