So if you haven't already caught the news that Ambionics has merged with glaze prosthetics then here it is!
The private company (Ambionics International Limited) is closing down and all of the IP and design rights are being transferred to Glaze. HOWEVER the equipment, website and domain and this channel will be transferred to the (currently dormant) non-profit company that I originally set up to help Sol - Ambionics Limited. This channel will now be run as part of a non profit network including Ambionics Ecuador and our Academic partners here in the UK.
The soon-to-launch Design Engineering Focus Group will provide access to 3D files (with the blessing of Glaze Prosthetics) at the All Star tier (3). This enables Ambionics to process a single $25 payment from subscribers who can then remain at tier 3 or move to a different tier. Members will continue to have access to the focus group as long as their subscription continues. The $25 is simply to cover the cost of admin which will be done in the first week of each month. (Proof of identity, address and agreement to Ambionics' terms and conditions is required).
A new scanning video will be produced this month too using the kinect and structure sensors (with iPad and PC). I will aim for the last day of the month but it is going to be a very busy month! Apologies in advance if this is a few days late. The announcement on the glaze Facebook page went of REALLY well. Masses of interest and tonnes of inquiries.
Kate and I are flying out to Poland in May with the boys to meet the team and attend a special event they are planning with the winning contestants. Of course the whole thing will be shared with our subscribers here as a fly on the wall episode. This will be a GREAT few months!
Having the stability and guaranteed income from the merger with Glaze is hugely beneficial to this channel. We have a great agreement with them - they fully support what we are doing here together. Things are looking better than they have ever done before :)
