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.

The Swan Pool Rail is an elegant addition to any swimming pool. This beautiful hand crafted handrail is made out of aluminum and is finished with a non rust textured powder coating. The railing is adjustable and made to fit most pool stairs and beach entries. Matching escutcheons are included. I'm raising funds so that I can have some inventory and to be exhibiting in trade shows such as the Int'l Pool | Spa | Patio Expo www.poolspapatio.com . I also need a website and some advertising. The feedback I have been receiving has been outstanding. 

Risks and challenges

I don't see much risk. I have a patent pending and have made and sold several of them them so far. The feedback I have received has been outstanding.
