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.

Hi, our names are Shelley and Tyrone, and we are proud parents of twin baby girls! We are also the founders of The TOTOKAN MONITOR (tou .tou. can), your portable baby and toddler monitor.

We couldn't keep our eyes off of our kiddos, so we tried our best to look for a baby monitor with reliable technology. It needed to be flexible enough to go wherever our twins went and durable for everyday parenting - that means drop AND drool proof!

With the emphasis on the second criteria, our search was unsuccessful! 

SO WE INVENTED OUR OWN and we’re now manufacturing it with a scheduled delivery date for the US in early September 2017. However, we need your support to scale up and offer the monitor in an additional color!

WORLD, SAY HELLO TO TOTOKAN!

The TOTOKAN Baby & Toddler Monitor is designed to be the world’s most flexible and most durable baby monitor. It includes all the traditional baby monitor features + a whole lot more.

TOTOKAN is rugged and tough - its case is made to be 3-times thicker than any average baby monitor available in the market. No worries if it drops off the table or shelf, TOTOKAN will survive.

Now you can take a peace of mind, knowing your baby is safe

You need a TOTOKAN if...

  • You are parents with more than one baby/toddler. Sometimes our kids just don't want to be in the same room, you can choose to monitor the older ones while taking care of the baby. 
  • You work from home and need to get some work done but the toddler is asleep or playing in another room or out of sight? Just unplug and plop Totokan anywhere you need. 
  • Your family is 'on the go', while traveling, visiting friends, or camping. Sync directly to the monitor without relying on a strangers wi-fi signal. 
  • You are a nanny and a childcare worker who need an extra pair of eyes.
A peace of mind, wherever you are
A peace of mind, wherever you are

But the greatest thing about TOTOKAN is how easy it is to use.

  • No WiFi? No problem! The "Out & About" feature in the app allows you the option to sync locally with an active range of 60 yards/meters! 
  • No plug? Still no problem! TOTOKAN has more than 4 hours of battery life when unplugged.
  • TOTOKAN is portable and wireless. Pick it up, toss it in your bag and take it everywhere with
  • Never miss a moment. Indoors or outdoors, TOTOKAN is a baby monitor that allows you to keep an eye on your little ones, anytime and anywhere.
  • Bring it to the beach or by the pool side. TOTOKAN's thick casing and durable rubber coating make it water resistant. Waterplay is fun and safe when TOTOKAN is with you.
  • The free TOTOKAN app is available for Android and iOS. Livestream your child DIRECTLY to your smart devices in HD or save it to your phone’s album or your DropBox account for FREE.
  • Record videos and take pictures. Totokan streams hi-res video directly to your smartphone or tablet.
  • See everything and talk to your baby - the free, the user-friendly app can track up to 4 TOTOKANs in the same time. A talk-back feature included.

WHAT ARE PEOPLE SAYING?

“Parents need to monitor their children in more than just the nursery. At a play date’s house my baby naps in one room while my older kid plays in the backyard with his friends, Totokan gives me the flexibility to monitor either of them, right at my fingertips,“ said Alexandra W. mother of two.

"This is perfect for camping or vacations where I need to be a responsible parent at night, but I also really need a drink on the balcony, haha!" JJ Brownlee.

"Being able to see everything is key for me! I'm going to use this on my two toddlers, the babysitter, and maybe the dog too." Kelly E.

"This might be nice for keeping an eye on my little buddy when we are on different floors of the house. I love how it is portable, I'll move it anywhere." Meghan L.

"Amazing sensitivity to light and dark, with great night time viewing. We also noticed there was a minimal drag." Our distributor's compliance team!

Risks and challenges

We are in the production and manufacturing phase already as the first shipment to the US is ready to ship soon!

We need help to ramp up our manufacturing and be able to offer and additional color to our original orange.

The potential risk would be delays in shipment as the battery parts we use are sometimes harder to source. Not everyone uses the expensive batteries we use with our monitor.

Another risk would be some delays as a few of our parts vendors ask for high minimum orders. This is where Kickstarter can help! By reaching a minimum order we will be able to ramp up our production and have a faster delivery date.
