      Hi I pledged for the one we'll and was wondering if filling out the google survey late would hinder me getting the Welles on time. I filled it out today after not seeing the message on 7/6. Sorry still new to the Kickstarter process and would hopefully like to know if I still get the welle?

    5. Richard Mou Collaborator on July 25

      @Alexander We are still on track. Currently we are finalizing the packaging design and sourcing components inside the box. Sorry for not updating but you will soon see an update. We are waiting for some components to be delivered to our office.

      @Richard, hi there. I'm not sure if I have completed the backer survey. Could you help check ? Many thanks

    9. Richard Mou Collaborator on July 17

      @Arief Hi, we have been collecting survey results and the survey ends a week ago. We have collected enough result to ensure most of you get your prefered Welle color. We are at the stage of tooling and modeling right now. Everything is working steady and fast. No worry! Will keep all of you posted.

    11. Richard Mou Collaborator on June 20

      @Loan Hi there, you can find the link at the bottom of the latest update. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1781885077/welle-turn-any-surface-into-a-smart-interface/posts/1889424

      We will look at whether Welle fits for the control of Adobe Lightroom and put it into a request list. Thank you for your support!
      If you have more questions, feel free to send a message or an email to support@getwelle.com

      Hi. I have not yet received any survey. Is that normal?
      Have you looked at the possibility of controlling Adobe Lightroom?

    13. Richard Mou Collaborator on June 18

      @Wil Hi, thank you very much for your support! You can fill out 1Y2B in this case.

      Thanks for the update. I have filled the survey. But I have pledged for three Welle and could only choose between all yellow, all black or a combination of 1 yellow + 1 black. I could not specify it but I would like 1 Yellow and two Black Welle.

      Thank you!

    19. Richard Mou Collaborator on June 16

      @Justin The survey for address will be finalized before shipping as some of our backers may move to another place. Actually we will send out a survey soon to ask for preference of Welle color. Stay tuned.

    20. Richard Mou Collaborator on June 16

      @Andrew Sorry for the delay. We will update all of you the progress soon. It has been great!

    21. Richard Mou Collaborator on June 16

      @Guido S Thank you very much for your support. We are working with multiple manufacturers and we are at tooling and prototyping phase. We will soon update all of you the progress.

      Can't wait to read your new update. Are you going to post picture of more prototype or product versions ?

    25. Mark Zeng Collaborator on June 7

      @Cristian Javier Durán Rebolledo Thanks for your comment! We are actively dealing with our suppliers after the Kickstarter. Everything is right on the track and there will be a new update in the coming days! Please stay tuned!

    26. Mark Zeng Collaborator on June 7

      @Ebrahim Welle can not only recognize fingers but also pens. With Welle, you can simply turn a pen to a stylus for ordinary surfaces!

      it surprises me how it's been weeks since you reached the goal and your last update (may 14) but still we haven't received any news on how the production process is going. I'm interested in knowing how the money from my pledge is being used at the moment.

      Care to update soon? I don't want to feel like it's a dead project and I wasted money on my pledge

      Hi, can I move e.g. A pen on a surface and watch on a screen whether the pen is moved into a rectangle as an example?

    29. Richard Mou Collaborator on May 19

      @Jess Hi Jess, this is set up using a projector with Welle. It is trying to demonstrate a potential usage in future office and meeting environment. For this version of Welle, we are trying to keep it simple and make it an input device, so the projection part will not be included. We will definitely consider integrating with projector manufacturers to enable this feature. Stay tuned!

    30. Jess Sinues on May 19

      I saw some images that shows Welle being used in conjunction with image projection on a flat surface, how do you set this up? Is it also a feature of Welle? If not, will this feature be available in the future?

    31. Richard Mou Collaborator on May 14

      @Joe Thank you very much for supporting. We are thrilled that Welle has come to live. We will be sending out a survey to all backers and please fill in your prefered one. Stay tuned to our next update.

    32. Joe on May 13

      I will have to get the black one. Very very very

      Nice looking

      congratulations on this huge accomplishment! greetings from one of the latest pledgers (at 21 minutes left)

    35. Richard Mou Collaborator on May 12

      @Sorin Thank you very much for supporting. The main difference is input richness. As you can see, Welle tracks your finger with fine precision and with that, user can define a lot of gestures (theoretically countless). Additionally, touching, swiping and writing are natural and rich, compared to binary input (knocking) that Knocki provides.

      Sorin Dan Belean on May 12

      Can you tell me please how this is different from Kickstarter "Knocki: Make Any Surface Smart".
      I did pledged for both of them. Thank you.

    37. Richard Mou Collaborator on May 10

      @Joe Thank you for supporting Welle. You are AWESOME!

    38. Joe on May 10

      @Richard I love that this is cool. Ok thank you for replying to me.

    39. Richard Mou Collaborator on May 9

      @Joseph Absolutely. You can stick Welle on your refrigerator surface and that surface will turn into a smart interface.

    40. Joe on May 9

      Team: Can I turn refrigerator surface to be smart? Thank you for fast reply

      @Desura We can emulate mouse movement under Mac/Linux/Windows, but we don't support general mouse clicking emulation at this time. It would be more like a touchscreen experience while interacting with Welle, so we would suggest use cases as internet browsing and gaming. However, developers can use our APIs to unleash the power of Welle, so please stay tuned for our news and updates! Thank you for supporting us!

    42. Desura on May 8

      So I've seen you can have a driver to emulate a mouse (is it available for Windows as well ?). But what about clicking emulation ? Will we have to implement special gestures for that ?

    43. Richard Mou Collaborator on May 8

      @Manfred The device recognize the exact position of your finger. Also, it can output recognized gestures as well.

    44. Richard Mou Collaborator on May 8

      @Guido We are still refining the API as we are doing an upgrade on the firmware lately. The API will be ready before the first batch delivery for sure. We will post on Github once it is ready and definitely give you an update on this one.

    45. Manfred Lamplmair on May 8

      Does the device also recognize the exact position of my gesture or only my gesture?

      Guido S on May 8

      Hi

      Do we get some more info on the API and technical specifications before the campaign ends?

      You mentioned earlier that there will be an update on the topic.

      Have a nice day.

    47. Richard Mou Collaborator on May 6

      @Conor Thank you very much for your suggestion here. We definitely can give some suggestions for you to design your own board.

    48. Richard Mou Collaborator on May 6

      @Aatif It is fine. Wish you receive your Gotube soon. Thank you for your support here!
