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.

About this project

Dear Backers,     

The WiserWand is designed for gardeners to easily and efficiently water the root zone of plants, shrubs, and trees without wasting a drop of water on leaves, weeds, dirt, paths, sidewalks, etc.

By watering the root zone, waste due to runoff, evaporation, and wind is eliminated and a high-percentage of the water is accessible to the root hairs. 

BIG BENEFITS

These are 4 benefits of the many benefits. Read them all

Slug Repellent 

The WiserWand waters the roots, not leaves. Guess what? Dry leaves are slug-free! 

Pinpoint Accuracy

Never miss your mark with the "high-efficiency" WiserWand. In this photo Sweet Potatoes are watered through a small hole in the tarp and barely a drop is wasted.

Accessibility

Andrew and his 6 y/o son Aiden, water with ease. Andrew uses a cane and the WiserWand makes watering a breeze. Read Andrew's story.

Versatility & Speed

I take a stroll with Ken as he shows the WiserWands versatility and speed of watering. He has a large garden and used the WiserWand exclusively over the summer of 2016. He said, "watering doesn't feel like a burden and I used 1/3 of the water as the previous summer". 

THE WISERWAND WORKS!

The summer of 2016, 56 gardeners watered their gardens with the WiserWand. These are excerpts from 4 of 17 testimonials

 Zach 

“My dog’s paws aren’t muddy.” When I watered with a soaker hose it would create puddles and our dog would get muddy, even on a sunny day. Then he’d go inside and create a mess. 

Lynne and Vern 

"Watered in half the time, water bill half as much." 

  Annette 

"Loving this tool and feeling Wiser! I am very happy with the WiserWand. Not only am I saving water, I’m saving my landscaping topsoil, which was washing away with the sprinkler." 

Mary 

“Two thumbs up from this gardener.” I’m an avid gardener and I do have a sprinkler system, but I still need to water certain areas and plants by hand and the Wand is perfect for that."

 WORLD "CHAMP" OF HIGH-EFFICIENCY?

The below "comparison" results are unofficial, but they were done objectively and with "Real" data. The numbers do favor the WiserWand and look to be insurmountable. Is there a new World "Champ" of High-Efficiency! 

WiserWand vs Drip Irrigation

Steve waters his garden with the WiserWand in 2016. He'd used Drip irrigation from 2013-2015. In the video he shares why he switched to the WiserWand.

The table compares the 2013-2016 water usage for August & September. The City of Olympia water department provided gallons used. 

The WiserWand used dramatically less water. The details are here. 

WiserWand vs Sprinkler

Stephen compared sprinkler watering to the WiserWand and reduced water usage by 52%

Risks and challenges

We’ve brought in DA International, they have 25 years of experience and will do whatever it takes to "get it" right.

I'll travel to China to the test the first Wands off the production line. If they works as expected, I’ll give the “green light”, if not, the design will be modified and retested until it's right.

If you questions regarding potential risks please email or call.

Thanks for your support,
