Piles of good stuff

Manufacturing is progressing smoothly, we received all the components needed to start soldering. I'll try to make a video of how you industrially solder about 100 components per Gamebuino... until then here is how we laser-cut the real wood skin!

Piles of components ready to be turned into Gamebuino META

Lasers are cool

Laser-cutting the wood skin 5 minutes away from our office in France, with the help of http://www.ldworkshop.fr/

I assume you've got a Pick-N-Place machine for that. I've seen videos of those things in action, and it's mesmerizing to watch how fast they go, even with tiny surface mount parts.

Yeah they place up to 25K parts per hour, which is about 7 components per second. It's so cool I'll make a video next week to show you :)

We'll also have machine vision to check all the components are there and all the pads are soldered correctly. That's the kind of automation that allows us to keep  all the manufacturing in France.

Hey Rodot- will the Gamebuino come with a screen protector? I saw on kickstarter you said to not keep it with your keys, I know they can scratch a lot of things.

You can get universal screen protector kits for not too much, they come with cutting guides so you can cut to fit the screen.

Hum, maybe an idea of 3D printed cover / options for transport but you have to have a good idea to tidy it when you play. (Maybe you could put it behind but the cover but without hiding the leds...)

I transport my GB Classic (and many others things like earphones) in this type of small pouch : https://www.amazon.fr/NUOLUX-Mousseline-cadeau-mariage-pochettes/dp/B01LZR31HA/ref=sr_1_2?rps=1&ie=UTF8&qid=1517472993&sr=8-2&keywords=sachet+coton

it's cost "nothing" and it's very usefull !
