A new AXIOM Beta prototyping hardware generation is here and we want to provide insight into all the technical details. We show each PCB in the stack up and what changed from the early plans to where we are today, what additions are still pending and what each board is doing in full OSHPark purple technicolor.
We admit it. It is confusing: Why are we developing the AXIOM Beta and its supposed "successor" the AXIOM Gamma at the same time? Behold our thorough explanation in the video: The AXIOM Beta is now something different, something independent, it's better, it's more modular and flexible. It's not the predecessor of the AXIOM Gamma anymore, the AXIOM Beta is here to stay. In the video we explain the details of the strategy realignment and what it means for crowd funding backers.
We explain the 3 Phase Payment concept we came up with to transfer funds for the AXIOM Beta at-cost units only when the money is actually needed to purchase parts or order hardware. In a recent survey this concept was widely approved and the desire to purchase accessories in bulk was raised. We will investigate these possibilities but have to mention that we are currently entirely focused on the AXIOM Beta development and production and are also not an established gear re-seller.
