Some say a picture is worth one thousand words, well a good prototype turns the pictures with all the words into something real. Something one can touch and play with. A good prototype will inform you with insights from your experience and more importantly from the experience of your potential customers and investors that drive the product development. Lava Labs has a large selection of in-house fabrication capabilities to prototype quickly, beautifully and on budget. We work with digital fabrication designs to make files for the manufacturing of the parts. Lava Labs has access to state of the art fabrication machinery in the United States and China along with highly trained people that do precision laser-cutting, CNC-machining, circuit board assembly, injection molds, and 3D printing. We also design and program electronics to make functional prototypes that make it very close to what the product would when made.
Lava Labs provides on-demand laser cutting services of over 30 materials with over 100 finishes available to choose from. Your imagination will run wild when you fully understand what you can with our laser cutting services.
At Lava Labs, we create custom hardware designs and prototypes based on our customers’ needs. We design and integrate both hardware and software into functional prototypes that can then be transformed into real products. We specialize in integrating sensor, audio devices, kids’ toys, battery technology, and the Internet of Things(IoT) devices.
At Lava Labs we focus on the people and the prototyping process all the way up to manufacturing. Starting from sketches and low fallibility prototypes and going through to making the high fidelity prototypes that a user can interact with as if it is the real product. With high fidelity prototypes the experience becomes real and so does the feedback.
Through the prototyping process we can shape the user experience and refine it based on the feedback of the users and the input from the stakeholders . Our rapid prototyping team and digital fabrication capabilities allow us to reiterate fast and get from prototyping to design for manufacturing.
