26 May The Linky App
Did you have a good week? We’re getting more excited each day, as we’re working on the final stages of various parts in order to get ready for you to use Linky!
First of all, we’d like to ask everyone who has pre-ordered a Linky on Indiegogo, to let us know which mobile phone you’re using. You can let us know via this link, it will only take a few seconds and it would be a great help for us!
In line with that, Giovanni and the firmware development team have been working on the Bluetooth connection between the remote controller and the Linky mobile app. The app allows you to select riding modes, check the battery status and your trip stats, but it’s also how you will automatically receive new firmware updates for the motor controller!
We expect to need one or two more weeks to get the firmware ready and after that we’ll start working on the UI design.
Florence Trip to Lorenzo de’ Medici Insititute.
With more than 40 years of experience, the Lorenzo De Medici Institute is one of the highest recognized and most popular institutes for students to gain experience abroad as part of their education. We made a trip to Florence to give a presentation to the design students about what it’s like to build a startup company. Not only gave this a chance for us to inspire the next generation, but of course this was also a way to introduce Linky to new people!
After the presentation, obviously it was time to give Linky a try. The students had lots of fun testing Linky at the wonderful Piazza San Lorenzo in Florence, or Firenze, as we Italians like to call it 🙂
That’s all for this week. Enjoy your weekend and we’ll see you next week!
