SurfaceInk Makes Key Contributions To OUYA Device Product Development

SAN JOSE, Calif., April 4, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- SurfaceInk, established as the leading provider of consumer device engineering and product development services since 1999, upon the shipping of production devices by OUYA, revealed that it has been a key contributor to product development of the OUYA console and controller devices.

"SurfaceInk was instrumental in the development of OUYA.  We relied heavily on their product development expertise," said Julie Uhrman, CEO and Founder of OUYA. "Our product would not be the same without them - they helped us deliver on a beautiful and powerful game console and controller."

In an effort led by Uhrman and the reactor-grade energy of the OUYA Team, in partnership with Yves Behar and the fuseproject team, SurfaceInk was engaged to protect the design intent for the OUYA console and controller devices throughout the engineering and manufacturing phases of development.

"Surface Ink's talent and hard work has ensured a high level of quality and integrity in the final design, as well as an attainable price-point. This is the kind of outcome we have come to expect when we partner with the Engineers at SurfaceInk," commented Yves Behar of fuseproject.

Success of the OUYA development program began with a highly publicized Kickstarter launch with committed shipping dates and relied heavily on the agility created by working in partnership with fuseproject, the award winning Industrial Design and Branding firm.

"We are pleased to have had the opportunity to tackle the task of engineering this challenging and delightful design on a very aggressive schedule," said Giles Lowe, CEO of SurfaceInk. "This program allowed our Team to shine in the collaborative development effort, leveraging expertise and established relationships, in the interest of delivering the highest value to OUYA from the development process. We are proud of the effort and reveled in the opportunity to collaborate with OUYA and fuseproject."
