Transform Ideas into Functional Prototypes - Simple Little Developments


How can we help?


 

Prototyping Stage 1

At some stage of your innovation pipeline, you may need a little assistance with creating actual working prototypes. Perhaps an voice assistant or chatbot, or a connected electronic mechanism, or a mobile friendly web application, or a 3D model/object.

See Project Examples

Feel free to contact us for your project enquiries. You can reach us via email to developers@simplelittle.com

Experiential Workshops

Are you someone who simply loves technology? Have you ever dreamt of transforming your great idea into reality but did not know where to start?

Let us take the first step to bring your ideas to live together! Depending on the selected workshop, you can usually create your very own working Voice Assistants, Chatbots, Microcontroller Circuits or 3D Models, even if you had no prior programming experience. It is always nice to bring back a working prototype that you create for yourself.

Workshops can be held at your office premises. Group size of 3 to 10 participants. If you are interested, please drop us an email to developers@simplelittle.com

Prototyping Services



Our mission is to design and develop for good

We start by first trying to understand the problem/purpose,

And then explore simple solutions, and develop purpose-driven prototypes.

Just like some of the examples above.

Voice Assistants

Talking cars are no longer just fiction from the movies. We can now create talking devices thanks to rapid advancements in Natural Language Processing.

Not only can these systems translate speech to text, they can also perform intent recognition and respond to those intents. The generated responses can be a simple spoken response, or it could even be connected to other cloud services or devices in order to create an immersive experience.

Are you very busy answering similar queries every day? How about creating a friendly voice assistant or chatbot that can help to answer those queries?

Prototyping and 3D Modelling

We start by understanding what is the problem we are trying to solve (and maybe why). And then explore different approaches, before iterating with prototypes of varying resolutions.

The prototypes and mock-ups help users to envision the end product at the early stages and allow for quick iterations. Some may start with paper prototypes, and we help to convert those into wireframes, clickable mock-ups, electronic circuits and other forms of working prototypes.

If a 3D model is required, we can also help to create CAD models for digital fabrication such as 3D printing.

Electronic Gadgets

We program microcontrollers, sensors and actuators, and use them to solve everyday problems. Some of these included connector devices, which is now more commonly known as IOT (Internet of Things).

It is amazing how much can fit onto these little chips, and how tiny they can be.

After getting the basic electronics to work, we can choose to go further to embed insights and controls onto a neat little web app.

Computer Vision

We create simple bots that digitize what they see and assist you in monitoring what you are interested in. Object tracking, OCR, object recognition and more.

Now we can have extra pairs of eyes to monitor those analogue devices and CCTVs too!

Data Analysis

We build simple dashboards to turn raw data into meaningful information. Using web based charting libraries, or using tools like Tableau, QlikView or even MS Excel.

It is true that a picture is worth more than a thousand words. And it is also true that the type of picture you draw can change the entire storyline.

Projects

It is hard to test anything if no one starts to build anything.

Below are some prototypes that we have built, that started with simple questions.

Who are we?

Simple Little Developments is an SME in Singapore that helps to transform ideas and dreams into reality, starting with simple steps. We enjoy doing research, developing ideas, creating prototypes and simple solutions to meet various needs and to improve the quality of life.

Our mission is to design and develop for good

We provide services such as building voice assistants and chatbots, 3D modelling, electronics prototyping, and the creation of web applications. Experiential learning workshop packages are also available for corporate training, as well as for educational purposes. Read More..
 

For prototyping, this includes Chatbots, Electronics, IOT, Computer Vision, as well as quick software mock-ups for Web Applications and Interfaces.
When you can envision the end result and have clear realistic objectives, you can usually iterate and quickly turn your dreams into reality.

We also help with developing full-fledged applications for selected projects with clear objectives, especially those with a purpose.
We tend to prefer test driven development, keeping it user centric and keeping it simple.
For some projects, we may suggest other alternatives or partners for your consideration.

For enquiries and feedback, please write to developers@simplelittle.com
You are welcome to follow us on Facebook, YouTube or via our Blog to get updates on interesting prototypes and projects.
 

About

"Simple little things can mean the deepest things" - Anonymous

It can be really fun and satisfying to build software and hardware solutions to help to solve real world problems.
And to think of ways how technology can be useful to the world at large, especially for the less fortunate.

And yes, to make Singapore and the world a happier place for everyone!

    Finally! You can now engage our services to help you with developing ideas, creating prototypes and simple solutions.

    If you are interested to take a step further and write some code yourself but have no programming experience, you may be interested to attend our introductory workshops where you get to create something and bring it home! We conduct workshops for organizations as well as for individuals with a minimum group size of 3.

    If you are just curious about what we do, you may like to follow our Blog or Facebook Page where we update some of our latest experiments from time to time.

    For many years, we have had fun building little prototypes and solutions in our free time. It was always refreshing and satisfying when we saw the solutions being used for good, even if they were for free. Starting with simple command line software and Windows-based applications, we quickly moved on to Adobe Flash and then subsequently to HTML5 and JavaScript as web technologies advanced over the years. More recently, Computer Vision and Electronics have added a new dimension to our software solutions, allowing the applications to "see" beyond the computer and to interact with the real world even without a computer screen.

    Together with system integration and the vast collection of APIs out in the wild, the possibilities are rather limitless. And even more so with various Smart Nation initiatives.
