EVT build – 3/25/13

Hi backers! We have had a lot of exciting things happen here at the Instacube HQ since our last update. Last week we kicked off EVT (Engineering Verification Test) build.

This is the first production-level test build done at the manufacturing site. The purpose for this build is to ensure that the unit performs to design specifications and goals.

Vivian, our mechanical designer from our Silicon Valley office, went to China for a week to assist production and troubleshoot design with our Hong Kong team.

We met with all of our suppliers and worked through several issues on tooling, received painted samples for all four colors of Instacube, selected packaging material, refined assembly procedures and finished 23 assembled units for reliability tests.
