Indie Product by DIY, Without Investment
(presented in Panel Discussion 2: Knowledge and Making)
Takasu Masakasu advocates the idea of training people to make their own Indie Hardware, that also means, people can make product literally without investment. Hardware is not easy to be made, as it bears a physical form, and making hardware is always more uncontrollable than creating software. Starting from zero is the best way for one to understand DIY, to control what is being made, as well as to keep track of the final outcome.
Mr. Takasu will share his rich experience about Indie Hardware Movement in Japan and some other Asian countries.
