The triggertrap is ready for production!
Hey there! It’s bloody hectic times here at Triggertrap Towers; we’re in the middle of doing our final testing, and things are looking GREAT – we have a load of cameras tested now – as you can see from our vastly expanded Supported Cameras list.
The great news about that is that it means only one thing: Ladies and gentlemen – the Triggertrap is finished!
I know this is a moment you guys have all been waiting for for bloody ages, and believe me: Nobody is as eager as me to get this thing out there.
The next few steps are ordering all the components (That’ll be a fun order, of more than 11,000 ceramic caps, 4,000 electro caps and some 19,000 resistors – to just pick a few of the most outrageous numbers), shipping it to the factory, and starting manufacturing!
Ordering parts is going to take about 4 weeks, and actual production will take 6-8 weeks for all the Triggertraps to be completed. We’re currently talking to the factory to see whether it’s possible to start shipping them to you guys as soon as they come off the production line; obviously, that would be a lot more awesome than having a few thousand Triggertrap devices just sitting in a warehouse being bored.
The downside of this is that we’ve overshot our deadline; I have been saying ‘before Christmas’ all along, but it seems as if it was just too optimistic. Nonetheless; if we manage to order the parts on Monday, it means that the Triggertraps will be winging their way out into the world around Valentine’s day.
New photos & video introduction
Now that, ladies and gentlemen, is some awesome news. Let’s celebrate by sharing some of the most recent photos of the device, complete with its new casing:
