The Genius of Product Development
Just how Verve 2 came into existence is fascinating within itself. This amazing product was developed by several team members of the company inXus Interactive. The genius behind the conception of the product includes University of California Irvine (UCI) students Nizan Friedman and Jordan Linford. While attending UCI, Friedman and Linford collaborated together while working on designing sensor systems and games to be used on exercise equipment with the guided support of UCI Professor Mark Bachman.
During the course of working on their project, Friedman and Linford started with an initial breadboard prototype and then progressed onward while incorporating enhanced features that included professionally designed circuits. Their successful efforts resulted in the marketing and release of the initial Verve 1.0 to the public after it received successful funding on Kickstarter back in November 2013.
The company inXus Interactive is an active supporter of the Internet of Things (IoT), the concept of which focuses on systems and devices virtually connecting and sharing information and data. As such, team members relied upon feedback from consumers that purchased Verve 1.0 to help guide them in deciding how to improve the product for the promotion and release of Verve 2. The enhanced product, which includes a sensor system and data acquisition system as well as capabilities of a web data server, surpassed the Kickstarter funding goal on September 29, 2014. InXus Interactive has projected availability of the Verve 2 for consumers to purchase with a targeted time frame in November 2014.
