Tomorrow we assemble our first ten production test units that we are using for accelerated testing. Peter How is cranking out a detailed assembly guide tonight. Here is one page from this guide.
Several international teams are interested in our design and all of our documentation will be released as open source. We’ll share more later about all of the folks that have volunteered to make parts for these test units. Folks like Ross Mukai, UH Institute for Astronomy, and a few more.
Nat Bletter is helping us assemble tomorrow. You may know him as the chocolatier behind Madre Chocolate We hear he may bring chocolates! But he’s also a Stanford engineering grad. His buddy Micah Brodsky is also helping. He’s a wildlife Vet but also grew up working in a machine shop and built race car engines… plus one of his primary areas of research is respiratory/diving physiology. He’s built scientific equipment used to study that in whales and dolphins. It will be awesome to run our sensors by him in the morning.
We also have a few friends lined up for when we start to assemble like Robert Nehmad. Tons of talent here that are willing to volunteer.
Isn’t this a crazy awesome community story?
