A prototype is a preliminary model of something. Projects that offer physical products need to show backers documentation of a working prototype. This gallery features photos, videos, and other visual documentation that will give backers a sense of what’s been accomplished so far and what’s left to do. Though the development process can vary for each project, these are the stages we typically see:
Proof of Concept
Explorations that test ideas and functionality.
Demonstrates the functionality of the final product, but looks different.
Looks like the final product, but is not functional.
Appearance and function match the final product, but is made with different manufacturing methods.
Appearance, function, and manufacturing methods match the final product.
Love your pet but hate the litter box cleaning routine? Scooping at least once a day, washing thoroughly with detergent when refilling, replacing plastic litter box itself once a year, etc. Other common problems include cleaning up the mess of litter spread all over the floor (especially carpet) and odor. A team of young engineers have solved this problem for you!
CATOLET - no more troubles! Now your pet will greet you with a joyful purr, because its tray will always be clean!
CATOLET - the world's newest and unique automatic litter box for cats and small dogs that does not require any filler nor cleaning. It is based on a conveyor system for waste disposal with automatic washing of the conveyor belt and flushing to the sewer. Whenever the pet is placed inside the automatic tray, the sensor detects its presence and monitors when it leaves the CATOLET device. After a period of time, which is set individually, flushing is carried out. Waste is not collected in any container, filler is not required, whereas, the waste is crushed and washed down the sewer. After flushing, the device is ready for the use again.
The conveyor system lets all the liquid through without leaving a single drop. Paws of your pet will always be dry.
Solid wastes are removed with the help of conveyor system and a shredder. Further removal of waste to the sewage system is carried out by the means of a pump.
We have conducted a lot of test runs, which proved the effectiveness of the device.
To train/teach your cat to a new tray, there is an adaptation system in place. The time of training to a new tray is about 2-21 days. You can also use the decomposing filler in small quantities, pouring a little on the conveyor in order for your cat to get used to a new tray.
The device is connected simply, in TWO ways:
1. To the water supply and sewage system
The kit includes 2.0 m hoses for connection.
2. You can also connect to the nearest faucet and toilet bowl The kit includes 2.0 m hoses for connection.
Everything is simple!
connection CATOLET basics
In the CATOLET automatic box, a sensor is installed which detects leakage and malfunction of the water supply system, whenever it is activated, the system shuts the water supply and informs the owner of the malfunction. Thus, CATOLET is an autonomous system for protection against water leaks.
This option is available in all versions of the device.
The device can be controlled and configured via mobile application. In the setup mode, you can set the binding time (this is very convenient, since all animals have their own character). The application runs on different mobile operating systems. In the mobile application, you can track the intervals and the number of trips of your pet, violation of cycles, water flow and other parameters. The tray is equipped with a leakage sensor, and in case of a sudden situation, the system will send a message to your smartphone.
The case is made of sanitary acrylics; the conveyor belt is made out of composite materials that are resistant to claws and aggressive environment. Whereas, the conveyor tape is made with through holes, so that the pet does not wet its paws.
Designers will give a choice of five single-colored body colors-from pink to blue, as well as prints in the form of cat's paws or cute cat faces.
We all know how cats like all sorts of dark and secluded places. For cat's comfort, we have developed a removable shelter in which your pet will feel wonderful! Thanks to special grooves, the shelter is easily attached to the automatic tray. In addition, the shelter has its own design and can serve as a shelf for various accessories, which is very convenient and saves space.
Our beloved pets have another problem – closed doors. In order for your pet to freely enter the room, where stands its tray, you will find door limiters in each configuration of the device!
CATOLET is the most compact automatic litter Box, which is designed for cats of any breed and age. For adult Maine Coons or very large fattened cats a special line of the device is presented. Also it can be used for mini dogs - York Terriers, Pomeranians, Chihuahua and others, according to the similar size.

Risks and challenges
We are a start-up with a growing team, offering a new high-tech device.
Any project could encounter unexpected obstacles, and this possibility is even more likely in the case of a technology project that requires device manufacturing.
We have finalized designs of our product and a working prototype and already signed agreements with key components manufacturers and suppliers.
We have thoroughly studied successful crowdfunding campaigns – including those that
delivered on-time and those that delayed delivery – in order to learn and improve upon
our own process.
All products shown in connection with this campaign are prototypes that demonstrate
the intended function of the final device. The final product will require certain product
certifications, which introduces third party variables to the production schedule. To
mitigate this risk, we will design the products to be compliant with all requirements and
pursue these certifications.
It is safe to say that we have reduced many of the risks typical of a hardware startup!
However, as with any newly manufactured product, it is possible that some unexpected events
could impact the actual production time frame.
We provide a warranty on all of our products sold in the USA and other regions.
We are working hard to find appropriate regional distributors who will bear the responsibility for service and support.
Our commitment is to deliver an exceptional product on-time, and communicate with you regularly along our journey of getting Catolet delivered to you!
