Update #22

Prototype Production: Behind the scenes

The 25 prototypes have been shipped to backers to play with and test!  This is a huge step along the way toward completion!

While getting feedback from the testers, I'm also preparing for production.  The longest-lead item, the LCDs, have been ordered!  Everything is still on track depending on how many corrections are needed after further testing.

Here is a set of photos from the prototype production.  I assembled them all myself, which became more work than I originally planned!  There are now about 60 tiny surface-mount parts per device, each needing to be carefully placed with a tweezers.  Multiply that by 25 and you get 1500 parts...I'm so glad to be past that!

      Wow, after a whole year, I'll be receiving a Timelapse+ ---before--- the Trigger Trap.
      Both Kickstarter products don't do the same thing, not the same toy, but both are similar in :
      - designing the electronics
      - designing the case
      - dealing with multiple suppliers
      - assembly

      IOW Elijah, KUDOS, you've managed a A-Z product from pure thought to pure product, ready to ship. Not an easy feat. I just wish I had ordered more than one :) to gift my photographer friends.

      Sweet, are there going to be any color options? What color will the rest of us get?

      @mookmill -- yes, I'm so thankful to be done with tweezers! The production machines will be placing multiple parts per second with much greater precision -- definitely the way to do it!

      Wow. Huge effort Elijah, I bet you can't wait to get the production streamlined without the need for tweezers!
