Our community is meant to be a go-to space for sharing insights, troubleshooting challenges and celebrating your creations. Here, we foster a collaborative environment where expertise meets curiosity, and where ideas are forged into reality.



As a unified group, we can advocate for common interests, whether it's influencing industry standards, addressing regulatory challenges, or promoting the importance of hardware development in the broader community. This collective voice can have a stronger impact than individual efforts.


Hardware development often requires significant resources, including funding, equipment and specialized knowledge. By organizing as a community, members can pool their resources, reducing individual costs and making it more feasible for everyone to access the tools and materials they need.


Hardware development involves a wide range of disciplines, including electronics, mechanical engineering, firmware/software development and more. By forming a community, individuals can share their expertise, experiences and insights. This collaboration can lead to faster problem-solving, innovation and the exchange of best practices.


Building hardware products can be a challenging and complex endeavor. Being part of a community provides a support system where members can share their successes and failures, seek advice and offer encouragement. This sense of community can be crucial for maintaining motivation and resilience during difficult times.
