It’s been a while since we’ve last shown some Aeris updates! Over the past month, we added a new member onto our team, Yufay, who’s been working on the mechanical design. Our team shrunk down the size of Aeris so that it’s more portable and easier to hold. Yufay’s been creating a product that can be manufactured (since we can’t 3D print forever), so that we can have Aeris in the hands of many more families.
In the meantime, our design interns from CCA, Dustin Le and Kevin Yeung, have been hard at work brainstorming ways to make Aeris a more delightful experience. Since we’re adding RGB LEDs onto our device, you can even chose the color you’d want Aeris to light up!
We care about every part of Aeris, since we believe that it’s the tiny details within our work that add pleasure to your experience.
On the app side, we noticed kids having trouble holding both the device and phone at the same time, so did a quick fix by changing the display from landscape to portrait view. Since some had trouble learning the proper technique, we’ve added video tutorials so it’s simpler to follow along!
We’ll be making some major UI/UX changes before starting our second testing period with some more Aeris Visionaires in two weeks!
