Full speed ahead
We are moving production ahead of schedule. No waiting until February like initially planned to start prototyping custom electronics, getting tooling made, ordering material, building machine shop fixturing, sourcing components and hire talented people.
The way Kickstarter works, we do not recieve any pledge funds until 19 days after the funding finishes, which is late February. So to cover these huge upfront costs before then, we are raising interim capital to make things happen faster.
We have received glowing reviews from Wired, Gizmodo, Cult of Mac, Uncrate, GigaOM, Electronista, and many more. Its a surreal feeling to see your product in the blogs you read everyday.
And its been shared around the world by thousands of people of Facebook and Twitter. The Twitter stream for “Elevation Dock” has been cool to watch.
But it is still crickets in the mainstream press... If anyone knows a journalist, we would be happy if you forwarded them a link to our project. Like “Hey David Pogue, feast you eyes on this hunk of metal that is the fastest growing crowd funded product in history.”
And they can get in touch directly: email@example.com
We have recieved a ton of inquires and have a growing FAQ section at the bottom of the front page to help. Here are the two most popular:
How do I back multiple rewards? Just add up the total of the pledges you want and enter that as the pledge amount. We will send out an email form when the funding closes to confirm everything.
How do I change my pledge level? Hit the blue “Manage My Account” button and you can change it. Your card isn’t charged until the final day of funding anyways.
What a week
