Short Circuiting Battery Problem

Hi Reader, Summary The most recent manufacturing run of Mooshimeters has battery contacts that weren’t deburred properly.  This has created a very frustrating problem where the burr (rough edge) of the battery contact cuts through the label of the AA battery, short circuiting the battery and causing it to heat up.  It’s not a fire hazard but it’s […]

Expanded Wiki Documentation

Hi Reader, Last week Electronic Systems Inc. started their first manufacturing run of the Mooshimeter, and I was on site to support and help transfer some of the unwritten knowledge that goes with a new product.  I’ll write a post about that visit soon, but for now suffice it to say I came away very impressed.

Firmware Update

Dear Reader, Very quick update for something that’s been a lot of work:  you’ll find a new version of the Android App available for download in the Google Play Store.  A new version of the iOS app is awaiting Apple approval (but has been released to the beta group).  The app itself is almost identical, […]

We need your help: Call for testimonials!

Dear Reader, I designed the first Mooshimeter prototype in April of 2013. In the last 2 years it’s gone from idea to crowdfunding project to 1700 Mooshimeters in the wild. The feedback has been good and for the past few weeks I’ve been getting everything lined up for another production run. Nothing sells a product […]
