Tooling is Complete!

Bringing you our first major update since our campaign closed a month ago.  Everything is proceeding apace -- what a busy month!

The tooling is complete.  They "fabricated" it, which means welding and grinding and shaping ... and we've received the first actual Raindrop Box for testing and evaluation.  We filled it with water, tested the connectors and made sure everything was as expected.  There are a few small issues to resolve and the engineers are a little worried about the distribution of plastic along the lower structural "through hole",  but it's all on schedule and going well and we should start production soon!  We're very excited to see this coming to life!

We will post another update soon when we have an accurate schedule for how and when we will start getting these wonderful Raindrop Boxes out into the world...

The Raindrop Box is alive!  It's everything we hoped it would be!
