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 Driftpad10 project involves the construction of large rally-style race track for use with hot wheels cars and a final 10-minute video production showing the track in action.

I’ve been selling my Driftpad product for several years and the tracks are generally just a couple feet long, but this one is going to be about 6feet long and features circuit track with cars continually circulating around the track. But the best feature is the long drift area with sponsor barriers on either side. The track then leads to a u-turn follow by a booster area just before a jump feature. The cars then return to the elevator feature which starts the circuit again.

I’m giving backers an opportunity to sponsor various parts of the track including the wall barriers along the drift area, the jump feature, and the tire arch. Backers will also enjoy rewards such as Driftpad stickers and limited edition Hotwheels cars with Driftpad graphics. The funds raised will pay for the printing of the track. The printing is high quality as you can see in earlier Driftpads including this track designed for a RedBull GRC event.

Risks and challenges

Some features of the track will be hard to build, especially the u-turn piece. I'm also concerned about the jump feature. Dimensions and appearance of these features will change from the original prototype and renderings in order to make a consistently working track.
