Thank you to all of you who supported the project...
First, thanks to all of you who pledged!
As you might expect, we are disappointed that the project didn't get funded, but I am even more disappointed that I have let everyone down.
Initially the Latch & Lanyard was just my cleaver idea for how to "finish" the case and offer it to the many people who had expressed interest. Then as we made the prototypes with it's "snappy" little latch, I realized it was also pretty "cool" in a geeky sort of way. Now, having lived with it for the past few months, it has become indispensable.
I guess my point is that we still feel that this is too good of a product not to find its way to market, and will continue to work to that end armed with your feedback and the lessons we've learned from this initiative.
In regard to the other products, we continue to sell the Gymbl and Gymbl Pro from our website and on Amazon. We've also taken on a distributor in the US and you should see Gymbl showing up in retail stores over the summer. If any of you are interested in purchasing the Gymbl, register to follow the Latch & Lanyard at our website or send me an email address so that I have a way to contact you directly, and I'll send you a promo code that will get you 20% off. (Unfortunately I can't offer this on the Pro because of short supplies.)
In regard to the Rewards:
Latch & Lanyard
For those of you who remain interested in the Latch & Lanyard, I am going to add a product page to our website and include a place where those who are interested can register to continue to get updates. That, or you can follow us on Facebook, Twitter or G+.
Gymbl for iPro Lens
We continue to work with Schneider on this case and together we will make the decision in the next month on whether to release it as a product. If we do it will be available at our website.
This product will be available and should begin shipping next month.
Thank you again for your interest,
