intracube
if the price difference between components for 100 and 500 units is less than 10%, does it make sense to chase 500?
17:46
intracube
how much time/resources would be diverted from development to building the extra cameras?
17:46
intracube
and would it be worth it at this point?
17:46
intracube
is thinking aloud
17:47
Bertl
at a price difference of 10% I think it wouldn't be worth chasing it
17:47
intracube
Bertl: that's what the spreadsheet seems to show
17:48
intracube
I voted for re-negotiate lower volumes if <500 people are interested in pre-ordering the components
17:48
intracube
rather than attract more backers
17:49
intracube
but the price diff between 10 to 100 is almost halved
17:50
Bertl
would be my preference as well, but we'll have to see what the backers think
17:50
intracube
yep
17:51
Bertl
for us, there is not much difference between 100 and 500 Betas
17:51
intracube
you mean time construction/workload?
17:52
Bertl
in both cases we have to outsource the production and we won't make any money there either
17:52
intracube
ah ok
17:52
Bertl
so probably 100 pcs are simpler (for us) than 500 pcs
17:52
Bertl
final testing, packaging, shipping, etc
17:54
Bertl
I'm a little disappoited that we obviously didn't reach many developers, otherwise the number of requested Early Betas would be much higher
17:54
intracube
also providing support & help for ~100 early adopters would be easier
17:54
Bertl
*disappointed
17:55
Bertl
but OTOH, it also makes our work simpler
