its been a long couple of weeks here at iwinks HQ and we are very excited to report our progress today ;) Aurora is well on its way to production, and below is a sneak peak of Aurora's look and feel. For a more thorough production plan, see our previous update #28.
Manufacturing Progress Update
When we sent out our last update, we had a nearly-functional Aurora PCB plagued by a couple of problems (bugs). Our team has worked hard all week long to identify those issues and have successfully identified those bugs and implemented hotfixes on one of our prototype boards. in the meantime we have been running baseline tests with our small batch of (mostly) functional boards!
Our diligence and commitment has paid off providing us with confidence to re-design a %100 working PCB, having all the functionality Aurora requires. Our team is working hard right now to send that design off to be printed and assembled!! Once submitted, will take 2-3 weeks to produce and deliver to us. We will let you know when we have started that countdown.
Chances are high that it will come back to us bug-free, at which point we will be able to lock-in our PCB design and we are on our way to shipping Aurora!
The iwinks Service
Meanwhile, as our engineers, coders and technicians are working hard on Aurora, our creative team is in heavy development of a new website and mobile app; our existing website is receiving a complete overhaul and our app service is nearing completion of the initial UX design phase. The iwinks service is already taking shape as the de-facto lucid dreaming service. Neither are fully developed but our core functionality is beginning to look really promising!
Our app will be cornerstone of our platform by connecting iwinks users to their dreams and eventually, to each other. The app will train users to be better lucid dreamers in a fun, natural and engaging way. We plan to offer a basic version for free so that everyone - regardless of income level - can experience awesome dreams! Since most of our backers use iOS we are building the app prototype for that platform. Here is a sneak peak of our app progress (much will change).
Basic App Features Include:
- Friendly Alarm Clock Wakes You Gently
- Dream Journal Designed to Increase Dream Recall
- And More!!!
Aurora Users Will Enjoy Additional App Features:
- Seamless Control of Aurora's Settings
- Aurora Stimulus Creation
- Clinic-Validated Sleep Pattern Graphs
- And More!!!
Our SDK/API is also in development which will allow our developer community to leverage Aurora for nearly any creative means they can dream up! You can expect more on that soon ;)
