Hi. Welcome. To pollster, headquarters, here in Gothenburg, I'm Jatin Couture the CEOs assistant, and we'll give you a quick behind-the-scenes tour, of our world here at Polestar let's get going, this. Is. Paul Starr one an electric. Performance, hybrid with. 600, horsepower and 1000, Newton meters of torque what, makes this car really special is that, you can drive up to 150, kilometers pure electric, we're, really proud of this car and this, one next to it this was the first-ever driving prototype, of pulsar. We're, in the cube now this is where we make all our big decisions for the company ah you. Can see Thomas getting ready for the big show. Hello. Kiri what are you up to. Over. Here in the lab this, is where all of our awesome, engineer sir how's it going Sofia hmm, nice. The. Guys over here are super busy creating, our customer, and commercial, office as we begin rolling out cars, we. Are bringing cars to the market with a totally new approach post. Our customers, will, never have to queue at a service reception, or, struggle, with complicated, buying processes, there's. Also a huge interest in our subscription, service the, full no hassle, Pulstar experience, on one monthly bill, check. That you have two minutes I'm really sorry guys the, show starts soon we better get a move on. This. Is the quiet selfish. The, Polestar production, center in chengdu is nearly, ready for poster wants to start rolling off the line it's, getting so exciting. This. Is where, our brand team brainstorm. And create, our oven guide identity, is everything on track season as always great, to hear and over, here we. Have a poster space retail, lab, at. Our spaces, our customers, and the general public will, be able to meet product experts and get closer to our products, and our brands. We're. In the process currently of setting, up spaces all over, the world on high streets in cities near, you. That's. All we have time for folks, enjoy. The show, please. Welcome Thomas, England lat chief, executive officer of poster. Thank, you. Thanks. Welcome. Thank you. Thank, you, thanks. A lot good afternoon welcome, welcome. To the launch of, pollster. To, knock. On to. It with you through our headquarters. So you saw the awesome, space, you. Met some of the great people working there and yes. You said hello to Kiwi, our dog. Now. This. Is where we are building the. New electric. Car brand, Polestar. Poster. Was established, to support, the change towards. Sustainable, mobility. We. Are convinced, that, this is the right way, this. Is the, right direction to, protect. This planet to. Preserve it for the future generations. We. Are, enthusiastic. About the. New technology, and, the. Fun and the joy that, it will bring with. The electric propulsion to, the, truly modern, driving, experience. Without. Standing design a. Powerful. Electric, performance, and the. Seamless integration, into. Your digital life. Poster. Will be an intriguing, addition, to, the new world of electric. Cars. We. Are digitally. Connected. To our customers. Nothing. Nobody, in between all. Communication. All interaction. Will, be between. Pulsed and you direct. We. Will offer a modern subscription. Model, we're. Just like you know it from your phone with, one monthly. Bill everything, is transparent. Hassle-free. No. Surprises. Postal. Spaces. They. Will be downtown. It's. Part, of the community, and we. Love that our, customers. Can experience, their, firsthand. Our. Products. They. Can get, the. Help that they need the personal help and, of. Course. Take. A poster for a write. The. Places they are beautiful. They are open. Inspiring. Inviting. Just like this one here the. One in Oslo that we are building right now by. 2020. We will have 60. Spaces, up and running in. Towns. Like, London. Munich. Shanghai. Los, Angeles, all, across, the globe. Now. This day I have, been looking forward to for, a really long. Time. It. Is three years ago. Where. We found a home for a design that, was truly, dear. To my heart, it, was great. Powerful, thing, anything. But, mainstream a, true. Free spirit, and as free.

