Optio Fuel now shipping!
Well, last week was a big one for us at Interactio. We not only got our app approved for the Apple App Store (https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/interactio-smart-boat/id1095924622?ls=1&mt=8) but we also shipped our first Optio Fuel units!
After months of development and testing we are finally ramping up for production and have begun to shift from design to manufacturing. Everything is designed and assembled in Canada and sourced as locally as possible.
We had very good test results on out test boats and beta users boats. We had no major issues with the design which was nice, as usually changes are necessary. The main adjustments were in the software - both the firmware and app have been tunes to produce the best optimization algorithms we feel are possible with technology today.
For me personally this major milestone brings to fruition a dream I have 2 years ago. Over the last couple of months I have been able to cruise around southwestern British Columbia with my iPhone in my hand running the Interactio Smart Boat App and see accurately what my fuel flow is, what my range is and most important what optimal speed I should be running at. This was an idea that was in my head and is now reality!
Thanks to everyone involved in the process thus far. Next stop... Interactio Hub!
