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.

Real-time Navigation 

The MOAI has a ultrasound navigation system so it knows where it is on aquarium and where it has already cleaned.

 

Adaptive Mapping

We are a team of designers and engineers based in the "Silicon Valley for hardware" Shenzhen. We build MOAI to bring less worry and more fun to aquarium hobbyists worldwide. Thanks to HAX experts and mentors, we have turned MOAI from a creative concept into manufacturing ready prototype. We are excited to bring MOAI to life with the help of crowdfunding.
