Revisions? Some were actually made right before shipment.
There could be some fixes but not a lot.
Nope. We are pretty much independents right now and Borisu's desicions is everything. He makes these things. We each have our own little projects and will help each other out on them many times. This was the first mass thread project. As of right now, there are no plans to create a mass startup. Unit cost can be signifigantly reduced however. Experience on quickly and effectively building these units are had by Borisu and the mess ups are cleared. A different cheaper and smaller case and other things may even bring the cost down more possibly. But in the end, there are no plans for it. We are students, and this stuff uses up A LOT OF TIME, and as the organizer, a lot of stress for what the hell is going on as well.
But none the less this was a great experience. We each knew how to do things but only when we actually did it did we see. For example, we can all think of how we can do things but its only when you start and get experience that truly matters.
I knew how people thought, marketing, and what 'words' and type of persona I should use for the business side of things, but I have tremendously learned a lot from this project. I felt at first that I shouldn't be too stern or business like as it may make me seem bossy. That was a mistake for example. My 'let it be' attitude actually created more problems then a set in stone attitude. Borisu leanred not to leave engineering descisions in the hands of the consumers. It wasn't anything big, just questions on whether to keep feature X or to do Feature y instead. Just small things that real life application of an idea can truly let us see.
So yeah, we are currently just students working on personal and sometimes group projects and hobbies.
They are mainly contained in our thread. Head-fi's largest thread, the head fi anime thread.
