I’m not much of a social network guy. It’s true that I’d like to have a little more time for them. However, we are closing the year and I’m going to take a few seconds to reflect and share something that I think is beautiful.
Mari Carmen Martínez, a tester of our system (and at this point a good friend), some time ago wrote us a text with her impressions of her journey with us. As we read it, the whole team was absolutely thrilled by its depth. In a way, her reflections and conclusions are for us one of the most important milestones of our work: to see that beyond technique, challenges and engineering, our work has meaning in other people’s lives. And what impresses us most is that it not only serves to assist in daily life; it also serves to enlighten, to plan new things and even to dream.
Mari Carmen’s text is full of feelings, realities, desires and also images. That’s why, after reading it, we realized that we had to show it and dress it properly. We recorded images, put on music, and Mari Carmen gave the voice. So, the magic and the feeling that emanate from the video are thanks to her. And also to her family, a group of fantastic people that we have had the pleasure of meeting.
I would also like to thank our friends from MySweet, a wonderful place where they gave us all the facilities (and good coffee) to record Mari Carmen.
2018 has been a complex year, sometimes complicated, but above all intense. And we are very proud to have it summarized it in a video like Mari Carmen´s.
I’d like to send a very strong hug to each and every one of the people who have helped us this year: testers, friends, partners, members, anonymous people who send us messages of support, suppliers, colleagues, and especially to all those who with infinite patience are still waiting for us to bring the glasses to the stores.
2019 is going to be a good year, and we can’t wait to start it.
