    Send me your email and i'll add you to the list of prospective beta testers for all future products. After that you just got to get lucky or be in contact with the right people. Hint: It's not me.

    Beta testing I like, because unlike field testing "ready for market" products, people tend not to get their shorts in a bunch so much when I point out problems.
    If more government is the answer, then it's a really stupid question.

    It would make it easy to update and add software related features and calculations, as it can all be done via the app.

    It would work with everything the current HG works with, and could actually be simplified because it would become just a device for collecting data and passing it along to the app.

    I'd buy it as soon as it comes out, along with a number of other related heads/instruments to work with it.
    I'm thinking I'm not the only one who has taken a pass on the HG, in its current form, that would be all over the HG system if it worked that way.
    well... yeah! that's what am saying man.

    and am waiting for the HG to catch up. Don't get me wrong, am impressed with what it does now. But it is lacking some things IMHO that i find easier to just do it all myself

    Before we work on artificial intelligence why don't we do something about natural stupidity?

    Hopefully the marketing guys are not over product design and testing, no good could come from that.

    We're a pretty well rounded bunch around here so there's both marketing and engineering in the mix with the beta testers. But you gotta do your homework if you want to become a preferred beta tester. Nothing is entirely free.

    A data collection instrument that bluetooths to a superheat/subcooling and Teet calculation app coded in Android Java and Apple IOS with built in diagnostics.

    Interesting, very interesting.

    Plus CFM input from a hot wire anemometer, and associated delivered capacity calculations.
