Biggest difference between building hardware & software
At a high level, the biggest difference is in how the product development happens. Software companies can quickly iterate their products - something hardware companies don't have the luxury of.
Start w/ the easiest version of what you're trying to build
Test the functionality with potential customers, and incrementally add new features and design.
Get a lot of customer feedback before adding new features.
Flow Labs aims to change how people think of water usage.
Our vision is to give everyone detailed knowledge of their water use, provide actionable insights, and empower users to control their usage, so we can collectively save water, energy, and money.
