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.

These photos and videos provide a detailed look at this project’s development.

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.

Connected Cleaning

Start, stop and schedule cleaning sessions when convenient for you.

Smart Docking

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.

 

Form Follows Function
Form Follows Function

For the novice or the experienced hobbyists, the MOAI is designed to enhance the natural beauty of aquascape even amidst a busy urban lifestyle.

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

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.
