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.

Risks and challenges

Because Wristruments is so new and unique, proving this type of technology useful in an educational setting has been one of our biggest hurdles. To overcome this we have tested Wristruments diligently with musicians and non-musicians from all ages and backgrounds to create the most effective learning tool we can.

As you can see in our main video, we've made it to the point where we can truly give someone a watch, have them sit down and learn something without any outside interference. This is incredible to us, and the point we knew we needed to be at before being able to really scale Wristruments to the level it should be at.

Reusability and recyclability

Sustainable materials

Reducing paper use by providing an alternative to sheet music, printed books and tabs.
