We would like to give you a better understanding of where we are regarding effie’s development, and so thought we would publicly share the information from our latest update email to our mailing list, and so here it is!
One of the most notable developments that we have achieved with effie so far is that, for the first time, we have created a machine able to iron all of the different styles of shirts! We have been working incredibly hard to ensure that effie is able to iron as many different shirt sizes, cuts, shapes, materials and colours as possible, without you, the user, having to tell it what you’ve put into it. If you think about the number of actions you currently have to perform to iron a shirt, you’ll start to realise what a huge step this is for us! Check out the photo above for a before and after comparison of effie’s current ironing abilities.
Following on from this, we are now working hard to make effie able to iron other items of clothing, such as trousers. To do this, we’ll be expanding the capabilities of the same mechanism used to iron the shirts; improving and refining it so that effie is able to iron as many different items as possible, but without impacting its performance on the shirts. We’ll keep you up to date with how we get on!
As a part of the development process, each time we make a new prototype, we deliberately change the look of effie so that we can keep on testing different designs. Take a look at the image below to see how much has changed since our original prototype! This therefore means that it will look slightly different to the designs that you’ve seen in promotional content previously. In any of our posts, we would love for you to share any thoughts that you have on how effie looks, and improvements you would like to see, as well as what you like already!
Keep an eye on our social media pages (Facebook, Twitter and Instagram) where we’ll be posting some photos with our latest developments, as well as doing some polls to get your input into what you want from your effie device.
Finally, on a separate note, we have been thinking for a while about how we can give those of you that want to be more involved in the company the opportunity to do so, and so have decided to give members of our community the chance to invest directly as part of our next funding round. We want you all to help us shape effie into the perfect product for your lives, and we hope this will give you the platform to do so. If you are on our mailing list, please look out for another email outlining how you can participate if you so wish.
