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.

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.
