Hello backers and the world,
We regret to inform you that we have decided to cancel the campaign due to the fact that our progress has stalled never having kicked off in the first place.
As a team, we truly do believe that natural interaction will be the next technological revolution in human computer interaction, and more and more sensors will surround our everyday lives. Computers are becoming smarter and more sensitive, and thus can be programmed to better serve the simple tasks, while people can focus on things that actually require cognitive power. This technology is on it's way up regardless of single applications.
We made some mistakes in presentation, but most important in properly promoting this campaign. We did virtually no marketing before hand relying too much on the kickstarter platform itself, never actively put up videos showing off the interactions, and then rushed to get it out. We narrow mindedly spent all our focus on the technology aspect, never having wondered in great length how people would actually end up using it in the real world. We wanted to pack in as many features as possible and having the people figure out the rest, and of course that is not the way to go. Despite that, the largest factor was the fact that we never did end up getting featured on major tech publications, and as a result barely got any views, numbers in the low thousands. Our biggest feature article only came out this week, and that is of course 4 weeks too late. We stayed in stealth up until the very launch, and had we came out before showing off the technology, this likely would have been avoided.
However, we ended up learning a lot from this campaign and from our backers. We thank all those who believe in this product. We also kindly ask you to please fill out a quick survey to help us better assess what you all thought of the device. It would really help us identify the key traits that were found to be most compelling, so that we can go back and create a better product. We have to isolate the core functionality and then perfect that, make it more user friendly and communicate our vision and plans better the next time around.
