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.

For those who knew the first version of

Gyroscope Sensor V2 for FPV Head Tracking, Robotics and More

                                    Here is the new Iota V2!

New V2 version
New V2 version

Even more perfect for FPV head tracking, robotics, movement control and why not video games. Based on ATmega328P microcontroller, the 3 axis motion sensor gyroscope allows you to track the movement of the head or arm and replicate it to servos. For Do It Yourself (DIY) home project lover who dreams of doing a head tracking system FPV themselves cheaply. 

This system has been specially designed for DIY in electronics or robotics for students to explore electronics or who want their own system, but are less comfortable with advanced programming of accelerometers. You can use one or more axes (X, Y, Z) independently. According to your needs.

New in V2:

  • Lighter. Only 4 grams!
  • Smaller. Only 2,5 cm x 2,5 cm (1" x 1")
  • Cheaper! Look at rewards starting at only $18 USD!!
  • PPM output possibility for RC remote control
Only 1 inch x 1 inch size (2,5 cm x 2,5 cm)
Only 1 inch x 1 inch size (2,5 cm x 2,5 cm)

New feature - Now with PPM output signal 

You can connect the servos directly on the module or use the PPM output to connect into the training port of your RC remote control.

 Project is still in progress

At this moment, I can't show you a fully functional prototype. A small batch of PCB (about 150 pcs) is now in manufacturing process. It is for final prototype and the first batch reward.

Risks and challenges

The main challenge of this project was to make it the smallest possible so that fit in most uses. No more use of prefabricated Arduino cards was also a challenge and give more professional product. The option PPM was also a good dare of programming.
