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.
Petpresso helps you take care of your cat
What is Petpresso?
Petpresso is the first Smart Cat Care Device, designed and created to help you take care of your cat's health and wellness.
How does Petpresso work?
You may think that Petpresso is just another automatic feeder reaching the market:
Petpresso is a Smart Device that uses technology to help you notice when your cat's not feeling well by monitoring his eating and drinking habits.
Petpresso uses a microcontroller and WIFI module that connects to a cloud server and an App from where you can manage your Petpresso device, and monitor your cat.
Petpresso's patented system is unique: it's the only device with weighting sensors under the feeding and drinking plates.
Thanks to these sensors, Petpresso monitors what your cat eats and drinks in real time. Using the feeding and drinking data, Petpresso establishes a statistical model about your cat habits, and provides notifications and alerts when it detects some unusual feeding or drinking behaviour, allowing you to check if there is any problem with your cat's health in time.
Petpresso helps you take care of your cat

Petpresso is VET APPROVED!
We work together with Germán Muñoz, from Kato Feline Clinic, and other feline experts, to help us develop the best equipment and monitor features for your cat's health and wellness!

Meet Puki and Nala, the kitties who inspired Petpresso!
When Javi (inventor and founder) found the two stray kittens and decided to adopt them and take care of them, he knew he needed something else to take care of Puki, since he started gaining a lot of weight. He found many food feeders, but none of them was exactly what he needed to make sure he could really take good care of his kitties! And that's how the idea of Petpresso begun!
Our Team is 100% devoted catlovers; it is formed by professionals in engineering, advertising, communication, graphic design, veterinary and programming, always eager and willing to give the best of them to meet your expectations.
The Beta Testers Experience!
For 3 weeks, our beta testers Brittany, Javier, María Jesús, Rocío, Germán, Bárbara and Rubén, had the chance to try be the first ones to test Petpresso. They tested the device and app, and we had awesome useful feed back from them!
Meet the kitties!
And some of their humans with our team!
Thank you all so much for being part of Petpresso and helping us making it an even better device!

Risks and challenges
Petpresso combines existing technology to achieve an innovative and robust product, making the developmental risks low; and our team owns large experience working with these technologies. Plus, we have already developed different working prototypes, which have been tested and performed extremely well, providing us with feasibility of the product; especially the last prototype version, tested with several cats and families beta testers. Also, we have manufacturing, operations, and logistics set up and ready to go. The funding raised on Kickstarter will be used for production and manufacturing of the First Smart Care Device for Cats.
However, risks are inherent to any business, and especially in the fields of innovation and technology. Therefore, the risks and contingencies foreseen are:
MANUFACTURING: Creating the tooling to manufacture a product of this size is expensive and requires expert knowledge to get it right. There is typically a 60 day lead time to create the molds for a product of this size and this is where delays could occur. To minimize that possibility we're working with tooling manufacturers partners with a track record for prompt quality.
PRODUCT ADJUSTMENTS: When Petpresso gets geared up for production, there will likely be some minor adjustments to improve the final product. Pre-production prototypes are made to test and refine the product and allow us to incorporate our adjustments and those suggested by experienced manufacturing partners. These will always be for the benefit of you, the consumer, and we will let you know exactly how and why any are made.
CERTIFICATION: We will certificate the product according to main standards in terms of safety, EMC and reliability. Although the design is made to fulfill these standards, minor adjustments can be found.
FULFILLMENT: Sometimes things go awry that can’t be planned for: a supplier misses a deadline, a machine breaks down, or a shipment gets lost. Those things could cause a delay. To minimize the possibility of manufacturing setbacks we will enter the manufacturing stage with at least one back-up supplier for each component pre-located and my product commercialization experts will help ensure smooth sailing from our suppliers and factories.
We will be working with manufacturers who have years of experience delivering excellent products in tremendous quantities. There will no doubt be some surprises along the road, but any obstacle will be addressed by combining our internal knowledge with external expertise, and an overall goal of making the best possible product for you.
Any pledge amount brings us one step closer to our goal. Help us make a Better World for Cats by clicking the ‘Back This Project’ button at the top of the page, or by helping us spread the word by sharing our page.
Your name will appear on the credits, you will have acces to an exclusive FB group, you will participate in all the product definition surveys and provide your ideas and we will publish a post about your cat.
