We started with a simple idea of using Surface tablets at eye-level right next to desktop monitors as an experiment in the Microsoft Garage. Outside of Microsoft, we continued the experiment by collecting feedback from educators, non-profits, and a vocal Reddit group. With overwhelming support from these communities, we were able to bring a line of ergonomic workstation products to market while building a small business.
Open Source Hardware, Education, and Non-profits
Because we love supporting education and non-profits, we've checked design files into GitHub so individuals can build their own docks from scratch. While we can't promise all our latest innovations will make it to GitHub immediately, they will eventually. If you are a student or a team member of a non-profit organization, feel free to reach out using your .edu or .org email address if you need assistance or to inquire about product discounts.
Rapid Product iteration
We have embraced USA-based 3D-printing and laser cutting manufacturing techniques to keep development and production overhead low. While these manufacturing techniques don't scale to mass production well, they do enable smaller production runs appropriate for the niche products our customers seek. Without massive investments in injection mold tooling, we can continuously iterate our designs based on your feedback and bring the best possible computing experiences.
