After our last update, we received the first final enclosure units(about 100 of each) for us to give final approval and finalize production. We did give approval for final production and when injecting all units, the transparent mold got some damage the manufacturing engineers are fixing right now. We were truly in shock, but we could not give an update until the engineers were able to perform a complete damage analysis. Due to the Holidays, that assessment took 2-3 more days than usual, but they have just communicated us that the mold damage is really minor and the mold will be completely fixed this coming week to finalize injection.
During this setback time we have NOT relaxed at all and we have continued working on the App and software development to support all devices(mobile , PC and tablet ) and operating systems.
For iOS devices , we have integrated the L8 SmartLight with the Apple Notification Service Center so that all notifications coming to your phone can be displayed on your L8 automatically without using the App. Here are among other, some of the supported notifications : Emails ,Facebook ,Twitter , Instagram ... and device native Apps such as : incoming calls, text message ,and calendar.
For Android devices, we've also integrated the notification system and added a menu to our app so that you can select those events you want to be notified of.
On top of that, we have also developed a new App for Windows that will allow you control your L8 via USB or via Bluetooth from your computer.
In addition, we have integrated new functionalities to the mobile App, more specifically, illumination modes, and we have improved significantly the sensors calibration.
Long story short, everything is ready on the hardware side except for the molding piece that got damaged and it is currently being fixed, and we keep improving the App and software as you can tell every day.
We take this opportunity to wish you a happy 2014 full of light and color and thank you again so much for your patience and support.
