Celebrating Tech Innovation: 2023, A Year in Review at OKdo

As we approach the end of 2023, it’s the perfect time to reflect on our incredible journey at OKdo. This year has been nothing short of remarkable, filled with exciting product launches, meaningful collaborations, tech breakthroughs, and a continued commitment to fostering innovation. Join us as we take a stroll down memory lane and revisit the highlights that have made 2023 a standout year for OKdo and our amazing community.

Launching the Future

We kicked off the year with a bang by introducing the next-generation ROCK 5 single board computers, setting the stage for innovation in the world of computing. 

But it wasn’t just about our products; it was about joining forces with the BBC micro:bit – the next gen campaign. Together, we supported the distribution of 325,000 micro:bit classroom kits to UK primary schools, inspiring the next generation of creators.

Supporting Global Tech Leaders

OKdo proudly became the Micro:bit Educational Foundation’s global manufacturer and distributor. This marked a significant step forward in our mission to empower educators and students with cutting-edge technology.

Scaling New Heights

The expansion continued as we ramped up production in Vietnam and Europe, ensuring that our products reached every corner of the globe. 

The launch of the OKdo Nvidia C100 and our dedication to scaling AI industrial design underscored our commitment to staying at the forefront of technological advancements.

Collaborating and Connecting

At OKdo, collaboration is at the heart of what we do. We engaged with our global customers through our Value-Added Services (VAS) offer, providing tailored solutions to meet their unique needs. Our insightful webinars featuring industry giants like NVIDIA and Arduino Pro brought valuable knowledge and expertise directly to our community.

Forging Stronger Bonds

Building on our foundation of partnerships, we established new alliances with Rockchip, TI, Synaptics, NXP, and ASUS. Simultaneously, we deepened our connections with existing partners such as NVIDIA, micro:bit, Arduino, Bare Conductive, and BeagleBoard.org. These collaborations are at the forefront of innovation, and we are proud to be part of a thriving ecosystem.

Making an Impact at Industry Events

We didn’t just stay behind the scenes; we actively participated in some of the most crucial events in the tech industry, including Electronica, Embedded World, SPS, and BETT. These events allowed us to connect with like-minded innovators and stay updated on the most current tech trends.

Celebrating Milestones

As we celebrated our 4th birthday, we reflected on the journey we’ve taken on our mission in providing the tools and resources needed to bring innovative ideas to life. Get a closer look at what we’ve been up to in our 4th-anniversary blog.