Spirit, Tend to it just really, simply, did not fit in now. Luckily. We, just had invented. A brand where things that do not fit the convention, will, find their home Polestar. So. This. Great, awesome, design became, our pollster, - and we're. Gonna show it to you in a minute. But. There's another reason why this is a truly exciting day for us here today. Because. Pasta. - is our. First pure, electric, pole star a true, battery. Electric, car now. Pasta, is dedicated. To, electro. Mobility we, are the electric, performance, brand and. Here. This our, pure, electric. Pole statue. Haaa. Falsi. To. Everything. Everything. Has. Been engineered. And, designed with. Passion. And dedication on, that car each. And, every, detail has. Been. Each. And every detail has been thoughtfully. Considered, and it. Is just. Beautiful. Iconic. Graphics, the. Clear-cut. Architecture. Central. Surfaces, and. The. Confident, powerful stance, this, is the, pure, progressive, design that, the brand posta, radiates. For each in every detail. Now. Let. Us go straight, to the heart of pasta. - now. What is the heart of a electric. Car the. Battery the. Very core of posta toothed battery, is a pouch cell that, is a flat cell, that. Makes it easy, to build up multiple, layers in a. Very compact, way and. We. Are talking here lots. Of layers and, lots. And, lots, of layers. 324. Cells. We, condense, into. Pasta. To its long-range. Battery. Now. Because this, is the most crucial, criteria. A modern. Premium electric car has to deliver on range. With. A target of 500. Kilometer. Range you. Can, rely on this. Battery, power in Polster to. Now. How. Do we actually get. These, 324. Pouch cells into, our pasta - well. First. We bundle, 12, cells. In each module, three. Twenty four times. Twelve, twenty. Seven modules. Those. Modules they, transform, them ingeniously. Into the bacteria our. Engineers, they, managed to utilize. With, the highest efficiency all the, space and volume in the, flow of the pasta - so. Each. And every corner, which. Is not needed for a foot room leg room or luggage, we. Came battery. Space. Now. We slide, in the. Cooling, plates they, are there, for the high efficient, temperature management and that. Is it that, is the powerful heart of the, electric pasta -. Strong. Heart is. A strong beat. To. Protect this heart we build. A secure, case around it that is a main structure, made out of an aluminum base, and a. Steel lid and. This. Extremely, rigid enclosure. That, seals. The battery and protects, it in case, of. A crash, but. Sorry. It's. Not only a strong heart obviously it. Is let's face it the battery is heavy. Now. Let's, make, a Vantage. Out of that let's use, it for. The sake of pasta, -. We. Fit this. Battery enclosure, just. Like a Lego brick. Into. The base body. Structure, of pasta - and we. Use the, excellent, rigidity, to. Form a super, stiff car body, this. Amazingly, strong core of the pasta - that. Is not, only the foundation for superb safety, no, it's as well a crucial, and a blur for. The. Agile. Sporty. Driving, feel of pasta. Thanks. To torsional. Stiffness. And a. Wonderful, low. Center. Of gravity. The. Torsional stiffness is, increased. Compared. To a standard car by 35%. Now. Have a look at the, simulation that we're running now where the, car body is put under extreme. Torsional, stress and as. You can see the. Main floor section. Hardly. Moving it is rock. Solid. And one, more great thing about this NVH. Levels noise. Vibration. Harshness now. Why not utilize. This, high mass and stiffness of the battery and enclosure to, actually reduce. Vibration. And noise. So. Our engineers designed, this battery, enclosure to act as. Anchor. Of relevant, frequencies. Now what that really means is it's, just much more silent, and we, want to demonstrate that to you we will play a car. Driving. At, a speed like, hundred kilometers, conventionally. With the lowest level of 74. Decibel. And then, we will switch. To. The noise level, in a poster which is indeed. 3.7. Decibel, lower, than the convention, so please listen to that. That. Is amazing, it. And. Of course, that. Makes especially. Sense in an electric, pasta - since guess what there is no combustion. Engine, noise making, noise and rattling away so, enjoy, the silence, in the pasta -. Now, let us take. A look at the complete drivetrain, and the figures here, is, the long range battery, was a 78, kilo but ours capacity.

