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

Lots of us have plants, have you ever gone on vacation and come back to this?

 Well, you don't have to go through that anymore, with the new Compel One Smart Plant Pot. The pot comes equipped with: 

  • Grow lights
  • Watering/feeding tube
  • Water reservoir
  • Automatic scheduling
  • Always connected and free software updates

With our new Smart Plant Pot, you can care for your plants whether you are sitting right next to them or in another country. 

Now when you take your vacation you can come back home to this!

 There are still some things required for us to make this project a reality. First, we need to create a production prototype and complete the software that runs on the Smart Plant Pot itself, create a phone application and complete the scheduling website. Next, we will need to find a company to manufacture the plastic parts. And finally, we will need to order enough parts to build at least 20 pots. 

Feel free to ask any additional questions that you might have.

Risks and challenges

Manufacturing is the biggest hurdle we have currently. We need to find a company that can manufacture the plastic parts at a reasonable price.
