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.

Mini-Troll is ultra-portable and ultra-pocketable speaker. Just in 2 inches tall, you can take it anywhere. Go to a barbecue . Take it camping or traveling. Use the audio extender for the office, or a conference call. The MiniTroll can be used in so many ways. You'll take it with you everywhere. 

 

       

 

       

 

 

 

Risks and challenges

6 years of experience with Vibe-Tribe, 10 models already designed, manufactured and launched with success, almost 300.000 resonance speakers on the market in the hands of happy customers and an expert, motivated and passionate team who has already proved on the field that any issue can be solved.

We have worked extremely hard to ready this product for Kickstarter and full-scale manufacturing and fulfillment, but here are what I see as the risks:

MANUFACTURING: We already have created the tooling and the moulds to manufacture all the previous Vive-Tribe products, the process requires expert knowledge to get it right. We’re already working with tooling manufacturers partners with a track record for prompt quality.

PRODUCT ADJUSTMENTS: Pre-production prototypes have been made in large scale to test and refine the product and allow us to incorporate our adjustments and those suggested by experienced partners. The mini Troll is already in advanced stage along the FCC, ROHS and CE certification processes.

FULFILLMENT: The manufacturers involved in the mini Troll production have 6 years of experience delivering excellent products in tremendous quantities to us. Vibe Tribe’s internal knowledge and maniacal control on the process will ensure you get your mini Troll on time.

CUSTOMS & DUTIES: As we are shipping these products all over the world, it is impossible for us to build in the various duties, VAT and Duties tax for each location through Kickstarter. For low values and private use usually the VAT and Duties are not required but we cannot guarantee or take responsibility for custom rules in the various different countries, this means you might be required to pay duties or taxes if required by the custom of your country. Please refer to your country custom for updated and detailed info.

SHIPPING POLICY: Within 24 hours of your order being shipped you will receive a tracking link with your shipping details. When you receive your tracking #, please keep an eye out for the package. Shipping transit will normally have a 7-21 Business day delivery time depending on your country.

Any pledge amount brings us one step closer to our goal. Help us making the mini Troll a commercial product by clicking the ‘Back This Project’ button at the top of the page, or by helping us spread the word by sharing our page.

THANK YOU for your help!
