Watch China stamp out a kickstarter project


Anyone who has backed a Kickstarter project will know the long wait and often delays that occur in production. One such project is ASTRO. The time-lapse camera controller unit was successfully funded in August of 2012 and backers are still waiting. When you see their latest update video, you can start to understand just how complex developing and producing a product can be.

Crowd sourced projects are often brand new ideas, meaning that when they’re sent of to China. These production runs require a tool up process, in this instance, they’re printing round PCB boards. It’s a stunning look inside the production that we rarely get to see.

Check out the video from ASTRO’s creator  below.
