#GOALS Fuze is on fire. They raised a pre-seed of $100k, put together a best-in-class team, launched a Kickstarter September 2016, created the hackable toy ZUBI Flyer, and employ a passion for kids’ tech education that is lit.

#SQUADGOALS “I love the diversity and unique talent each member brings to the table,” Sevy says. “From a mom, to an experienced businessman, to a grandpa, to a savvy Manhattan designer — we all come from varied backgrounds.”

#BOOTSTRAPPING “Fail cheap and fast has always been a rule of thumb. It is a scalable management principle.”

#ADVICE “Ideas should be validated. Products are to be designed. Teams must be built. Value your team, because people aren’t always replaceable. Execution is a qualifier. And make sure your family is on-board, because startup life is all-consuming.”

Microcontroller Specs 

The Zubi Flyer is the bomb dot com for makers: 5 PWM pins, 12 DIOs as well as hardware serial connections Rx and Tx. Running at 16MHz and 5V. The onboard switch-mode boost regulator is designed to operate on 3 Volts.  Power can be supplied from a 3 Volt CR123A battery or from a USB cable that provides regulated +5 Volts DC to the board. Do not run any power exceeding 5 Volts as the regulator cannot handle step-down voltage.
