Product Innovation solutions made specifically for you.
Prototyping and Product Development of Ultrasonic Gas Leak Detector, OL1
Enginuity is helping Nova Scotia Start-Up Prosaris in developing their ultrasonic leak detector, the OL1 – radically changing the way we manage leaks.
The OL1 is an ultrasonic leak detector that can detect, locate, and manage the smallest of leaks. Highly applicable for industries such as oil and gas.
Developing a Cannabis Analyzer with Greenlight Analytical
James Wylde wanted to develop a prototype of a mass spectrometer that could sample cannabis in a simpler, more convenient way and provide faster and more accurate results. Enginuity’s Product Development team are helping them make it happen.
News and ideas involving our product design capabilities.
My phone is ringing off the hook these days, and everybody’s pretty much asking the same question: “I want to get back to making my widgets/designing my product etc., but it’s got to be a bit different. Can you help?”
The process of building a prototype is highly creative, often imaginative, and usually pretty iterative. It’s all about moving from a half-baked idea to something you can hold in your hand.
Doug Jones coordinates Ignite, an innovation hub expanding from Yarmouth in central Nova Scotia, to Stellarton in northern Nova Scotia. Ignite’s Mission is to help entrepreneurs grow their companies and their economic impact and their goal is to provide physical space and support for these local entrepreneurs. Their locations provide the tools they need for their businesses, and are they supplied with basic prototyping, video equipment, drones, and more. We’d like to congratulate Doug on Ignite’s new facilities and Enginuity appreciates the opportunity to be one of their Corporate Partners!
