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.

 With the PiTalk, you can do anything a normal phone can, and much more. With it's hardware designed with compatibility and modularity in mind, the PiTalk can be used with your own hardware or with your own specifications. 

Can you make your smartphone's display bigger or smaller without having to buy a bigger or a smaller smartphone? With the PiTalk you can !!! Just plug in a different display and voila !!!

Ever buy a smartphone and feel that it's camera still leaves something to be desired? With the PiTalk you can easily plug-in a better camera WITHOUT having to buy a new shield !!!

Ever felt that the built-in audio of your smartphone is not crisp, or the bass isn't just what it should be? With the PiTalk you can easily plug-in ANY speaker available in the market that suits your needs !!!

Ever felt that the built-in OS of your smartphone is pretty much basic and you want to customize it but the options available aren't good enough? And the process of jailbreaking or 'rooting' is pretty much daunting or lengthy ? Well with our easy to use library in Python you can change pretty much EVERY aspect of the phone with editing just a few lines of code.

And for all the geeks out there, you can develop your OWN APPS. Yes, with the PiTalk, you can insert your own apps developed on Python to better customize your phone or edit the apps already pre-installed in the software to suit your needs.

These are all but a few examples of the things that you can do to make PiTalk truly your own smartphone.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

With the PiTalk, you are in control.

Risks and challenges

This product is still in it's infancy and while we've tried to accommodate everyone by giving more and more features, we know that there will be somethings that we haven't done or some features that the users won't like.
But that is not something that will hold us back. With continuous support and feedback from our backers, we can continually evolve the PiTalk to give our backers a gadget worthy of their trust.
