  • Working with Design Edge on the development of the Rocket™ has delivered our second award-winning instrument design. The eye-catching design is memorable and iconic, gaining a high degree of product and brand recognition in the market. The ergonomics of the system are superb, delivering ease of use and comfortable operation. The integration between the team at Design Edge and our in-house engineers was effective and efficient, with drawings, plans and images delivered on time, and taking into account product and cost constraints inherent in the project. Design Edge is a great development partner and our “secret weapon” in product innovation.”

  • Our business depends on developing high performance technology for microscopy based applications and providing this to our customers both in the form of OEM modules and finished products. We started working with DesignEdge about 5 years ago and their involvement has transformed our business. I have no hesitation in recommending them to any company needing to bring products to market with confidence that the required functionality and appearance have been professionally designed at a reasonable cost.

  • There is a relentless drive for ever smaller electronic products and storage technologies are responding to this call allowing product designers to work at smaller geometries. Designers need to attempt to differentiate these products at this smaller size. The company believes that the concept designs shown at CeBIT will inspire designers and manufacturers of next generation, smart mobile accessories. The new applications and products are limited only by the imagination of our manufacturing partners.”

  • This has huge applicability in the future of augmented reality as there are many situations where video information would be distracting (e.g. driving a car or walking in a busy area), but we can easily cope with audio input. Applications range from assisted living/well-being for the elderly, to productivity enhancement at work, to gaming and exploration. X-Aura was recently launched to considerable success at the International CES Exhibition, a global consumer electronics and consumer technology trade show that takes place in Las Vegas.

  • We have made educational robots for 30 years, longer than any other company. With our latest Roamer the challenge was to bring our experience and creativity together within state-of-the art technology. In these situations the challenge is to ensure the design quality matches the vision. DesignEdge met that challenge going further, adding value to the concept with excellent detailed design. The devil is always in the detail and here they were exceptional, we are moulding some components to tolerances that moulders claimed impossible.”

  • The product utilises patented precision measurement technology and is aimed at the high-end dental CADCAM market, the aesthetics needed to reflect this as a ground breaking product. It was the look of the product that drew visitors to the stand at its launch in Cologne. Customers found it appealing and eye catching and its design became quite a talking point. When Renishaw began developing the product, design was high on the list of requirements. We wanted a design that brought attention grabbing aesthetics to the product.”

  • Inca is an industry leader in the development and manufacture of inkjet printers for the printing industry. When developing the SpyderX platform, we recruited DesignEdge to utilize its in-depth design knowledge combined with its awareness of the print industry and high volume manufacturing; and its input was key to the platform’s success. Customers have since commented on how great the product looks and how the ergonomics of the machine maximize their productivity. Our business depends on cutting edge, innovative and top quality design and DesignEdge was the perfect partner to cooperate with!”

  • We engaged DesignEdge Cambridge Ltd over the course of three iterations of our in-ear headsets (our Biometric headset, Qualcomm TrueWireless Earbuds and sports wired version of the Qualcomm TrueWireless Earbuds). Our engagement lasted several months and resulted in the production of three form factors for our projects for our internal use during which time DesignEdge provided us with extremely valuable technical guidance, design help and support for our projects. We unveiled the headsets at CES in January 2018 and they have since received positive recognition in the market.”

  • The requirements for an attractive looking and robust product even goes down to the inside of the unit. The unit is aesthetically pleasing but maintains its core functionality that fits into a wide variety of deployments. If customers look inside they are usually very impressed, every fine detail has been planned meticulously. If people go on tour of a car plant or if it appears on TV great design promotes a strong brand.” The applications are limitless and Ubisense is now looking to use the technology to help early stage dementia sufferers.
