    Hey Guys,

    This is Penny again! It has been a long time since my last weekly update. I just came back to work this week because I have been through multiple rounds of training that lasted for three and a half months! During this period, I was in the factory to assemble phones. I also went to a retail store in Taiyuan (A city in the North of China) to sell phones. Surprise hah? If you think about it, this way I was able to experience all the journey of a phone – from its very beginning until it reaches your hands. I could even talk to users directly and get to know more about them. This was an interesting and enriching experience for me.

    After sharing my personal experience, let’s see what happened during this week!

    The Lab² is finally taking shape!
    As the applications close for our second edition of The Lab², the first review for the Insta360 GO 2 started being posted by @obakesan. You'll start seeing more and more content coming from our The Lab² reviewers. Do you have any guesses about what will be reviewed in the next edition?

    Thanks @Penny P. for this Weekly Update! It was an interesting read!
    That is cool, now you know firsthand what's needed to get that phone to the customer!
    As one of the first 100 users, I must say I like it. It still needs a bit getting used to but we'll get there in time!

    Hello @Penny P. ,

    Thank you for the weekly. Glad to hear that you were able to follow the product journey right from the beginning. To be honest, I'm quite envious. It is indeed very satisfying to go behind the scenes and see how each piece comes together, like a puzzle, to form the big picture. Congratulations on completing the training!

    This week has been quite eventful with a pot of exciting stuff happening in the tech space. But it was extra awesome for me because something I had been personally looking forward to was unveiled! If you're thinking Pixel 6 you're not entirely wrong but this one is for Orbit!

    It's great to see a brand new community app and eventhough there is still a lot of work to be done I'm confident that @Zach X. and Co. will do their best to make this one shine. So the next few months will be a fun ride.

    I also enjoyed the BTS thread from Zach and am waiting for more episodes.

    As for the pictures they look stunning, good work @Mohan_G :)

    Have a great weekend all!
