Okay, so I have this idea of building an enhanced darkroom timer for myself to control safe lights and the enlarger. Sounded simple enough at first, but if I wanted to turn it into a tangible product the BOM quickly skyrocketed. But I guess that’s part of the challenge. Maybe this could be a good first product for my yet to be founded company. :D


Generally speaking producing a product in the hundreds is fucking hard. I can hand assemble a few. Economy of scales allows me to mass produce cheaply, but making only a few hundred? Pain in the ass.
