As promised in the previous Update: about shipping.
We are in the middle of the assembly and packaging process.
First Lumus, we believe, will be shipped somewhere next week. In any case all devices should be at your home before Christmas.
Some of them are almost prepared, others are following up!
We are applying the best of ourselves to the successful delivery. It is the nature of a new product, that some processes can't move faster or without obstacles.
Looking at the previous two weeks: the last parts we've been waiting, electronic boards, are now completed. Audio plugs are being soldered to them at the moment and first batch is finished.
There were some problems regarding soldering process, and that step had to be redesigned. Electronics needs special care.
We also found some new ways to strengthen the whole device and enhance it's durability.
Thermoformed white plastic insert had been reiterated, to provide safer delivery and carry Lumu securely. We are expecting them to be completed tomorrow.
Every single Lumupack assembly part is double checked.
Electronics is tested for real life situations and exact light measuring preciseness. Housings and other hardware parts are inspected for good manufacturing quality.
In the meantime, app is updating with new features. Keeping it simple and yet extremely useful for the user. When you receive your Lumu, there will be plenty of new things to try out!
Some of the features can't be tested without Lumu (for instance - average/contrast function). But you can still send us and new idea, feature or suggestion you'd want to see in the Lumu app.
Some of you, dear backers, already did that and we highly appreciate your effort!
Initial idea is like a tiny little seed. It dies if not cared about properly. It is wonderful how a product grows from very simple and short idea. How from initial design and development by a few people comes to manufacturing and then to distribution, and finally to users.
