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.

SMOKO loves bringing joy to your everyday living with fun, functional products that are as unique as you. We couldn't be more excited to introduce Milo, a kawaii Corgi reincarnated as a diffuser. 

Like many folks, we really look forward to unwinding when we get home and getting a good night's rest before a brand new day. That's why we’ve taken our popular diffuser design and made it even better.   

This little diffuser will work to humidify the air for a good six hours and is equipped with an auto shut-off mode so you can fully enjoy your R&R. Amp up your relaxation by adding your own favorite essential oils (our go-to scent is lavender!).

FEATURES  

  • Mist Mode: 6 hours running time until water runs out. 
  • 60 & 120 minute timer or 30 sec toggle for 6 hours of use. 
  • We’ve upgraded the diffusers from a 5v to a 12v motor, so they can diffuse more and cover a larger area.  
  • Can now be used with either tap water or filtered water. 
  • Improved cap design makes the diffusers easier to open & refill. And for all the unicorn lovers out there, we've upgraded our original Elodie Unicorn Diffuser with the same great features.

But, of course, Milo & Elodie don't stop there. In true magical fashion, our diffusers have several different LED color options to help you set the mood.   

Milo & Elodie work hard so you can get the rest you deserve. We hope their presence leaves you feeling refreshed! And how adorable are they?! When not in use they still manage to bring kawaii cuteness to your space, making these diffusers as decorative as they are functional.
