Trent Shumay – Founder, IoT Design Shop
Hi! I’m Trent Shumay, founder of the IoT Design Shop. Thanks for checking out the site!
Visit me on LinkedIn to learn more about my career and experience. Or, join me on MentorCruise for private mentoring sessions!
What is the IOT Design Shop?
The purpose of the IOT Design Shop has evolved a number of times over the years. In the early days, we were an internal start-up at my company, Finger Food Studios Inc. We focused on Internet of Things products such as the SIGNUL Beacon, a project that we successfully crowd-funded and released. We also won the World’s Largest Arduino Maker Challenge in 2016 with a project called FizViz which was a prototype physical visualization device for Internet analytics.
Originally, we were oriented as a consultant and service provider for customers looking to create consumer devices, physical experiences, and other very interesting (and sometimes quite strange) products! I still do some of this work today, but on a much more selective basis where there are mutual interests. If you might have a project for me, I’m always happy to hear about it. Hit the contact page to get in touch!
Today, the IoT Design Shop functions primarily my own private lab and makerspace where I explore a variety of projects, generally in the space of Robotics, Industrial IOT, Computer Vision, and Artificial Intelligence. I’m undertaking the process of documenting more of those efforts here on the site, and on social media this year, so please stay tuned!
