Beginning of decemder was 4 mounth ago. And i make an order for some parts to EDGE+mainboard.
It was information latter about some problems with stock for this parts and:
"We are so sorry for your inconvenience. We plan to finish the Kap Case after Chinese New Year.
If there is any further idea, I will let you know. Is this ok?
Thank you very much!
Will it be? I mean new disign. And could you give us renders if yes.
Our team decided that the old design used less fasteners and looked better overall. Here are some renders.
Rear button holes are widened for easy pressing
Front buttons have been changed
Front buttons need only 1 assembly step, instead of 2 steps
Rear panel has been reinforced with a 6mm thick “bulkhead”
“Bulkhead” prevents the battery from rattling about
Side panels are 4mm thick to reinforce the LCD display
We found a new supplier that has really clear glass-like acrylic
These renders are reflective of the final product, so you can use them for reference. I decided not to photograph the actual prototype, as cleaning the transparent acrylic panels, and then keeping them clean throughout is a nightmare.
Translated into marketing-speak:
Durable, will withstand shipping stress and daily usage
Easy to assemble, no more fumbling about with those tiny fasteners
Beautiful and elegant, minimum number of fasteners, clear glass-like acrylic
All buttons and cut-outs are fat-finger proof
Battery is securely positioned, and will not rattle
My only wish was if we could get those front buttons in a different colour other than silver…
Thank you Kigsley.
My doughter will be glad to recieve case for our railroad automatization project.
It will be very interesting result. We already wrote signalization , and train roating program (Russian railway rules). It will be great toy for kids!
