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.
Goofy Foot [ˈgüfēˌfu̇t ] adjective
1. A term in board sports (e.g. skateboarding, surfing, and snowboarding) for riding with the RIGHT foot forward, as opposed to the more common way (left foot forward).
2. A term in video games for leading with the RIGHT thumb, as opposed to the more common way (left thumb on the D-Pad).
Tony Hawk, a Right-Handed living legend, skated his way to the top standing goofy footed. It's a misconception that the term Goofy Foot refers to being left handed.
Let's bring Jonas some heat this year, using the strengths of our right thumb. Boom Tetris for Goofy Foot!
Let's be real, we're not making the Goofy Foot to become rich. It's a labor of love, with a driving passion to introduce an alternative way to playing our favorites. With this said, we designed the circuit board with the community in mind. No black resin blobs hiding secret circuitry, we are encouraging the curious to unscrew the back plate and check it out. Pimp your Goofy Foot by adding LEDs, just wire them up to the extra PWR and GND pads provided.
Considering the preservation of the original controllers, we have designed the Goofy Foot Mod so that it is just as easy to return the controller back to it's original condition. The Action Switch is set back far enough, to fit within the walls of the controller's plastics, so that it fits without grinding. For the dedicated Goofy Foot player, a small window can be cut from the lower casing, allowing easy access for swapping the 'A' and 'B' buttons. Details will be provided in the instructions.
A great kit for new electronic hobbyists, the difficulty level of the Goofy Foot MOD is based on the tools you have. Watch John Riggs put together the BASIC Goofy Foot Mod kit in his kitchen.
A kit for any skill level.
It's simple, we need your help with the initial order of circuit boards. The larger the order the lower the cost. If we were to order is small batches, the price of the mod kits would undesirable to everyone. We have already purchased the additional components and packaging, The boards are the last piece before the kits are ready to ship. There's no stopping us, but we could really get things cooking with a little help. Let's do this!

Our biggest fear is a delay in delivery. With that said, as a hardware project, there are several standard obstacles we must consider:
1. Promising the impossible.
The Goofy Foot Controller is already a working prototype, so no stress here. Luckily we’re not taking on Marty McFly’s hover board.
2. Promising the possible, but not being able to build it.
With careful planning to launch the Kickstarter campaign, we pushed it back a few weeks to ensure that we had all our ducks in a row. All components of the Goofy Foot controller have been sourced, establishing relationships with each vendor. We are not fans of surprises.
3. Running out of money before making the delivery.
We have been careful on budgeting the cost and shipping, in order to cover the tooling, processing, manufacturing, and assembly of the Goofy Foot. A small line of credit has been saved to help any costs that got missed, ensuring delivery won’t be delayed due to lack of funds.
The risk of a natural disaster or an unexpected world event are real and out of our control. With a solid game plan in place we strive to do our best, here at TotalRadNES, to get you playing Goofy Foot on time.
