Hardware is hard is so commonly said it has become a cliché. Yeah, you know it’s hard, but why exactly? This article discusses this in detail.
Fortunately, there is good news too — developing and launching a new hardware product is easier now than it’s ever been.
Making hardware is hard because developing a hardware product encompasses multiple fields of engineering and computer science. Most engineersdon’t have all of the required expertise.
Also engineering fees, prototype expenses, and the high cost of injection molds create a significant barrier to entry for many hardware entrepreneurs. Making product changes after manufacturing has begun is slow and expensive.
