New Units and Community

by Nick Velasquez

Hi DeepDeck community!

We are glad to announce that there are more DeepDecks soon to be sent out into the world! We manufactured a new batch to send to Crowd Supply :)

Our experience at Crowd Supply’s Teardown

For DeepSea Developments, a company with a passion for technology and creating innovative products, this event was more than just a meeting; it was an opportunity to connect at a deeper level to a world of ideas and creativity. The passion shared by the attendees to build something different and break technological barriers was evident from the first moment.

The excitement in the air was contagious as developers, engineers, and creatives came together with the common goal of bringing to life ideas that could change the way we interact with the world.

One of the most enriching experiences was the possibility of seeing ideas in their earliest stages of development (See marketing IoT). DeepSea Developments found inspiration in the diversity of approaches and the desire of creators to take risks and explore unknown areas.

We enjoyed the different presentations, from strategies to fund your projects, to amazing live demonstrations with electronics, hacking, and how to use different technologies for boosting new project ideas.

One of the presentations that caught our attention was a 3D printed dress, which was created by Sophy Wong. This was very innovative since the 3D printing machine can build clothes, which can be called a wearable dress. On the other hand, we liked a lot another open source project for creating low cost microchips.

Our community is growing

It makes us very happy to know how our community is growing, where DeepDeck has taken on very cool new styles.
