Progress Update

Posted by Hauteworks (Creator)

Dear Backers,

Here is our current progress update.

Tooling and painting are looking great, firmware and app development are in their final stages, and we are ready to print packages. However, we are still waiting for certification test results, namely the EMC for CE, FCC, and KC. We are expecting the results by the 27th. In principle, it only makes sense to start manufacturing after the test results. Nevertheless, we plan to prepare 500+ units so that we can start shipping as soon as we get hold of the test results, even with the risk of wasting everything in the unfortunate case of failing the test. So in summary, do expect some delay if you are further down the list, we will be shipping out Rayo in pledge order. Some may wonder how much delay there is going to be. It's hard for us to provide a definite date at this time, but we will say that we will do our best to ship the last Rayo within two weeks after the first shipping starts. Please accept our apology for the delay.

1. Tooling and painting

We have applied the correct surface finish to our tooling and tested paint colors. Everything looks fine except the blue which didn't come out as expected. We are working on this to get the correct 'Royal Blue.' Also, we plan to tweak the 'Lemon Yellow' and 'In the Pink' to get a little more gloss.

2. Package design

This is the package design for Rayo. It is a 12 x 12 x 6 cm box in which a snug foam securely holds Rayo.

This is all for this update.

Thank you.

      @Steven We are still waiting for the test results which are scheduled to be reported by the end of this week. Nevertheless, as mentioned in the update, we are currently preparing Rayo to be ready to ship as soon as the test results arrive. We hope to provide good news soon!

      It's exciting to see the real Rayo. I hope to receive my unit soon.

      @Thomas Sorry for the delay. We will be starting shipping once the test results are reported and we will do our very best to ship every single Rayo within two weeks once shipping starts.
