Surveys are Coming In!
Since sending out our Backer Surveys a good majority of you have filled them out! THANK YOU!
If you haven't filled our your backer survey yet, NOW IS THE TIME! We can't fulfill your reward without the information we get from the survey, like your shipping address...
I know you're all eager for a development update, and we are happy to report that things continue to move forward! We improved a piece of our design because we weren't totally happy with the closure mechanism for the lid of the machine and pulleys. We need those things to stay firmly closed, darn it! So, after a few tweaks to the design we are getting a new printed prototype this week and will be able to finalize that bit of our design.
We have settled on our mold maker and have been busy getting them the files and information they need to begin the process of creating our molds - we can't WAIT to get those first few sample parts (probably within the next 30 days or so) you can be sure we'll share them with you when the time comes!
On the electrical side of things we had a hiccup in our circuit boards. Apparently it's actually a LOT harder to put together our custom boards than the company originally thought. But they're toughing it out and have nearly finished their first redo run of boards. With any luck we'll get to test and approve them over the next week or so.
We are still very optimistic with our time-frames, and can't wait to have photos of stuff to share with you!!
