I am Xinjie Duan, a new product manager joined Eve team 2 month ago.
The whole concept of community design is new to me, but I really like it. And after seeing V, I truly believe that we can design the best product with the community together.
There hasn’t been a big thing happened in the community since the design of V and its accessories. While other team members are extremely busy to get V delivered to your hands as soon as possible, I, although also put my main focus to the V shipment, begins to think we need to do something new and interesting before the real next big project.
After browsing the community, I found a Eve brand docking station/hub has been discussed for long. Then the idea comes to my mind – why not just make it now!
However, as this time point I don’t have commitment from the team about money and resources to begin the project – as you know, all of them are put on the production and shipment of V now.
But I still want to try. No matter what’s the result is, at least I will know the community better, and get prepared for the future project – we can practice to build a better design flow.
And, you never know what’s going to happen – there isn’t anything ready when V was designed.
As a summary, why to start a Eve brand docking station/hub:
1. community needs something new to wake-up brains
2. docking station/hub is a hot topic in the community for a while
3. we can practice to build a better design flow in community
Before we vote, I would like to give a little definition for docking station/hub:
a product provides more ports to V or other laptop/PC.
But we don’t limit it to a very particular product at this point. Form factor, size, features are all open.
It can be this
or anything else
So, do you want to start the docking station/hub project
- Yes, Let’s do it!
- No, not interested
If you vote Yes, please give a code name for the project, we will select from your suggestions!
