I just sent off OpenGlow Prototype v2 to the board house, and I’m turning my attention to the head.
Rather than spend a enormous amount of time reverse engineering the existing design, I’m going to create a replacement.
Why? Well, the original design has some serious problems. The limited focus range/resolution being the biggest.
I’m thinking of taking one of the following approaches:
- Option 1: A simple drop-in replacement for the factory head PCB. This will resolve the focus resolution issue. By just making a replacement board, I’ll be able to fast track the dev process.
- Option 2 : A complete replacement head design. This will solve both the range and resolution issue, plus open up a bunch of other possibilities.
- Option 3: ?
- Option 4: Some combination of the above.
