Update #13

Alpha test begins

1 comment

We have began our internal alpha test of Node platform. There will only be one more round of hardware tweaks before design freeze. 

The API and the iOS library is coming along and we expect to publish that soon in conjunction with beta testing.

We are also developing a number of cool data logging and augmented reality apps to demo at the Consumer Electronics week in NYC. http://www.businesswire.com/news/home/20120524006132/en/CEA-Line-Shows-Feature-120-Innovative-Tech

On the production side, we are making a few small mold tweaks and we are waiting for production samples of the aluminum parts. We have identified sources for circuit board assembly, product packaging, USB cables, and electronic components. We will be doing the final assembly and quality control.

FCC and CE certification lab is also lined up as soon as we freeze the circuit design.

There will be more frequent updates as we get closer to production.
