Hoop shows a color to indicate delay when doing alphabetical sort on a folder with many files. People were confused by this color so it was changed from blue to black (off). Also set the default crossfade time to 200ms if value is otherwise not present in options.txt.

Fixed a bug whereby sometimes the flash drive would get corrupted when performing safe eject on OSX.

Fixed a bug that would sometimes cause navigation to get stuck at the end of a folder on the last bitmap.

2/28/2018
Fixed a bug whereby pressing Next Pattern when in a motion mode folder wouldn’t cycle to the next pattern until hoop actually moved.

2/23/2018
Fixed another freezing bug that was due to noisy signal on the IR line. Added extra input filtering to compensate.

2/22/2018
Fixed a freezing bug that would occur sometimes when using the Previous Mode or Next Mode button. At least one batch has passed preliminary testing and will begin shipping once they pass quality control.

2/21/2018
Added some last minute code updates:

  • “instant on” functionality
  • ensure that motion sensor calibration will never be required by the hooper.

Unfortunately this introduced a bug thats causing animation to freeze up. Troubleshooting it and should have a fix in a couple of days at the latest. Other than this we are ready to ship.
