In 2014, Tokyo-based ABBALab created a support program for startups that wish to develop and market hardware for the Internet of Things (IoT). ABBALab proposes a wide variety of services, from funding and equipment to skill enhancement starting at the prototyping phase of early development.
Konishi explained that he founded exiii on the idea that he and his colleagues could provide the designs for everything from the mechanisms and substrates to the configurations and programming code of robotic prosthetic hands, which are extremely expensive devices, in an open-source format. “We also believed that using 3D printers to create prosthetics would be a game-changer because much more affordable than ever before,” Konishi said
Cloud-based technology supports co-creation
Later on, Ogasawara acted as executive producer of DMM. make and created DMM.make AKIBA as a facility that provides various manufacturing equipment for prototyping for possible mass production in the future. For example, exiii develops its prosthetic hands with support from ABBALab and with equipment from DMM.make AKIBA. “When we brought our ABBALab operations to DMM.make AKIBA, we migrated to the cloud-based 3DEXPERIENCE platform and started expanding our support system to more startups that might be joining our program down the line,” Ogasahara said.
“The first thing about the 3DEXPERIENCE platform that really grabbed us was its cloud-based approach, which opens up a lot of possibilities for co-creation since we don’t have to deal with the restraints of working in specific locations,” Ogasahara said. The other big thing was how the platform lets you save data in a database -not files – which helps ensure that the latest information is accessible in real time. This feature really ties in with the whole co-creation concept, enabling a lot of people to work on a single design in a collaborative setting.”
