The rise of hardware startups: why croudsourced gear is the future.

A huge number of hardware startups are emerging all over the place at the moment, so where have they come from and what do they mean for us?
We hear about software startups no end, with the latest apps and social networks grabbing the headlines with hackneyed platitudes such as ‘the next Facebook?’ before disappearing into the ether. But bubbling under the software hyperbole, there’s a volcanic rise of hardware startups that will change the face of consumer electronics forever.
The development of third-party software exploded with the advent of the internet. It was, and still is, easy for skilled individuals to make their own software and even start a software company. The initial costs will always be relatively low, needing only a computer, time, a particular skill set and some staff.
