the time for a big update has come. After some days of silence we want to share with you a lot of news about the latest achievements and the next steps of the project.
PRODUCTION AND DELIVERY
First of all, you will be happy to know that we will ship the Ego! Smartmouse in June! The supply of the components is almost complete and the production of the first batch should start at the end of May. As you know, we successfully tested the manufacturing of the plastic parts. Then, during these weeks, we designed the test procedure for the final device validation, we made a prototypal packaging and we tested the material and the thickness of the touch label. During the next weeks, we will complete the product label, the instructions sheet, the warranty sheet and the device CE certification.
EGO! SMARTMOUSE FIRMWARE
We worked hard to improve the device operation and, as we want to give you a best-in-class device, we’re still working on testing and bug fixing. Furthermore, we’re currently implementing the procedure for the firmware updating which will allow you to keep your Ego! Smartmouse always up-to-date.
COMPUTER SIDE SOFTWARE
The main news is that we’re implementing a new graphical interface that allows you to access quickly the most popular websites without typing your passwords. This interface should work as a smart-hub that you can bring to the fore in every moment by double clicking on the touch surface of your Ego! Smartmouse.
Thanks to your support and the success on Kickstarter, Laura Sapiens received many partnership proposals. One of the most interesting opportunities is about the cloud storage and the possibility to provide more space and more interesting plans. Therefore, we’ve planned the required developments to give you these benefits. It will require a little more effort but we’re sure it’s worth it!
Last but not least, you will receive a Kickstarter survey in order to collect the shipping addresses and the customization choices. Furthermore, we will also provide you information to start the collaboration with developers and vendors.
