Inventions to Prototype
Every inventor has a spark that lights an idea to paper. M Squared Electronics posed a challenge to the employees of the company to come up with concepts that would provide a new avenue for an electronic design project. This was an open project to all employees to brainstorm. The goal was to find something to conceptualize and bring to life as a physical product that could potentially be manufactured by M Squared Electronics.
The staff at M Squared came up with several ideas that were reviewed and one stood out as a potential niche that could have a target audience with an unanswered need. A device to measure humidity levels within a home for health reasons.
- Step 1:
Brainstorming for ideas that would benefit a target market and provide an electronic design project for M Squared to conquer.
- Step 2:
Connected with an inventor advocate company via LinkedIn networking.
- Step 3:
Idea was conveyed for a tool to measure humidity for health reasons inside a home and alert the owner of the levels visually but with minimal battery life used.
- Step 4:
Concept branding ideas and target markets were explored by inventor advocate company.
- Step 5:
Industrial design team took research and created some drawings of potential shapes. At the same time discussion began about the electronics to run this humidity minder. Once a sleek design was agreed upon the prototype was manufactured at M Squared Electronics.
- Step 1:
As of today the partnership with the inventor advocate company has progressed and a prototype was manufactured using some state of the art technology. The brand was named and exhibited at trade shows and will be presented to potential targets in the market that would have a need to verify and be alerted to changes in humidity. This is no longer limited to a health related product. There are some other consumer uses that were identified within the music, information technology, and other potential markets.
