Perhaps you’ve heard, we’re in a hardware revolution. Perhaps you’ve also heard, it’s fueled by crowdfunding. And perhaps you’ve also heard, Kickstarter is not a gadget store.
Therein lies an opportunity.
This week I took a deep look at the way Dragon Innovation, a consulting agency which launched its own crowdfunding site, is trying to make this hardware revolution into more than a short-lived fad. Behind the company is hardware vet Scott Miller, who I interviewed for this week’s PandoWeekly radio show. Check out the article I published yesterday, or listen to an interview with Miller below. Maybe even do both if you really love hardware.
In the show, we talk a lot about robots — giant dinosaur robots, swimming tuna fish robots, mop robots, Star Wars robots. We also briefly discuss treadmills for dogs. But mostly, we talk about why hardware is so damn hard, and how the category is poised to explode with new innovation from startups, if only they can learn to calculate their costs right. Listen below.

Dragon Innovation is all about delivery.
We’ve been fueling the Hardware Revolution by providing services for Makers since 2009. Now we’re breaking new ground with a crowdfunding site that’s just for hardware.
