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.
Demonstrates the functionality of the final product, but looks different.
Looks like the final product, but is not functional.
Appearance and function match the final product, but is made with different manufacturing methods.
Appearance, function, and manufacturing methods match the final product.
Don't you wish there was a better way to travel with your liquid products?
It's almost 2018 and there is still no perfect solution to traveling with liquids that is secure, sleek, both works and looks great. So we decided to make one.
ZIRUI GO Case is a compact, secure, sleek and simple solution to travel with your essential liquids. It saves you space and time so you can travel with your favorite products on the go.
No more carrying your toiletries in plastic wraps and bags, bulky cases, or tucking your toiletries in random nooks and crannies of your suitcases and travel bags.
Spilling your shampoo all over everything is the worst and finding out your favorite facial oil leaked is just heart-breaking. Whether you're on the go or catching a flight, ZIRUI GO Case is safe, visible and easily accessible.
How does it work?
Simple and Intuitive Design
What makes ZIRUI Go Case special?
Our original ZIRUI 'GO' Casecomes with three 30ml / 1oz. bottles bottles and a bonus modular case for miscellaneous products such as Q-tips, ear plugs, cotton pads, you name it! Our patented bottles are thoughtfully designed to be under TSA approved carry-on sizes, and are so securely sealed with a lockable pump that they won't leak or break.
The bottles snap onto the outer board via magnets, the whole user experience is thus smooth and satisfying. Think LEGO and Rubik's Cubes! Because our modules are designed to fit together, we save you so much space when you're on the go. You also no longer have to dig through a bag to locate your products, instead, everything you have and need, lays right there in front of you.
You can get ZIRUI GO Case in Dusty Rose, Black, and limited edition DISCO.
And, all of ZIRUI's products are cruelty-free.
Although we are designed for travel, we are also designed for the busy everyday life of the modern humans, such as commuting, going to the gym, having a fun night out..
The functional can finally look good.
Yes, we are fully committed and are working hard to make this happen.
Together our team has conducted hundreds of user interviews, we know what's missing. And we want to solve the problem one step at a time. This Kickstarter is a big first step for us.
We know beauty and care packaging can be and needs to be optimized for modern context.Everyone is increasingly busy and constantly changing in and out of their social roles such as students, parents, professionals, consumers, etc. The context of beauty has expanded beyond the home, to bars, meeting rooms, cars, and planes.
We want to make a series of products that reflects and supports the modern needs, so people can spend less time looking beautiful, and spend more time living a beautiful life.
Why do we need your support?
We have secured our manufacturers and have set up our supply chain, we have two supply chain experts advising us and before we launched a Kickstarter, we did a manufacturing tour in both US and China, to ensure we would know whom to go to for different qualities, quantities, and materials. Now we have established relationships with a full range of factories that can handle small and large quantities. We have adjusted our models to be fully production-ready! But to bring ZIRUI GO Case to market, we need your support for tooling to be able to make these at scale.
Sometimes the simplest designs require the most work. We have spent over a year developing this product, from an idea, to a patent-pending design, to a production ready product, meanwhile having everyone of our team members beinga full-time college student. We have been working very hard on this project and really want to bring it to life. Our Kickstarter campaign, if successful, will help us with：
Fulfill and deliver our first orders
But further more, you would help bring this project to life, and allow us to keep doing this, keep creating more beauty, care, and grooming products beyond this one product. In the end, you should have all of your beauty and care products in a portable and modular form so you can choose what to bring on the go, and have a collection to choose from..
Now is your chance to back the next generation of beauty and care products. Help bring ZIRUI GO Case to the world.
ZIRUI hopes to take the first step in creating more user-friendly and efficient beauty and care products that embody a modern lifestyle. If ZIRUI GO Case succeeds, there will be more designs and collections to come. Our goal is to truly mobilize beauty and care products, and design the packagings that actually reflect the modern lifestyle.
Thank you for your support. (If you've read this far ;)
Risks and challenges
We at ZIRUI have been prototyping and 3D printing design variations over the past 10 months to ensure this product is ready for you the consumer.
We have also been working closely with manufacturers and expert sourcing companies to roll ZIRUI Go Case out as smoothly and quickly as possible. Unfortunately, there are always risks for delay of delivery. Our expected goal for fulfillment is February 2018.
Things that could go wrong and how we are avoiding them.
1. Tooling and Mold time is longer than expected.
- To ensure we do not over promise and under deliver, we have already begun working with manufacturers. The design is injection mold ready and the manufacturing timeline has been given a significant buffer to account for problems.
2. Shipping issues
- We have contracted a very reliable and experienced freight company to ensure that the product arrives on time. Once we receive the products, we have an experienced team ready to fulfill each of your orders.
3. The Design is not ready
- the ZIRUI Go case has been printed to almost identical specifications of an injection molded part. The design has been nailed down and tested, and is ready for large scale production. We have put our foot on the pedal, just waiting for your help to GO.
These are some of the most common problems among Kickstarter campaigns and each of them has been addressed by our team and taken into consideration.
Although we have planned for the worst, there are always things that could go wrong outside of our control. We promise to keep you informed and to deliver as soon as possible.
