Startups create solution to solve problem. There do projects. There build prototype. It might work or it simply don’t.
Doesn’t need to spend a hefty amount but as little as possible. Cost is not much of a concern.
Prototype aims to perform some simple tasks. Raw material could be as cheap as paper cardboard or recycled bottles.
If mechanical movement don’t require precision, parts such as gear could be made of wood or those off-the-shelf items from the blacksmith.

When one is talking, the other person listens. That is what my school teacher taught me many years back.

It’s was a morning flight at 1 a.m. There’s nothing much to see nor to do while on board the plane.

This island-country is located just above the equator line. One degree north plus a few minutes and a tiny weeny bit of seconds.

It was many years back in my school daze, the word still chime in my mind relating to that sentimental song.
cherish the love
cherish the life
cherish the love
cherish the love we have.
~ Kool & The Gang, Cherish, 1985
