    One of the last acts for RBT in 2016 to establish it's full product line prior to federal regulations in 2017. This is signified by the the sale of a Mi-510. This one unit build completes the first generation life cycle. The sale of this first generation product line was to @thekarmawhore. In the first half of 2017 RBT has commissioned the design wizard @thekarmawhore to redesign the Mi-510. The beta test units will be fabricated post completion of the Zion pre-order sometime in the second half of 2017. Keep your eye out for updates here from @thekarmawhore in the coming months and I will be checking in once Zion pre-orders are complete.

    I am sure this will be a fun filled thread as @thekarmawhore will make for a great host to all you great creative FC minds.

    This development will take the glass, screens, mouthpiece, heater and Mica from the Milaana and design it into a wooden sleeve to be supplied by our good friend @Alan at Heat Island. The air will pass through a standard RDA inlet port that will be adjustable. The 510 filling will resemble a standard 510 RDA that will be customized to mount to the heater and mechanically to the wood outer housing. this housing will contain the standard Milaana parts assembled using Milaana technology other than the inlet hole will be removed as the air is fed in through the 510 fitting.

    The above design boundaries allow the packing of standard Milaana technology quickly to a custom 510 fitting. This will bring the person with a 50 watt 510 mod box the ability to have a voltage adjustable Milaana for an affordable price point. Mind you, it will not have the vapor quality of Zion, or the warm wooden simple feel of Milaana, but it should appeal to a wider market helping to solidify the RBT product portfolio.

    I won't pretend that this is a surprise to me... :p ...but I'm excited that we can finally discuss this publicly!

    Maybe I could even summon @funkyjunky so he can already start thinking about creating a custom mod around this heater? @Pipes should be interested too! A lot of people will be I'm sure!

    2017 is gonna be great! :buzz:

    I have a feeling the design on his website is just a working prototype of the, so as to get something in before the "federal regulations in 2017" that RBT was talking about. I'd hope that the final version would be much sleeker and smaller, since the current design looks way too bulky.

    Yup, the alpha unit is a bit on the fat side as the wood was a standard 1.5" dowel that was drilled out. It will be reduced down th the width of the Milaana. Still have the issue of exposed glass which will be addressed in the next 510 design. The fist model will leverage the Milaana heater and mouthpiece to accelerate development. Right on, @Pipes Project kicks serious ass! I really wish I had the time to participate in the Project and Mist... maybe after Zion is done?

    Hey @natural farmer .... isn't @Pipes using glass now too? Looks like you will need a pocket protector lol.

    Well I am excited. A wood 510 threaded tank for dry herb. Definitely something I want. Can't wait to hear more and see more. Best of luck to RBT, Alan, testers, and anyone involved.

    The sold out sprawled across the picture made me panic...but it's a dream to me and a nightmare to my budget...lol.

    But then again when I heard about the magic of RBT vapes I knew I was playing with fire by jumping aboard :mental:

    He explained it was for FDA so the first prototype went to karmawhore for some design expertise. That and the log were posted already sold out (Alan will be working on that one). Rest of us won't see these til after Zion ;)

    Hey folks... as @thekarmawhore is starting the design... we are looking for some initial feedback.

    In order to standardize we will be using only black glass. Attys are usually black or stainless so black will be stealth. Black also hides all the unsightly gunk in the mouthpiece. This will allow us to get better pricing on a higher volume buy. The black glass is more expensive than the other colors but I believe warranted... however, I would consider blue.

    Secondly, given @Alan talent at the lathe, we will have the ability to make the wood profile slightly concave or convex or tapered big at the bottom and small at the top... which sounds most appealing?

    Once the 3D models are done @thekarmawhore will share photo renderings here to facilitate more crowdstorm
    ing, so stay tuned...

    Can't wait to see how this goes! To me it looks like an impossible project to shrink the Mi heater so much that it makes for a reasonably sized atty but I really hope karma's talent proves me wrong! :nod:
    Maybe some drastic design changes will need to take place, maybe not, it sure will be a fun ride though! :popcorn:

    Bigger bottom smaller top probably makes the most sense, but I really like the idea of a concave/convex parabola shape wood body, would be really unique and beautiful, help make things sleeker? Whatever Alan thinks is best!
    Good call on black glass too

    Why not both? A bigger bottom :brow:, and smaller top with a more concave hourglass shape would look amazing in my opinion. Keeps a similar function, might lose sone heat retention in the middle though.

    @natural farmer the first iteration will use the existing Milaana heater and simply mount it in a round piece of wood and affix it to a 510 base... picture it like an Arizer Air. A future design will address the height. It's not if, it's done other than the details ;)

    @Lookatmeglow i dig a parabolic design as well.
