Today we started producing the first 250 of our 500 initial production batch at Saline Lectronics, a contract manufacturing company out of Saline MI. No major hiccups, though we had one or two LEDs which were switched and a filter which was incorrectly sized, but those are fixable in the next day. Luckily we found them after the first 30 units, and not after the first 500 🙂
We spent most of today prepping the case itself (as you can see in the picture), and did a dry run of a single unit through the entire process (from assembly to calibration) to ensure we had everything we needed. Bluetooth continues to be challenging (connecting mostly), and it’s now my least favorite communication standard by far! But once you get it connected once it gets easier after that.
Expect to see more updates in the next few days as we continue to move forward. The current estimated ship date is March 3rd. If there are problems or setbacks I will update you as soon as they happen.
