The name "StayrAI" finds its inspiration in the majestic stingrays, creatures notoriously difficult to maintain in aquariums. Derived from the word "stingray," StayrAI embodies our commitment to overcoming challenges. With our innovative device, even these elusive creatures can thrive in captivity. StayrAI represents not just a product, but a dedication to transforming the aquarium hobby, ensuring that even the most delicate fishes can flourish under the care of aquarium enthusiasts worldwide.
We got successfully funded on Kickstarter! Thanks to our backers' support, we continue our mission to revolutionize automated aquarium care and make StayrAI a must-have for aquarium lovers worldwide.
Over four years, we refined StayrAl's hardware and software, developed Lite, and improved our cloud capabilities. Finally, mass production is possible again, and StayrAl is better than ever!
Prototypes of StayrAl units were created for mass production testing. However, mass production was halted due to a global shortage of semiconductor chips, caused by COVID-19.
Our first StayrAl board (prototype) was manufactured with plenty of enhancements and iterations. The revised boards controlled our personal aquariums flawlessly.
Extensively testing our first unit, we made it work like a charm. Thrilled to share this innovation, we decided to build the first prototype for the masses.
We built our first-ever unit and witnessed our aquariums thriving because of this device. Automated keeping was a game changer!
