A Very Special Endorsement

zGlue’s customizable ZiP technology has won us a lot of endorsements in the industry. One backer we’re especially proud to have is Sonny Vu, Founder and CEO of Misfit Wearables. Sonny was a featured speaker during zOrigin’s official launch at Maker Faire, and is very enthusiastic about how zOrigin will change the future of wearables. He shared his enthusiasm in an exclusive interview, which we’d like to share with you now.

Here’s a preview of what Sonny had to say about zOrigin:

“It really feels like the beginning of this revolution.”

“What compilers did for software… finally we have something like that for hardware.”

“What would Misfit have been like if zGlue was around 6 years ago, when we (Misfit) were around?… We would have been able to crank out products four times or ten times faster.”

You can hear the rest of his thoughts on zOrigin and other industry insights by viewing the full Sonny Vu interview here:
