People can channel their inner tech inventor thanks to Wattage, a Toronto-based startup. Its mission is to make designing electronics more accessible to those unschooled in such a seemingly complex area of expertise. Of course, BlogTO points out, "To make something programmable that's unique to you, and something you would be proud to showcase in your living room is no easy feat."
Wattage simplifies the process by providing an easy-to-use platform for digital fabrication. They will be able to choose the colour, materials, size and components for their dream digital product, and the Wattage software will create the schematics while Hot Pop Factory, a Toronto-based 3D printing creative shop, will create the parts. These will be shipped to the 'tech inventor' with instructions on how to assemble their one-of-a-kind creation.
