First Packaging Sample
We've been working hard to get everything rolling with manufacturing, and here are just a few of the things we've been up to:
We are currently working with a designer on the packaging artwork.
We added the glowing registration pegs to the Light Pad, made some improvements to the assembly, and our factory is working on the final Light Pad prototype.
We also added a heat sink to the interior of the Light Pad, which lines the back side and connects to the PCB (circuit board.) This will distribute potential heat produced by the LEDs.
Check out this screenshot of the exploded view of the Light Pad assembly!
We have been finalizing the Flipbook Kit's box shape and inner packaging construction. Our designer is currently working on the inner packaging tray which secures all of the items within the kit box.
And we received our first "white dummy" sample of the 8X Paper Pack! A "white dummy" is essentially a prototype box with no printing. Factories make these blank versions for approval before moving on to the die-cut production version with printing.
What you see here are 4 stacks of paper, each stack containing 2 flipbook's worth of paper--for a total of 8 blank flipbooks. Also note the actual screws will be gold/brass color, and there will be more screws than what you see here. I love this layout design we came up with!
As soon as we have a sample of the main kit's box, we will share that with you too.
On another animation-related note, I also recently spent a week in San Diego for Comic Con and got to animate at the Laika Live exhibit. Here's a video about it:
And I posted a new flipbook video on YouTube :)
Thanks again for backing the project!!
More to come,
