Hardware seems to be back in season. Several of the startup’s I’ve seen come through Capital Factory have innovated with hardware and some of it is pretty cool. Hardware is not an easy cookie to bake so it is unusual for a startup to go for it.
This past weekend I was a judge at AngelHack and one of the startups created the printer in the video below:
Creating hardware is cheaper than ever thanks to innovations like the Raspberry Pi which is a lowcost programable computer. With startups willing to take chances on prototypes and programs like Kickstarter that allow entrepreneurs the ability to test the market, it is a perfect season for creating hardware.
