Green Shoe Garage is a solutions engineering company. We bring innovation, ingenuity, and a strong collaborative environment to every project. “Good design happens when innovation meets ingenuity” is the motto of Green Shoe Garage. It means that while many organizations can be innovative in dreaming up wild, new ideas; not everyone demonstrates the ingenuity needed to design and deliver intuitive, sustainable products. We believe it is the combination of innovation and ingenuity that sets the best designers apart. While the problems we tackle are complex, our solutions are not.
Practically speaking, we help entrepreneurs around the world quickly transform raw ideas into fully functional products. As a product realization studio we take great pride in blending embedded electronics with classic physical workmanship. We handle the entire product development stack from design and engineering to rapid prototyping, custom fabrication, real-world test & evaluation, and even low volume manufacturing. We have the people, knowledge, facilities and technology to take on a wide spectrum of product development challenges; with a specialization in creating products that uniquely blends intelligent embedded electronics with imaginative physical design. Experienced with manufacturing at scale as well as the bespoke. We are helping to pioneer truly open source product development. We leverage open source design tools to the greatest extent possible and we always give our clients access to the source files for their products (hardware, software, mechanical, documentation). We encourage clients to in turn release their products under open source licenses by showing how open encourages faster innovation and greater likelihood of business success more-so than proprietary solutions. This is crucial in a world where products are no longer islands unto themselves.
For clients who already have network-connected embedded electronic products we can perform physical and digital vulnerability assessments. We can find ways your products can be hacked and exploited. We can also provide recommendations on mitigation strategies. Thus helping to minimize the threats associated with your Internet of Things (IoT) products.
