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

The Green Plantern is only the first step towards our goal of changing the way in which we think about the food that we eat. 

We strongly believe that aeroponics is the way of the future for agriculture. But how can we take such a seemingly industrial concept, and condense it down to a product that fits in your very own household? Moreover, how do we push the limits of balancing functional with intuitive? The Green Plantern is our first attempt at answering these questions. 

Through your help, we hope to generate the funds necessary to refine our product through future iterations of our AIRO line. Through each new iteration, we seek to continue improving our flagship, while maintaining our philosophy of simplicity and functionality. 

The end goal for our product is to be a catalyst for change. We see a future in which every body, regardless of their background, has access to fresh, healthy alternatives to the cheap fast-foods of yesterday. A new revolution is upon us. We hope to be the AIRO that carves the path to this future. Are you ready to grow with us?

Risks and challenges

We are a small team of undergrad students. Although we will strive and do our best to deliver according to our promised dates, we acknowledge that this may be limited by conflicting schedules drawn from our schoolwork.
