The Solar Flower exists because of collaboration with great makers in our community. Working closely with 3D Brooklyn (www.3dbrooklyn.com) we've developed a smart manufacturing process that has led to discoveries with material research and production efficiency.
Risks and challenges
The primary reason for reaching out to the Kickstarter community is the development of a custom circuit. We delayed the Solar Flower's original launch by two months to search for an Electrical Engineer and Manufacturer with sufficient experience in off-grid power technology and custom circuit manufacturing, and who shares our vision for a sustainable product.
It is also important to note, that up to this point we've had full control over the creative process and development of the Solar Flower. As we move forward with our manufacturing phase, we will work with our manufacturers to maintain the focus on sustainability by increasing production efficiency, sourcing recyclable prototyping materials, and limiting material excess.
Thank you for taking the time to learn about the Solar Flower. We hope you like our product and can't wait to light up the world!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
