The vocabulary of the External Crosshairs Gadget
We’ve been using a fair number of terms in this blog that have a rather specific meaning when we discuss Hereticle, our external crosshairs gaming gadget. So here’s the first entry in what we’re hoping to become a developing series on the vocabulary of the external crosshairs aficionado. We will be expanding this section based on your feedback, so please be sure to let us know if there’s anything missing!
Redesigning the base of the external reticle
When we went back to the drawing board to improve the design of our external reticle gaming gadget, we already had several important conclusions from the field tests of our beloved but far-from-perfect Basic and Steampunk models.

Designing the external reticle
In the design and development of our Hereticle crosshairs gadget, we’ve given a lot of thought to the configuration and the design of the sight, or the reticle (yes, we know we need to make up our minds which term works best.

Finishing Touches in the crosshairs
The production of our first limited edition Hereticle crosshairs gaming gadget is moving along. We’d love nothing more than to get this first batch out to our prospective fans as quickly as possible. Like now. Or yesterday. But, as tempting as it has been to declare the first batch completed, we also want to be as deliberate as possible. As the production progresses, we have been noticing things that could use improvement, both in functionality and in style. In a few such instances we decided to make some changes on the fly. So things have changed a little since our last photoshoot, and we thought we’d do another and post some pics here for your viewing pleasure.
Sharing is caring
We’re not yet done with the production of our first full batch of the limited edition Hereticle crosshairs gaming gadget. But we couldn’t resist sharing with you some pictures of the fully assembled Hereticle in its element – mounted on a monitor, ready for some serious shooting action. Yes, the photos are not really studio quality – but hey, we’re on a self-funding budget here, so cut us some slack, ok?
So without further ado, we present to you…
Seriously, Cat, what are you doing here? Need I remind you of the hazards of curiosity for a cat? Besides, you should be busy assembling our gadgets! Prepare for a serious talk right after I’m done writing this post.
From drawings to steel
As we mentioned in our previous blog entry, the production of the first limited edition batch of our Hereticle crosshairs gadget has been in full swing for the past couple of weeks.
It’s been very interesting to see how the design of our aiming gadget, first just a collection of drawings, has been turning into a collection of a whole bunch of actual parts. Here, take a look for yourself:
