Revisiting Where We’re From

Bee Motion S3 has been in development for many months, a process that involved many updates, multiple revisions, and lots of testing by me and by other Bee Motion S3 beta testers. It’s been a fun journey so far, with a lot of learning experiences along the way. I’ve documented a lot of this process on my YouTube channel, and I invite you to check out a stream I put together on designing one of the Bee Motion S3 revisions:

I also have a stream on assembling Bee Motion S3 units for testing:

(Don’t worry, for the full production run, I will use my pick-and-place machine, as hand assembling large batches of boards can be pretty time intensive…)

I will talk about that pick-and-place machine in more detail soon. Stay tuned!
