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.

Thank You, Backers

We have achieved our primary goal to bring CrowPi into reality. CrowPi is highly spoke of by many customers, especially the people who works on STEAM education. We hope that more people could have an opportunity to know and use CrowPi. Help us spread CrowPi worldwide. 

Every backer will get interesting and useful gift if we reach our stretch goal.

Why do you need CrowPi? 

Before you answer this question, let’s do a simple quiz game. Do you face the problems below? Just say YES or NO.

  • You’re interested in electronics or Raspberry Pi, but you have no idea how to start.  
  • You’re passionate about STEM education, but you can’t find useful and easy materials to teach with.  
  • You’re using Raspberry Pi, but you don’t make the most of it. You completed some simple experiments, and you want to explore more projects and dive deeper into the electronics world. 

If you say YES once, CrowPi is born for you. CrowPi will help you solve all the problems mentioned above.  

It used to be hard to complete electronic experiments.

Here comes the easy way. As you know, no matter how difficult the project seems to be, the basic principle is the same. CrowPi can help you master all the fundamental knowledge of how to get started using Raspberry Pi by doing hands-on projects.  

What’s the advantages of CrowPi?

CrowPi has many advantages compared to the traditional ways of DIY electronics. You can start some projects instantly and easily with CrowPi. It's very convenient to carry CrowPi with us because of the neat case and compact layout.

You can also build more complicated proeject all by yourself after you master the fundamental knowledge, for example bluetooth or wife wireless control, face recognition, gesture control and so on.

What can you get?

We set 4 kinds of kit for different customers. No matter if you have one RPI board or not, no matter if you know much about RPI or not, no matter if you want to learn software or hardware, you can always find a suitable reward for your choice.

What's the CrowPi timeline?

We've been working hard for the past half a year to create product which is both easy and professional. After many prototypes, the CrowPi is fully functional and at his final stage of mass production.

Supporting us today and helping us achieve a goal of making everyone's making easier.

Back us today and help us bring CrowPi to life.

 Who made the CrowPi?

CrowPi is created by Elecrow engineers. Elecrow has devoted to the open source hardware industry for years with the goal of “make your making easier”. We have helped thousands of innovators produce custom PCB and PCBA boards. And we've been providing millions of electronic modules for industrial application and STEAM education.  

The idea of CrowPi comes from our years of work in the open source hardware Industry. We've been hoping to invent something that can help people instantly solve computer science, programming and electronics in an easier way, we never stopped trying, testing...and we made it!

Join us to explore the digital and electronic world with CrowPi!

Risks and challenges

Have been working countless days and nights over the past year on planning, designing and prototyping the CrowPi development board, We are really really excited to finally have our first crowdfunding campaign here!

Externally we have experienced suppliers and factories backed up for production, internally we minutely scheduled the sufficient assembly lines and perfect logistics solution making sure CrowPi will be safely delivered to every backer.

Please rest assured we'll keep you informed of any changes about CrowPi. Thank you to every backer for your support, it means a lot!
