Likuma Labs is a two-man team based at Washington Avenue’s NextFab that’s behind some of the coolest hardware startups out.

  • They designed the hardware component to Biomeme's  smartphone diagnostic lab.
  • Same for Smart Vision Labs, the New York City-based startup that turns the iPhone into an instant eye exam kit.
  • They built the prototype for Nucleus, the buzzy local home intercom company that started pre-selling units this fall.

An industrial designer is not likely to be one of the first employees that a startup hires, the pair said, so Likuma positions itself as a hardware design team for hire.