And Then. There's the electric motor in front the electric motor in the rear each 150. Kilowatt, and Freenet, 480 Newton, meters let's. Make the math do the math it, is a total. Of 300. Kilowatt, power and. 660. Newton meters of torque. 408. Horse, powers, in a, pasta - how awesome is that. And. This. Section it's 60 Newton meter of electric. Torque this immediate. Instant, never-ending, force pushing, you forward and our, engineers, they, designed, the distribution of this talk, to be adjustable, and with, all this great, ingredients. Positive, became, a truly amazing, performance. Car. Now. This. Is. The. Powerful electric. Drivetrain, in the posta 2 and, this. Was just the beginning we, are really proud that we could so many more innovations. Into posta - and I. Would love to show you some of them. Like. The LED headlights. Of posta, - they. Are not only beautiful and. They are at the same time highly, functional, in fact, these. Pixel, LED, technology we. Use is amongst, the, best and most. Advanced. Possible, there. Are 84. LED, pixels in each headlight, and they are lined, up in three rows and now of, course they project a beam with. Very high precision, but. They have as well a brain these, headlights and that brain can recognize. Up, to five cars in the oncoming traffic and then, it cuts the. Light beam, razor-sharp. Around. Those cars, which. Means we're. Supposed to you, can drive permanently. With high beam, even. With, oncoming, traffic I think, that is a major, contribution to. Your safety. And, that. Safety is dear to our heart, now. For. Your safety but as well for your comfort, we put another thing in the pasta - it comes, a standard, with a highly sophisticated, pilot. Assist system, the. Radar and the forward-looking, camera, they. Permanently, monitor, the street ahead of you and they. Support you with, a safer Drive. That. Is on, what's guard for you every, millisecond. Of your drive it's. Never, becoming tired. It. Never, would you, know glance at as a mess or answer phone call this. System, is your. Garden, angel, in, the pasta -. At. Pasta. - we believe in the power of innovation, the. Shows in major leaps, technology. Lives like the LED headlight. But. We challenge each and. Every detail and we, innovate. Even the, most simple, mechanical. Components. By, rethinking them, and, let. Me show you one of the. Amazing examples. Of that and that would be our. Sight mirror this. Is the side mirror of the pasta -. If. We had engineered. It the way we, did it the last 25, years. Driven. By legal. Requirements. Side mirrors actually have grown from car, generation, to car generation, they became bigger and, that. Is not only an, aesthetical, problem making them look like elephant, ears it's, actually. As well highly, unofficial. Making aerodynamics. Really. Worse from generation to generation so, here. Is what our engineers. Reinvented. Instead. Of adjusting, the glass within, the. Enclosure they, actually put bows together and moved both of them and doing. So we could reduce the volume, of the side mirror by 30%. That. Gives better. Aerodynamics. But. Again, priceless. The, gain in looks bye-bye. Dumbo. Next. Let me show you around inside, pasta, - now.

How Do we get in anybody's. Got, the cocky with you now. Never. Mind. This. You. Always always, have with you your phone so. Via. Bluetooth, pasta. To recognizes, you and your phone and. It. Will unlock the door when. You grab the handle. But. Think about this Bluetooth Boutrous actually, has a. Reception. Precision, of around 6 to 7 meters. That. Is not good enough in case you would be standing close by but, potentially. Out of, sight hidden behind your garden fence for example, so. What we did we. Added four. Additional antennae, in each and every corner of the pasta - and by. That. The. Precision is much higher, only. If your s close is 1.5. Meter by your car the. Car would unlock. The door when, you grab the handle we. Think that is going, to, that is really, amazing convenience. For you that does, not come with any compromise, on your security. Or safety. Once. You sit behind your steering wheel then. You ask yourself where's. The start button. Well. Guess. What you sit on it literally. Really, we. Put the start button into. The seed so. As soon, as the car recognizes. Your phone in the car you. Sitting, behind. The steering wheel it, will, switch, into, ready-to-go, mode which. Means no, key to turn no. Start button to be pushed one. More hurdle taking, away pasta, to knows. And understands, what you want. To do and it, is always a step ahead. When. You drive the, essential, information is displayed on this, gorgeous, with gorgeous clarity and brightness, and. As. Soon as you choose the. Navigation. System it takes over and the map and the directions, take, over, the full width of the screen, a beautiful. And highly, functional. Now. Let us move, over to the center display that. Is an 11, inch big. Gorgeous. Touchscreen. It's. Bigger for. More information, for richer detail and of, course for easier use. Now. We mount this in portrait. Mode, in, vertical, orientation because. This. Is the. Best for. Displaying. A map into, driving direction and handling. Lists for example, address or music. Lists. Now. This, is a real big thing here. With. Pulsar - we change, completely. The way that. We think about and we, handle, the information entertainment. In the car I. Mean. Far how many years. Have, we promised. To deliver an. Easy-to-use. Up-to-date. Navigation, and how. Terribly. Did we fail again. And again. The. Same as voice recognition I, mean just look at the. YouTube, clips, about you know, funny. Clips about. Misunderstandings. Of voice out of control, in cars, so. We, understood, that we really. Have to do something radically. Different here and we. Did. We. Teamed up with. The pros in the respective. Field, and acknowledged. That it's pointless. To think that you can do everything. Best yourself. So. We. Embedded Android, as the infotainment, system, software, bringing. Google. Assistant. Google. Maps and. The. Apps of the Google Play Store into, a pulse tattoo. That. Means that our customers, will enjoy the. Superb, artificial. Intelligence, of Google, assistants fast learning, voice, recognition and. Let. Me demonstrate, that, to you. Take. Me to pizzeria. Roma. Sure. Getting the fastest, route to pizzeria, Roma. Any. Of this you. Do not have to know the town, or the street just, put in the name of the place where you want to go and the navigation. Starts. Find. Shouting stations, nearby. Showing. Results for charging stations, nearby I'll, look at that that's quite a list. Play. At last on Spotify. At. Last, you, can navigate keep. In touch manage. Tasks and plan. Your days using. The time you are behind your steering wheel without distraction. Out. Of the Google Play Store you can, download the. Apps you, prefer, into.

