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.

JUNO’s SMD LED
lighting is totally revolutionary and unconventional. What is it? An SMD LED Module (surface-mount device light-emitting diode module) is a type of LED module that uses surface-mount technology (SMT) to mount LED chips on printed circuit boards (PCB).
As simple as the JUNO Smart Mirror is to use, with all the controls you need at the tip of your fingers, the JUNO app can give you even more control.
Here are all the goodies we have in store for you on the JUNO app:
Choose a specific hue/light warmth. Use the on-app mirror to adjust for the mirror's specific light warmth
Save your favorite light settings. Bookmark and quickly access your favorite settings.
Photo filtering. Perfect your selfie look by pairing your photo with filter to match. Plus, turn on the selfie right light to make sure you're shining in the light perfected just for you.
Reading light. Choose how bright you want your reading light to be directly on-screen.
Note: The app is currently still in development and we plan on having a completed app by the time your JUNO smart mirrors ship!

Risks and challenges
Like all Kickstarter projects, we will face certain risks and challenges in delivering this product at the quality we demand of ourselves. However, the JUNO team has taken steps to make sure that we mitigate these risks as much as possible for our backers and community
We have already gone through several rounds of prototyping and have secured our supply chain. Our manufacturer is ready to help produce the JUNO mirrors at scale as soon as we meet our minimum order quantity.
Despite our careful planning, there are risks that are inherent to any project. We've identified and outlined the following key risks to our project below:
There can always be things that happen on a factory line -- which is why we've spent months upfront identifying and interviewing manufacturers with expertise in the mirror/lighting space.
SUPPLY CHAIN AND LOGISTICS
Related to the above, many campaigns experience challenges when scaling from prototyping to production. Since we have chosen factories who have extensive experience in bringing consumer products like the JUNO Mirror to market, we are confident that we can minimize any delays that may occur during this process.
While the mirror functions independently without any extra tools, phones or mumbo jumbo, the JUNO app can help make your mirror that much smarter. We are currently on track to complete app development by the time the first mirrors ship (February 2017) but there may be delays as we go through the app approval process etc.
