“Squink” promises to bring “Agile Development” to hardware companies

24.10.2014 | |

For years now industrial designers have been using 3D printers and laser cutters to build their prototypes in a matter of hours. Conversely, Electrical Engineers are stuck with traditional methods for circuit prototyping. Such methods are expensive, lengthy and require messy and complex processes.

“Squink”—BotFactory’s desktop circuit factory—promises electrical engineers, hobbyists and hackers the ability to quickly build and test a circuit, lowering the manufacturing time from 10 days to 30 minutes, and the manufacturing cost from US$250 to US$5 or less.

As it has been shown in the software industry, introducing Agile development will increase the business value of the final product, improve the adaptability to change, increase the visibility of the process and lower the risk of project failure.

This new tool is a game changer for the hardware industry. It means companies will be able to keep their intellectual property in-house and protected. It also accelerates their development cycle, saving time and money, and allows them to better predict the cost and schedule of the project. When the race to the next electronic product begins, companies with access to this technology will be better prepared to face competitors and maneuver to take the ship to safe harbors.
