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.

Prototype Gallery

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

Based on the years of Raspberry Pi and IOT experences, here we introduce 3 out-of-the-box kits which explore full potential of Raspberry Pi!

IOT Weather Kit:

Learn how to program with python and interact with different sensors with this Kit. The kit contains all the necessary hardware and software to build your own indoor Air quality monitor with Carbon Dioxide, Total Volatile Organic Compounds, Pressure , Humidity and Temperature readings. Moreover, you will learn about all the basics of Raspberry Pi & Python programming.

Risks and challenges

As you can see from the video and product demos, the prototype is pretty much working and completed state. Our engineers and developers are very confident in delivering the product on time with satisfaction.

More importantly, our previous projects have shown that we are well-known for delivering on-time with satisfied backers

Possible Risks of delay:
- Unexpected manufacturing problems during initial production. We will ensure that they are found as early as possible to minimize delays
