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.

FOOD WASTE: IT HAPPENS TO EVERYONE

Whether your mayo is 3 months past expiration or your leftovers from a week ago have turned into a science experiment, we aren't very good at keeping track of our food.

Food waste is a huge problem. FreshFridge can help.

FreshFridge is a kitchen ecosystem that combines all of the major elements of food storage and management in your household:

  • Central Hub to organize, track, and monitor all of your shopping lists, food inventory, recipes, and more
  • Connected Food Containers to measure temperature, give expiration reminders, and keep your food fresh
  • Smart Sensors to improve the internal efficiency and quality of your refrigerator by creating temperature zones
  • Cloud-Based Mobile App (iOS & Android) to have peace of mind and give you control over your FreshFridge anytime, anywhere.

Risks and challenges

Supply Chain and Manufacturing:
To create FreshFridge, we are working with Arrow Electronics to verify our supply chain, and will work primarily with a few highly skilled manufacturers from all over the US, while building up our own manufacturing capabilities.

There is always the possibility that a material or component is out of stock making for delays. We have built this potential issue into our initial timeline and are confident that it will not be a problem since we have back-up suppliers as well.

Certification:
In addition to working with Arrow Electronics, we have a software partnership to expand our Alexa capabilities. Once we have created our first Alpha Units we will submit FreshFridge to the Amazon Alexa team and they will check it to make sure that it meets their privacy, functionality and safety standards.

Integrations:
We know that integrating FreshFridge into the most popular messaging and smart devices is extremely important to making your life more streamlined. Our development timeline includes sufficient time to test and retest each individual integration for quality and reliability before pulling it into the FreshFridge app.
