In this installment of the Dev Team Diaries, I give a status update on Bevel's hardware and share an important lesson in hardware development: always verify your design with physical prototypes!

Tell us what you think and leave comments (we love them!)

Until next time,

Drew.

      Timelines are always adjustable. I'd prefer you not cut corners or use inferior parts to meet unreasonable time frames, but come up with the best product you can!

      @ Gregor that is a brilliant hopefully low cost idea. You sir are one smart cookie!

      Thank you for this information.

      I think ,if you put a foam or silicone pressure point on the clamp it would be helpfull .

      Could you possibly add a "For Hopeless Luddites" glossary to these videos? :P

      Great update. I have a workbench that looks just like that :)

      IMO, I would figure that if you drop your phone with the Bevel attached, all bets are off anyway.

      Thanks for keeping us up to date!. A suggestion if I may for the clip. You could remove it completely to decrease effects to the device
