HARDWARE DESIGN SPRINT
Define the challenge, target a problem to solve and rapidly prototype hardware to gain invaluable feedback.
HOW IT WORK
We build on the principles of the proven Google Ventures methodology, incorporating our extensive experience of wearable form factors and real, testable physical hardware.
We collaborate with you 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.
Because of our expertise across industrial design, electronics, software and soft goods, we can 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 Hardware Design 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.
A tested prototype
“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.”
