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.
Demonstrates the functionality of the final product, but looks different.
Looks like the final product, but is not functional.
Appearance and function match the final product, but is made with different manufacturing methods.
Appearance, function, and manufacturing methods match the final product.
MOAI takes your aquarium to next level by adding a robot helps keep your fishtank clean, while also allowing users to capture and share aquarium wonders with friends.
You can’t always be around to see what’s happening in your aquarium. With MOAI, you don’t have to be. Just connect it to home WiFi and explore your tank live in beautiful HD.
Explore your aquarium with 24/7 live streaming, from anywhere.
Bookmark your favorite positions and return to them at the tap of a button.
Select Auto-Cruise to explore the area horizontally or cruise your bookmarks.
Capture and share your aquarium wonders with friends.
MOAI prevents algae from building up on aquarium glass, keeps your tank clean and healthy.
Start, stop and schedule cleaning sessions when convenient for you.
The MOAI Robot will go back to its home base to re-dock when it needs to charge or is finished cleaning.
MOAI Mobile App
The MOAI mobile app allows you to control and monitor your robot remotely using a smartphone or tablet device – at home, or on the move.
For the novice or the experienced hobbyists, the MOAI is designed to enhance the natural beauty of aquascape even amidst a busy urban lifestyle.
The MOAI has a ultrasound navigation system so it knows where it is on aquarium and where it has already cleaned.
It uses ultrasound sensors to map its way around the aquarium. You can set cleaning area above sand bed with mobile app to prevent sand stuck and scratches.
Explore MOAI in beautiful 3D
You can set it up in a few minutes.
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.
Evolution of MOAI
Risks and challenges
We have already complete industrial design, mechanical design and electronic design in the past two years. Will focus on software development after crowdfunding campaign. We welcome your involvement in the continuing development. Your feedback will help us achieve better user experience.
Manufacturing and Supply Chain:
Design for manufacturing is throughout our development process.
Our mentors in the field of manufacturing and our supply chain partners will help next stage tooling/sourcing/testing/certification on schedule and support us reach our goals.
We will continue to work hard to get MOAI robots onto your tanks!
