Testing has Begun!

Posted by swiftpaws (Creator)

The exciting process of testing out the entire SwiftPaws system has officially begun!

It's safe to say that we've been testing out every piece of the SwiftPaws puzzle every step of the way. With a project like this, there are multiple phases of development and testing, and last week, the "brains" of the new SwiftPaws finally got the green light to be played with. Since then, our team at Wild Manta has been carefully "turning on" each component and making sure our electronics are ready to be put into use. This morning, we put all those pieces together and pulled the trigger! Check it out for yourself:

We've also been busy sourcing all the pieces/parts we need to produce the first "batch" of SwiftPaws. As those parts make their way to SwiftPaws HQ we will begin getting lined up for assembly. Assembly itself will only take a few short weeks, however we've still got a lot of testing and work to do before that day comes.

At this point, there are still some tweaks to be made to make sure that everything performs as it should; but we've got an awesomely-dedicated team helping us every step of the way.

You'll likely be hearing from us a bit more frequently as we continue to hit milestones in this finalization and production process. We are still on target to begin shipping in December, and as we get closer, we will be able to give you all a more exact shipping timeline.

      Hi guys, any updates available? Sorry to be a pest, am excited to receive mine. Just got a second Dutch mali pup a few weeks ago, so we’ll be putting it to great use between detection work 😊😊

      Teddy, we absolutely can't wait either!! If we get the chance to send out test-machines we'll keep you in mind :)

      Hi Wayne,

      We stand behind our product 100% if anything should go amiss, we will work with you to get it fixed, whether that be sending you something to perform a fix yourself or sending the machine to us to fix.

      We once had a customer run over one of our pulleys with a lawnmower (ouch!) and we were able to send them some new parts to patch it up.

      I can't wait to get mine! In the meantime, I'll be a tester if you need one😉

      Whoa! That looks great!

      I was wondering difficult to repair? Will there be parts available?
