โœจ jetpack updates 12 ๐Ÿ› flatcat ๐Ÿชฒ Bakiwi workshop ๐Ÿ‘˜ cognition wear

Hi all, dumping a stack of updates from the last few days

flatcat PCBs in the house

The manufactured PCBs for sensorimotor & energymodule arrived at the lab yesterday. This lead to the first run of component placement and baking in the oven today, to obtain the fully assembled electronics boards required for making a flatcat. This seemed to have worked reasonably well and the first sensorimotor was put into operation successfully.


flatcat furs

Another fur has arrived this week from the prototyping done by our collaborator Karen Ellmer. The amount of available fake fur materials is pretty stunning. Right now we are working with a selection from the samples we have, to find a minimal functional design that we can ship with. Something that feels amazing and allows the cat to move freely.


Bakiwi workshop Sept 2021

The first Bakiwi workshop after lockdown took place on Saturday, quite successfully with nine (9) Bakiwis walking out the door on their own for nine teams of builders. It was great to have all of you and we hope you enjoyed as much as we did. To be done again, watch out for upcoming dates.

These are two examples of RTFM

We had a baby rat (some say it was a mouse) coming in for a visit. It then had to be removed from the premises via this contraption.

Our apparel campaign is coming along quite well, and like all that we do, subject to heavy development on the go. We now have demonstration exemplars for all three base colors. This is the black one, the lilac one will be posted soon.

But then taste this full use case as a robot pet holder, observed recently outside our lab.

For those of you who having one of the shirts, here is the true samples for the shirt’s base color. The jetpack tee two there is all of them in sizes S, M, L (limited quantities). For the direct-to-garment corporate insignia prints, we will only do anthracite and white. Go check.


Random stuff

We installed open graph and Twitter card plugins for our wordpress so social sharing is much improved with nice automatic summary previews.

Thank you, that’s it for today. As always, feel free to be in touch about your questions and comments, we hear you.

Cheers, opt + kubi @jetpack central ๐Ÿ’ฎ๐ŸŽด๐ŸŒธ

๐ŸŒฑ Bakiwi 64 ๐Ÿ› Campaign ๐Ÿฆ‹

We are live with Bakiwi 64 – our first campaign on Kickstarter now

Our top product is Bakiwi Kit which stepped on the market from the lab just three months ago. The current estimated wild population of Bakiwis is between 20 and 50 individuals. It’s a very small number, close to extinct.

We want to help the species along and create more Bakiwis to join the wildlife. This is where you are needed. We can make the Bakiwis but we cannot look after all of them on our own.

Check the the Bakiwi shop to get to know the Bak closer, leave us some feedback on the campaign preview over at kickstarter, and

yes please

leave us your email to get notified when the campaign goes hot, and other activities with the jet pack.
