Some of you may have noticed we went a bit quiet over the last month or so around here - well, we had our reasons The development of the original noPhoto was exciting - for the first time, we brought worldwide attention to the idea of active photo enforcement countermeasures. It was also our first product as a company, and was partially the result of a crowdfunding campaign, with all of the positives and negatives that go along with that. Thanks to the success of the original noPhoto, things have changed a bit at noLimits. Over the last few months, we have had the opportunity to improve on not only our core technology, but on every other aspect of the product as well. Rather than a simple revision, this latest generation of the noPhoto is really an entirely new and further advanced product. There are a couple of things to keep in mind - unlike last time, we are not going to commit to any hard deadlines for shipping the product. We are also not going to take pre-orders in advance of us having inventory in-stock. This thread is not the sales announcement, but rather a way for us to give you a look at what we are working on. There are certain questions I may not be able to answer, so I apologize in advance of that. Over the next couple of weeks we will be updating the website rather comprehensively, but I wanted to give you guys and girls on the forum an early look. As a way to kick-off the public unveiling, we thought it would be fun to sponsor Rally North America: http://www.rallynorthamerica.com. Keep an eye on our Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/pages/NoLimits-Enterprises/310220202418876) for pictures and live updates from the event. This rally is VERY intensive driving and time-wise, but we plan on trying to update every night at least a little bit. You are welcome to meet us at the checkpoints and take a look at the unit in-person if you can! As I mentioned previously, this new unit is significantly different from the old unit. The idea was to take the basic core technology and push it even further, while focusing more on the entire package. There are a lot of things that we learned from the original unit that we were able to leverage during the design and manufacturing process of the new one! 1. The unit is made and assembled in the United States. It is engineered in Cincinnati, OH, and manufactured and assembled in Indiana by an Ohio-based company. We have switched manufacturers to a Tier 1 automotive OEM supplier and have developed a custom QC and auditing process that utilizes materials samples and analysis, environmental chamber testing, vibration and drop testing, as well as a human component for final review. Every single unit will be submersion-tested before leaving the assembly line. 2. Vehicle compatibility is upwards of 95%. The unit can be installed on the top of bottom of the license plate, and only protrudes .26in above or below the license plate. If you have .26 inches either above or below your license plate, the noPhoto will fit. 3. The noPhoto is now internationally compatible. The unit can be affixed to international plates with simple 3m tape or with a mounting system we will sell to adapt the holes. 4. Performance is improved greatly. We have dramatically increased the sophistication of the flash detection circuit to more than triple direct sunlight performance, while keeping the great filtering that we were previously known for. Brightness has been increased as well. The flash has been moved to the center of the plate to eliminate possible issues with two or three character plates. 5. A wireless chipset is onboard every noPhoto and there will be an iPhone and Android application. It will allow firmware updates in the field, encounter history, on/off control, etc. 6. There will be a physical remote display/control unit that we will sell. It will connect via bluetooth to the noPhoto and be hardwired into the car. 7. The new noPhoto is significantly smaller, lighter, thinner, and less obtrusive than the previous generation. 8. The noPhoto Pro and noPhoto base lines will cease to exist - the new noPhoto will be the only unit we sell. Attached are some pictures of a prototype that is nearly production ready. There are a few differences from this to the retail unit (lenses will probably be an IR transmitting black material, the production unit is ultrasonically welded instead of assembled with screws, etc), but it is dead-on in terms of dimension and overall look. Your feedback is welcome - along with any suggestions, comments, or criticisms that you may have. Thanks for being patient while we kept this under wraps over the last couple of months, and we look forward to the new noPhoto protecting drivers the world over.
