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.

 What is it?

  The MSL - Micro Safety Light - is a compact flashlight and safety device. It's the light you'll want everyone to own! 

  • The portable design makes it easy to take anywhere.
  • It glows in the dark so it's easy to find. 
  • Attaches to a SUPER loud emergency whistle.
  • It runs for almost 6 full days on pulse mode. 
  • It's the perfect little gift for your wife, father-in-law, teacher, grandparent because anyone can find a use for it.

The stainless steel clip attaches securely to keys, backpacks, lanyards, purses, diaper bags, strollers, and more. 

Our Glow-in-the-Dark Technology:

This is NOT your average glow in the dark material:

This is not your average glow-in-the-dark keychain. We've taken glow-in-the-dark and put it on steroids. (Watch Video)

 The "Pulse Mode":

Use the "Pulse Mode" on walks, hikes, camping & backpacking trips, it makes you more visible in the dark without draining battery power. (Watch Video)

Reminder Mode:

Need a gentle reminder sometimes? The MSL features a 15-minute reminder mode. Use it at the office, in the home, or with your kids. (Watch Video)

Why is it called a "safety light"?

1. You're more visible in the dark

2. Inserts into an emergency whistle

 The MSL inserts to an extremely loud (115 decibel) emergency whistle which is great for survival situations, natural disasters, crime prevention, or to ward off animals. It's much louder and less exhausting than yelling for help. And the pitch of this whistle can be heard over loud rescue equipment or ambient noises.

Risks and challenges

This is our 3rd Kickstarter campaign, we've learned a lot each time and we're still very proud of the products we created. We have an excellent relationship with our manufacturers that started 30 years ago with my dad on other electronic projects and they're ready to produce another product for us.
We had some international shipping issues with the Mule Light V2 last time because of the rechargeable lithium-ion battery. For this project, we kept it simple by not including a rechargeable option. If you want rechargeable CR2016 batteries we can send you a link to the batteries and the charger.
