    This is such a funny thread. almost 2 pages of people saying "I am in on buying Any Thing" We have no real clue what it really is, just MBI and Ti and we're ALL IN! LOL Total Flashlight Awesomeness. Makes me want to put a For Sale thread, "Mystery Ti flashlight, it's in 9 out of 10 condition $700". Wonder how long till you get a I'll take it??

    Maybe its a Ti Hand??

    Its based purely on our awe at Guy's innovation, originality and excellence in executing his ideas. We have utter belief that whatever he designs will come up trumps.
    We are all flotsam and jetsam being carried by a relentless tide towards our ultimate fate!

    We actually don't even know it's a light, just that it can make light. The Ti charger makes light, but isn't one...

    It's apparent that life will soon be impossible without these "things"! Get yours now! +1 "thing" for me!

    For <$50 I'm willing to gamble on it being cool. You could give me a shiny chunk of Ti with a some glow powder in it and I'd probably be happy with it. Lol. At $100, I might want to see it first.

    Thanks Str8stroke

    I do agree with you, and at first glance it's somewhat of a very crazy proposition

    I'm about to post a little more reasoning but to make it easy to track my posts, I'll do that in a new post shortly

    Thanks nbp [LOL]

    Not quite that (1,253) many but hopefully enough for a satisfying 1st batch

    Update:


    Thanks again for all the additional "I'm in" posts.
    Very, very, very much appreciated.


    A little more about whats up with this secret styled intro.....


    Deep in the other MBI threads, I had previously mentioned I considered a "prototype" club/membership of sorts where a limited number of supporters might be able to subscribe to purchase 1st run prototypes (with the idea being that I'd make a few extra prototypes at the early sample stage) so that whilst there may be some 1st batch weirdness, it would be a chance to play with and preview some cool "thing"s well before they become available and in some cases save eternities of waiting.


    The response, not too dissimilar to this thread was ultra positive which led me to mention the possibility with "thing" except that; as timing and details are rather critical, I do have to wait before I can disclose the details.


    Base on contracts in place, I expect the first titanium "Thing-O" machining samples to be in hand by ~November 15 and then the full trial batch by December 10-12.


    "Thing-E" circuitry is done and I'm now checking on components as spacing is very very precise for this one. Depending on how things go, I "might" be able to offer some "Thing-E"s too and my plan for trial batch of those would be to use 3D Printing (samples came out better than expected) as I know you will LOVE the format.


    After spending what seems like zillions of hours in 3D design, I've finished the all important mechanics for "Thing-Ultimate". As usual, when everything is small, getting everything to fit and ensuring it can be even machined was tricky but the mechanics are looking very close to done now.


    For now, the beta is 100% go for Thing-O and a good chance for a Thing-E (thingo & thingy). All are easily categorized as "Things" but the form factor is very different between Things.


    I'll post additional updates when available and thanks again for your support.

    My guess is Original, and maybe Electronic switch.

    I vote: You show No Pictures of a thing! Just show the things specs! Then ship them things out. That would make the whole thing really trick. Then when the thing comes in, and wife sees the box and says: "Whats in this thing", we (us married ones) can say, "I don't know, it's just some Thing"!

    Sounds fun! I don't have a wife, but I still like surprises. Sometimes I leave the flashlight in its shipper on the table for a little bit just to build suspense.

    Hehe...
    No worries there as I'm not planning on releasing any photos or even specs prior to shipping either "Thing-O, Thing-E".

    So you'll be able to confidently and honestly say you're buying some-thing, and you have no idea what it is (well maybe some idea)

    Guy,

    Are you accepting payment soon?

    I guess I'm not the only one who prefer to throw cash in and forget about it.
    Then someday, somehow, someone will be getting something it his/her mailbox and wonder where it came from.

    Hi eurypylus,

    Sorry, not just yet.
    Needing a little more time to finalize "what" will be in the sending plan.

    Thing-O: confirming Ti samples
    Thing-E: confirming PCB components

    Just a few weeks aways though.

    Hey Guy,

    Nice to see that you've settled in into your nice and cosy MBI Tribe Subforum. At long last. Sweet!

    Well, sure looks like this Thing is a runaway success... Even if most of us still have not figured out what it is. Yet.

    As always, if you're planning to make MBI goodies for sale. Make lots.
