The Market Series A: Production Update July 16, 2018

Lots of work happening as we get closer to the release of the The Market Series A. Here's our latest production update:

PARTS ARE ARRIVING!

The Market is composed of over 20 different parts, many with intricate and fine details. Production parts are arriving, we've received indicator needles, mounting plates, light rings, batteries and more. Exciting to see the months of design work manifesting into physical parts. 

MOBILE APP APPROVED FOR THE APP STORE 

The August & Wonder mobile app has now been approved by Apple in the Apple App store. The Android app will be posted to Android Play store soon.  

CIRCUIT BOARDS IN PROCESS

The Market contains two circuit boards. We discovered an issue with the main board, but have now sorted that out and are in production. 

PAYING ATTENTION TO DETAIL

There's a myriad of tiny details that we are looking at. Even something as simple as the USB charger is getting attention. 

NEW ESTIMATED SHIPPING DATE

One of the challenges of creating something brand new for the first time is getting everything tuned and just right. And when manufacturing something with so many fine details and aesthetic nuances, it can take some time to get everything dialed in.

We've encountered some additional work with other key components such as getting the motor dialed in to be as quiet as promised, and a few parts that we thought were ready are being a little stubborn in getting dialed in to spec, tolerances and level of finish. 

Based on what we are seeing currently, estimated shipping is now targeted at the end of August at this point, assuming no significant hiccups. 

More coming soon!
