There have been many articles written about hardware startups, but little in the way of analysis of trends in the ecosystem based on funding and crowdfunding data. This presentation will be similar to this blog post (with updated data and deeper sector analysis). It will cover the what and the why underlying the growth of various subsets of the hardware startup ecosystem: robotics, connected devices, wearables, and designed products.
