First ever crowd-developed device
Many of you probably haven’t heard of Eve, but company’s philosophy of making its product definitely deserves attention. Instead of forcing users to deal with what’s offered, the company gives them a chance to develop the product themselves.
Eve launched a community where thousands of tech enthusiasts participated in creating the Eve Pyramid Flipper, with users basically choosing every feature of the device. This ‘user-first’ philosophy deserves respect because it provides users with a way of getting what they want. Also, if users become unsatisfied with the device, they can’t blame Eve as the company fulfilled their wishes.
We assume that Eve was inspired by Microsoft’s Windows 10 Insider program in which users have an opportunity to test system features before their commercial release. Eve brought this philosophy to an entirely new level by giving users access to an actual development of the device. We fully support this project by Eve, and we hope it will bring the company a lot of success because it definitely needs more recognition.
