Our Prototyping Strategy

Prototyping Goals

Why are we creating prototypes?

The type of feedback that will be most helpful for refining and improving our product idea is:

  • Would you be willing to invest in a product that captures carbon and solar energy simultaneously?
  • How much carbon should the product capture on avg. such that you considered it as useful?
  • How much space at home would you be willing to commit for the product?
  • How regularly would you change the spot of the product (i.e. should it be flexible)?
  • How much would you be willing to carry (mass/size)?
  • How much would you be willing to spend on the product?
  • Have you more use-cases inside or outside the house?

Prototype Features

What product features are we prototyping? And why? What do we hope to learn from testing this feature?

  • Carbon Capture and Storage Technology - does it make sense to combine CCS and PV in one product?
  • Shape of attachable PVs - which shape provides the most flexibility and efficiency at the same time?
  • Customer Concentration - focus on customers outside or inside house?
  • Battery Volume - how large must the battery be?
  • Energy Efficiency - how efficient must be product be?

Prototype Media

How will you prototype and share these features with others to get their feedback?

We plan to create a sketch and a replica from the product.
