    Default The EOS (Concept & Photos of a Prototype) - Titan Slayer?

    Time to show our (Lumencraft's) next creation (so far only a prototype and concept).

    Kyle and I looked at the Titan and we just thought we can do better than that... so as a result the EOS was born (we first wanted to call it Titan Slayer but than decided to pick a goddess known to have seduced Titans...)


    First the specs... (by the way ignore the price.. we don't know what price it will be... except one thing that it WILL be less than the titan..

    However Remember so far only a concept and a prototype... So far we also have plans (which might even happen first) to do a non bling - no sapphires - black HA aircraft grade T6 AL version... with a much lower price point...














    Anyway that's the current state of this light (of course patent pending). Also I like that it is very different than our GatLight so one doesn't really replace the other...

    Your thoughts?

    Nice concept. I would hope for one without the stones and Titanium - just one in T6061 since I'm sure I won't be able to afford a Ti light anytime soon. The sapphires are a nice touch though that I imagine some people will go for. Bling bling !

    We're thinking about doing a no bling black HA version...

    However the bling has cool effects at night

    Looks great in night shots! I actually thought of having a light with lateral illumination.

    I agree an affordable one done in 6061 for those who can't spend the money for Titanium let alone a Titan.

    WOW!! Very nice! Can't wait to see the final product.
    I'd rather have it and not need it than need it and not have it.

    I'd like to see one without stones and without the side light ???
    I like the idea of the push button and the momentary function, more lumens is also a plus
    Looking forward to the final product

    No stones. They look flashy but would reduce the usefulness of the light.

    Nice looking prototype.

    I love the design exactly as you have it now with the Sapphires and made from Ti.

    Awesome!

    Very nice design!

    I am in for a version without stones and with a reflector instead of an optic

    I think the sapphires are really kind of cool - and I know you guys probably went through a lot of work figuring out how to get them in there, which I appreciate! It's always cool to see new and interesting lighting tools show up.

    That said, while I certainly don't hate the stones, I guess I am scratching my head a little. In a high-polish finish (Maybe with some black highlighting on the body?) the light could be sold as a really serious "executive" style light - maybe for Mrs. Executive?

    I really think it's a cool concept and looks great, but I have to admit I'm still saving for a Gatlight V3 as my LumenCraft artwork for this go-round. I'm sure this has a market, and I hope you guys nail it like you have with everything else!

    Thanks for keeping us in the loop, guys. You rock!

    Looks good, but i am not sure about the stones. I would be afraid to take it anywher or use it too hard. Plain Ti, maybe with 3 H3 vials around it, would suit me down to the ground. Paypal is locked and loaded!!

    This WILL make me reconsider my place on the Titan list.

    The white sapphires are a little too bling for me also, but if you could replace with deep set, well protected tritiums you have a guarenteed punter. If there was a bling pocket clip with a mounted sapphire I guess I could learn to live with that!


    The initial shape and design looks magic, I love the dial at the rear and I think you might have hit on a real winner. Please put me on whatever list there is that will make sure I get one of these.

    Great to see inspirational and innovative products. Great Job!

    Paypal at the ready

    I would be all over this. The ONLY thing that stopped me from buying a Titan was the CR2 battery.

    I would pay for one of those.May i suggest on a more affordable model some sort of GITD inserts thin enough for light to pass throught but glow after it's turned off.

    So ... you're opting for a path that LedLenser has taken some years ago with the laterally emitting light shinging through holes?

    I am talking about this, being one example out of many:



    They might hold patents or trademarks or whatwever legal thing regarding those holes ... they are, after all, LedLenser's character marks.


    Then ... from personal experience ... those holes with the side-emitting light ... are annoying and not helpful. They are blinding you and can't add anything useful to the task of illumination. Might be even worse if the lateral light is scattered by crystals.
    I wouldn't consider them an advantage at all, except for design and style maybe, if that's what you're after.

    There is a type of perfection that transcends the quest for lumens. Buying a $250 1-cell light for "lum factor" is like buying a $250 single malt Scotch for the alcohol content.

    The only practical application for side lighting through holes I can think of would be on a bike light or as a road side pedestrian.

    Walter... I'm moving this thread to the Custom Builders & Modders forum per our discussion as to where your future products and projects should be listed on CPF seeing as how you declined having your own sub-forum at this time.

    Forget the bling, keep it simple and elegant. Less stuff to go wrong later on.

    drool award on this one, mobile1

    the Titan is so much of a rarity that if theres a light that can do what it does [titanium or not] and passes the reviewers on this site it is foreseeable that the light will sell like hotcakes for sometime to come

    Since the circumference holes having been previously used on an already marketed torch was brought up...what about the name EOS? Princeton Tec used that on a headlamp...

    I suppose it's hard to pick out something that hasn't been used somewhere already. I would want something unique to my own product so as not to confuse folks.

    The body of the light needs some work. It looks too plain and lacking details. Lose the optics and put a reflector in there.

    This one is too close to call for me. We'll have to see it around the neck of a beautiful model before I can offer any relevant comments.
