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.
Looks like the final product, but is not functional.
Appearance and function match the final product, but is made with different manufacturing methods.
Appearance, function, and manufacturing methods match the final product.
Risks and challenges
We have addressed all the major and expected issues that may arise in the successful production and delivery of The Tock™. All the big pieces of the puzzle are in place, and we are realistically planning to deliver all orders on time.
As of this writing, all needed materials / components are good in stock at our suppliers, we have the staff and support ready to start assembling and packaging- and Patent and Trademark devices are already setup. The challenge... is to NOT reach our funding goal!
WE WILL KEEP ALL BACKERS AND OUR ONLINE COMMUNITY INFORMED OF THE PROGRESS during this campaign, the production, and in the future. Expect OUTSTANDING customer service with us- and if any snags happen; we will post about that too. It's important to keep EVERYONE in the loop.
The Tock™ includes a TWO-YEAR warranty on parts AND labor- more info will be in the FAQ section. Please, reach out with any questions / comments- we will respond right away.
