Now with a valid and working concept design its time to start prototyping the concepts, same shape different sizes, scaled up versions to see how the different detailed patterns might feel.
With a few rapid prototypes made they need to be tested to see which size and pattern might be correct and feel right in the hand. But when testing these models it is important to remember that the blue foam material does not share the same likeness and feel of the material I am planning on using to create the product. The material I am hoping for this product to be made out of silicone and this is a slightly less hard and structured material which will have more give to in once it is held in the hand. So to be able to understand this difference, I ordered some casting silicone material in two different shore strengths to allow me to test which might be best or if a mixture (like i am hoping to do) will work as well.
