Not at all. We’ve released Brilliant Pebbles with the bare minimum of features to make absolutely sure we can deliver on our promises. However, the hardware is actually capable of quite a bit more – the pressure sensor in Brilliant Pebbles is actually 2 generations ahead of most competitor altimeters!
So we have built in to Brilliant Pebbles and its software the ability to update over the internet. First, some terminology to clarify:
- The software that runs on your computer, phone, or tablet. Provides an interface to the audible. Improvements may include making interface more user-friendly and adding buttons to access to more features on the device.
- The code that runs on the audible itself. Improvements may include battery optimisation, accuracy, and other device behaviour.
We have designed the entire system to be able to update *both* the app and the firmware over the internet, so that people who have already bought Brilliant Pebbles don’t miss out on improvements we make to it later on – isn’t that amazing value for money?
We’re committed to delivering an entire ecosystem for skydiving based on the latest technology. The last generation of skydiving altimeters was created when the internet was still in its infancy, when smartphones didn’t exist. AO(N²) will lay the foundations of a new way to connect your digital life with your passion for skydiving.
So if you already have a Brilliant Pebble, you’ll be glad to know that we’ve already released an update for our app, and a firmware update for all Brilliant Pebbles will be coming in the next few weeks – we’re test jumping it right now!
The best thing is, you don’t have to keep checking our website if there’s an update available – the software will inform you automatically when you connect your audible. So keep jumping, blue skies!