Any Of the four tiles and you can swap in between them, your. Mobile isn't an Android. Never. Mind it will connect and yes. Your iPhone to. All. Posts are two cars will, be connected, to the Internet for over-the-air. Updates. For, online entertainment like, music streaming, as. Standard. The cast. Software, will, update, to. Feel. Like new on a regular base I. Think. It's good, time now to show, you a bit more of posters, beautiful, interior, please enjoy. Isn't. It gorgeous. This. This. Is from the masters of avant-garde, interior, design the. Best you, can get. Scandinavian. Style. Giving. Digital, innovation. Personality. Redefining. Premium. For the electric age, you. Know minimalism, is an art that requires, maximum. Artistry. Experience. And precision. And I. Dare to say pasta too is, the. Best designed, electric. Car period. Now. You wonder. This. Is Spock. Not. The first officer, this. Is our. Spock, poster Spock it, is the, star of a, different, movie an action movie that we shot here in Gothenburg called. The. Nasty, offset, front crash and. Spock. Place a major, role in that movie. Now. What is happening, here is that, little Spock helps. To, guide all, the heavy metal, along the outside of the car during, this collision so. Nothing. Intrudes, into, the interior. The. Spot block is helping. To protect the passengers from, being hurt and, it. Helps. Preventing. Any damage to. The battery pack, it's. A great invention from the, engineers one. Of many, that will make sure pasta, too is one, of if not the safest. Electric, car it. Is engineered and designed to. Reach the, tops course by. Writing Institute's, which, of course a test to come will proof. Now. Check out how well. It performs, as well in the frontal. Crash, was a poll again. Not. A single, crash scratch, on the. Battery pack. Here's. A complete list of safety, tech in the pasta - with. Up to nine. Airbags. Onboard. Eric's. Not only on the outside of the seat Buster but as well on the inside the so-called far, side airbag. Looking. At that list pasta, - is an electric car that makes, no compromise, when it comes to protecting your, life. Another. Topic where we take care of your verus charging. We. Understand, that for many of you the. Range, of a cart charging, is a concern. So. First. We make sure that, you get really far, with one charge offering. A high, battery. Capacity in. The post or two. Second. In. Pasta, - it is really easy to find the, charging, stations, nearby, it's. A full integration, of the infrastructure. Into. The navigation, and an intuitive, search. Functionality. Thirdly. We. Are working, together, with some major players developing. The fast-growing. Charging. Infrastructure, to, offer easy, access for, you our customers, to. The charging, stations, along your way. Our. Care. For the environment goes. Beyond, the, electric drivetrain, we're. Supposed to - we. Designed our interior. Offer to. Promote. And accelerate, the shift of the car industry to words leather. Free, interiors. And, I. Will spare you now the disturbing, video of a mass production, of leather skin again. Just. Like with the propulsion, it is, the great fun and the joy of the alternative. That. We offer that. Should convince, our, customers. So. We, designed the most beautiful. And great-looking. Vegan, interior, program ever in the premium segment and, we. Made it standard, in our offer. So. Let. Me show you some of the awesome appears that, we developed for pasta - here's. We've tech. We've. Take is a fully, vegan, material. It's. Sporty, it. Is water and dirt repellent, and, this. Crisp, and modern look actually was inspired by sports, wear scuba diving, spots where, we've.

