Risks and challenges

The most immediate challenge to overcome right after the project is funded is to acquire necessary certifications from the FCC and the Bluetooth SIG (Special Interest Group). FCC testing/certification is expected to be straightforward as steps have been taken to reduce EMI (electromagetic interference, what they test for) as much as possible. With the Bluetooth SIG, no laboratory testing is required, just paperwork.

In terms of manufacturing:

More than 110 suppliers and manufacturers in China have been contacted since the start of the development process. This has been narrowed down to 16 suppliers/manufacturers based on cost, production capacity, level of cooperation, and quality of components. Two of these suppliers are yet to be negotiated with: the supplier of the product box and the manufacturer responsible for sewing the preassembled electronics into the tie.

Very simply put: The Lumen Tie is not something that is complicated to manufacture. The methods for manufacuring The Lumen Tie have been optimized to ensure as much as possible that no errors will occur. The people responsible for the different steps know what they are doing. The electronics are assembled by skilled workers in that field, which is then sewn into the tie itself by other skilled workers in that field. It's that simple. Not to say that there will be no issues at all, but the likelihood of major setbacks should be low.
