About Us (Continued)
There were interesting designs. One guy made a teleprompter using the box that the iPad came in. Another made them out of compact disc cases. There are two stories about bringing a product to market that have inspired me. The first story is about designing and manufacturing a $7 toothbrush. Making a $7 toothbrush when everyone else was selling them for $30 seemed like a stupid thing to do. You would think that it couldn't be done profitably. An engineer used a technology that they developed on another project that they applied to this new technology. What I got out of this was things didn't have to be expensive even though that was the state of mind.
The second story was about how a small auto company (Tesla Motors) broke into a business with a high cost of entry. The founder of Tesla Motors decide that they were not going to hire a boat load of engineers to build the Tesla from the ground up. Instead, they were going to build the car with off the shelf parts that were designed and built by another company. For example, why not use the suspension for a Corvette. Let General Motors' engineers design the component and their factory workers build it. Tesla saved a lot of money this way. I tried to take this same approach.
I have a tendency to think outside the box. Life seems to be more interesting that way. When I walk through a store like Home Depot, I go down aisles that I don't have an immediate interest in and look at items in ways that they were not originally intended to be used. I used this approach to figure out what off the shelf parts I could use to make a teleprompter. Home Depot was not the only place that I went to.
Featured Case Study
Brian Katzung, from the Business Resources in Northbrook, Illinois, talks about how a highly-capable video studio can be built with a modest budget and operated by one person. This video is the second in a two part case study. The R810-10 Teleprompter and PromptSmart teleprompter application were used to produce this video. Click the image above to view the recording.