Tagged Is 30%. Lighter than leather so for, each car, we save up to four kilo, weight. Compared, to a leather equipped. Car and, even. Lighter offer is the textile, seat, that. Saves. 8, kilos. Of weight compared. To the leather car I mean 8 kilos. Then. We have 3d. Xed. We. Created, three-edged that, with technical. Feel and the beauty of the digital aesthetics, and at. The end it is a beautiful. Piece being a pure, simple. Polycarbonate. Deco, I mean that is how much you can achieve just, simply by designing. Well. Mmm. Then we have food in our car black, ash, it. Was designed, because. We wanted to use the wood in a car in a non-traditional way. So. It. Gives not only I mean this cool and avant-garde look in the car it, also helps, us to actually safe. And, use. More, of the veneer, so. We can reduce scrap. And be, much more sustainable. Using. The wood. Pasta. To will. Come in 6. Exterior, colors, we. Have midnight. We. Have magnesium. Snow. Thunder. Moon. And. Void. And. Of course pasta too will come with or without performance. Pack and in, the performance. Pack sorry, you. Will find the aleene's, chassis technology. The. Polestar, golden seatbelts, and, the. Brembo, brake, calipers. Now. Together, with our Head. Of Design Maximilian, Missoni be produced and created a, video, about. The pasta to which, I would really love to show you now. Pasta. - is not just an electric, car, Polestar. - is a new, icon, of electric, mobility. A confident. Creature playing, to its own rules. Bold. Graphics, clear-cut. Architecture. Sensual. Surfaces, and a powerful stance, materialized. In an uncompromising. Pure, and progressive, design which. Embodies, the true DNA, of the poster. In. Its heart the, powerful 78. Kilowatt, hour battery, pack has, been carefully. Optimized, creating. Both maximum. Interior, space and a low center of gravity, this. Densely, packed powerplant, provides. Up to 500. Kilometers of range. To, powerful electric, motors generate. A combined. 300. Kilowatts, of power and. 660. Newton meters of torque, our. Engineers, designed, the power train for precise, adjustable.

Torque Distribution. Elevating. Your driving, experience and positioning. Posta - as a true, electric, performance, car. The, pixel LED headlamps, are not only beautiful to look at but also, contains, some of the most advanced. Lighting technology, on the market. We.

The, configurator, will be available, right after, this show so. You can choose, your favorite post or two and, place. Your reservations, starting, today. With. The presentation. Of our, poster, to to you today we. Have deliberately. Not followed, a top-down. Strategy. So. We rather decided, to something, different. After. Defining the top the pinnacle, of our brand was a beautiful. Poster. 1gt. We. Followed up today with a poster, to an electric. Car that defines. The foundation. Of our brand. Why. The. Bus, around. The Tesla Model 3 showed, where. Electro, mobility is, relevant. For society, today and. Resposta. Too we. Bring an exciting. Premium, electric car that will broaden the choice and offer in exactly. This segment, and we. Truly, hope that, we will contribute with this to success, of sustainable. Electric. Mobility. Now, making, this, powerful. And beautiful design, that we fell in love with three, years ago. Come. Alive. That. Was really demanding, but. On the other hand it was a fulfilling, journey. Whilst. Retaining. This.

Music by Mick Gordon

150km? Koreans do better then that, although leather-free is good, that's a right direction.

looks beautiful and of course like Volvo. So i dont like the name. But the cars should be good, i'm interested in.

Nice car ... though ... artificial (and rather badly done) presentation ... too "we wanna be cool like apple style" like ... and no reference to Volvo even as it is Volvo brand (which is NOT bad thing at ALL!!!) ... and what did we learn from this ... nothing ... "we do it like this we do it like that we will save the planet ... " . If you copy Apple then think deeper and do it like they really do (from Markting point of view ... and sell philosophy not "what and how" but "why" ;-) *see Simon Sinek on this topic*

ok, that intro was sooo awkward. That jacket... more awkward. That script was a mash up of apple, telsa, mastercard, who else? "Blah blah passion blah blah whoohoo bla blah passion..." Gets my vote for Worst car launch 2019. I bet Thomas, the CEO, likes to dance like Elaine from Seinfield at the company's friday work drinks.

No Tech-Specs ... AC-Charging?

