As much as possible, we try to incorporate user feedback into our designs. For example, the following features on Dreamcatcher came from user feedback:
- Switching from 256MB RAM to 512 MB
- LNA/filter on antenna, for placing antenna farther away from receiver
- Using SD card, since flashing NAND was an annoyance
- USB to serial with microUSB cable (can use Putty in Windows)
- Much, much, more
Selling hardware is what allows us to pay for the broadcast, so it’s really important that we build products that resonate with customers. The only requirement is a $49 retail price. This introduces a lot of constraints, but hopefully you can help us prioritize the features that would lead to a really novel, useful, and low-cost radio product.
