2016 May Updates

Dear Backers,

As you know, we started delivering the beta units in the beginning of this year; we have recently moved the scanning production from being assembled by hand to being fully tooled.This meant that the calibration data that our scanners use have moved from being manually done by in-house by our team to being done by the factory and being equal for every scanner. However, this factory calibration has caused some issues with our detection engine and with previous scanners already in the hands of beta users. We are now resolving those issues, and we are doing our best to have them fully resolved in the next 3 to 4 weeks so the delivery of the beta scanners can resume. So, we are delayed in sending all the beta prototypes to our beta users due to this main issue.

Meanwhile, we are implementing some of the feedback we have received from our early adopters. For instance, this week our app will allow the users to customize their daily nutritional targets with not just a maximum but with a range. Previous app versions took default targets from Apple Health Kit for things like daily calories, fats, protein and carbohydrates.

After the beta units are fully delivered we will be regrouping all the feedback and soon after we will be shipping units to developers. We are aiming to finalize the SDK by this summer. Soon after the developer units are fully delivered we will start the delivery of the final units.

We also want to share with you an article written by Didier Sanz, high tech journalist from the Le Figaro (The bestselling newspaper in France 323,000 issues) named « L’assiette passée au scanner », The scanned plate

Once again, many apologies for the long delays. We are trying to deliver a great product and we know it has taken a long time, and you thank you for your patience and understanding. Thank you again for your support!

Dear Backers,

The first series of scanners are currently being delivered to Beta Testers. A few of you have already received your scanner and we are glad to hear about your impressions about the beta units so far.

For those who aren’t yet holding their beta units yet, we anticipate that they will all have been shipped your way by April 2016.

In the meantime Beta testers such as Kevin Michelizzi have already begun speaking about their experiences with the beta scanners, you can read about on his blog.

In other news the previous week, Tuesday February 16th Tellspec gave a demo at the Texas Instrument Booth during SPIE Photonics West 2016, for those of you who could not attend, the demo was filmed and posted to our facebook page as well as youtube.
