The original mission of e1ectr0n was to support new hardware development with a special kind of accelerator. We were prepared to donate space—up to 7,000 square feet—and supply manufacturing engineering support. Oh, and funding from ourselves and a number of source.
We were ready to do the heavy lifting it takes to lift off into the universe. It didn’t happen. We didn’t achieve liftoff. But we learned a bunch in the process.
There is very little complex hardware development happening outside of established companies. Also, there is a robust hardware development community built around using Components Off The Shelf (COTS). Using COTS is a laudable effort, we do it ourselves when it makes sense, but developing on COTS doesn’t require the heavy lifting e1ectr0n was built to offer.
It’s exciting to pivot. We have a refined mission and a path to success. We are going to make waves in the industry and introduce a revolutionary concept. Exciting!
We’ll announce more about this pivot later this year.
