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.
The CARBON is a wireless, rechargeable, well-insulated tumbler that is capable of bringing any liquid to boil. Not only that, but the AI-powered CARBON can maintain the temperature of your drink at the temperature you want it at all day long. That's because the CARBON is equipped with a robust temperature sensor, ensuring your drink is at the perfect temperature at the touch of a button.
We all want to drink a cup of hot coffee or tea on the road, but there is no existing portable and compact tumbler that is capable of heating up our drinks while maintaining at a drinkable temperature.
That’s why we started CARBON with a simple idea: The ability to enjoy a sip of hot drink anywhere, anytime.
The CARBON is designed to solve the biggest consumer pain points, so there are no more excuses for room temperature drinks and icy-cold water in the winter.
Embedded in the CARBON is a silent heating element which is capable of bringing your drink to boil in just 6 minutes. Combined with a waterproof construction that prevents electricity leaks, the CARBON is safe to use, meeting all international safety regulations.
The CARBON could be used as a normal tumbler because it is constructed out of food grade 304 Stainless Steel alloy (GB9684-2011 international standard). Thus, maintaining the temperature of liquid all day long.
With a due layer vacuum shell construction, heat burns will never be a thing. – Because your safety is always our priority.
All is under control, thanks to this little guy.
The CARBON is equipped with an easy to use, portable charging solution.
Whether you’re on the trail, skiing, or on a business trip, you know that having access to hot drinks helps you to get through the day or the cold freezing winter. So, don’t think twice about whether you want a hot drink or not, the CARBON will do just that for you with a push of a button.

Risks and challenges
Each design has been tested using full-scale prototypes. The product passes our high standards without compromising on weight or style. We have passed our prototype and testing stage successfully, and we are confidently entering the mass production stage.
We take full responsibility for our work and take it super seriously, if we need to delay, we let you know. We are confident in our ability to give you the product we advertise and stand behind it. With any change along the way, we communicate and coordinate with our backers.
In order to process all our orders smoothly, we will send our backers survey immediately after our campaign ends and carefully organize all our orders into batches. Early birds will be delivered first, following with other Kickstarter orders and post-campaign orders.
No matter what, we promise to work our hardest to meet the expectations of every backer!
