Comments from the Oculus Rift Team
"Huge thanks to you and your team for all the incredible work you've done for us. With the units you've helped create we've given tens of thousands of demos worldwide. Those demos have driven sales, media attention, and developer interest in the entire category of virtual reality. You guys have made a big contribution to our momentum, and we owe you deep gratitude. Keep doing awesome stuff!!"

“At the pace that technology changes it’s great to have a partner like Mina Products. Mina has always exceeded our expectations in the world of rapid prototype and manufacturing capability. Their approach and expediency is proactive rather than reactive. I have no reservations in recommending them to any company requiring Quick Turn product development.”
~Matt Thomas, the Director of Mechanical Engineering at Oculus VR
Rapid prototyping with 3D printing is straight forward, fast, and works well for concept modeling. At Mina Products we help our clients to create, test, and refine their products so they can go from ideas to market ready, quickly.
CNC Mill and Lathe Machining
We work closely with our clients to eliminate supply bottlenecks for machining projects. Mina Products is an ISO 9001:2015 certified business, and able to manufacture machined metal and plastic components for prototyping and production.
DropShades are LED audio responsive glasses that light up to the beat of the music. Wear them in the club, at that next, long awaited festival, or wherever you can find sound. Made in the USA and well engineered, DropShades automatically adjust the audio sensor according to the volume of the surrounding environment. The glasses feature a rechargeable lithium ion battery that lasts for 14 hours and comes with a Micro USB to USB charger.
Brain Trauma Medical Model
This model of the human skull was made for medical professionals to practice brain surgery. With a removable clear cast "skull cap", our client was able to practice trauma pressure relief alongside other surgery techniques. These models were created using cast foam materials.
Bard Biopsy Systems
We worked side by side with Bard Biopsy on several products. The housings for the biopsy machines (below,right) were manufactured using cast urethane, with special detail being given to the trays and their handles.
DoD Tracheotomy Model
This was a special project for the Department of Defense. Using injection molding, we created a throat replica, with a movable tube, to simulate the look and feel of an actual tracheotomy. The inside cavity of the model was a bit tricky, as we had to produce exact grooves to match those within the actual human throat.
This model was designed to train soldiers on how to perform tracheotomies in the field.
