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.

About

Hello Kickstarter and welcome to the Rohlio project where we are creating the world's first smart toilet tissue spindle nightlight! We are seeking to raise enough funding to turn our product idea from a functional proof-of-concept, into a final consumer-friendly product.

Introduction

Rohlio, LLC. represents a new idea in automatic bathroom night lighting with our first product "Rohlio".  With hundreds of hours of R&D efforts completed, several functional prototypes later, a patent-pending design, Rohlio is now ready to transition into a final prototype and production version.  We've consulted with several contract manufacturers and pre-selected one that is well suited in helping us bring our concept to life. 

This step requires a significant investment to reach productization, including: finish design, mechanical & electrical engineering, embedded systems programming, production tooling, and manufacturing.  Given the amount of time spent on the current functional proof-of-concept, we believe a production ready version can be achieved with only a few iterations, thus reducing risk and time to production.  Once a final prototype has been created, it'll quickly move into final production phase. 

Product Highlights 

Rohlio is a smart bathroom nightlight that is well-integrated into a toilet tissue spindle, and always ready when you are.  Check out the product highlights below to learn more:

  • Rohlio works with most standard toilet tissue holder hardware.
  • Includes integrated movement sensing technology.
  • Energy efficient LED lighting turns on/off automatically.
  • Simply tap your toilet paper for temporary yet effective lighting.
  • Provides short-term bathroom night lighting.
  • Each lighting cycle lasts about 1 minute.
  • Perfect for guys and gals, providing lighting while standing or sitting.
  • Kid friendly for those nightly potty trips.
  • Designed for residential use but great for RV's, Cabin's, Treehouse's, and much more!  Where will you take Rohlio next?

Schedule

In just a few months Rohlio turned from a garage born idea to functional prototype, we've made tremendous progress in Phase 1 so far.

PHASE 1 - COMPLETED
PHASE 1 - COMPLETED
PHASE 2 - PRODUCTION PLANS
PHASE 2 - PRODUCTION PLANS

Following a successful Kickstarter campaign, Rohlio will transition to Phase 2 and complete production based on our project planning guides. 

Summary 

Rohlio makes a perfect companion for any bathroom, providing a gentle yet effective bathroom nightlight that's easy to use.  Designed to work automatically, Rohlio uses builtin movement sensing technology.  Simply tap or move your toilet tissue, and Rohlio will automatically illuminate for about a minute, then return to a standby ready state for the next use.  Need more time?  No problem, just tap or move your toilet tissue again to reactivate or extend the light and timer.

Thank you for checking out my project on Kickstarter, I greatly appreciate your support in helping me bring Rohlio to bathrooms everywhere!

Rohlio is great for any bathroom of any size, it's also a fun gift idea, holiday present, house warming gift, any bathroom can benefit with a little extra lighting.  Once you've used Rohlio in your bathrooms you'll wonder why someone didn't think of it before!  Please help us launch this product by making your pledge today!  Our goal is to be delivering in time for the 2018 Christmas season as this years stocking stuffer to beat!  Finally don't forget to share our project with your friends, family members, and social networks to get the word out.  We couldn't do this without you!!!

Risks and challenges

Rohlio is far more than a standard toilet tissue spindle; it offers an intelligent night lighting solution for your bathroom. Its design integrates sophisticated movement detection circuitry, timers, power management systems, energy efficient lighting, and much more!

Bringing Rohlio from a functional prototype as shown, to a product-ready version, will require a strong capital investment to gain access to the contract manufacturer who can offer the specialized services and tooling needed to complete the development and manufacturing process. I will be working closely with the manufacturer and leading the final design process; these steps include: AutoCAD/Diagram documentation, Printed Circuit Board Assembly (PCBA), System fabrication, prototype iterations, first production run, packaging design, and lastly product shipments.

I’m asking for your help to raise enough funding to complete my project, without it I can’t share the amazing benefits Rohlio can provide. Once you've experienced Rohlio in your own bathroom, you'll quickly see all the benefits of a well-integrated bathroom nightlight!
