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.

Risks and challenges

Maybe we'll face some problems dealing with the delivery of the rewards but we ensure that with 100% of our goal collected we will be able to deliver them on time.

KIVI is a great investment of our time and resources. We have spent more than two years developing and testing KIVI, putting in long hours because we have a vision that this product can improve and change people's lives. We have spent hours of our time working to get KIVI to finally see the light. However, because we are so passionate about bringing this product to the world, we know that the risk will pay, and the reward will be worth the countless hours.

The challenge is that we lack the capital to bring KIVI closer to people who are in love with design, plants and technology. Crowdfunding is a way to bring KIVI socially to all people who like design, nature and technology at a lower cost.

Tal vez tendremos que hacer frente a algunos problemas relacionados con la entrega de las recompensas, pero nos aseguramos de que con el 100% de nuestra meta recaudada podamos entregarlas todas a tiempo.

KIVI es una gran inversión de nuestro tiempo y recursos. Hemos pasado más de dos años desarrollando y probando KIVI, invirtiendo muchas horas porque creemos que KIVI puede mejorar y cambiar la vida de las personas. Hemos pasado horas de nuestro tiempo trabajando para conseguir que KIVI finalmente vea la luz. Sabemos que todas las horas invertidas darán su fruto pronto.

El desafío es que nos falta el capital para acercar a KIVI a las personas que están enamoradas del diseño, las plantas y la tecnología. El crowdfunding es una manera de llevar KIVI a todas las personas que les gusta el diseño, la naturaleza y la tecnología a un costo menor.
