With the advent of the internet, readily accessible micro controllers, and relatively inexpensive but massively powerful smartphones, the ability to create and innovate in the world of technology has passed from the hands of the large corporate entity to the individual – and that’s just swell!
Compared to only 10 years ago, when the invention of cool new technologies and advancement of existing technologies was still largely monopolized by those who had millions to spend in research and development, there has been a dramatic rise in size and scope of innovations made by so-called “Indy Scientists”. It’s now become possible for the average person to acquire a small amount of technical knowledge and a few components from local electronics stores and put it all together into something amazing. From iPhone apps to robots to sending cameras to the stratosphere, that’s Prophet Studios is all about: innovation by the independent.
Of course, we all still have to make a living, and electronics still cost money, so we make websites and apps for iPhone and iPad too.
