Project update 10 of 17
Hello Pixblasters supporters! At the beginning of this update, we want to wish you all the best for yourselves and your families in the New Year 2020. It has been a few weeks since our last update and we want to inform you on our current activities.
To minimize risks in the production of the first large Pixblasters lot, we have decided to make a test run on the production line. The above photo shows the making of the brand new Pixblasters MS controllers with a pick & place machine. In a couple of days we will receive the first five boards and run a number of tests to confirm the production process. We will authorize the full production immediately after the successful tests, which means that our shipping dates remain as planned.
The board itself has not undergone many changes since our last prototype. While majority of the design changes are almost invisible, the new black color cannot be overlooked! Look closer at the below photo.
If you haven’t secured your Pixblasters MS1 controller, please note that you can still pre-order your board right from the Crowd Supply project page. The discounted pre-order price remains valid until we start shipping.
And a fun fact at the end of this update – the Pixblasters team was presented as winner of the prestigious Tesla’s Egg award for most innovative hi-tech products in the e-novation 2019 competition, organized by Croatian magazine VIDI! Presented at the e-novation award gala ceremony on December 5th in the splendid Emerald Ballroom in the Esplanade Zagreb Hotel, Pixblasters was awarded one of only three Golden Teslas’ Egg awards among more than 50 other entrants. The original report (in Croatian) from the event can be found at the official VIDI website.
More details about the award can be found our website.
