Showcasing Our Soldering Results

This will be the last update during the crowdfunding phase of our campaign, and we want to say thank you! Thank you for the interest, for the support, and for the suggestions. And, of course, thank you for helping us meet our funding goal so we can bring Vapor Phase One to the world! To conclude our crowdfunding effort, we thought it would be appropriate to present some photographs of our latest soldering results. Read the full update.

Improving the Heating System, Lowering the Funding Goal, and Extendeding the Campaign

In the interest of making Vapor Phase One even more precise, we are currently working on some improvements to the controls for its heating system and to the temperature sensor at the heart of that system. Unfortunately, these enhancements are taking longer than we anticipated, which has prevented us from posting a number of campaign updates that we had planned. As a result, and in consultation with Crowd Supply, we have decided to extend our campaign by a full month to ensure that we have time to share as much information as possible with potential backers. In addition, we have managed to reduce our funding goal by approximately $5k, which will allow us to proceed with manufacturing if we sell 12 Vapor Phase Ones (rather than 14). The backer price will remain the same! Read the full update.
