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.

About

I have a "Almost Autonomous Lawnmower" it's almost autonomous because you still have to control it. That will be coming soon, I hope. But, for now, I believe this will really make peoples lives much more enjoyable. With this product, almost anyone can mow their yard now. Are you handicapped? in a wheel chair? Is it just too hot out today? or are you a gamer and just love to have a remote in your hands? What about the mass majority who are just plain tired of giving our hard earned money to rich Texas oil tycoons or to foreign governments for petroleum. This Lawnmower solves all of those issues, and it is fun too. 

 All you need to do is turn the RC on, and drive the mower out of the charging housing, into your yard and hit the button to engage the blade and you can see where it is going via any computer, tablet or smartphone on the premise. You can adjust many of the settings of the on board camera, you can even record the video, and send it via email to your dad as proof that you mowed the yard today.

 I am currently working on another almost autonomous project, so stay tuned here for that project. I assure you, you will love it as much as this one. I hope..

Risks and challenges

The only problem that I am currently working through on this project, the on board camera is a bit flaky at times. I am in the process of building a bigger antenna for the raspberry pi3, as the built in wifi on that is pretty weak. I have also been using cell signal with some success.
