What a ride! After spending much of the past few months in Taiwan, we’re really happy to say that we now have a manufacturer-built prototype in the UK. It’s been a crazy journey to get this far. Let us tell you a little bit more.

Dave and Alex have spent a number of years each living and working in mainland China. Dave in particular has spent over four years in Beijing and has managed to achieve a sufficient fluency in Mandarin to study for a master’s degree in automotive engineering in that language. However, although both Dave and Alex have visited Taiwan and love the country’s rich and distinctive culture, neither of them has worked on the island before. So we are particularly thankful to be working with Jasper, the boss at our manufacturer partner, who has welcomed us to Taiwan with open arms by introducing us to suppliers, showing us around, and even inviting us to a mid-autumn festival BBQ at his family home.
