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.

  • Scene-Based Setting Optimization

With the enabled algorithm, Aurga is built with an intelligent system that tells the DSLR the best configuration settings in light conditions. 

Aurga learned from thousands of sample photos, and the number keeps counting...

Aurga makes it super easy for you to shoot many types of photos. We analyzed hundreds of thousands of photographs to determine the optimal settings for shooting conditions and Aurga’s powerful intelligent system instantly gives you 6 quick options for common needs with a single button push. 

Since its database is constantly being updated, you’ll always have the right technique for any shot.

  • Multi-Camera-Bridging

Aurga allows photographers to bridge multiple cameras. With a single app, photographer could control many cameras to view live images, set camera settings and shoot photos. 

  • Timelapse

Aurga helps beginners learn the fundamentals while being a valuable time saver for professionals. For time lapses, experienced users can expose for changing light by the hour or even by the minute. And for beginners, it has pre-set modes for a variety of situations. You can preview your timelapse when it’s finished and export a video directly from the app.

  •  HDR

Aurga can even capture scenes with High Dynamic Range. It takes 3 photos at different exposures and combines them into a single deep, highly detailed image. 

  • Focus Stack

Aurga calculates the optimal number of exposures, takes them at different focus positions, and merges them into one crystal clear image.

Aurga can control your DSLR from up to 100 feet (30 meters). You can do anything easily on the App screen and shoot exactly what you can see. Shooting remotely will also reduce the impact of handshaking and allows you achieve better photos.

What`s more, with Aurga there is no need to upload the photos to a laptop first and then share to social networks. Simply click the share button directly from the App and that`s all.

While shooting perfect photos in the outdoors it’s important to stay connected. If you need to charge your phone, Aurga can help. It contains a 2600 mAh battery built-in that can be used as a battery backup to charge your devices.

Risks and challenges

We fully expect to deliver Aurga with exceptional quality according to our timeline. However, even the most well-planned manufacturing process can meet unpredictable hiccups.
Most likely to present difficulties is the intelligent algorithm, which we intend to continue upgrading based on testing and beta customer feedback.
The Android and iOS companion apps will be rigorously tested and optimized to deliver a great user experience. Depending on feedback, aspects of the app may need to be reworked and fine-tuned and we will continue work on it to deliver the best features and ease of use at release.
As the project moves forward, we will keep our backers updated and informed with transparent communication and frequent updates. Thank you!