Polestar I thought there were gonna be strippers

Looks like a Volvo with bad proportions who lost its badge. As long as Polestar will feel like a stolen part of Volvo I'll have a problem with this brand.

mustard jacket

2:07 "Is everything on track, Suzanne?" "As always!" *Lies!* Regardless of company, you could only wish that everything was always on track.

What is this frame rate seems a bit off. In the intro I mean.

Thank you Tesla for pushing all the car makers to pull out their faces out of their butts. NOW VOLVO... MAKE THIS CAR WAGON!!!! VOLVO IS WAGON, WAGON IS VOLVO... And I will be the first to buy it. Come on !! don’t stop halfway of a good successful product!! WAGON WAGON WAGON!!

His jacket patches match the dog. Style king. Never own a dog whose colour clashes with your elbow patches. Nice looking car. Should get Mr and Mrs Sceptical aboard the EV revolution.

I love this car. I pre-ordered the Byton M-Byte for my wife. Now this is going to be for me

Dream Starup. Only Blabla.

That car looks beautiful, but i hate it when i see something that is allready on the market (Tesla has all of this since 2012) being presented as a revolutionary product/strategy.

I know Elon and he is no Elon Musk.

Comparing anyone to Elon makes that person look small tbh

The LED fog lights look exactly like on Volvo's SUVs

Beautiful great work everyone

if they would use Tesla charging network it would make more sense

For the “strong heart” battery case — aluminum base + steel case = dissimilar metals. Add road salt as you get in cold climates = RUST.

the front face is look a like a volvo

Will this car be available in NZ ?

I really like the guy’s accent in the beginning.

This presentation is what I would expect from high school kids ... who are not particularly talented. Annoyed enough already that I went to comment and haven't heard a single damn thing about the car yet.

Electric cars are getting sweeter and sweeter...

I really dislike the apple-like presentation with all the moronic clapping and cheering. Also this guy dresses like a twat. Nice car though.

Volvo headlights? Well everyone likes Thor I guess. I like it, at least Volvo knows how to align panels...

Northern Hemisphere fascism, yay! "All across the globe"... not one in the southern hemisphere! Probably still thinks of it as "Terra Nullius" meh...

Nice car, but compared with a $35.000 Tesla model 3.... is this too little too late?

nothing can beat model 3 ...quality / price ... BEST CAR EVER ; PERIOD ..

Tesla and Apple had a baby and it's name is Polestar

Tesla pioneered, Porsche on its way of perfecting . . Volvo re-inventing

Finally, Tesla has some competition.

Is this the Swedish Tim Cook?

The thing I'm waiting the most with electric cars is if german and other car makers with horrible reliability will finally be reliable.

is this an Apple show?

so if your phone is dead, you cant drive the car?

150 km pure electric is good but, a minimal number

Electro fucking mobility is a BIG LIE ! The CO2 emission which is caused during the battery production is by far higher than current one !!! Furthermore if we still stick to lithium ione batteries where is the raw material needed for it if the whole country switches to ev cars ?

It says it was hybrid. I thought it was electric.

This is Volvo's wanna-be-Tesla-hobby-project. They'll never be them, nor should they. Though it's doomed to fail, since the PS1 haven't even started selling. Idiocracy, Volvo!

Android. YUGH.

The next FF not Tesla

From me to the CEO for Polestar 2. You did an OK presentation not ground breaking, not shitty but OK. The car looks good and has good range aswell. Well done and welcome to the electric world. We need more please, cheaper versions.

The design is wrong. Large battery modules cooled only from one side will result in an internal temperature gradient within the module. The battery will die faster. You need to cool every cell individually.

Polestar Boardroom: Chairman: let's develop our strategy CEO: let's just copy Tesla Chairman: Ok, we are done here, have to go.

THIS ACTING IS SO LAME!

I think elon musk succeed. in his mission for the world to be greener. at first it was only tesla now look how many companies are going ev

Make this car under $40,000 with over 240 mile range and you have a winner. If you can’t do that, then good luck, most people would rather by a Tesla.

Better late than never, but Tesla is 10 years ahead.. By the way.. everything was fine until he said the word ANDROID.

Lovely car!

I appreciate the effort and the passion, but this presentation is a clear and bad imitation of Steve Jobs' style while the car is a clear and late imitation of Tesla, which achieved the same technology years ago.

Please try to distinguish yourself more, but again, congrats for switching from prototype to product.
