[R][T] Plans going forward

A project log for Tetrinsic [gd0041]

A continuous, motorized fader that is force sensitive, haptic and self-sterilising.

Finally... I've got a locked-in Tetent solution that also tries to borrow from TyMist (because a handheld input device is near useless without an output device that is just as portable) and I've started thinking of the detailed, full implementation of the solution. I also heard an interesting quote from someone commenting on a Facebook post about some engineering fail:

There's never enough time to do it right but 
there's always enough time to do it twice. ― Facebook Guy

I find this hilarious, partially because I'm in a rush yet I've actively been trying to avoid this thought process before seeing it written for the first time.  

This project... is going to take a while, mainly because the stuff I need doesn't exist yet. Something along the lines of:

If you wish to make an apple pie from scratch, 
you must first invent the universe. ― Carl Sagan

 The workload I've envisioned I need to do makes me wish I had a Tetent to create the Tetent.

For the Tetrinsic specific stuff, some of the things I'm thinking of using / implementing are:

I'm trying to avoid time bankrupcy here, but this overall Tetent project sounds mighty time draining right now. 

"Do it from scratch. Spare no expense! And never cut corners."
And we are almost bankrupt. ― Cave Johnson, quoting his father

 It all sounds within my capabilities, but loooooooooong.

I wondering if I'll ever get all the way to the end,
but it's a risk I gotta take. ― STRAY KIDS, TOP (english version)

 At the same time though, I'm wondering if I should just pack up this hobbyist innovation biz and reclaim my time, seeing as most my other projects all the same or larger in time-cost without Tetent, and that the 4x speed boost and quality-of-life improvement via Tetent will make it all too easy for Me In The Future to take on 8x the current workload, similar to adding more lanes to a highway only incentivises more people to drive.
