Out of Hibernation!

Out of Hibernation!

Hello Owls!  We are finally out of our hibernation and we are itching to get back to work.  

It seems like yesterday that we finished our Kickstarter campaign in July 2014.  Time sure flies!  Last May/June 2015, we delivered ODIN 1.0 to all of our Kickstarter backers and we also sold out of our first production run earlier this year.  It was a steep learning curve dealing engineering, production, delivery and after service requirements but we were able to get through them with your feedback, patience and understanding.

Re-Starting Mass Assembly Next Week

Re-Starting Mass Assembly Next Week

I am currently in Shenzhen visiting the engineering office. As you know, we shipped out a batch of ODINs in mid-February before the Chinese New Year. At that time we were not able to ship out all the products, because of the small gap at the rotation hinge and the pending factory shutdown due to Chinese New Year.

The general response has been positive from the initial ODIN receivers. People have been impressed by the optical quality from such a small device and the responsiveness of the Android operating system.

February Mass Production Update: Almost Got There

February Mass Production Update: Almost Got There

I came back to New York from Shenzhen last Friday and the good news is that we will be shipping 20% of our goods this week.  Recipients were selected randomly and not based on any specific order. 

The bad news is that the rest will be shipped out in mid-March.  I was hoping to have the final assembly finished by February 8th, but we ran into a small problem with the spindle that controls the ceiling rotation

We Are CLOSE to the Finish Line!


Happy new year!  We are starting the trial assembly today!!
In the trial assembly, the assembly engineers and workers will learn the best method and steps to assemble ODIN. Only about 40 of the trial samples will be made and it will take 5 to 7 days. After the trial assembly, we need another 5 days to run tests, and once that concludes, we will go ahead with the mass production, which will take another 5 to 7 days.
