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.

Miss out on backing Pocketbands?
Pocketbands are high-performance silicone wristbands with a pocket for stashing keys, cash and other small items. Originally designed as a place to put your key while going for a run, Pocketbands can be used for a lot more!
Due to popular demand and based on your suggestions, we are proudly presenting Pocketbands 3.0! Our new Pocketbands are made from a flexible, 100% high-performance silicone. The high tensile strength material is durable, water-proof, and feels comfortable on your skin. There's also a new anti-dust coating on the surface of the band that prevents lint and other particles from adhering.
Additionally, we have added an adjustable sports band that enables you to quickly choose from 7 different sizing options. The inside of the strap has also been redesigned and now features a recessed channel allowing for air flow against the wrist. Last, but not least, the newly tapered strap creates a sleek, more sporty look.
Pocketbands hold many types of keys, folded bills, activity trackers like the Fitbit One, Qualcomm Gimbal, bPay Visa/Mastercard, RFID chips, ioProx Keytags, barcode tags, many smart keys and valet keys for cars, usb memory cards, coins, LED inserts and more!
The pocket dimensions are approximately 2 ¼ inches long (5.72cm) x 1 inch wide (25.4mm) x 0.2 inch thick (5mm). In terms of storage, this translates to roughly 2 keys or 2 folded bills or a combination of the two. The pocket can also stretch to accommodate a shape slightly outside of these dimensions. For example, Pocketbands securely hold the Fitbit One which is 9mm thick.
Pocketbands are great for running, biking, swimming, hiking - even walking the dog! No more knotting keys to shoelaces and drawstrings, hiding things in bushes, or stuffing folded bills down in your socks. Pocketbands is the perfect solution to securely hold your items during all sorts of activities and situations.
Pocketbands are available in 7 different colors.Each band comes standard with a chrome-finish metal clasp. The Black Pocketband is also available with an optional matte black metal clasp.
