What the heck has been going on with Jellypods?

So you are probably wondering what the heck has been going on with Jellypods, right? Well, despite the long radio silence there has been progress.

We are now on prototype IV, with new zipper designs, rails and materials.

Here’s a shot of the new zipper slider:

The new zipper solves many of the issues we saw in the earlier prototypes and also contains a couple of really unique features in the design – they won’t be obvious form this angle as they are internal, but they are quite cool from a technical standpoint.

It’s taken a while to get to this stage, but we are finally making some progress towards a working zipper and a Jellypod that does what we want. The drawings have been sent to Guangzhuo for the next production steps, hopefully a new update will be available soon – keep watching!
