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

What is SOFTouch?  

SOFTouch is the first super soft screen protector in the world. It is made of an ecological material that has extraordinary characteristics. You will need only one touch to get to know them all.

Why you need it?

  • Perfect for HAND SKETCHING 
  • Improve TYPING speed and precision 
  • Boost your TOUCH SCREEN experience 
  • More RESISTANT than normal tempered glass 
  • Creates a SENSATION to touch inside the screen 

Story

Everything started last year when I have begun to play with a jelly tape that my doctor prescribed to me years ago. The aim was to find an additional use for this elastic and sticky material. Since I saw it again, I knew there was another use to take advantage of its features, but I could not find it. 

Then, one day, while I was looking for a way to draw and write correctly on my tablet, I realised that a fundamental difference between writing on paper and on digital screens is the softness of the surface. The paper plays an important role in handwriting, since it gives a thin layer of softness between the pen and the underlying surface. This amortises the pressure of the pen on the surface and rub its scroll on the paper. 

I immediately decided to create a substitute of the paper with similar characteristics for touch-screens devices. This will improve the experience of drawing and writing with your finger, or with the stylus, on smartphones and tablets. 

Then the vision appeared: "I could use my special plaster!". Well, I tried, but it did not work right away as I expected. However the feeling was fantastic! I started looking for a solution and after a long research, I finally found the right materials to build the screen protector. 

Who can use SOFTouch?

Everyone! Well, as long as you have a touchscreen device. In fact, although the screen protectors will be initially produced only for some of the most popular smartphones, it has been decided to also offer our backers the opportunity to order a standard size that can be cut to fit their devices.

Status

The project is ready!  As soon as orders start coming, more money will be invested on final samples for different devices and show them to you. The film is relatively easy to produce and there are already some quotes for different production volumes and from manufacturers who are ready to start. 

What are you waiting for? Help make the difference!!


Supported Devices (Precise Cut) 

**If your model is not listed above, don't panic! You can still donate for the standard size 'Only On Kickstarter' edition, and cut it to fit your device. 


Technical Details

(this may be subject to change, however we will keep you informed if this happens)

Risks and challenges

There are always risks when turning an idea into a final product. This is the first time I launch a project on Kickstarter, but I've worked on the develop of several products. If there is something that I really understood in the past it is that "there is no problem with no solution". All those who know me can say that I am precise, always on time and that I never leave something halfway. I will put everything myself to produce the best available article in its category.

As a former accountant, I think I have made appropriate calculations and have set a more manageable schedule, with the aim of not promising it and delivering too much.

If you see any issue or have any question please do not esitate to add it to the comments section of this campaign for all to see.
