HWTrek, a global community for digital electronics, today announced the beta launch of the HWTrek Project Development Hub (the Hub), the world’s first cloud-based intelligent navigation tool for creators and inventors working to bring hardware projects to market. The Hub generates a management flow tailored specifically to each unique project and facilitates collaboration between inventors and HWTrek’s ecosystem of manufacturing and supply chain partners – ensuring that the right people are matched up and connecting based on their areas of expertise.
In the beta phase, inventors are able to:
- Create a preliminary schedule that gives an overview of all the tasks that lie ahead,
- Collaborate with HWTrek's experienced project management team, which will tailor a schedule and production plan for each project,
- Monitor a project's progress, and
- Move into the next stage of the production timeline with industry guidance.
“Navigating the process of developing a new gadget or mobile device can seem daunting to even the most experienced inventor. The Hub assists inventors every step of the way and all in one place as they plan, develop, manage resources and track the progress of their projects,” said Lucas Wang, CEO and Co-Founder, HWTrek. “Its intelligent navigation is unlike anything else out there, working as a matchmaker for the global hardware maker community. This is just the beginning; users can expect more features over the coming months.”
How does it work?
The first step is to let the Hub know what you’re building. Projects span across all hardware categories, from mobile and wearables, to auto, health and science, to industrial apps. Based on specific project information input into the system, the Hub will generate a customized production schedule.
Users then track the progress of each ongoing project, with prompts on what exactly needs to be done at that point for each one. With that insight, users can use the built-in communication channel to invite relevant collaborators – team members, partners and manufacturers – to learn about their project idea, production schedule and plans to bring the product to market.

The explosion of new web/cloud/IoT-based applications and the data they generate are transforming our world right before our eyes. In this rush to adopt these new technologies, organizations are often ignoring fundamental questions concerning who owns the data and failing to ask for permission to conduct invasive surveillance of their customers. Organizations that are not transparent about how their systems gather data telemetry without offering shared data ownership risk product rejection, regu...

Who are you? How do you introduce yourself? Do you use a name, or do you greet a friend by the last four digits of his social security number? Assuming you don’t, why are we content to associate our identity with 10 random digits assigned by our phone company? Identity is an issue that affects everyone, but as individuals we don’t spend a lot of time thinking about it. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ben Klang, Founder & President of Mojo Lingo, discussed the impact of technology on identity. Sho...

There are 66 million network cameras capturing terabytes of data. How did factories in Japan improve physical security at the facilities and improve employee productivity? Edge Computing reduces possible kilobytes of data collected per second to only a few kilobytes of data transmitted to the public cloud every day. Data is aggregated and analyzed close to sensors so only intelligent results need to be transmitted to the cloud. Non-essential data is recycled to optimize storage.
