Examples of prototypes manufactured in Let's Prototype.
We turn ideas, patents and inventions that remain on paper into functional prototypes with high probabilities of success.
We manufacture prototypes of high quality level. The integration of various disciplines in our invention manufacturing laboratory has allowed us to complete a catalog of more than 200 functional prototypes with the appearance of a final product.
Here are some representative prototypes of what we do in our invention factory.
Examples of Mechanical Prototypes.
The inventions manufactured in Let's Prototype usually integrate different engineering disciplines. Even so, we define the categories of inventions based on where the most critical points lie.
Mechanical prototypes can carry electronics, artificial intelligence, integrate IOT solutions, but, as a common denominator, they will have a high level of complexity in the design.
Case 01. Step without leg to attach in home and office furniture.
Access to the aerial furniture of kitchens or other home or office environments is usually a problem for the "not so tall". In the same way, we have less and less space available in our homes and offices, so making the most of the space in height, becomes a priority. Many times we do not take advantage of it, because of how difficult it would be to access these aerial furniture.
The invention consists of a structure that is integrated into furniture already democratized in the market. The prototype, as can be seen in the patent, works and integrates into the furniture with mechanical elements available on the market.
The industrial design team of Let's Prototype has achieved a functional prototype that is easily integrated into the furniture available on the market. Users only have to open or close a drawer so that, in two steps and without extraordinary efforts, a prototype of a staircase, aesthetic and minimalist, can be obtained to access the airspaces.

Case 03. Ladder with legs to integrate into furniture of houses and offices
In order to facilitate access to aerial furniture in kitchens and other environments of homes and offices, a functional prototype has been developed whose fundamental requirements were to achieve a system of steps that could be folded or deployed with two steps and mechanical movements that did not involve a great effort to users. Getting the prototype to be stored in a drawer with a height of less than 10 cm was a real challenge.
Both the identification of regulations that affect the prototype, and the study of the standards to obtain a checklist that will affect the design of a functional prototype that also complies with the standards, has represented a real challenge.
In the design process of the prototype, the analysis of materials, structure and all the necessary details were taken into account to achieve a robust yet aesthetic prototype.

Case 06. Pacifier with Vertical Drop.
Currently, in general, pacifiers are designed in a way that allows babies to suck or suck the nipple, in addition to being perfectly coupled over a baby's mouth. However, it happens that when a pacifier falls to the floor, the teat is in contact with the ground, so it is necessary to wash and even sterilize it to protect babies from possible infections. On the other hand, in general, they do not have the means to protect the teat or hide it when it is not in use, in addition to lacking means that allow a quick location of it even during the night.
The object of the present invention is to overcome the drawbacks pointed out, above all, the contact of the teat with the ground. In Let's Prototype we have designed a functional prototype that avoids the contact of the teat with the ground, regardless of the height from which the pacifier falls.
