Almost there!

By Nadia El-Hindi May 30, 2019 Discover AKANE project

Hello everyone !

What an intense week for the Chic participants ! For those who don’t know, this week we had to present our project one last time before China.
Zhuzhu team had a great prototyping time before this moment. We finally managed to assemble the owl plant that is now composted by 3 sticks with 3 fabric leaves and all the PCB and motors at it’s base. The movement isn’t perfect yet but it’s an encouraging start! This prototype showed us some other imperfections and adjustments: the size of the leaves, their angle, some small modifications on the two PCB’s, the shape of the base.
We still have lot of work to do because… D-day is almost there! On top of our common technical challenges we have been dealing with the organization of our trip such as obtaining chinese visas and other stuff ! Can’t realize how close the end is!

Enjoy your week-end!
Zhuzhu team
