We are very close to our final design, and now focused on testing in as many ways as possible. We headed back to the science lab again, and confirmed that by applying leverage, UnbuckleMe reduces the force required to release the buckle by an average of 57%. We are thrilled to validate that our design improvements have maintained the same level of performance as our early prototypes.
In other news, we have started to receive feedback from our product testers across the country. One tester said she was “impressed with how little effort it took to release the buckle!” We have also received a few ideas for improvement, which are much appreciated! We are sending out another round of samples to additional testers today, so we look forward to hearing more feedback, and working through our final tweaks before bringing UnbuckleMe to you. Yay!
