HIGH TECH YARN TECHNOLOGY
A NEW ERA BEGINS…
THE VOLT Wearable Tech PHILOSOPHY
“Let’s make the very best products that we possibly can. Using everything available to us in the world and base it on Physics and Chemistry.” Senior Scientist Jim Threlkeld said when asked about how we come up with new technology. We have no interest in duplicating what has been done in the past. We take elements of great technology and adapt them and improve them.
KNOWING TOO MUCH
“Sometimes when you know too much about a problem it stops you from seeing the solution.” Senior Scientist Jim Threlkeld said when we asked him about thinking outside the box. At VOLT we collaborate as Teams to come up with solutions. Frequently we do not share our initial thoughts on an engineering problem. If I know what you are thinking it will create a “confirmation bias” in me that you’re right. We keep lab notebooks and write down our approach and our solution. Then we compare notes. Usually we incorporate two or more solutions into a design. It’s collaborative at VOLT. No one ever has all the answers.
Sometimes halfway through engineering a product we realize that there is a better way. There’s no way around it. An idea that seemed good at the time looks mediocre now. At VOLTech we are not afraid to say “Wait, stop. I see a better way to do this.” We make mistakes all the time. We embrace those mistakes. We learn from them and we try to continuously improve. That’s the VOLT philosophy. Never stop reaching for the stars.
