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.

About

Marvoto Fetus Camera M1 is a product that uses ultrasound technology. Mom-to-be can use it to take pictures and videos for baby in the belly. No matter at home or outside, pregnant mothers can see the baby anywhere and anytime. Marvoto M1 is composed of camera device and mobile application.The device is integrated with ultrasonic transducer, image data acquisition and processing system, wireless WiFi transmission module etc. Simply, it’s a hand-held intelligent ultrasound imaging system. M1 works with mobile application through WiFi,the 3D images will be presented on mobile device.

Marvoto is extraordinary for its compact design, ease of use, intelligent imaging and beautification. The greatest highlight of Marvoto is its proprietary 3D fetal imaging technology driven by our commitment to present the smiling baby to the expectant parents before delivery.

M1 is different from traditional ultrasound products. With its compact design, easy to use, intelligent imaging and beautification, it makes M1 extraordinary. The most highlighted technology of M1 is its proprietary 3D fetal imaging technology driven by our commitment to present the smiling baby to the expectant parents.

Thanks to our tremendous R&D team, we have successfully developed the proprietary 3D fetal imaging technology and applied it to M1. Through this technology, expectant mothers are now able to see and record every movement of their baby inside the uterus and “interact” with it “face to face”.

As M1 is compact and portable, it can be used at any time anywhere. With Marvoto M1, expectant mothers have no worry of missing any moments of their baby’s growth no matter where they are.

Free of complicated buttons and operations, M1 captures every smile of the fetus through easy APP.

 You may have been used to the widely popular beauty cameras, yet unfamiliar with Marvoto. It can beautify the photos of your baby inside your uterus, and give your baby the most precious and the first gift.

The core components to achieve 3D image data The motor inside the probe drives the acoustic probe to swing back and forth, obtaining the continuous multi-frame 2D images. The probe adopts "flexible transmission" and "linear speed reduction" technologies to ensure the consistency of the probe swing and the output imaging being stable and continuous. Independent developed 3D imaging algorithm Carrying high-speed 4D module chip enabling fast 3D image output (<3s) Default parameter settings that simplify the user operation The imaging system has pre-stored several parameter settings before delivery to simplify the operation as much as possible.

Safe and environmental ABS resin protection shell No toxicity, no smell We have already considered the safety of mother and baby from the moment when you touch the product.

The ultrasound technology-based Marvoto is free of any ionizing radiation and light radiation, and compliant with EMC test. The safe and eco-friendly ABS housing is adopted. With an award-winning appearance design, Marvoto has a silky smooth and finely crafted handle that you want to hold in your hand all the time.

The safety of pregnant women and fetuses are our greatest concern! The ultrasound technology-based M1 is free of any ionizing and light radiation, in compliance with EMC test. Moreover, the housing is made by safe and Eco-friendly ABS, it is no smell and non-toxic. With an award-winning appearance design, M1 has a silky smooth and finely crafted handle that you want to hold in your hand all the time.

High quality 3D imaging allows you to keep track of a growing baby. The tiny hands waving at you, the tiny kicking legs…Every moment is a pleasant surprise from Marvoto.

Marvoto M1 has been honored with a coveted Good Design Award in 2017. The accolades underscore the appealing of M1’s design expression on a smooth, round host and an L-shaped handle. As well as the user-friendly photo shooting key is set near the right thumb for easy operation.

Ultrasound has an important parameter, called sound intensity. It refers to the ultrasound energy of a sound beam in a unit of time and area. If the ultrasound energy is too high, it may cause biological effects (such as thermal or mechanical effect) which is harmful to human body. Therefore, ultrasound energy must be strictly controlled when it use for human body. M1 strictly follows the acoustic output requirements and standards of medical ultrasound equipment, as well as ALARA principle (i.e., As Low As Reasonably Achievable”, the lower the incident sound intensity, the better), the acoustic output is as low as 11.28 mW / cm2.According to data published by the American Institute of Ultrasound Medicine (AIUM), all ultrasound-induced adverse biological effects occur at very high dose levels. Ultrasound is very safe as long as the dose of acoustic output is controlled.

The ultrasound technology-based M1 is free of any ionizing radiation and light radiation, in compliance with EMC test and CE approved.

Adopting the latest high-sped WiFi chip instead of conventional cables, the images and videos are instantly accessible. Our 4D imaging technology helps record every smile of the baby and create the most precious images in life! Expectant mothers can now share images of their baby on the social media and embrace a great mood from all the likes.

M1 has one WiFi connection mode—hot spot mode (connect to mobile device only).

A local album and a cloud album are provided. You may view the photos taken in the local album and check out the photos in the cloud album after beautified via cloud service.

In addition to picture taking, video recording is also available. Simply click the video button to record the movements of the baby.

With M1, you may show your baby to the world on Facebook, Twitter and other social medias, and share your joy and happiness as a mom-to-be!

Recently, celebrities shares their unborn baby photos on the Internet. An increasing number of expectant mothers taking 3D ultrasound photos to get a glimpse of the cute face of their baby.

Peoples have taken 3D ultrasound photo: mom-to-be sometimes have to wait 1 to 2 months for a 3D ultrasound photography appointment. It is often a long queue on the day of the appointment, and the doctor will allow the expectant mothers to see the 3D ultrasound image for half an hour at most. Sometimes it only can show the side face of the baby, mom-to-be only can wait to see the full face in the next visit. Why don't we have a fetus camera which can be use to see our baby at home at any time? 

To see the baby inside the belly: the cute smiling face, the tiny hands, the tiny feet and the little butt of the baby. 

To see whenever you like: You can watch the baby during daytime, nighttime, or when the baby kicks or burps. Capture all the beautiful moments. 

To see wherever you like: You can watch the baby in the bed, on a chair, at home, in the office, when you are on vacation, alone or with family or friends. 

For the sake of safety, you can check how the hands and toes grow or a nuchal cord (umbilical cord around fetal neck) in the photos as a reference.

I am in the week 23 of my pregnancy. For me, a 3D ultrasound camera was indeed a novelty. M1 was very easy to operate as I just spent few minutes to lean how to use it after reading the user manual. Following the instruction, I downloaded the app to my mobile phone and completed the registration, then connect M1 with my phone. When the devices were ready, I applied the coupling gel provided by the Manufacturer on my belly. I got the black and white cross-section image. I moved the M1 to find the baby, then I saw the tiny head of my baby and I was so excited and happy. When I got the best position, I clicked the button to take photo and a cute face of my baby appeared.
