Hand painting + App update!

Posted by Radu & Andrew (Creator)

Hello backers,

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.

There are still 437 uncompleted surveys! If you haven't completed it yet, please check your mail inbox or spam folder as all have already been sent!

If you still don't find anything please send us a message here!

      On my kickstarter page, it says a survey was never sent. Can you please resend, or let me know what the status is of my order from 2015?

      I'm a bit upset at how late this is but thankful that I don't yet feel robbed. I hope you guys are spot on when it comes to getting people's current shipping addresses.

    26. Niki Thorne on

      Hello

      I have just received my survey but the prices on the site are more. So I pledged for a colour model including postage with the Lampeter coming to 149 and the site is saying 198 ?!?!?

      Hello, I'm not sure my survey was taken into account. Could you tell me wether you have it ? Since it was a long time ago, i'm not sure it worked.

      Can help me check if I had filled up the survey? Anyway to find out?

    33. Aaron Sylvester on

      Hi guys - I got my survey over a year ago and tried to fill it out but my voucher is for $178 and all the products start at $198 + shipping so there is no way for me to complete the survey. Please send me a blue lampster. No monogramming, no logos, no extras, just a blue lamp. Message me back if you need any more info.

      I sent you a message regarding this but didn't receive a response, trying again - I had initially opted for a non-painted lamp. Is is possible to change my mind and request a painted one? Very much looking forward to get my hands on my Lampster! Thanks!

      I didn't get a survey, would you please send it again? Thanks in advance !

      @Wes - The link that was sent out is the survey. They did not use Kickstarter to send out the site.

      Wes on

      A long time ago a link was sent to a separate website to enter shipment information, I don't believe there was ever a kickstarter survey sent out.

      No survey here, When I sign in to Kickstarter it also says "No Survey Sent" in my backing.
