For weeks now, we have been working day and night, screwing and bolting, and we have started all over more than once to finalise it: the pre-series prototype. We have now achieved this milestone.
The carbon fibre parts from our hydraulic press shimmer in the sun, the aluminium from the 3d printer feels cold and rough in the hand. These are the real materials that the prototype is made from. In short, we did everything that constitutes rapid prototyping.
And then the moment came when we turned it on for the first time. The first step on the UrmO, it beeps and then it gives a slight jolt: it drives off. Success!
In the weeks to come, we will finely tune the steering, to shoot video footage for the crowdfunding campaign. The Kickstarter campaign will go live on 08 October.
