This Startup Created the Ultimate Open-Source Prototyping Product

The world has become a technologically focused place. Unless you’ve set up shop in a cabin in the woods, your life is likely filled with gadgets, wearables, devices, and doodads that control everything from your TV to your laptop. And with all this technology, it’s no wonder tech jobs have become so prevalent in the market. Fortunately, there are a number of ways to learn skills and prototyping projects that will impress even the most critical interviewer. And one startup has built the perfect product to do just that.

Created by a group of students from the India Institute of Technology, evive is an open-source prototyping module that can make creating projects easier than ever. It has a power module, plug and play hardware interface, user interface, data acquisition module, shield stack space and more. It’s even IoT ready so it can connect to more devices than you can count. Plus, it works across multiple platforms like LabVIEW, MATLAB, Scratch, Eclipse, ROS, Python, Arduino IDE and many more.


The practicality of a prototyping product like this is more than obvious. Rather than buying and using expensive components that require a lot of work and can fail you at a moment’s notice, evive takes it all and puts it in one simple-to-use machine. So whether you’re a professional, a hobbyist, a researcher, or an educator, you’ll have all the tools you need in a single product.

“With all these features, evive offers a great platform for conducting valuable research, professional and industrial applications, teaching, learning and developing STEM skills, and for amusement,” says the Indiegogo campaign.

The product has been on Indiegogo for a number of days and is already well on its way to reaching its goal with a month left. The early bird prices, which are still available, are putting this product at a mere $109, which is a pretty great price for something that can handle all your prototyping needs. Check it out today so you can stop fumbling with all your pesky components.
