1st. Prototype of Soundsnap has arrived.
The first prototype of Soundsnap has arrived, and as expected works really well. I am currently thinking of adding an extra 0.5 mm to the thickness, primarily because I want to be able to use it without fearing it will break. This is a 3D print however, so it might affect my judgement of the quality and sturdiness of the product. I printed the model at Shapeways. Excellent lead time, and nice quality of the product.
The prototype works in terms of fit (it fits snugly onto the iPad 2). I do wish that it would be even more fixed, which I suspect could be corrected with some small bumps or a material change to some kind of soft coat. However, it works with Smart Cover, and you can use the sync cable as well, while the Soundsnap is on. It also moves the sound to the front of the device, as it was intended 😀
