Terra Boxes & Special Editions!

Quick Facts

All about the new Terra boxes, special editions, the demo apps in the app stores, and a new web-app which is in design now!

This is a CAD image of the Terra boxes which are bring printed now in preparation for the first 100 Terra units being shipped out!

As you can see, there has been quite some thought and preparation put into the internal die cut which safely holds the Terra equipment. 

These first 100 are in a Special Edition Teal on a kraft box, which has been chosen for it's eco-friendliness.

Shipments are going out in the order of earliest orders made of course, so our early supporters will receive the Teal boxes.

For future boxes we have a surprise Pantone colour on the outside! - and once the first 100 have gone out, manufacturing and shipping is stepping up to several hundred units per week. 

 

The Terra Demo Apps in app stores now

Both apps have been out for some time and demonstrate the functionality

You can download the apps here:

Android app - terralistens.click/android

Ios (Apple) app - terralistens.click/ios

For the product send outs we're also launching a new app which helps you get your Terra connected to your wifi and listen to your sound stream. The demo app functionalities will then be quickly brought over into the connection app, and built upon. 

 

Terra Accessories

Soil & Weather sensors and extra-range antenna add-ons can be found in the Terra shop

 

In-browser Web App Coming 

We're also in the process of designing a web app, so that you can log into your account from any browser and listen to your stream, see the birds being identified in your yard, and also to provide much more sophisticated migratory graphs and bird tracking features - which would not be ideal in a small smart phone screen size - so that's why we want to provide that experience for larger screens where you can really appreciate the animations of bird migrations and all the other functionalities which will be possible!

 

Let us know what you want!

If you have any ideas or suggestions for your ideal web app features, you can do that via the contact page on the terralistens.com website - just choose 'Suggestions or Feedback' on the dropdown on the contact page.

Testing the units

Testing the units

As we said in our last post, we ran the first 24 Terra boards -- here's quick clip of the first one going into assembly: Since then things have been moving at a quick clip here, and we are in the thick of final adjustments on the Terra before going into production.  We have at least half a dozen Terras in the field streaming live audio.  The rest will go outside next week, and we'll have a good sample to look for any failure points or issues.   Scott and Mike working with designer John to adjust the case model.  We've made some tweaks to the case to make it easier to assemble quickly, and we've also adjusted the windscreen to...
The first Terra!

The first Terra!

It's been almost 3 years since Terra began, and we've finally produced one.  We got our first 20 Terra PCB boards for testing, as well as all the parts we needed.  We ran them all through our giant easy bake oven, and out came a complete Terra. Next step is to test the board and then run 20 more, which will go into the 20 enclosures we received.  Those all get tested for a couple of weeks, and then we start making Terras.  Here's Mike with the finished board... And Scott thinking of all the birds we'll identify! Needless to say we're thrilled to be at this point, and it means we're getting very close to fulfilling your orders as...
