Kickstarter Goal Met!
Wanted to send a quick update and thank you all for your support!
We have reached our Kickstarter goal and are continuing to work to get more press and move the project as far as we can. We have been contacted by a bunch of distributors and investors who seem to be showing great interest in the product and assuming things go well, will help push this product further than we could have on our own. We've had experiences with distributors and investors like this in the past and understand how to keep the contracts from interfering with delivery - as we've gone through situations in the past where contracts did interfere and caused avoidable delays. So, we're on top of it!
IN THE NEWS:
We've been humbled by all of the featured articles on great websites around the world and are doing our best to list them all on the Kickstarter site to give credit where credit is due!
Recently we were interviewed on:
-The Bill Carroll on Los Angeles' KFI AM640 radio show
-CNET's show Tomorrow Daily and thanks to their host Ashley Esqueda for the interview and video!
NEW ORNAMENT OPTIONS:
As announced on the CNET show Tomorrow Daily, we want to announce that we will also be including a plastic ornament for those who have requested that option for their kids and animals and just generically for safety reasons. We'll be adding more pictures and video of the plastic ornaments over the next few days. There is no change to your pledge if you want plastic instead, it will simply be a choice in the post-campaign survey.
We're working on potential stretch goals, but as we've mentioned before, focusing on delivering the core product and making it as clean as possible is our number 1 goal and focus. There may be other features that might do well as a stretch goal, but for now we want to minimize any additional complexity and focus on the core features and product.
Thanks again guys!
-Chris, Hardeep, and the entire Aura Team
