Taking a good idea
and making it great
By selecting expert teams to work with you in a focussed and carefully prepared session, we develop existing ideas, create clarity, and a strong development roadmap. We then work to deliver a working prototype that shows the key form and function of the product, allowing successful demonstration of the product ecosystem. Technology options, feasibility, delivery timeline, projected costings, risk models, supply chains and revenue models are all considered.
Iteration, user testing and rapid product evolution
We develop your product from demonstrator to fully functional product, working closely with your team and our skilled people. Using rapid prototype iteration and continual user testing, our goal is to take a well validated idea and turn it into a production representative version of the product. By nailing the design at this stage we make the final phase of mass production simpler, less costly and faster.
Fast-tracking your validated product to market
Having refined the physical and digital elements of your product, systematic testing and validation leads to supply chain preparation, creation of hard tooling, compliance testing, a refined production process and finally, the batches of final products delivered to global distribution networks and to the end users. Production is scaled from hundreds to hundreds of thousands as required and can be conducted in the UK, EU or globally to suit the product requirements.

What are the trends for Wearable Tech?April 3, 2017
Hopes were high for a wearable tech boom in 2016. The burgeoning market was poised to capitalise on the widespread adoption of ever smarter smartphones. However, at the end of 2016, some of the industry players who had been at the forefront of both brand and device awareness have either left the wearables scene or struggled to maintain a profitable ...
