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.

These photos and videos provide a detailed look at this project’s development.

Coffee Card Robot is a posable figure made from 2 gift cards. The cards are cut and heat formed into shape. Holes are punched for the bolts to be screwed in and hold the figure together.

Each robot is made from 16 pieces of gift card plastic and 14 bolts. The robot comes unassembled. The included screwdriver makes for easy assembly. Got your own cards? Let's upcycle them! Backers will be given a shipping address if you want to send in your own spent gift cards.
