The semiconductor crisis

Almost everyone is aware of the global supply crisis. It is not only electronics material that is already affected: supply problems are also affecting raw materials such as copper, silicon or plastics. At Eyesynth we are obviously suffering as well. It is a difficult time, but our fighting nature allows us to carry on. Some essential chips have disappeared from the market, and their manufacturers are announcing manufacturing delays of six months to a year. We have been forced to modify (yet again) numerous designs in our hardware to accommodate components that are in stock. The changes take time and money, but we have a strong conviction that we will get there.

If there is no wind, we will have to row.

First Impressions

First impressions about the tests

We have been testing with our users for almost two months now. In general, the results are very satisfactory. Even so, there are always some small details to be polished (thank you for your contribution to test the glasses!), which we are already working on.

The first tester has been our dear Mari Carmen Martínez, and she has left us a nice text of her impressions in the blog.

We continue step by step to reach the final stage of production.

We are getting closer…

Boxed prototype

Our Users are taking a prototype home

Today we reached an important goal for us: We are starting a new phase.

Starting today, we will send prototypes of our system to a group of test users. In the coming months, they will carry out long-term tests in their homes and outdoors. Thanks to their reports, we will have a clear idea of what needs to be improved or changed before we start final product production.

This is a great moment for us. We will keep you up to date.

Stay tuned!

Maricarmen Christmas 2020

The end of 2020

The year 2020 is over.

A difficult year for some, terrible for others; strange and complex for all.

At Eyesynth we are fortunate to be still standing and moving forward.

We would like our last post of this 2020 to be made by a very special person for us: Mari Carmen Martínez Bru. In case you don’t know her, we recommend you to see her in this link.

We leave you with her words, and wishing you a 2021 of hope and prosperity.

 

Time passed and in despite of this… Christmas arrived, a strange Christmas without songs, lights or reunions to enjoy…

Concluding a new year; a strange year … We were robbed of kisses, hugs and sometimes… loved ones. But here we are, standing ready to go on. Eyesynth, working. Me… dreaming.

In these days of silent laughter, shy carols, silent kisses that travel fast as we never imagined love could fly… In these days when we learned to embrace with our eyes, to kiss with our words and to love in the distance with the union of the heart… In these grey days, … but full of emotion … we extend our arms in the form of a message and we thank everyone, those who were, those who are and those who will come to support our project, …my dream.

Eyesynth continues, after all. With all my support, fighting together as a team, doing my part which is simply to dream and allow others to dream my dreams.

Christmas is here. And my wish this year is, like almost all of us, that the little enemy who destroys our lives will go away forever and ever… and secondly, if the Christmas Elf allows me to wish more, I wish with all my soul… that all of you who are excited about my dream, about Eyesynth’s dream, do not stop dreaming… I want to fly beyond, and if you want it… do not forget… we will fly even further…

Storm

We’re still on track

Hello to all our friends.

This 2020 has begun in a really difficult way. We hope you’ll forgive us for the silence we’ve had this time. Like so many others, we have been immersed in the Covid-19 storm. Trying to help and survive. By helping, we have put a lot of time and effort into printing 3D respirator valves and other tools needed to help the Healthcare workers in their incredible job; by surviving we have had to face suppliers with problems, manufacturers who no longer make necessary components for our glasses… adapting our designs and fitting everything back in order to continue. The Covid has also reached out to individuals and families in our team. Fortunately, they are recovered and again ready to continue.

This storm has affected our internal activity, communication and social networks.

We hope you understand the circumstances.

In any case, we are happy to tell you that we are moving forward! Right now we have blind people in mind more than ever: Their courage, tenacity and self-improvement give us the strength to stand up and continue.

Thank you.

Eyesynth goes on.

Happy 2020

We bid farewell to 2019, a year of great challenges (and also difficulties that we have been overcoming little by little). We have concluded the project with the European Commission, to which we are eternally grateful for their exceptional support. They have helped us to complete an extremely complex process, the industrialisation phase. Now, flying solo, we are still immersed in the manufacturing process. We are aware that we did not reach the speed we would like in this process; we are still a small StartUp. From here we want to give thanks and a big hug to all those people who still trust us. Thank you for your patience and the encouragement you give us. Together we will complete this project.
We are sure that 2020 will be a good year.
From Eyesynth we wish you a happy 2020, full of health and prosperity.
The Eyesynth Team
