$11,135

Rigavit is a very compact, battery powered device that cares of your plants while you are busy or abroad.

Taking care of your plants becomes hard sometimes, when you travel, go on a vacation or even when you are at home, you have lots of other responsibilities like your kids, cooking, work, you may forget to water your plants.

The plants wither if they are not watered.

That is why we wanted to create a very simple, small and elegant device that works with battery and standard water bottles. and simply to take care of our plants while we are busy or abroad.

  • Fill your water bottle. Place 1 hose to your flower, and other hose to bottle.
  • Set amount of water and timer from buttons on device.
  • Press "Start" Button. That is it.
  • It will provide a specific dose of water on schedule you set to your plants for about 6 months

Device comes with bendable silicone nozzle, it is 9 mm diameter, 15 cm length, a state of the art., it has 14 angled holes. With angles, how high you mount, it will water bigger area.

When watering the plants, the biggest trick is to penetrate water to a larger surface of your plant. Watering only 1 spot will not make your flower very happy. 15 cm long bendable silicone nozzle will reach a larger surface of your flower. This silicone nozzle has 14 watering holes and you can adjust it's shape easily for your convenience.

You can also order more bendable silicone nozzles,

  After 6 months of development and more than 5 rounds of rapid prototyping using 3d printing, cnc machining, different type of batteries, our design has been tested in different scenarios and we’re really pleased with the outcome.

  • Currently the design is going through a final iteration to refine the aesthetics so that Rigavit looks and works great too.
  • We are confident that the manufacturer we have chosen is best suited to help us get Rigavit ready for mass production so that we can deliver a product that satisfies your requirements and make you happy when you use it.

Risks and challenges

Product Development:
The Rigavit design and molding processes are finished. So, before launching the Kickstarter Project, we had already taken the Rigavit off the drawing board. We are guessing that a production of Rigavit shouldn't take more than a month.
Production
From our previous experience in designing and product managing new consumer products, we are sure that we'll get Rigavit produced within 1 month. Although we do not foresee delays in production, but quality control reasons sometimes require a temporary production break in order to make sure that only top quality products are shipped. But these delays are no more than 1 or 2 weeks.
Distribution
We know that distribution might become a significant challenge. A device working with 4 AA battery should not cause any problems when distributing it. We have been working with the international courier companies to deliver our previous products all around the world.
