I just want to pump the brakes on the accelerometer talk that has been coming up lately. Yes, Engineering has been prototyping an accelerometer. Yes, it can integrate with the Gizmo Widget. However, the scope of the accelerometer is still in flux. There is no timeline in place. It could take 6 weeks, it could take months, we don't know.

Engineering is currently working on the updated Canooter Valve (As Matt has been outlining). There are enough things to do with the Canooter Valve that require the whole team's attention. Marketing could help us with copy and Product with a new guide on the Canooter Valve.

So that's not to say that we cannot think of ideas for the accelerometer, but I'd argue it's not the priority at the moment.

After reading Jon's proposal for the Gizmo's accelerometer, the Marketing team has decided to draft up some ideas to get the ball rolling. We'll list them here and update them as we go along. Feel free to send your suggestions to me on chat and I'll include them in the post.


Acme accelerates towards a new feature for the Gizmo Widget...coming soon!

I'd like to propose an idea for the Gizmo Widget that would benefit from what we learned after today's meeting. Currently there is no way to measure the acceleration on the Gizmo. The recent developments on the prototype accelerometer from the engineering department have been promising. It gives me hope that we can find a way to integrate this feature into Acme products, especially the Gizmo Widget. Tom has told me that a lot of users have wanted an accelerometer on the Gizmo for a long time, so with these new developments, why not push to include an accelerometer on the Gizmo?

To get this feature off the ground, we need to figure out a timeline for getting the accelerometer ready for production. With a timeline in mind, we could get some copy ready to create hype around a new accelerometer for the Gizmo. I've talked with Sarah and she says the Marketing team can help create some email and social campaigns for the accelerometer. All we need to do is get the Product team on board from the start and ask for their advice. I'll get a meeting scheduled with Miley from Product to talk about this. Once Product is on board they can talk with Engineering and get the specs and their copy ready for the launch.

An accelerometer will not only help us retain current customers but attract new ones. We've developed a lot of good will from the Gizmo. It's reliable and well-built. Now we just have to continue improving it so our customers know we're listening. We can't rest on our laurels. We have to keep improving. A new accelerometer will prove just that.

Let me know if you have any questions and feel free to post anything on the team instance about the idea.
