    We believe that 100,000 rpm blenders will make better margaritas than existing blenders will. We go into the garage with a motor clamped to the bench, and a blade and jar from our wife's blender in the kitchen. Sure enough, it makes an excellent margarita except the drive coupling on the jar burnt out and we owe her a blender. That is proof of concept.

    Next we need to get a real motor, a real jar and a real drive mechanism that can handle the speed and put it all into a package that moves towards something we can sell. That isn't just "a prototype", it is prototyping. More of a process than one single item.
