We have had a very busy month placing all the components on our first round of PCBs for our BeagleBone Black cape. As expected, we ran into a number of issues and bugs on the first round but so far nothing that we haven't been able to address. We are getting close to sending out the next rev of boards to be made which should have the functionality to continue our machine testing.
Here's a snapshot of one of our fully assembled Beta 2.0s:
We also had the opportunity to travel to NYC to participate in the Blackstone LaunchPad Demo Day along with 20 other ventures from universities around the nation. We had the opportunity to have a cocktail hour on the floor of the New York Stock Exchange and get our picture taken with the opening bell (see below). We learned a lot over the couple days we were there and were excited to get back home to keep moving on Pocket NC.
