It’s a space where we do experiment with new interesting technology and tinker with hardware and software projects for our in-house use or with our partners. We are also actively contributing to the open-source community.
Fabrication – Laser Cutting and Engraving
We offer Laser Cutting and Engraving fabrication services to our customers. Laser cutting offers a quick and easy way to make custom parts for your project out of sheets of acrylic, wood, card stock, and rubber. All you need is to prepare your design and we’ll handle the rest.
How to Order
If you don’t have access to a computer or design software, we might be able to draw and create a file for you at a rate of kes 500 per hour with a minimum charge of kes 1500
Laser cutting price
* Kes 500 minimum order charge
* No set-up fees
* There is a kes 350 set up per unique part and a kes 100 minimum per additional copy of each part.
* Discounted rates for large orders
NB: We are also not likely to discount our rates for the following parts:
* Single large or complex parts that take a long time to cut
* Very small parts or fragile parts

Some of the Exciting Projects We’ve Done
Precision IoT enabled Energy meters
The meters precisely measure the power consumption of max 2kw and send the data to a custom remote server for analysis and storage. The meters we deployed in Kenya and Rwanda
Partners: Strathmore Energy, Pereybere Energy, AESG Rwanda
Solar Appliances Power Measurement
The devices measure the power consumption of solar fridges, water pumps, and milking machines. The meters we deployed in Kenya, Rwanda, Senegal and India
Sourcing and batch production, testing, and packaging of Wazi Dev IoT hardware
Research and development of motherboard to control locally made ventilator during Covid
Partners: Kenyatta University
