Over the last month, our team has been focused on manufacturing the remaining Aurora Kickstarter devices. We are in the first phase of large scale mass production: assembling the electronics modules, or Aurora’s brains. We’re working closely with our numerous manufacturing partners to ensure this very important build goes smoothly.
We have placed the order for all components and currently awaiting parts with the longest lead times to arrive. We have also invested in stocking these items to expedite future orders. As soon as they arrive we will begin assembling the device electronics, then move forward with full assembly, testing, packaging and finally shipping the remainder of our Kickstarter orders.
We are excited to announce the final version of Aurora's Bluetooth firmware has been released and is undergoing internal testing. This update will completely change the game for Aurora users by providing full wireless communication with our mobile and desktop apps.
Our engineering team is fleshing out the necessary app-side upgrades to take advantage of Aurora's new wireless capabilities. Testing these features is the final software hurdle before Aurora officially supports all our original Kickstarter campaign promises! Meanwhile Aurora Desktop is undergoing heavy maintenance towards a 2.0 release. We look forward to fulfilling our list of standing device pre-orders and creating inventory for future customers!
