I heard back from Rajan who is the product manager for the Embrace Infant Warmer (if you need to catch up, see part one and part two). He sent me a selection of photos of the latest prototype. As you’ll see, the product’s development has become much more complex.
Our challenge to improve the warmer continues -such that I’m going to sweeten the pot on this one. I will be awarding a prize for suggestions that are incorporated into the product. In the event of two or more winners, we’ll draw names (I arbitrarily select Alison as the official judge). The winner can pick one of three books -all are new. The possible prizes are Handford’s Grading Book, Pattern Magic 1 or Pattern Magic 2.
Keep in mind that once product features become more robust -as these have-, the challenge becomes one of simplification with the goal of containing costs without sacrificing features. I’ll drop the photos below and leave links to the larger file versions at close. Your suggestions are welcome.
Rajan asked me to take down the hi-res photos from the public side so you can find them here in the forum.
