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.

Have you ever wanted to check on your pet’s location and health while at work? Have you ever lost your pet? Do you forget to get your pet their medications? Have trouble keeping them in the yard? 

Have you every felt overwhelmed by the ever-expanding technology for pet care? Those high prices add up to be quite expensive.

For that reason, we've created an all-in-one solution to pet care:

 Scollar functionality is expanded through modules, which are easily inserted and then seamlessly integrate with the collar. In the case of the perimeter barrier module you can assign a beacon disc as a barrier to keep your pet off of the kitchen counter or keep them away from an other pet's food bowl.

The Scollar Mini has crowdsourced GPS tracking technology to find your lost pet in your neighborhood or many miles away.

You can also ensure flea/tick treatments are up to date, and if medications have been administered by simply tapping on the collar screen.

The LED lights on the collar make the pet visible at night and can help you find the collar if it breaks away from your cat or dog. The LEDs and beeper alert you to a notification on the collar. These notifications also show up on your phone.

The battery can be charged without removing the collar from your pet. Simply attach the portable magnetic charging block to the bottom of the collar and in an hour the collar is fully charged. The portable battery charger can provide two full collar charges. With the added Base Station, the collar battery can last up to 30 days.

 

 

 "...this collar does it all when it comes to your pet." - The Gadget Flow

 

The Scollar app allows you to train your pet through videos that you can favorite, rate and rank. Customize your training feed with the highest ranked videos; poop on the ones you never want to see in your feed again.

Never lose your pet again. Set up a home area for your pet and get an alert any time they wander outside of it. The app supports tracking of multiple pets at once and even allows you to keep track of them while you are away with the Base Station connected to your WiFi!

With how busy we are its easy to forget the simplest of things. The Scollar app is customized by you to remind you to feed your pets. So the next time they come begging for food, you can simply check the collar and know if they have been fed.

A healthy pet is a happy pet. The Scollar app allows you to set reminders so you won't forget or miss getting you pet their medications. No more scratching at 3am!

The Scollar Mini is built on an open hardware and software platform, meaning independent developers are always working to improve the product and adding additional functionality. Since the Scollar is open source it is always expanding and making life easier for you and your pets.
