Hand painting + App update!
It's very clear that we are at the end (the good end) of this project. Still had some delays with the body as the neck is almost solved but because of the work in that area, a small difference between the two halves( a small gap) appeared.
We are in the full process of hand painting the heads. What we are doing now is going full ahead and mounting the electronics in the heads, packing etc and when the final body arrives will just put it in the box. The iOS app has been sent for publishing. The Android is ready and will be sent for publishing on Tuesday. We had some work on the firmware and software as there was a little problem. You have one physical button and two white light options. Also in the software about the same thing. You will see in the preview as we added the locking button. Also, we have added in the firmware the possibility to calibrate the touch sensor as our calibration might not be the best for a different, environment (humidity, static electricity etc)
Every time there are some small things to be fixed, things nobody thinks of until struck by :) To speed up things we split the molds and now two companies are working to finish the adjustments. Basically, this is it.
We expected the painting and hand painting process to be one of the most time consuming and difficult things in this project. Hand painting goes really well and we are very pleased with the results. Actually, it goes better than expected. As you can see from the movie the scale is impressive. We are using an entire picture studio as it has dust filtration systems so no dust would interfere with the painting while it's drying and curing.
Drying takes 4 hours and curing takes 24 hours.
As you see, each Lampster will be unique, as the patterns and brush strokes differ from painter to painter. So you will not find two identical Lampster.
The only thig we are waiting now to start shipping is the final adjusted body.
