Erichttp://hackaday.io/ceneblockWith respect to manufacturing in China, what concerns have you seen with regards to IP\trade secret? I know the topic is open hardware, but it can be discouraging to see a knock off as you're readying your product for launch.
4
Erichttp://hackaday.io/ceneblockWhat are some things to consider when dealing with different manufacturing vendors? For example why would someone use OSH over Foxconn (for example)
5
Erichttp://hackaday.io/ceneblockHow does one ensure Quality Control of the entire product when dealing with large volumes?
6
Erichttp://hackaday.io/ceneblockRelated to the above, in the manufacturing world, we've seen counterfiting be an issue (FTDI chips in particular), outside of micromanaging, how can one make sure that authentic chips are being used?
7
Andrewhttps://hackaday.io/abbI want to make the step from "circuit board prototype" to "consumer-friendly device". How do you get a gadget into a nice case? (Industrial Designers? Are there standard-ish designs that are readily adaptable?)
8
Entityhttps://hackaday.io/EntityWhat specific experience does the person answering these questions have with manufacturing?

scaranothingWhat do you think prevent the open hardware movement from blowing up into public awareness ? Lack of money, support, publicity or something else ?
10
Frankhttps://hackaday.io/FrankBussis there a company that you can give your working product and they'll do all the certification, manufacturing, testing and shipping, and you get just the money?
11
Cameronhttps://hackaday.io/ekisuSay I've built a working prototype around a raspberry pi. How does one take this and make it into a product? Reimplementing the rpi seems like a daunting challenge and using the rpi in a finished product seems wrong.

Have you ever noticed I Can't Drive 55 has the same guitar line as ZZ Top's Legs?
13
JarrettWhere does one go to start looking into injection moulding, what are the costs, and how many prototypes can be expected?
14
JarrettWhat were the biggest curveballs?

Boianhttps://hackaday.io/mitovDo you have experience with Makerfabs http://www.makerfabs.com/ ?

sorrry, was late getting in. I made a password vault, but it was not really intended as a product, just a cool thing to do. It made me want to get into wearables again, as I once made a wearable WiFi scanner based on the ESP8266. Now I want to build a better one. How would you advise monetizing a product built from off the shelf parts rather than ground up?

Entityhttps://hackaday.io/EntityI'm interested in these ten devices you have commercialized. Could you describe them? What was your role/capacity?
20
Boianhttps://hackaday.io/mitovDo you have specific manifacturers in China that you would recommend, based on your experinece?
21
Entityhttps://hackaday.io/EntityIn regard to the ten devices you've commercialized; Did any require restrictive or costly PCB specs such as HDI or <8mil trace/space?
22
Entityhttps://hackaday.io/EntityCan you explain the process of hiring the contract software person required for the Mooltipass? Where they were found, rates, terms etc?
23
Entityhttps://hackaday.io/EntityHow easy is it to get net terms in China? e.g. Net30 where you don't have to pay the CM until 30 day after delivery?
24
Boianhttps://hackaday.io/mitovHow easy is to handle production without phisically going to China?
25
Foalyhttps://hackaday.io/FoalyyEveryone is always talking about manufacturing in China. Is is still possible for a small company to sell some products (lets say, a few hundreds units) while manufacturing partly in europe (pcb assembly) and partly in house (3D printing) ?
26
Entityhttps://hackaday.io/EntityDo you have any opinions on using one contract manufacturer or multiple for things like bare PCB, PCB assembly, Final assembly, packaging, fullfilment, etc?
27
Entityhttps://hackaday.io/EntityCould you explain the typical shipping situation with a Chineese supplier if you're not there to pick up every order in person? FOB?

I see you got CE and FCC certs. Do you deal with any of the other regulatory certs like RoHS?
