The Lab-Box team has meanwhile learned a lesson: you need to keep your backers posted on the progress of your project.Continue reading “Lab-Box: another lesson in patience”
As I currently have a long article in the making which still needs some time to be finished I’ll just post a short update as the Lab-Box Kickstarter campaign informed all backers about its latest progress.
I don’t even want to comment much on this any more but apparently they need another month before they are even able to tell us the delivery date. I bet by then they will find a new excuse why it will take another year or so.
The Lab Box project has published a new blog post and they do no longer give a concrete delivery date about when they will ship the devices that were paid for almost 2 years ago.
Finally it looks like the Lab-Box Kickstarter project sees some real progress. The promised improvements are implemented (at least some of them) and the delivery date is still the same. Let’s hope they go on like this.

The Lab-Box project just posted a new timeline for their project: they now plan to deliver a whole 6 months later than they originally intended to do.
It still seems that this Kickstarter – as opposed to what I heard about so many other hardware projects on Kickstarter – will really deliver and maybe even be on time.
They sent two recent updates and I just wanted to point you to the latest one as it shows some progress in the development of the box.
I recently got notice of a neat Kickstarter project started by ars imago. They are a well known supporter of all things analog photography, they have a great online store and just some weeks ago they opened a small store here in Zurich. They have been developing a daylight-loading film tank which looks nice and is very promising.
If you develop your films at home (as I do) you probably have a developer tank already but I found the project promising enough to be supported – or at least ars imago’s engagement for keeping the film thing alive. So I spent a little money and hopefully will get a new toy by the end of the year.
I’ll keep you posted how it goes.
