Assuming I've run out of dumb mistakes with my prototypes, I'll announce the product in 4 weeks. The release date will be 2 months after that (the time it takes to manufacture).

Good news - it's finished! I've started all the purchases and getting quotes from manufacturers.

But the documentation needs some effort, so you'll have to wait another week to find out what it is :P

clue: it's a combination of some of the things mentioned/guessed in this thread ;D

Best case, it ships out in 3 months . . . but knowing my luck with manufacturers who knows . . . :-X

I guess it's a sensor then... Best guess..

A camera CMOS sensor...

And a second guess through some vid of yours.

A "flying" Axon variant for UAVs.


If I guessed right? Do I win something???  :P
Eh, Beloved Admin??  :-* :-*

My guess is a microcontroller with built in wireless comm: think axon + xbee.

That was actually my failed product idea back in 2009. I spent like ~4 months working hard on it, then canceled the project because I predicted (correctly) too much competition in the market. So I made the Axon II instead ;D

There are clues in various places as to what it is. I found them all and put them together a few months back. I also happened to be in DC at the time, so I was able confirm my suspicion I saw Admin in person.

So he does exist. I thought he wired his brain into the ERP and connected it to the SOR server farm.

Well, I didn't say otherwise.  ;)

Or, I guess I did. O well.

Bad news everyone . . . found a big mistake and will need to prototype yet another :'(

(not a joke)

2 more weeks delay . . . but I'll still probably publicly announce it in one week . . .

Kinda my intro. Yep Admin and I are collaborating - his brains/design - I'm just adding support. No more clues..

So what your saying is we need to put the screws to webbot to find out what the product is...
or check out the source tree...

He-he - I've been very careful to keep this under the hood! So no info there - nor in Project Designer, Board Designer etc.

Hell, whatever it may is, just say... We've been waiting too long...

And apart from that, it's an Admin product... Is that the best part of it?
Perfection takes time!

All I can possibly add is that the 'heart' of the new product is rather new and therefore not very well documented by the manufacturer and there ain't much, useful, stuff on the web. So Admin is breaking a lot of new ground to get this to work along with software support - and whilst the delays seem to be to your collective disappointment it costs him $$$$ for each 'new understanding/fix' - but  the result will rock !!

If he only wanted your money then he could have launched it 6 months ago. But he'd rather give you something that works instead - ie "Proven by Admin"

So: patience is good !!

Nuff said - back to 'quiet mode'

Looking through my old files, now I know why I made the mistake. The company that produces the key chip I'm using had left out some very important information in their datasheet. I just downloaded the most recent one and the info is corrected.

So...what you are telling us is that you'll find another big mistake in six days and delay things again? (Not on purpose, of course.) ;D

I think I will camp out outside Admin's door until he steps outside and announces to the world what this secret project of his is. Forget any additional waiting. Those who are interested are going to have to do that regardless of whether you tell us what this thing is or not.

C'mon Admin, it's been more than a week since you posted that. :(
I think I speak for almost everyone when I say that I'm dying to know what this "secret product" is. ???
Patience is a virtue, but your product better be good for all this torture. ;)

I'm still running tests on it, so can't promise the release date or price yet. Probably 2+ months.

The smarter of you squirrels will be able to figure it out without more info. I'll only give more info when it's ready.
