Progress is slow but consistent. No pricing or timeline yet but, we’re getting down to the final strokes.
Assembly Instruction Manual
The manufacturer is reluctant to give the final quote until they know “Everything”. That includes the last manufactured component “The User Assembly Manual”.
Work on this has been slower then expected. This work is in my shoulders but I keep having to stomp on other fires. Gurrr…
The final round of manufacturing equivalent parts jut came in. There seem to be a few fit and finish issues. It takes a bit of testing a research to figure out if this is a prototype issue or a design issue. We’re working through it.
When done, we’ll be ready to show the manufacturing equivalent XOOT Prototype. Stay tuned.
Braking System Patent
We make the screen very easy to move. This comes with a down side. You don’t want the screen moving when you draw on it. To solve this I created an Electromagnetic Braking System.
The United States patent office grated a patent for this invention. This just adds to the unique set of features that make the XOOT system different for all other monitor arms.
Looking for Reviewers:
(Reviewers based in the USA)
Once again. We’re putting together 2 demo ready prototypes. These prototypes will not be exactly identical with the final production units but will have the all features of final units.
As a reviewer you’ll set up the XOOT system and use it few weeks. When the review time is up, you’ll put it back in the box it and request a pickup. We’ll take care of the shipping.
During or after your experience with the XOOT system, share your honest thoughts about it, either with a short video or a blog post. Let others know what to expect.
Our preference is for reviewers that have spent a lot of time working on a drawing screen.

I know that progress seems maddeningly slow, but we are nothing if not determined to get this product to market.
Thanks everyone for your interest in the XOOT system.
