The Submarine is away!

After three years of design and development, finding manufacturing partners, learning all kinds of new skills in order to make this happen, the first batch is away! It would not have been possible without all the help from everyone involved in the crowdfunding, all those who pre-ordered and the countless others who put their trust and belief in this project and in me. Thank you all! I could not have done it without you!

This was me a few days ago taking the first load to the post office. It was a very good day

going round in circles : Coil manufacture

It has been a rollercoaster of a time. I thought it a good idea to start a 'News' page to keep you up to date with developments. We have come up against some very tricky problems with the coils that sit inside the ‘nose’ of the Submarine. I’m enormously relieved to say they have now all been solved. However there are some repercussions

We’ve been in constant contact with our supplier of these minute coils over the last few months. More times than I care to mention we’ve had to return samples when they have not performed as expected. In addition we’ve been through two total redesigns of the inner workings of the Submarine, fine tuning sometimes to hundredths of a millimetre.

I am pleased to announce that we have finally solved these problems. However as you may be aware this stage of the process has taken much longer than initially planned. It is of the utmost importance to me that the Submarine functions perfectly and making sure these minute parts are perfect is paramount. I would far rather you receive a great but late Submarine rather than an on-time shoddy one.

Those of you who have backed the Ulule campaign or pre-ordered should have already received an email. Please let me know if this is not the case.

I’m so sorry to say that the Submarine will not be with you in December. Shipping is now likely to be February at the very latest. I know all of you are very keen to get your hands on one and believe me I really am doing everything I can to get it to you as quickly as possible. 

All the very best
