Watch Hardware Studio Live from CES 2018
Share this post
Kickstarter, Avnet, and Dragon Innovation are bringing Hardware Studio to CES in Las Vegas, January 9-12.
The massive annual gathering tends to focus on the rollout of shiny new gadgets, but we wanted to do something a little different. We’ll be live streaming conversations with designers, engineers, and makers about how the innovative hardware products that CES celebrates get made, and sharing tips for how to make the manufacturing process less daunting.
The Hardware Studio booth will be a hub of activity. Stop by to see demos of Joto, a robotic drawing board; Sisyphus, a meditative kinetic sculpture; and many other Kickstarter-funded inventions. You can also meet with experts from Avnet and Dragon Innovation, who will be holding office hours for hardware startups. Creators can sign up for these one-on-one sessions to ask questions and get advice about factory selection, sourcing, manufacturing, and much more. Sign up for a session here.
Throughout the show, we'll be hosting live-streamed chats with hardware creators about how they approached manufacturing and brought their projects to life. Read on for the full schedule — and head to Hardware.studio to tune in.
