DO-RA flown to Santa Clara!

Despite the technical, organizational, and possibly political difficulties, a number of our product lines DO-RA under the brand name «Made in Skolkovo» successfully flew over the ocean, in the Silicon Valley for his presentation. There, on September 19-20 in Santa Clara, in Silicon Valley, will host Russian Innovation Week — RIW under the auspices of Skolkovo, Rosnano and RVC. 

Despite the reasonable period of preparation for such a serious event, the team of "Intersoft Eurasia" — project-RA (http://do-ra.ru) For some reason haunted solid, albeit surmountable, challenges.

First there were problems with the case, their treatment, artistic painting, but the Chinese are well done — a situation promptly allowed. And we have not lost so much time. However, one downside had to correct itself, as in the models under the name "Yablo Chups", it DO-RA.Chups petals made solid, though they open the bottle. But the Chinese via DHL, quickly sent the correct soft, colored silicone petals to our indicators of ionizing radiation, a certain kind of stylized apples.

Another ambush lay in wait for us at the Russian plant for the production of electronic devices for filling-RA. Summer, many are on vacation, purchasing agents, trainees do not know how to search the database for an item of its bar code, pictures and technical specifications. As a result, at the appointed time nedopostavleny transformers, switches strip and lithium-polymer batteries. In general, DO-RA.Uni gone the distance to America has not been born into the world in the product … But, DO-RA.Uni our universal model, designed to work with key mobile operating platforms like iOS, Android, WP7, etc . most used on the device in the world today. Now DO-RA.Uni can be seen in the colors corps, and not even the ones that were ordered by the color chart RAL …

Another unexpected problem lay in wait for us with our same partners, software development and DO-RA.Soft electronics devices from the city of Sarov. For those who do not know, is the most famous of the former Soviet nuclear center, which successfully forged a "gruel", that is, our hydrogen bomb. In general, the regime object of the highest category, and by today's standards. Even on vacation here to go hard, solid limitations. However, summer, part of the people to leave, someone is sick and who is in the "field" is working for the triple and multiple projects simultaneously …

The bottom line is to travel to Santa Clara on Russian Innovation Week, instead of 72 products could complement, assemble, test the entire product line of 12 DO-RA!

In parallel with the above developments, there is another serious difficulty compelling character. The Embassy of the United States, where I as the head of the project-RA, was interviewed after the question, what do you do in Skolkovo, I answered honestly: The development of devices and software for the display of ionizing radiation in the home for the mass market in the world … It seems that this phrase was enough, that would send my documents to a special audit, which, as I was kindly informed later, can take anywhere from 1-1.5 months or more. It did not help in the treatment of Skolkovo U.S. Embassy visa support. And also my naïve, but a bold appeal directly to the U.S. Ambassador Michael McFaul through Facebook are about all possible assistance in obtaining a visa. Although perhaps it was in those days was the most powerful intensity differences on Syria, and maybe star was not or is it just a routine event. And as my friend, often visiting the United States to business travel, that if before the creaking gave visas humanitarians, we seem to now switched to the engineers … Maybe it really is time to get a second, is a liberal arts education for the good of the cause!? Especially already written an entire book on my Tweeter https://twitter.com/VladimirElin in aphorisms and reflections, sometimes in rhyme …

Despite all the obstacles of force majeure and all kinds of restrictions we have to send a number of copies of our devices-RA with members of the delegation Skolkovo innovators and inventors. The world is not without good people …

To be continued …
