“It’s 11pm on Thursday night. Konstantin just walked into the office. Roger is on his third dose of Dayquil and 2nd box of tissue. I picked up a Spectrum Analyzer and a dozen of Tamales earlier in the evening. And we have one blip of unexpected harmonic impedance on the Go Stick that we need to eradicate. It’s time to get the party started!”
It’s a big weekend at Bia.
The whole team is in Ensenada this week. Five folks from our manufacturing partner are arriving from China tomorrow. We’ll spend the weekend taking them through all the assembly and test procedures so they can set up the production line back in Shenzhen and build the first field test units!
We are also reviewing all their proposed mechanical tests, which right now include simulating:
- 2 years of bright sunlight exposure
- 5 years of button pressing,
- 4 hours tumbling down a gravel hill.
They requested that we perform the washing machine test in the US. ☺
