    Hey Everyone, thanks for the patience, we managed to get through that little bug. Everyone should be able to apply on the beta forms from this point on.

    As for the application window we have not concluded it yet. Once we have chosen a date, everyone will be made aware.


    Cheers!


    Mod note: Please do not make any posts here related to beta testing. I'm sure the registration process on the website will be straightened out and any other questions concerning testing should be directed to the company via email- info@bminnovators.com


    Edit: Beta testing form now seems to be working OK

    When can we expect The Oracle to be available for purchase?

    What is the capacity of the bowl?

    Will it be possible to have the heater on without the pump being on?

    Can you explain how the direct draw function will work? In your first post you said the bag wold be the source of the vapor for direct draw, does that mean we'd hook the bag to the unit with out the pump on and manually draw vapor into the bag?

    I'm very excited about infrared heating. Can't wait to see it in action!!

    We expect production for the Oracle to begin mid-late spring. (120V and 240V)

    In terms of the bowls, we use 19/22 borosilicate down-stems with the different components connecting via male/female joints. (Pictures to come soon)

    In terms of using the unit, the heater and pump must always be running together for one reason; infrared only heats via line of sight. In the main diagram if you notice the small ball which is nestled at the bottom of the bowl. That ball has two purposes which go hand in hand with the pump. When it is on, the ball rises and starts to oscillate with the pump pressure making your herb jump like popcorn. This ensures that when the emitter is running, the herb is getting tossed around and having the largest exposed surface area. The second function of the ball is to act as a check-valve, as soon as the pump is turned off, the ball falls down covering the entry hole in the bowl and restricting any rogue vapors from entering the main heating chamber.

    Our inhalation method is slightly unique but I will try and simplify it. Once the pump and light turn on, vapors are forced to the bag on top and can also be inhaled through a hookah piece (glass joint interface between bowl and bag with a connection to a tube). Since the emitter cannot run without the pump, the vapor content for the whip will always be reliant on the bag's contents.

    Hopefully this answers your questions.

    So does the bag kinda act as a storage/second chamber for the vapour? Im also just slightly concernded as to any IR waves able to escape the vape. Are these safe?

    You are indeed right, the bag will act as storage for the vapors, then the user can either use the whip to inhale the vapors from the bag or remove the bag for portability.

    As for the IR waves, we were extremely careful when treading into this territory because of the negative association many people have with the word "radiation". If you have ever looked into your toaster when its running and you see the wire start to glow red, well its releasing a longer wave form of the infrared radiation we are using. Or perhaps you have ever felt the heat generated by the coals of a fire; Infrared radiation. Our emitter produces the same type of energy and while some will escape from the borosilicate parts, it is completely safe for people.

    Cheers!

    From Wikipedia:

    So, i just gotta ask, can the user tune the wavelength to accomodate kush vs hash vs danky-dank?

    Well interesting you should ask, the emitter we use produces a wavelength between 1 - 2?. The user cannot tune the frequency per say, but they have control over the ambient temperature created by the emitter. Out of the three forms of infrared emitters (short, medium and long wave) short-wave performed extremely well with dried plant matter and boasted a tremendously fast warm-up time.

    So you're saying that this thing has an adjustable temp? If it does, it sounds like a perfect vape.

    I can't believe that again no beta tester from EU are accepted !

    We need diversity here.

    Seriously I'm gonna stop advertising vapes to my friends because there is almost no choice in EU, and instead I am gonna start copying and manufacturing the US models (that won't come to us) to sell them in Europe....

    So pls continue with the R&D.... and don't forget to patent it worldwide :D


    .... so happy to have friends working in quality control in China.

    Yes the vaporizer will use a ditigal temperature readout.

    As for the beta testing, we chose to keep it in Canada and the States for two simple reasons; we are creating 120V models for them and just like how FC can be accessed across the world, we will ask all testers who make a video or write a review to place them online so everyone has access.

    Raf - Beta testing is the only thing about the Oracle we are keeping exclusively local for the time being, as production rolls out, we would be more than glad to diversify the EU selection :)

    Cheers!

    I emailed you about beta testing a few months ago, and you said that I was put on the list. When is there going to be a follow-up?

    I've got a nice video camera to try out... :brow:

    thx for you answer The Oracle.

    Do you keep it local because of shipping costs or for some other reasons ?

    Coz i'll pay the shipping costs if necessary ;)

    You beta tester begging people are like leeches sucking the life out of this thread, it was already closed once because of this, I can't see why you think you are entitled to receiving a beta unit, Oracle should give them to people with influence that may help their sales like individuals that run MJ friendly websites, magazines, or likewise. Come on, who wouldn't want to try a new vaporizer for free?

    Sorry if this came off a little harsh but it is annoying to see people beg, it's like the people asking for change on the side of the road.


    Mod note: A reminder to keep beta requests off the forum doesn't have to include name calling. From the rules page-
    All members must be treated in a respectful and adult manner.

    gracefully put stinkmeaner :p

    In all honesty we would prefer keeping the forum related to the Oracle and any questions or comments people may have on infrared heating. If there are any questions or comments related to testing on an individual basis, please use our contact email so we avoid losing the thread again. ;)

    Just to note though, our primary intention for creating betas is so they can be tested by experienced individuals who can offer valuable feedback.

    Always good to see new things on the horizon. I had a couple questions I didnt see when I looked thru this thread. If these are premature questions considering the current state of your product just let me know!

    1. Is the chamber that holds material able to be removed from the device?
    2. What kind of maintenance procedures should the user expect? (Cleaning, screen changing, etc.)
    3. Are there any consumable components or parts that will require replacement after a specific timeperiod? (Im assuming screens will be)

    Hi there again,

    Could you tell us a bit about the noise of the pump please.
    Is it a totally silent device ? or does it make a little noise ?

    Gracefully maybe not, effective I hope. I just keep imagining these vultures as some teenage kids hiding out in their parents basement grinning from ear to ear because they just scored a free vape. If you ask me the Moderators of this board deserve a beta unit before the average joe, they spend many hours on this board and most seem to own many vapes so they would be good people to review a new product.

    Since it is a forced air system with bags will there be a filter like in the Volcano?

    In all fairness, Oracle brought up the issue beta testing to the forum. It comes with the territory but I agree to a point. Begging and making issues with the beta programs should be frowned upon

    Any ETA on some videos?

    1. The chamber used to store your herb will be the equivalent to a bong down stem (GEAR makes the closest thing to ours) so they can be removed and cleaned.
    2. The only thing people should expect maintenance wise will be to clean the borosilicate parts, change the bag, screen and silicone hosing.
    3. Consumable include borosilicate components (if the worst should happen), screens, hookah stack components (comes with 2, 3 and 4 hose capabilities) and bags.
