Risks and challenges
We use specialized, miniature components in the Eyecatcher Bracelet. For some of these we only have a single supplier. Even though we have a close dialog with our suppliers, we are not in control of their actions. Every component is highly integrated into and optimized within the design, and an unforeseen component alteration can delay fulfillment.
We want to re-design the electronics moving from two rigid printed circuit boards so a single rigid-flex printed circuit board. Since we have not previously worked with this vendor, there may be unforeseen delays.
Battery life has been quantified using measurements and datasheets, however the real world battery life may be different.
We want to use a hydrophobic nano-coating to provide water resistance. However we have not previously used such materials or vendors, and so the real world performance has not been proven.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
