To keep costs down, Armani and his team reduced The Micro’s volume. He said that during manufacturing it’s important to remember that product-size scales to the third power. If the device is made half the size in one dimension, it’s actually being reduced by a factor of eight in terms of weight, material cost and shipping. “That’s one way that we can pass savings on to the end-user.”
