Rewards and more
we have still have (too) many requests from all over the world asking for delivery status of Magnic Light -but we have to concentrate on our Kickstarter version first.
We have placed all backers on our website and updated the names according to the information you gave us: http://www.magniclight.com/MagnicLight/index.php/en/startseite/42-thanks
If you move the mouse over a backers name it will appear in the image above - hope you like it;-).
Post cards and T-Shirts will arrive here on Friday and then directly go to our backers.
What about the light?
We ordered magnets and made experiments to check if the LEDs survive extreme conditions (using a waveform generator). We still test several prototypes for the generator kernel to find out the optimal configuration. Next set of prototypes will arrive in the beginning of May. After some final tests shapes for injection moulding will be selected and the diameter of the carbon tubes will be fixed. This is planned for the third week of May. We also test different mounting parts and we will decide in the third week of May which one will be selected. If there are options for optimization we try to integrate them in order to make the Kickstarter version as robust as possible.
Last week German television visited us for two days. On May 15th at 19:50 (CEST) there will be a report on German channcel MDR ("Einfach Genial"). This is a chance to view Magnic Light filmed with professional equipment.
Today I have appended a picture of the T-Shirt (here: one for me with my name in the center) which will arrive within the next days.
