  17. 17. Consumer Hardware 17
  18. 18. Consumer Hardware: Value Shift to Hardware 18 Prototyping focused on software because a cost of hardware prototyping is too large. Technologies (e.g. 3D printer) decrease the cost and enable hardware prototyping. Now many ideas are realized via prototyping. Software Development was focused on. Hardware Development is easier than ever. 1990~2010 2010~ • 3D printer • Fablab • Prototyping Kit
