We have assembled our Two Minute Turtle timer, exclusive, hand made batches of original design. What a journey to get to this stage, to a minimum viable product. After testing 10 different versions of prototypes with children brushing their teeth, with parents and pediatric dentists, this Two Minute Turtle is hatching from our basement.
The Two Minute Turtle is Ready to Serve You
Each part of the Two Minute Turtle has grown and changed:
Energy: from plug in, to triple A to 2 coin cells to 1 coin cell battery.
Circuit board: from rectangle to turtle shaped
LEDs: from large through hole bulging LEDS including 1 blue color to small surface mount LEDs without the blue. We had to lose the blue light because it drained too much of the battery.
Case: from space ship looking, white 3D printed plastic to encapsulated clear solid and smooth epoxy. Now, each Two Minute Turtle takes 3 separate pours of epoxy and each pour needs 48 hours to dry.
Color: from white plastic to clear epoxy with color backs- blue or purple, orange or pink.
Adhering to mirror: from sitting on the counter to adhering to mirror with velcro to micro suction tape.
This evolution have helped us create a minimum viable product. From the testimonials of our crowdfunding campaign we have seen the Two Minute Turtle is helping families with every day tasks. Our next step is design for manufacturing, assembly from out of our basement to a manufacturing plant. Each one of you who buys, tries and tests, helps hatch the Two Minute Turtle! Let us know how it helps you with two minute tasks and how it could work better for you. Thanks.
