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

Meet Scribe. Motion Sensing in a Mighty Little Package.

The Story Behind Scribe

Scribe for Makers was created by Scribe Labs – a company founded by a team with experience bringing new technologies to consumer markets for companies like Activision and Red Octane. Scribe Labs launched its first product – RunScribe – as a successful Kickstarter that shipped in 2015. Today, RunScribe is used to provide real-world gait analysis for athletes, coaches and clinicians.

We have received endless requests to open up access to our hardware for different applications – from fitness to equestrian sports to head tracking for VR and gaming. As a small team trying to get our first product off the ground, we helped where we could. Scribe was used for academic studies and research projects, but we quickly realized that our fellow creators needed a quality integrated motion sensor. We worked with our manufacturer to beef up the specs and created the APIs & tools to let you take advantage of the hardware we've spent years developing.

Fully Loaded

Scribe for Makers integrates the latest tech in a single package:

  • Bluetooth® MCU
  • 9-Axis MPU (3-Axis Gyro, 3-Axis Accelerometer, 3-Axis Magnetometer)
  • Miniature altimeter module with high resolution pressure & temperature sensing

When you're working with stable hardware, its easy to design & commercialize your ideas.

  • Scribe for Makers is consumer grade, robust and water resistant – so it can be used for real-world applications
  • Eliminates design cycles and resources on hardware development, testing and manufacturing
  • Whether you need 2 hardware pods or 10,000 – the design and hardware production work is done and available for purchase through ScribeLabs

Production Grade + Design Kit

Rapid Design & Testing

Reliable and robust, Scribe for Makers lets designers focus on applications instead of hardware. It’s flexible -- and can be mounted by clips, straps, adhesive or on a wrist band. It gives you oodles of data – its configurable to stream, log or store data. And it comes with the tools you need to get started.

Production

Manufacturing hardware is painful. We know – it took us over 3 years from our first prototype to design, test & manufacture Scribe. Scribe for Makers is in production as a shoe-based wearable used by athletes racing through creeks, mud and dirt. When you design with Scribe for Makers, you know you’re working with proven hardware. If you decide to bring your idea to market, you can purchase hardware from Scribe Labs to package and sell yourself.

Go Forth & Measure

Scribe for Makers is lightweight & robust, and comes with mount options for straps, adhesive, clips and a wrist band - so you can measure and build applications for pretty much anything. Here's a few ideas!

Risks and challenges

By leveraging the work that we've done in the development and production of RunScribe, we've been able to dramatically shorten the classic Kickstarter timeline. We've completed the design and testing of the first batch of production prototypes and are ready to go into production.

That said, this is Kickstarter, and there are risks and challenges with bringing any technology product to market, including: issues with sourcing components, production and delivery issues, challenges with international sales and delivery, and unforeseen issues that delay our schedules. We promise to do our best to stay on top of everything, and communicate with you all when anything comes up, but it’s a good idea to understand Kickstarter programs come with risk.
