We have been very quiet for the last 6 months. That does not mean we have not been busy. On the product development front, Chief Engineer, Mike has our product Alpha prototype on his desk getting software refinements.    Our Industrial Designers are working on the “pre-production” prototype for Beta Testing.   This is the…

Una Status for April 2016

Well, things are certainly moving along. We’re working on the pre-production hardware in the lab. The device software is coming together. We’re doing some final ‘human subjects” tests before selecting which vibration motors to use. The Industrial Designers are running off some sample plastic enclosures for us to work with on a 3D printer —…

Una Vibrators Product Development Update January 2016.

Its been a long road.   We’ve worked hard to design a new vibrator with a unique shape, control system and curl-your-toes experience. We are finally in a position to say that our 1st product (and our 1st Beta Tester) is “coming soon” The main circuit boards — the brains of the device — arrived…

Una Vibrators Development Update

Team Una is deep into the layout of the printed circuit boards that go into our device.  Its taking a lot longer than we though, but the work is coming along nicely. Our Industrial Design team has given us rough dimensions to work towards for our circuit boards — we know how wide they can…

Una Update April 5th

We have not had time to write recently.  That’s because we’re so busy. The industrial designers are working on the plastic shell for the device based on feedback from our focus group.   We’ll have 3D printed models very soon. Mike and Angela are working on the circuit boards to go inside the shell —…

The Most Complicated Things in the Universe

While I do not have great wisdom, and according to some people I am not all that smart, I believe I can identify the three most complicated things in the universe. #3 — The US tax code.   While certainly very complicated, it pales in comparison to #2 — The human brain.   Consciousness and…

What’s new at Una Vibrators this week (March 4th)?

We’re continuing to work on refining the hardware design.   Today, we ordered another test board for the motor drive circuits.   These circuits turn the 1’s and 0’s from the microprocessor into big heaps of electrons to make the motors do their thing.   The Doc is continuing to work with our advisory team…

What’s New at Una Vibrators this week?

I’ve mentioned “the designers” in number of posts.  Who are they?  We are working with an Industrial Design firm in Los Angeles.  The designers have backgrounds in fields like mechanical engineering, design,  art, human factors, and manufacturing.   Their job is to translate our sketches, ideas and rough prototypes into a design that is beautiful,…

How SHE saved the Doc’s Phone

This is not really a story about SHE.  Its about the Fuck Shame sticker, and what happened after SHE when Team Una needed some dinner. So what is a Fuck Shame sticker?   I am glad you asked. On Saturday evening at SHE, there was a mix and meet where lots of people (like Team…
