Next up, let’s talk about our stand extension feature.
Initially, Haxson’s oscillation was to be limited between 100 and 120°, or potentially even just 90°.
With no stand, it functioned essentially like a normal tower fan, with a moving disk underneath. Nothing too crazy.
But with our stand added on, things get interesting. With a simple install, Haxson resembles a raised speaker, with the ability to oscillate regardless of what it's sitting on.
The oscillation test proved moderately successful! We don’t have any footage, unfortunately, so you’ll have to trust our word.
What’s more, is the prototype stand was built from a hollow piece of plastic, allowing for lower weight and cost from start to finish.
And for now, that means essentially holding Haxson down with a capsule of water that can be refilled by you, to adjust heaviness whenever needed.
Thanks so much for taking this journey with us so far, and we’ll keep you posted!
