Current situation

Developing your films at home is time consuming and unreliable in the outcome. You have to have a darkroom or a big bag, a developing tank and several chemicals that you need to heat up in your sink or on a stove - both highly unreliable inconvenient. After this is set the tank has to be continually agitated in order to get a good result during the whole process.

Analog film development made easy

A smart home solution to develop your colour as well as black and white films in both 35 and 120 mm without the need of a darkroom. Reliable and precise chemical heating combined with automated film agitation in a single device.

Approach

A daylight tank allows the user to put in the exposed film in bright lit conditions. The agitation process has been automated which ensures a steady developing process. The Chemicals are being heated and monitored via the interface without a need for sturdy cables and with a precision of 0,1°C.

Solution

You adjust the reel, put in the film, select a setting from the database or do a manual input, cut the film and wait for the chemicals to reach the desired temperature. After 15 min the heating process has finished and you will be prompted when to pour in the chemicals inside the tank and back into the bottle. In the end you wash your film with tap water, take it out of the reel and use the hangers provided in the compartment of the station to hang it up to dry.
TECHNIQUE

Inside the tank the reel is autonomously agitated by an electric motor. All of the chemicals as well as the tank are heated via heating plates on the main station. A magnet is stirring the liquids providing exact temperature measurements that are transfered via spring pins.

SCAN YOUR FILM

To continue working with your perfectly developed negatives, a small scanner provides you with the possibility to digitalize the images for online posts or small printouts. An integrated knive-system allows a precise, fast and easy cutting of the film in order to store it safe and secure.
