I think it may improve because I can pot it in such a way as to have lots more surface area and the potting compound it more heat conductive than air so the heat will move to the potting compound and then air cool. The device is only consuming 2 watts though. About the same as a cell phone transmitting voice. As such, even the worst case scenario is not that bad.

New parts arriving

All the new components are present and accounted for. The new PCBs ship DHL from China on Monday. The next prototype will be with us before we know it.

There is no reason why the Kickstarter needs to wait until the "final" prototype is complete. The Kickstarter just requires a bit more spit and polish than a scientist and an engineer (lonestrom and I) ooze from our pores. I promise y'all, it is a high priority to get these into the hands of any interested parties. It will happen, just give us time to make it look sexy.

Great work guys, I'm really looking forward to this one. Definitely a new paradigm in electronic control on a motorbike. I think we'll see the big guys doing this with their on-bard computer systems in a few years.
You guys are to electronics what John Britten was to bikes with his Britten V1000 back in '91.

Software Update

In this video I show off the new ignition state sensing trigger and other output setup features (including output modulation) via an iPhone.

The signal inputs are now fully programmable. Damn gang, we are close! I've hired a guy to help out with the Kickstarter stuff so that will should speed up a bit too.

This project has . . . well blown me away.

Hence a question that may have been covered or maybe a little stupid . . . but......

Its in regard to roadbook switches. At the moment some units use a momentary switch that reverses the electrical motor from running the roadbook in both directions. Some people change over to a button system or some may even come with such a system. But such a button system requires 2 buttons.

With your fuse block is it possible to configure it so that a constant button push would drive a roadbook in one direction (1+seconds held down) and then reverse if the button was on/off pressed for less than one second?

The reason for the question is sometimes fitting that standard switch gear and other controls for roadbooks etc can take up a lot of space on the bars. If one button could do both then maybe it may eliminate the extra parts. Obviously this fuse block has many uses just wondering if it could be configured to also do this, or even if it already could be configured to do this?

I think you guys have done an incredible job on this. But the mind boggles... In the end, it's a fuse... I see an article in the making in HBR titled:"Scope creep, an analysis"
