GETTING READY FOR PRODUCTION

Certainly, one of the most rewarding aspects of the project was working out the manufacturing challenges shoulder-to-shoulder with our client  Dave Evans.  Before his life as Lytro's Design Director, Dave lived numerous incarnations as Product Designer (One&Co/HTC), Manufacturing Innovator (Apple), CAD surfacing specialist (One&Co/HTC), and prototyping mentor (Stanford University) - and this leaves out a multitude of several more adventures in product development Dave has tucked away in his resume.   The above picture attempts to show a set of stern faces as we were set on banging out the part breakup and fabrication plan for Illum.  I couldn't keep a stern face, working with these guys was just too much fun.
