Shift Sight HQ has relocated, but we are still working out of boxes. Our primary computer is setup and has resumed rendering models / video 24/7 for the WIP website overhaul. We are still pushing with full momentum: there is not a second to lose.
I wanted to share an iFixit link describing the necessity of durable electronics. The quick facts at the top say it all: recycling is not a long-term solution, as approximately 30% of material is lost in the process. You cannot remove pristine egg yolk from a baked cake.
Look forward to regular updates soon!
There is no post tonight. We are getting close to launching the website and fundraiser, despite many roadblocks. One of them is self-imposed: as we were going through videos, we realized that there is nothing that is just strictly fun.
We've been so busy that we forgot to have fun! There is a new video in process, and the screencap above is all I can show you for now.
The website reveal was originally planned for this weekend, but we will take a bit more time to do it right because there is not time to do it over. That comment sounds vaguely familiar... stay tuned!
Murphy's law is in effect over here. In the face of everything, we do the only reasonable thing: we persist at our best possible speed. And, we continually thank you for your patience.
The team at Shift Sight has gone quackers. We resemble ducks right now: utterly calm on the surface and paddling like mad underneath.
The story I want to tell you about Jade is coming together.
Thanks for stopping by tonight. There is no blog entry as we are devoting every hour to preparing for the reveal. Our resident artist has said that Jade's revised geometry is absolutely stunning. It looks nothing like the previously shown image on a table.
The countdown is live on the Jade page.
We hope you can join us on the 22nd! Like the Phoenix shown above, Jade is the rebirth of an inhumane, damaging industry.
You have been waiting a long time to hear more about Jade. The pieces of the puzzle are falling together, and the concept reveal is on the horizon. Shown above is a rough rendering of the back, subject to change. No peeking!
Patent applications have been filed, so tonight's post contains a few tidbits. The story (and renderings) are still getting the final polish.
Tonight’s post is a personal reflection. It is fitting, since every event that has unfolded up to now has led to the crucial moment that is fast approaching. Shift Sight is here because of care and concern. Enjoy a unique, free-written piece that unfolded [like us] with only grammatical editing. (The titles and quote were added later.)
