Risks and challenges

We have been working extremely hard in the past months to minimize the risks. The latest prototype works perfectly and the design has been scrutinized to guarantee manufacturability. At this moment, we are almost ready to enter the trial production phase. We’ve got veterans in manufacturing and supply chain management in the team.
However, as we are chasing the ultimate performance at extremely low price, we don’t have many options of component selection. We have worked very closely with our suppliers, but still we are not controlling everything. Even though the chances are very low, if any unforeseeable circumstances occur, it may delay the shipping date and we will send you a notice explaining it.
Team PERCEPTION NEURON is a group of perfectionist and hard workers. We will only deliver products which we are willing to spend our own money on. We believe we will start shipping in February 2015, if not sooner.
