What is a prototype?

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.

Functional Prototype

Demonstrates the functionality of the final product, but looks different.

Appearance Prototype

Looks like the final product, but is not functional.

Design Prototype

Appearance and function match the final product, but is made with different manufacturing methods.

Production Prototype

Appearance, function, and manufacturing methods match the final product.

About

 

MATRIX Voice was built with a mission to give every maker, tinkerer, and developer around the world a complete, affordable, and user-friendly tool for simple to complex Internet of Things (IoT) voice app creation.

At glance, the FPGA-driven development board for the Raspberry Pi is a developers dream. To simplify hardware application development, MATRIX Voice includes MATRIX OS, which allows developers to build hardware applications in just a few lines of code using JavaScript.

 

 

 

 

The 8 MEMs microphone array on MATRIX Voice allows you to leverage voice recognition in your app creations by using the latest online cognitive services including Microsoft Cognitive Service, Amazon Alexa Voice Service, Google Speech API, Wit.ai and Houndify. You can trigger events based on sound detections, such as receiving a text message when your dog is barking back home. 

This demo shows that you can build your own Amazon's Alexa using a Raspberry Pi and MATRIX Voice. In it we use the Alexa Voice Services (AVS), it is the service used by Amazon Echo that allows us to accomplish many of the challenging tasks in this project.

 

This demo shows the PocketSphinx voice recognition service running on a Raspberry Pi and MATRIX Voice with the MATRIX Voice connected to a MATRIX Creator in order to use its ZigBee radio to control a Philips Hue lightbulb. It's a great example of how you can use the MATRIX Voice for voice recognition throughout your house and only need one MATRIX Creator to interface with your smart devices.

 

 

 

 

The MATRIX Voice “Home Kit” is the ideal perk for "Home IoT enthusiasts."  For only $335, you can convert a home into a powerhouse of technology, featuring 1x MATRIX Creator and 2x MATRIX Voice. You can download smart IoT apps instantly via our App Store. Basically, you are integrating the latest in computer vision and voice recognition intelligence right into your home. As an example, place one MATRIX Creator in your living room as the main hub, and place MATRIX Voices in 2 separate rooms.

For a complete smart home, place a MATRIX Voice in every-room!

 

 

 

 

 

Unleash your creativity with MATRIX Voice. The preciseness of the microphones and their algorithms allow you to build more, faster. Our community collaborates on projects and brings amazing ideas to life. Join our community here.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

It is really easy to manage your apps on the MATRIX Platform. You are able to configure apps via the mobile application and use intuitive and customizable dashboards to pull information from one or more apps. The MATRIX mobile app is currently available on the Apple App Store and the Google Play Store.

 

 

 

 

See https://github.com/matrix-io.

At $55, you can experience the power of MATRIX Voice. Kits are available on Kickstarter!

 

 

We ship everywhere, including New Caledonia. MATRIX Creator has shipped to over 50 countries to date so shipping is not a problem. Perks will be fulfilled by end of October 2017.

United States packages will most likely be shipped via USPS Priority Mail (2-3 days). 

International packages will most likely be shipped via USPS First Class.

We will update you on any courier changes but shipping prices will not change. 

It all began with a Kickstarter campaign for MATRIX - The Internet of Things for Everyone:

During our original Kickstarter campaign for MATRIX (our consumer-focused device which ships Q4 of 2017) and immediately after, we were overwhelmed by the waves of developers asking us to also design a board based on MATRIX but specifically for IoT/AI development. Their request was for us to release a hardware building block that was inexpensive, packed with enough components to make it compelling, and easy for them to start developing applications for MATRIX.

This occurred organically based on developer-centric input and we decided to go to the drawing board and see if we could make it happen as a “starter MATRIX.” In a nutshell, we packaged portions of the vast progress made on the MATRIX device and launched "MATRIX Creator." In only 5 months, we have shipped tens of thousands of MATRIX Creators globally and created a super involved community. You can learn more about our successfully funded Indiegogo campaign by visiting here.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

         

But then we were overwhelmed again by the waves of developers asking us for a dev board specifically for Voice applications based on MATRIX Creator. Their request was for us to release a hardware building block that was inexpensive, included everything they needed to make Voice applications, and was easy for them to start developing applications with. The result of this is the MATRIX Voice.

 

 

 

 

 

Post in the comments section! Let's catapult an Internet of Things app economy where every maker, tinkerer, and developer around the world can bring their ideas to life. Tell your friends and family about MATRIX Voice!

 

 

 

 

Who will pay taxes on international orders of MATRIX Voice?

Import taxes, duties, etc for the device will be paid by the recipient at the destination. 

How much does MATRIX Voice weigh?

MATRIX Voice weighs 2 oz.

Risks and challenges

Possible Delays
Procurement of parts: Our supply chain has been thoroughly tested through our MATRIX Creator dev board and we are confident that it will withstand demand, however due to circumstances out of our control it is possible that shipment of orders could be delayed up to a month due to possible shortages in parts. We will provide an update if this occurs.
Certification: The MATRIX Voice has already been sent to be CE certified however we have gone through this certification before and are confident that we will pass with flying colors. If there is a modification that needs to be made to meet compliance we will need to delay shipping of MATRIX Voice for a month to meet certification. We will provide an update if this occurs.

Past Kickstarter Projects:
We are finalizing preparing our Kickstarter campaign MATRIX for manufacturing and are on track to ship by the end of 2017.
