About this project
Risks and challenges
I would love to tell a story full of risks taken and challenges that I have had to overcome but truth be told it has been a smooth ride.
I took the drawing shown above to Kui Co Inc, a company that manufacturers all sorts of plastic component using injection molds.
The owner of the company expressed interest in the design and agreed to have his engineers complete a CAD drawing and print a pair to test on his 3D printer. The first prototypes worked amazing. We tried a few different materials but agreed that the first set (pictured above) would be the one we would move forward with.
The final step before we are ready for full production is the building of the injection molds. Kui Co in San Clemente will be handling the molds and production. We will be up and running early May. To start we will be able to manufacture up to 20 pairs every 15 seconds.
With 30,000,000 I pods being sold every year, there are a lot of earbuds out there that as we speak are falling out of the ear. Lets solve the problem.
