This update is full of information on the progress made over the last week with Adaptalux. It is also an update regarding pledge awards “Little Snapper” and “Sharing’s Caring”.
Little Snapper Pledge Award:-
The wall of fame image has now been designed by Sam. Thank you to everyone who filled out the survey, we really appreciate that. This image will be published in a featured blog post on our website this week and it will also be plastered onto our homepage. We would like to thank everyone who pledged at this level, you are amazing and helped us achieve our goal! Thanks a bunch!
Sharing’s Caring Pledge Award:-
The Adaptalux lens cloths have now been ordered and are been sent to us tomorrow. We hope to receive them by the end of the week and then we will post them to you as soon as possible next week. We have also included everyone in this reward in the wall of fame image above. The lens cloths are going to look great and we cannot wait to receive them and get them out to you. Again, thank you to everyone who pledged within this tier, you are awesome! We will upload some pictures of the clothes when we get them.
Golden Hour pledge award:-
We sent out the survey for this award last week. Most of you have already filled it in so thank you for that.
Other pledge awards:-
Surveys for the remaining pledge award levels will be sent out next week. Thank you for your patience.
Last week was a busy week for the Adaptalux Development schedule. We finally received the Kickstarter funds last Wednesday, they are now safe in our bank account ready to be put to use!
Sam is already communicating with manufacturers to get final quotes and will start making orders next week. He has been busy finalising parts and optimising Adaptalux for manufacture and assembly. Sam is off to suffolk this weekend to see Andy, so they can triple check the engineering drawings, prototype and CAD models with a fine tooth pick before making a start on the tooling orders.
Sam also went down to Bournemouth at the end of last week. He met up with our electronics engineer and App developer to get things rolling in these areas. Both meetings were great, and many ideas were brought to the forefront for Adaptalux and the App. Work on the App and electronics will begin next week, whilst Sam is busy currently drawing up new visual concepts for the App based on feedback. Things are looking really positive for the next few months in both of these areas and we may have a few surprises up our sleeves for everyone!
Sam took some time to re-visit some dorset locations before returning home, he misses Dorset that is for sure!
We have extended our Kickstarter price sale on our store for anouther week due to the positive reaction it has received. Get any additional Adaptalux parts for your packs at a great one time only price now. http://adaptalux.com/shop/
Heads up:- We are going to run a competition soon to win some Adaptalux prizes. So get out there and start shooting macro to get a head start!
