Check out some of the cool stuff that IR-LOCK Pixy is doing! If you can't tell, we like automating quads. :) (my favorite video is the latest one)
IR-LOCK Precision Landing
IR-LOCK is in the Air!
Slowly but Surely :)
Updated Firmware for High-brightness (Outdoor) Environment
Reward Delivery Update
International shipments are being successfully delivered every day. Based on the tracking information that is available to us, here are example delivery dates for some of our international backers. Don't worry if you have not received your shipment yet; it is on its way ... slowly but surely.
We just released a new firmware with minor revisions ('firmware_IRLOCKpixy_1.0.1.hex'). There are now more exposure settings on the low-end of the exposure range. The lower settings are useful for outdoor situations with a lot of sunlight.

We were able to detect a '360 Pod' at ~60 ft, while also avoiding interference from bright sunlight (see image below). However, the detection was much more reliable at closer range (~30 ft).
This will be helpful for our package delivery quad! :)
Good Day, Backers!
Just a quick status update below:
Over 80% of the rewards have reached their destination so far. That includes over half of the international shipments. We are happy to see that there have been no major issues (aside from the general slowness of USPS First-Class international shipping). I hope everybody successfully receives their reward very soon!
If you have questions about your shipment, you can send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. If you have technical/product/project questions, feel free to post on the forum: forum.irlock.com
It's time to get back to work on our package delivery quad project. :) Talk to you later.
