pretty long time passed since my last update. Nothing really happened during that time, as I've waited to receive all the cases back from additional polishing. All the USBs were bought long time ago. All delays were because of cases production and updates. Now they are all back:
From left to right: Ti, Fe, Ti again, Al.
It really took time, but the cases I got now look really awesome. The mirror-like polishing was not planned from the beginning but due to scratches it became necessary. The factory this time did its work right. Just check the difference:
Left to right: polished Ti, Al prototype, polished Al, 2 polished Ti in the front, not polished Al case with key-ring and o-ring. Actually you can't see too much on the foto, but it is really better. However Al cases are not so strong as Ti or Fe, so this look will not last long if you wear them with keys.
Here are the USBs in the cases ready for moulding (those went out already few weeks ago):
And here is how final result looks like:
Polished Al, Al prototype not polished, and not polished Ti case with USB. More pictures are at the end of the update.
Sorry that it took so long. Within 2 weeks everything will go out.
So, tomorrow I'll ship as many cases as it is possible to do during a day - will write an update right after submitting them to the post. Now the updates will go out pretty often, as the production is really moving and I fully control it.
Also I want to tell you about new Ukrainian project. The guys behind it are very young - in their 20th they are almost 10 years younger than me. At this point of time they already set up the production of cool socks brand - Sammy Icon. And their project on KickStarter is a product of a year of successful experience: Sammy Icon 8bit: creative socks for every day
They came to KickStarter to fund a fresh 8-bit socks collection, featured by Mashable, after a year of successful socks production experience.
The project has collected ~$5.500 from $8.000 needed and I have no doubt it will be funded. Also, I'm sure they will deliver everything on time as they way more experienced then me.
If to compare with me doing first steps and being 10 years older this youngsters definitely deserve you check their project. Just give them a chance.
