Learn about the Factory

The factory is a hands-on experience where attendees get a kit of parts and assemble a manufactured device to take home.

Learn about concept, prototyping, and manufacturing with Autodesk software, and walk away with an electronic device that you made with your own two hands.

Agile Product Development

Agile is an iterative product development method focused on designing for a rapidly changing environment; using short design sprints to get a Minimum Viable Product into the hands of your target audience, while collecting useful feedback.

  • Sprint 1

    Sprint 1 focused on encapsulating a first pass at all the aspects of our vision into a tangible object. We made decisions on functionality, number of parts, difficulty of assembly, and the feel of the device.

  • Sprint 2

    Using the feedback from Sprint 1 to simplify the assembly process, we made the device thinner, and tested out ways of connecting 2 devices. We chose and stockpiled microchips and connectors this sprint.

  • Sprint 3

    We finalized form factor decisions based on electronics concerns, explored accessories, and made decisions on injection molding rules. We chose and stockpiled screens, batteries, and other electronic components.

  • Sprint 4

    Crucial decisions were concluded, such as device size, material choice, and the addition of a 3D printed a lanyard attachment device. Customer feedback informed assembly instructions and tool / material purchases.
