The community around Reddit’s mobile-focused hardware company, Madison, is doing well, according to one of its engineers.
“I think the hardware community has been really supportive, really supportive of us,” Madison’s founder and CEO, Adam Miller, told Recode in an interview.
“They’re really excited about our products.”
The Madison team’s hardware team includes a variety of engineers from Apple, Google, Intel, Nvidia, Facebook, and many others.
Miller said he believes there’s “a good amount of interest” from the tech community in the company’s products.
“People are just really interested in it.
I think there’s a lot of interest,” he said.
“It’s not a product for the masses.”
Madison launched in early 2018, and Miller said the company has been working on a range of products and services since then.
Madison has built hardware that helps people use their phones to make and receive social media content and to share it with friends.
The company recently launched an Android app called the “Social Machine,” which it says can be used to make a video chat with people in your community.
The app can also be used for group text messaging.
“We have a couple of really big announcements,” Miller said.
The team is working on another project to make “smart” home automation and smart doorbells.
“These are really cool,” he added.
Miller, who has been with Madison for about a year, said that he hopes the company will be able to make enough money from the app that it can be a success.
He said he doesn’t know how much Madison would be able sell for the hardware, but that it will be something in the $3 to $4 million range.
Miller noted that Madison hasn’t had any trouble securing hardware.
“There’s been a lot more interest in the hardware side of things than we expected,” he explained.
Madisons hardware team is still in the early stages of development.
It will take a while to develop and test the products, Miller said, but the team is excited to see what other products they can build with the company.
Miller’s team was also happy to see that Google, Facebook and Intel have joined the Madison hardware community.
“A lot of people were skeptical of Madison because it was an unknown, so they were looking for a product to back,” Miller explained.
“So, Google is really excited to be part of it.
Intel is very excited to join in on it.”
“I love to see our hardware community,” Miller added.
“If I can build a cool product, I’ll do it.
There’s nothing more motivating than being able to get that first product out there.”
