Adrian leaves

Jan. 2020

Adrian leaves the team. As written before, this decision had been openly discussed with all the members for a long time. I (Hannes) decide to continue the project on my own, of course with the support of Matthias, Thomas, Björn and recently Esden.

The 2 years together in the project went through ups and downs and showed me a lot and I learned a lot. Many thanks Adrian at this point. I am very happy that our friendship has remained.

Introduction Esden

Introduction Esden

Esden is an excellent PCB and software developer. With his company 1bitsquared he executes hardware and software design, development and manufacturing for a wide range of tools for embedded systems.

He also runs a youtube channel and recently started showing his work to his audience on twitch.

After Esden discovered our cube on twitter he develops his own but with the smaller P2 panels. Since that time we have been helping each other in our projects. Since the beginning of 2020 we have been actively working together.

Founding a company

Founding a company

Feb. 2020

The starting signal is given to found a company. The plan is for the three of us (Björn, Matthias and Hannes) to start the company, apply for a grant and if approved, quit our jobs and work full time on the project. A lot of organizational things come into play. Grant applications, a kanban board, project management structures, ... with the increasing bureaucracy, the development progress is stagnating.

Mar. 2020

Björn decides to concentrate on his Master studies and will therefore do less for the project and not co-found the company. Matthias has also decided against co-founding the company but continues to support the project. For me alone, the chances of getting a grant as a single founder are close to zero, which is why I continue to develop the cube in my spare time.

And from now on I am again looking again for progammers who want to help me out with the project. So if you are interessted, please let me know :)

Due to the Corona virus, all conventions and events where we would have liked to present the Cube are cancelled. But that opens up time to construct new stuff or to add a story to our website.
