GO+ developer tries to examine user experience from the consumer’s perspective. When people listen to music or access entertaining materials with a headset when they are outdoors, the headset may fall during exercise. Also, users may become anxious when the battery is low, or even when the network connection is not stable which interrupts the playing. Because of all these, GO+ is designed to feature a music player, a heartbeat detector, and even a Bluetooth headset. In the future, it can be integrated with music streaming services such as KKBOX, while heartbeat detection can record all the health data of users during exercise.
The Mighty Net Hardware Accelerator Program assists startups in assuring the efficiency of production and manufacturing in the beginning. In this way, not only the cost for communications between the startups and the OEM manufacturers is reduced, but it also shortens the time for mass production, shipment, and product launch.
