Looking awesome, can't wait for these!
YES! Finally, looking awesome indeed. I don't mind waiting a bit more now =D.
I work in manufacturing, I understand that delays happen, often (especially on a new product you've never made before). The dice are looking great and I can't wait to get mine! Just keep people posted, even if its to say everything is ok, then the venom will die down :).
When going through the modes, will it cycle back into Power Saving mode after the Rainbow Animation, or will it skip that and go back to red?
You have been communicating with us quite a lot, but when there's nothing for weeks you start to get worried. Thanks for taking the time to tell us what's going on.
Thanks for the update and the wealth of info!! Oh!! These are going to be so eye catching!
How do you get it back to power save mode when you aren't using them? Do they just go into it automatically after not being rolled or tapped on for a certain amount of time?
I'm glad to see an update. I hope after a successful launch the 20 sider campaign will happen.
I'd like to see other D&D related dice but I'm sure a 4 sider would be difficult.
@Matthew - Hi Matthew, when you are not using the dice it will autocratically turn off the led's and no power is being used. Note this is NOT power saving mode, it just goes to sleep. Once you roll it again it will be in the mode you last used i.e. all red mode.
Power saving mode is only for shipping, once you exit power saving mode you won't be able to access it again (even if you take out the batteries).
But along as you don't keep Luma Dice loose in your bag i.e. letting it move around too much it should't turn on much or at all. Also placing it back in the packaging for transport prevents it from turning on.
We even tested walking around with Luma Dice in our pocket and it didn't turn on. Of course you probably can't run or jump around but walking is fine. So overall we felt transport shouldn't be a problem.
I hope that makes sense, I might have made it sound more complicated then it is lol.
@PunkTiger - As above - but yes you won't be able to cycle back into Power Saving mode.
@Ben - yes we are working on the D20! But want to have the manufacturing side locked down before we get our campaign up and running.
@Stuart - Yes 100% your right, we will make sure to post an update much sooner.
@Everyone - I feel my last comment made Luma Dice sound more confusing than it is!
It's very simple really
1. When you get your Luma Dice tap it for 10 seconds continuously to exit power saving and enter normal mode.
2. Tap for 10 seconds continuously to change color modes.
That's it! Nothing else you need to do ;)
LUMA DICE TEAM
That's pretty exciting right there.
A D20? That sounds awesome. I don't even game anymore. I just want one...to have..because...cool :)
Will the packaging indicate how to reprogram them (10 second tapping) for those of us in the retailer teir? Or we have to inform staff/customers?
Thanks for the update, looks GREAT! No worries about teh delays -- I'd rather have a GREAT product late than a poor product on time...
That video (and the over the top music) was fantastic. The dice look spectacular, and I'm glad to see them coming along by the thousands.
Hopefully August will be our magical month for them to start hitting the mail.
Awesome. Can't wait.
d20 for the win!!!!
Awesome! Can't wait to get these in hand, and to back the d20 project!
@Michael Richard - we have a card in every dice box that says "Please go to www.lumadice.com/manual to turn on your dice". We will have clear and simple instructions at that link before we ship.
Yap, pulsing animation that's going to be my favorite setting.
Cant wait when I'll get my dice ;)
Soooo looking forward to getting this dice and showing it off to everyone.
Looks Awesome! Out of curiosity, I see the Dice and the boards, are you putting them together yourself?
they all look really good, but they also all look the same color. Are we only getting one color die now?
man im so excited for these to arrive
@Creator - have sent you a private message. Would appreciate a reply. Are you shipping the first 8,000 or will you wait a couple weeks for the other 8,000 to be finished before you start shipping??
@Steve, they probably just took a picture of the non colored ones. You'll still get your color from the survey.
@Ahmed, they mentioned in the comments section they are finishing production for all of them before shipping.
Hello, Does anybody know anything ? It's been 2 weeks since the last update any idea if they are shipping soon ?
This is not fair. I gave u funds up front for such a long time...where are my dices?
@Kurt, you aren't buying a product. You are basically giving people free money to hopefully use said money to invest into their creation hoping it becomes a reality. In exchange for giving them money the reward you with said product. Generally things here rarely go on time and delays are expected.
any news on shipping?
Shipping date isgetting closer.
*anxiously waiting for them to be shipped*
NBD if it's delayed again.
*internally rages and thinks about smashing coffee table*
Update on shipping would be nice! Thx!
So when will I get mine finally...
=D Anxiously waiting to tap those dice and see them in person. Tap tap tap tap tap tap!
These look amazing and in super excited to try them out! Do we face any additional updates on the project? It's been 3 weeks since this update!
...another update would be most welecome
Hell, we're past the 4 week mark.
An update is a pretty reasonable thing to ask about. Hopefully they're on the cusp of completion and simply want to wait to actually be done to reach out again, but I think when "2-3 weeks" becomes "4+", unless they're going to finish in the next couple of hours they should do us the courtesy of addressing what is going on.
June 1: 12,000 boxes. 0 product.
July 3: 8,000 units. Assuming a 'unit' is one die, that's 33% of the way done. Needs 2-3 weeks to finish the other 66%. Meaning production began the last week or two of June.
August 3: Units should have been done a week ago. Assuming they need to box and get things ready to ship, I'd expect an update by the end of the week saying "They start shipping on Monday".
If we don't hear anything by next Wednesday, then I'd start to worry. Until then, everyone chill out a bit.
HI Min !?!
I send you a mail, your FaceBook page is dead and we don't have any informations about the shipping.
Could you please answer, thanks !
Hey can you please letting me know where my dices are?????? Honestly I regret backing ur project.
I'm trying to be patient waiting for delivery but any chance of an update? I'm hoping for delivery before Christmas (plenty of time) but Sooner the better, keep up the good work and please let us know what's happening
So patiently waiting. It's been 4 weeks since the last update. Almost 5 weeks. A shipping update would go a long way.
Update would be nice tho every update as to when product will be done has been followed up weeks later a new finish date so Im not holding my breath.
Could we please get an update on this project? Your website appears to be blank now and it's raising some serious concerns: http://www.lumadice.com/
I'm getting ready to move soon, do you think these will arrive before october?
Can you please publish another update and please include when you think we can expect units to be delivered to us
Depending on how well the d6 I've ordered comes out, I'll definitely look into the d20.
Mine finally arrived! Love them! A little light of the feel, but they roll well, and the wow factor is awesome! Very happy with the product!
Just got mine! 4 dice are great, but two are dead upon arrival. No lights.
