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

Growing up in the 90s, floppy disks were an integral part of our childhood... while remembering the good old days we came up with a way to bring the FLOPPY BACK! 

Introducing the FLOPPY MEMORY!

- Made from the same material as the original 3.5" 1.44Mb 2HD IBM Floppy Disks

- Integrated with the latest USB3.0 technology

- Initial designs based 32Gb memory.

- Roll out of 64Gb memory planned after initial release

- Reading speed of 45~90MB/S

- Writing speed of 25~40MB/S

Looks and feels like a real floppy!

#TBT for FLOPPY DISKS

We are well on our way to a successful release of Floppy Memory in October 2017. Get in quick! #Returnofthefloppy

Risks and challenges

Initial risks consisted of finding reliable and consistent suppliers from Asia Pacific able to support our specific manufacturing requirements.

However, After a quick trip to China and Korea, we were able to find a reliable supplier and negotiate long term development of our designs.

- We have working prototypes!

The hard work is done! all we need now is to fix minor bugs and negotiate package requirements and we are on the go to becoming DISTINGUISHED FLOPPY MASTERS!
