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.

About

INTRODUCTION

It was pointed out to us by a close friend 'AFTER' we launched this project, that we hadn't made it very clear WHY we need this funding...

The truth of this is largely timing and scale. Its the end of the season, so LOTS of people are thinking about discarding their broken beach items, in addition, we have received MORE and MORE email each day from all around the world, with people wanted to organise collections, deliveries and donations... We are a family business and whilst we can/have and enjoy large volumes of orders, the pace of this has been such that we need to employ people straight away in order to deal with what is now, a completely separate entity...

Below is the original blog post, so you can better see where the idea came from and how we have managed the initiative so far...

"I've *nearly* come to terms now, with the fact that I've become known locally as 'bag lady'- obviously my family think thats hilarious!

People leave their old windbreaks, trampolines, rubber dinghies and all sorts of other beach paraphernalia, outside our workshop all the time!

After this years disastrous attempt at having our own paddling pool in the garden [our cat pierced the sides of it, within 2 weeks!!] it reminded me of an idea i had a couple of years ago, but haven't had a chance to put into practice...

The Wyatt & Jack Inflatable Amnesty, is based on the same idea, that lots of beach goers, would be ending up throwing quite a few broken inflatables and water toys, into bins either before the end of their holidays, or on their way home...

So... THIS YEAR, If you have an inflatable that has a puncture that you can't repair, or is intended for the bin- send it our way and we will turn it into bags" 

This excerpt is taken from the blog post thats sparked this project! The response has been AMAZING and snowballed beyond anything we could've hoped for!

As a result, we now have collection points for Inflatables that would otherwise have ended up in landfill- across the COUNTRY and some parts of Europe.

In order for us to collect and/or make sure they are all delivered to us and a continuous cycle of products are being made and plastic saved from landfill,, we are looking for this funding, so we can then facilitate the enormous scale of it and hopefully turn it into a global initiative, quickly!

Risks and challenges

The biggest challenge is finding the best way to utilise the fabrics, so there is little to no waste.
Fortunately, as we have been working with salvaged materials for almost a decade now, we are used to the difficulties faced when working with unique fabrics and shapes.
We also have the facilities to make here in the UK so we can keep a close eye on quality control and ensure excellent customer service.
The biggest logistical challenge we face is time, hence this project. We need to get to all the collection points as soon as possible as people are organising collections and are low on storage solutions as the items can be quite big.
