What if...having a "connected" home were as easy as plugging in a device? That's the principle behind "K Kit", a very small smart-home system that recently funded successfully on Indiegogo. And K Kit is just one of the makers' creations which Z-Spaceship is supporting. Z-Spaceship is the world's first Sino-U.S. cross-border marketing accelerator. They provide Chinese hardware start-up teams with direct access to overseas markets. Which means--they're also introducing some very cool consumer technology into the U.S. "Captain Louis" founded Z-Spaceship in August, 2015. He talked about what Z-Spaceship is doing, the mistakes makers can avoid in marketing their ideas, and how K Kit works to enable any electronic devices to "talk" to one another. (He also offered a hint about an upcoming innovation!) On this episode of Over Coffee®, you'll hear: The factors behind the creation of Z-Spaceship; Some of the challenges facing makers as they market internationally; One major mistake, in the maker community, that can lead to failure; Louis' recommendations for makers, to help determine whether a new product will find a market; How K-Kit works, to create a connected home; Some of the challenges involved, in developing K-Kit; When K-Kit will be available to the general public; Some of the uses of K-Kit, once it's installed; Additional ways in which Z-Spaceship is promoting the "smart home"; A hint about a new innovation for which to watch, from Z-Spaceship, in the future.
