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.
Based on the success of our previous project - Wireless HMI , we felt that there is a need to promote not just the product but how to build projects using our product. Therefore, we have built this toolkit.
The toolkit includes the necessary hardware, code and guide to build these projects. A color printed guide book, published by Nanomesher, is included.
For each of the projects, you can choose to build in 2 ways. The code are exactly the same in either way.
The traditional way - using the Wemos D1 dev board / breadboard and jumper wires
The easy way - just plug the components onto the Nanomesher HMI development board
We have specifically designed the Nanomesher HMI development board to fit our selected sensors and displays. The aim is for you to spend the least amount of time fiddling with wires and soldering and to maximize the learning and building of the software's functionality.
Integration with Services
Building the hardware is just one aspect of this toolkit. The guide also demonstrates and teaches how to communicate and integrate with the devices. Examples and codes are included to:
