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.

Connects your home. Connects your family. 

Septaer is designed to be Artificial Intelligence for the people, by the people. It is the only smart device product on the market that has a viewable-from-all-sides display topped with a whole-room-video-conferencing camera.

An eye-catching centerpiece for family and home entertainment. 

Septaer is designed to be viewed from any side with its omni-directional display technology, and has large high-end speakers to let users control room ambiance and environmental lighting according to a user's mood. Septaer will offer the current smart speaker A.I. capabilities of an Alexa, Google Home or Cortana, as well as Septaer-to-Septaer, Septaer-to-mobile/computer full room video conferencing, entertainment and sharing of user-created interactive characters and content.

Full Room Video Conferencing

Two cameras each covering more than 180° internally stitch the video feed in real time. The result is a camera, with no moving parts, that can cover the entire room. Nobody has to crowd around a camera to fit on a video conference screen. You can talk to everyone sitting in a living room, around a dinner table, or a conference table. Even when calling a Septaer from a different type of device, users are able to audio-visually communicate from any where in the room. If both users have Septaer, full room to room communication is possible.

Sophisticated A.I. Chat with Multiple Personas

The A.I. voice in Septaer was designed with natural conversation as a first priority. Most other A.I. chat platforms are task oriented first. This makes their conversation feel very utilitarian and unnatural. Our aim with Septaer is not just to accomplish a task but to engage and entertain.

Septaer’s audio is also based around personas. These are not simply modulations making the voice sound different. The types of responses can be different in each persona and each persona will evolve as you talk to Septaer. Eventually Septaer will have unique and personal responses to you and your family.

Set up ambiance with room-filling audio and visual effects. It becomes a fish tank, fireplace, lava lamp, beach scene, rain-forest or starry night - the possibilities are endless! Just wake Septaer up with a voice command, and it delivers all the typical voice-based home utility, security, and entertainment functions you would expect from the leading AI smart devices.

Many voice interactive smart speakers were only utility based, and were being used to monetize their users through selling them products or service. This is like having your home open to every door-to-door salesman in the neighborhood. Instead, the A.I. in Septaer is about enhancing a household through focusing on "Conversational A.I." enhanced by mood and ambiance setting audio-visuals, entertaining families with games, or educating anyone interested in learning something without having to log in to their computer.
