Over 11% raised and new shipping options!
A big Thank you to everyone who backed us so far.
Thanks for reaching over $11.000 in pledges!
As we hoped a lot of you also found their interest in our Rovers and want to help us in our development or maybe just want to have the coolest rover here on Kickstarter. Check out the following clip of the very first tests we did with our first Asimov R0 generation. Note, the Asimov R0 here on Kickstarter is a generation 3 model which is much more advanced, faster and easier to handle.
Also some of you asked for a double pledge option for the Asimov R0, so we will do our best to come up with a fair one! By then you can just pledge for one R0 and add the amount of the second or third unit on top.
Now let's talk about something that most of you have asked us from day 1, shipping:
Yes, we managed to find better shipping options! We've added a section called 'Shipping costs' at the bottom of the project page that will be constantly updated. Also we left no stone unturned to lower the costs!
What we achieved is a $5 cut for everything that needs to be shipped to Europe. So if you are in Sweden, Switzerland or the UK for example, insured shipping will now only be $10.
As follows the current overview of shipping costs.
Shipping is free for the U.S.
$5 for Germany & Austria
$10 for Europe (of course also including UK and CH)
Contact us for other special shipping options. Also, if shipping isn't mentioned then it's free!
So much for today, stay tuned for the next update - which will be much more colourful and technical!
Thanks again and keep spreading the word, show people you are as excited as we are about this project. Help us make this experiment a success!
