It’s official. Plane tickets are purchased. Visas secured. 10 days from now Roger and I – Cheryl – head to China for the first pre-production build. We’ll return home with field test units for our first group of testers!!
Our whole team is working (literally) around the clock right now. The updates the next few weeks will come fast furious so you can share our excitement and progress.
The big victory this weekend was touchscreen. This has been one of the most vexing parts of the product. While touchscreens are common in mass-produced consumer devices, securing these custom-sized parts in the US for prototyping when your company is a wee bit smaller than Apple is NOT easy. Remember our “sanding glass” debacle this past November?
We finally found a great vendor in San Jose, CA. And here is our touchscreen in action!This is a dev unit loaded with the software for manufacturing testing. These are not the functions that will be controlled via touchscreen in the final product…but you get the jist.
Feels like progress!!
