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.

These photos and videos provide a detailed look at this project’s development.

Creoqode Nova is an Arduino-based artificial intelligence robot.

Nova comes as an all-inclusive do-it-yourself kit allowing users to build their own artificial intelligence robot and to practice their coding and engineering skills by controlling it in various ways.

Nova is a great kit to learn about coding, electronics and many other engineering concepts including computer vision, image processing, kinematics and control theory. 

Nova can recognise and track faces, identify colours, measure distances and move accordingly in 5 different axis’, or it can simply be controlled with the joysticks in the kit.

Nova is an open-source project. Many sensors and gadgets can be connected to customise Nova and to add new functionalities, such as voice recognition, target shooting or even mobility. Users can add speakers, microphone, Bluetooth and Wifi modules, or even add wheels underneath so that Nova can follow them while they walk around. The only limit is your imagination.

Creoqode Mini Mega development board is fully compatible with the Arduino Software and offers the same technical specs as an Arduino Mega with the advantage of being extremely compact. Nova Servo Shield provides quick connection between servo motors and Mini Mega while providing easy access to the unoccupied digital and analog input/output pins. Nova Joystick has two thumb joysticks consisting of 4 potentiometers and 2 switches in total.  

 Creoqode Nova is compatible with Windows, Mac OS and Linux, and it can be programmed with the Arduino Software & Processing (IDE). Users will easily adapt to the artificial intelligence robot regardless of their level of experience. Both new learners and experienced programmers will start controlling Nova by coding in just a couple of hours. Tutorials and educational guides are provided through Qode Share to make users' experience smoother and more fun.  

Nova is an entertaining and easy way to learn for new beginners, and an unrestricted way to exercise their knowledge for the pros.  

As Creoqode, our aim is to bridge the gap between hardware and software education. Prior to getting into coding, we want our users to understand the working principles and hardware fundamentals of a device by building it. A good balance between hardware and software knowledge provides a comprehensive understanding about devices. Nova has been developed with this ideology in mind, offering an exciting opportunity for users to improve their hardware and coding skills by building and programming an artificial intelligence robot.

Risks and challenges

As Creoqode, Nova is our second Kickstarter project after 2048, the DIY game console which was launched last year. We are in the market for more than a year now and gained a valuable experience about manufacturing, packing, customer service and international shipping. We are already in touch with manufacturers for Nova and arranged the production. Nova can get into production straight after the funds are received. As the founder of Creoqode, I strongly believe that risks involved for on time delivery of Nova will be extremely unlikely.

However, it would be fair to note that we will be shipping the product globally, and the taxation, customs duties and other regulations might be different across some countries which might cause some minor delays. However, Creoqode team has extensively researched global delivery of Nova in order to preempt any challenges we may face. Additionally, we have set the delivery date as May 2018 leaving us plenty of time to ensure on-time delivery.

Additionally, we will be putting all our effort to prepare detailed and easy to follow tutorials for hardware, assembly and coding. However, after the delivery of Nova, some users might still have questions regarding technical aspects of the product or might experience some issues, which Creoqode help desk formed of 3 programmers and 2 electrical engineers will be able to answer immediately. We are all prepared for you to have an exciting and smooth experience with Nova.
