On April 28, Sunday, the founders of ElecFreaks , Robi and Youmans paid a visit to make exchange of hardware development at Huangqiangbei, the location of HAXLR8R office in Shenzhen. HAXLR8R, is a venture fund which focuses on entrepreneurs building hardware devices, a simple word in conclusion, it being a startups incubator for the hardware companies, offering seed funding ($25,000), office space as well as mentorship along with the other opportunities for 2-4 person startups to take an idea to a product.
HAXLR8R selects startups to work with twice a year from the teams who have submitted the application form previously and has a dual location (San Francisco and Shenzhen). And currently the crew of HAXLR8R settled here, together with ten startups filled with enthusiasm for creation, developing and improving the new hardware products , which has been widely received as the start of a new hardware revolution.
Among the ten startups, we chose three of them to have a conversation with, deeply amazed by the uniqueness , practicability , artistic appearance presented in the products. We don’t want to give away too much.. but here’s a little sneak peak of it.
Helios are bike enthusiasts & dedicated riders. They understand the risks of sharing a road with automobiles, and they are convinced that bicycles should be just as visible as any other vehicles on the road.
