Marrying the physical, digital and data building blocks brings concepts to life with a full ‘looks-like, works-like’ product prototype.

Successive prototyping

We combine existing knowledge, research and testing to refine, optimise and minaturise the design into a full representative system.

Design review

We work collaboratively with you to solve the inter-component interactions, iterate design and deliver a Concept Prototype which demonstrates the product’s core value proposition.

Data collection

Data is the lifeblood of a product, allowing advanced intelligence and insights to drive decisions and user value. A Concept Prototype allows you to put a real device in to the hands of users.

Specification and roadmap

Encapsulating our expert recommendations, technical specifications and costings into a clear roadmap. You can continue your product development journey, with all the major technical risks mitigated.


A Concept Prototype demonstrates the proposition’s investment potential by bringing together learnings and unifying tested blocks into a prototype ecosystem. This demonstrator can be presented to stakeholders, triggering the next stage of development and critical user testing.

As well as full product prototypes and validation of the systems architecture, Thrive’s expert team consolidate their knowledge and recommendations into a qualified technical specification and costed delivery roadmap which informs the next steps in a de-risked development, allowing you to continue with confidence.

“Thrive rapidly delivered a proof of concept which validates our capability to deliver integrated wearable technology in our soft goods range, opening up new business opportunities. Their knowledge in smart fabrics, plastics and product design resulted in a valuable plausible demonstrator for this purpose.”
