Have a hardware project but no resources for its development?
Want to upgrade an outdated product with new hardware?
First 10 units free
Rhomb.io is a modular system to help electronic designers quickly build, design, or test their products. Because of that, we want to demonstrate the flexibility and potential of the fastest way to prepare your product for market.
For this reason we are offering free electronic engineering services at no cost for the 4 best
projects that apply to our "Get Free Engineering" contest.
What kind of project can I present to the contest?
I have a great idea to develop a new kind of product (e.g. a robot) but I don’t have the knowledge, the team or just the money to design and develop it from the scratch.
I have a product prototipe and now I want to change my current prototipe to some profesinal platform. I would like to know if it could be become real product/device for the market and start the production chain.
I have a product on the market but It is getting a little bit old. Therefore I would like to upgrade the hardware and sell the products that I could no longer sell. Currently I’m using a microcontroller but I want more power and add more features. I would like to use a modular platform and select the component what I want depending the target market.
Then, what can I do?
I contact with Rhomb.io to their contest “Get Free Engineering” and I send them all the info what they need about my project/idea.
If I meet the requirements of the contest and my idea can fit on it... Finally! They send me the notification. I’ve been selected! (During the selection process, Rhomb.io would contact you by email or telephone).
The only requisites you need to apply are:
You need to prove you will be able to sell the product on your own.
The proposed product fits within the rhomb.io platform.
You must have a Business Plan to justify your project.
Please read Terms and Conditions before applying.
A document where the application details and hardware needs are described
Once the project is accepted there can be no modifications.
The project will be declined if the documentation is not complete.
The participant should have all the information about the kind of hardware needed.
No geographic limits. Worldwide applications will be accepted.
"Using our revolutionary rhomb.io system, designers can meet their needs in the shortest time, while eliminating flaws or the need to design hardware and software from scratch before their final design is approved"
