I have a few other updates regarding the manufacturing process. The final blue and yellow color is a bit different from the colors seen on the prototype; they are a little bit "pastel" tone. The reason for this change is due to how the resin modifies the pigment tone. Here you can see a photo:
Also, I would like to tell you that I’m very happy to send you your microBytes but it is worth saying that it was a real challenging situation. The semiconductors crisis produced a volatile components price situation. Consequently, the shortage left this project in a sensitive position, making it necessary to add some extra funds from my side to finalize the manufacturing process.
That’s all! Your microBytes are getting closer to you. I want to share a photo of the product in the box ready to be shipped:
