Having a prototype is key
As an owner of Spruce, I strongly believe that it is easier to sell your idea to potential buyers or investors if you have a prototype. With a prototype they can now see, touch, hear and smell your idea instead of visualizing what you're talking about from looking at drawings or reading a product description.
Spruce is your ideal partner for building prototypes where hardware and software expertise is needed. My office and lab are located in The Hague (Netherlands), but I do also work on a consultancy basis.Get in touch
I can help you with
Almost all the popular web programming languages you can think off • I prefer frameworks like Laravel, Django and Angular • Wordpress • Drupal • Responsive • Git workflow • Docker • REST API's • GraphQL
Most of the mobile apps I build with hybrid frameworks like Ionic and Cordova. They compile into Android and iOS apps. No native Java or Swift is needed for prototypes.
Native C programming • Arduino • ARM architecture • Internet of things • Atmel • FreeRTOS • FPGA design
Multi-layered circuit boards • Surface-mount components • Partnerships with PCB manufacturers • Well equipped Labfacility
I can help you with 3D modeling your prototype and prepare it for production. I design both for clients in Den Haag / Randstad but also for remote clients if it suits the design process
Your prototype can be printed in high resolution and in a wide variety of materials like ABS plastics, metal, ceramics, flexible plastics, etc
Problems are there to be solved. I love to be creative and combine existing solutions from different industries to create new prototypes
The Lean Startup • Minimum Viable Product • Kickstarter • Respect for scarce startup resources
As a technology driven person I like to work on innovative projects. My educational background is a mixture of Product Development and Electrical Engineering. This enabled me to build working prototypes and small series of hardware. My friends discribe me as: eager to learn • creative • thinking out of the box • a real go-getter • curious and always up to date on the latest technology.
