What goes into making a hardware product? | Ep. 19

Have you ever wondered how a hardware product goes from concept to market?

On this episode, Matt talks through the steps needed to make consumer electronic products. He walks through the many skills required for making hardware: electrical design, firmware development, industrial design, manufacturing, distribution, to name a few — most of which we didn’t know before our first Kickstarter.

So how can a small team juggle it all? Matt discusses how we make it happen. This can be SUPER intimidating to newcomers, so we hope this is a good overview for anyone getting started building consumer hardware.
