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.

Our mission is to equip our audiences with the intelligence to understand and contribute to a world shaped by technology. Our audience is anyone, anywhere, who believes that technology can solve hard problems, grow prosperity, and expand human possibilities.

"This way of presenting electronic components could be incredibly useful for high schools and electronics kits targeted at kids and young adults." - Max Maxfield, Editor of All Things Fun & Interesting (EETimes)

"If you sometimes struggle with fiddly electronic components you might be interested in a new system which has been created by iv-Robotics to make prototyping and learning electronics even easier and more rewarding." - Julian Horsey (Geeky-Gadgets)

"Now this is a cool idea. This Kickstarter provides common resistor and capacitor values in a breadboard friendly format. No more long dangly resistor and LED leads anymore. I might back this one, looks good." -

Na Kickstarteru běží velice zajímavý projekt od skupiny iv-Robotics, která si dala za cíl značně zjednodušit a urychlit prototypování nových obvodů. Je určený všem DIY nadšencům a kutilům po celém světě. Projekt chce zajistit, abyste měli všechny potřebné rezistory a kondenzátory po ruce a zároveň jste se v nich neztratili. - (Zbyšek Voda)

To reduce the number of legs and make it easier for beginner, iv-Robotics has decided to create small boards with SMT resistors, capacitors and LEDs instead with markings to solve those small issues. - CNXSoft – Embedded Systems News

We invented, designed, produced and tested a limited batch of the product, which are unique and previously unseen in the history of tech. We spent two months on the testing these elements, and concluded the following: iResistor, iCapacitor and iLed components are ideally suited for all types of microcontrollers (Arduino, Raspberry Pi, ST Nucleo, Teensy, Netduino, Discovery, BeagleBone-Black, Tower System, Xplained etc.) for use with a Breadboard.











 p.s. Each diode already has its own resistor


When you create a project, a lot of time is spent on selecting the correct resistor or capacitor value. Our modules have a convenient form and clear marking.With clever industrial design, short circuit is now a thing of the past. 


The Story of this miracle began with Alex. Our friend Alex quickly learned to draw sketches and solder circuits, but adding the right components on the Breadboard was challenging.  

One sunny day she asked us for help. We tried to find well designed, clearly marked components to ease her pain, but nothing was around. Then, we teamed up and decided to make our own. The result is iResistor, iCapacitor and iLed.


We are a group of young, inventive, energetic and nerdy (aren’t we all?) DIY developers who aim to make the world a better place for people like you and us.



We have no marketing people, no marketing budget, and we don't use any dirty tricks to get people's attention - we just rely on word of mouth - so please help us spread the word!




 iv-Robotics’ smart electrical components help bridge students to the tech world. The iResistors, iCapacitor and iLed assist makers, hobbyist and students in learning, and to develop and invent things.

Now we need your support, so we can make a big batch of new, user-friendly iResistor, iCapacitor and iLed. We want to finish production before New Year and start fulfilling requests in January 2017.


 In February we will have resellers set up with stock, to make iResistor, iCapacitor and iLed available for everyone. Resellers need to take a cut, so if you act now, you will get the best offer directly from us. Just $10 each. Get them all with this once in a lifetime offer. We welcome any support.

The funds will be used for large scale manufacturing. Here is a breakdown of the manufacturing process:

  • PCB Fabrication 
  • Test Labor 
  • Packaging 
  • Shipping

 Design, Functional Prototypes and Testing are done

  • Schematic design is done. 
  • Engineering design review is done. 
  • Layout is done. 
  • Prototyping is done. 
  • Electronic design reviews are done. 
  • Field Range testing is done.

Our Contract Manufacturer is ready
We have a very reliable, high-quality, contract manufacturer already in place and ready to start production.

Manufacturing Plan

  • Place order for parts. 
  • Place order for PCBs.  
  • Pick and place automated assembly. 
  • Hand soldering the connectors. 
  • Build test jigs for the production line. 
  • Full production test. 
  • Quality Control. 
  • Quality Assurance. 
  • Packaging.
  • Shipping.
  • Place order for solder paste stencil. 

Production Timetable and Shipping

  • PCB Fabrication (2 weeks) 
  • Order Materials (No time offset, done while waiting on PCBs.) 
  • Hand Assembly (2 weeks) 
  • Test, Quality Control, Packaging (1 week) 
  • Shipping (1 week)

Our product is interesting for all retailers of electrical components.
For store owners and distributors we have a special offer only now!


When buying 90 or more pieces, сustom logo on package is offered at no additional cost.
When buying 450 or more pieces, custom product labeling is offered at no additional cost.

Pledge now and bring your creative ideas to life!

Thank you and happy inventing!

Risks and challenges

We will keep you informed of our progress and update you on any unforeseen challenges that arise.

We have an established supply chain so we are confident that we will be able deliver on our rewards. However, you never know what may cause delays with manufacturing (component shortages, national holidays, etc), so while we may not be able to promise 100% accuracy on delivery dates, we promise complete transparency. We are confident that we'll be able to keep our backers informed and up-to-date on our progress.
