  • Everything is powered by a single centralised hi-power Lithium Ion battery which is automatically charged by your cycling and because everything is built into the bike there’s nothing to steal and nothing to carry away at the end of your ride; no lights, batteries and locks. The seat is big and fully adjustable whilst built in suspension both front and back makes for a very comfortable ride while the sealed shaft-drive replaces the standard oily chain. SiCOOL® is a test bed for a raft of new safety features and innovations built into a lean and light frame aimed at the ‘about town’ road cyclist.”

  • ELIMINATA® Energy Savers use ‘Plug-in and Forget’ smart technology to adapt to existing office appliances and deliver quick pay back – often within 12 months. DesignEdge’s awareness of market requirements, in-depth knowledge of high-volume manufacture and understanding of technological innovation combined with extensive polymer knowledge was the key to the project’s success. Our eyes were opened to new possibilities and we will be working with DesignEdge on our next generation of energy reducing products.”

  • “DisplayLink is a chip and software company whose technology is used in products from the world’s leading PC and peripheral brands. Our DisplayLink XR technology enables a wireless VR experience, freeing the user from a long cable tether while delivering uncompromising video quality and latency indistinguishable from a wired solution. DisplayLink was looking to build a wireless VR adapter to demonstrate the technology and employed the services of DesignEdge who share our passion for creating beautiful products. The distinctive design is a careful balance of the requirements for thermal management, ergonomic, aesthetic, manufacturability, functionality and performance. DesignEdge presented a number of initial concepts that demonstrated their understanding of our needs. The considerable knowledge and experience of the team at DesignEdge allowed the concept to quickly evolved into a fully functional reference design fit for small volume production. The product has gone on to be the centre stage attraction at our stand at CES 2018 and helped promote wireless VR.”

  • This is an exciting and innovative project which could possibly revolutionise the sewerage industry. Being able to cheaply, accurately and reliably measure the range of flows that go on inside sewer pipes has up until now not been economically possible. However, this innovative bit of kit, which utilises microwave technology and has nothing invasive in the bore, can measure flows as low as 0.20 l/s equivalent to the tiniest trickle in the invert of the pipe, up to virtually full bore flows.”

  • 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.”

  • Design Edge has been vital throughout our entire product development. Their ability to convert our technology ideas and market requirements into workable, robust solutions has been essential to our success. Their team have a wealth of knowledge and expertise; and rapidly assimilate the information they need to come up with clever, innovative designs with manufacturing and certification in mind. We are now moving forward with Design Edge’s help, in the prototyping of other rapid tests for diagnosing infectious conditions.”

  • 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.”
