Update #17

Here we go...

Hello all,

First of all, my apologies for the lack of updates recently - it’s been quite a couple of weeks.

The first batch of Projecteos that were supposed to arrive in early April were held up at the China border because customs and shipping required an up to date document that described the product model number and its content. This document is for tax and safety purposes with particular regard to the batteries. The one that our factory were using expired at some point in late March. Therefore they had to apply for a new one. This reapplication took some time because of a Chinese holiday and an inspection of the battery type and model number.

The good news is that this delay gave the Factory enough time to perfect and manufacture the finish on the limited edition units whilst they were awaiting the necessary clearance. This enabled both the standard white and special edition Projecteos to be shipped together last week.

The greater news is that the whole batch arrived in Albany today!

I’m in New York at the moment and will be travelling up to Albany to start fulfilling orders early tomorrow morning.

This means we’ll be sending the next 500 backer codes out this week. If you have received your code by email already, please do us the favour of picking your images and confirming your order at your earliest convenience. The faster we process these early iterations, the faster we’ll be able to get everyones Projecteos into their hands.

I’m super excited about seeing the first batch tomorrow and of course I’ll post pictures as soon as I get there!

Thank you all so much for your support and patience so far, we’re almost there!

Have a lovely evening and as always, drop me a line if you have any questions.

Ben

      Still waiting for a code or any sign of delivery. Pledged at the $40 level. Very confused about when I will be getting this exciting little gem.

      I pledged at the 20$ level and didn't get a code.

      Also, I pledged $20 so shouldn't I have received a code already?

      Hi Ben, I pledge 40 + International shipping. Can I have a rough estimation on shipping date?

      Must all images be from my instagram account? What if I also wanted a couple of pictures from my friend's?

      Oh and @Brendan Dawes - you'll be able to input your address shortly after you've chosen your pictures. This way we know we have the most up to date addresses for everyone before sending.

      @Brendan Dawes - Hey Brendan, we sent out codes to our 200 early bird backers who pledged at the $15 and $20 levels - I believe you pledged at $25 therefore you should be getting your code this week.
      @byteguy - Hey Byteguy, thanks for the feedback! Observations like that can actually really help us out!

      I'm actually sort of glad for the slight delay, picking the 9 pictures for the wheel has proven to be more difficult than I expected. Congratulations on being "almost there."

      Hey Ben,

      Great to hear about the progress. Should I have received an access code and should I have given my shipping address to someone?
