HARDWARE DESIGNS SPRINT
Define the challenge, target a problem to solve and rapidly prototype hardware to gain invaluable feedback.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
We use our expertise in wearables to build on the principles of the proven Google Ventures methodology with our added USP of real, testable physical hardware.
We collaborate to refine long-term goals, understand the audience and interview domain experts. Over the two-day session we create candidate ideas, prioritise key problems to prototype and plan user testing.
With expertise across industrial design, electronics, software and soft goods, we rapidly create physical hardware which can be used to gain early user insights.
We identify high value user questions and observe user interactions with the physical prototypes, learning through quantitative and qualitative feedback.
Our broad wearables expertise qualifies us to give informed product investment recommendations, which de-risk and reduce the cost of delivery.
WHAT YOU GET
The Sprint generates a selection of design concepts and enables in-depth assessment of hardware options. Rapid exposure to testable, physical prototypes will identify outstanding questions, produce early user insights and inform product investment; all of which reduces cost, risk and time in delivery.
“It’s like fast-forwarding into the future, so you can see how customers react before you spend all the time and expense of building a real product.”
Jake Knapp, Creator of Design Sprint
