      Got mine today (May 16th, 2013).
      Two coasters & the keyring.

      TOP NOTCH stuff indeed... worth the wait.

    2. Creator UKay Cheung on May 15, 2013

      i am still waiting too :)

    3. Creator joshua naranjo on April 29, 2013

      still waiting...

    4. Creator Misha Vyazmensky on April 29, 2013

      Yes, April 29th and still no word...or sign of it... any update would be good...

    5. Creator Matt Enos on April 29, 2013

      Any way to find out if / when my KeySquare has shipped? I seeing here that everyone has received theirs, but I have no ideal of where mine is. Thanks!

    6. Creator MIKE KRAY on April 28, 2013

      I finally received my KeySquare yesterday. Worth the wait, yes. It's beautiful! Frustrating though because they should have taken care of the backers first. Just sayin.

    7. Creator Linh Doan on April 28, 2013

      I received my KeySquare yesterday. It looks and feels fantastic. Great product!

    8. Creator Kris VanVolkenburgh on April 25, 2013

      Everyone needs to simmer down, KickStarter isn't Amazon. There is a reason these projects take time, they are built from scratch. He's going to get you your KeySquare as fast as possible. Until then buy beer in a can.

    9. Creator jeremy chan on April 24, 2013

      @Chris Reinhard - Using his updates as an indicator, he sent an initial 1000 out, with another 500 the following week. With the most recent 300 being shipped, I'd rough it out at 1800! If they are outputting at about 65 per day, I expect everyone's orders will be fulfilled before the middle of May by my estimation.

      I'd wager there are issues with shipping due to the bombing in Boston, if that's any consolation. I can only hope I'm getting mine soon!

    10. Creator Chris Reinhard on April 23, 2013

      Adam, if you just sent out 300 last week, how many does that make? I, too, have not received my KeySquare and am beginning to wonder if I ever will.

    11. Creator Jonathan Douglass on April 20, 2013

      @Phu Mai - Thank you for your prayers. Although my attempt at writing a facetious reply had good reason, I'll admit that my life might not seem rough when reading the only comment I have ever made on this site. ;-)

    12. Creator Bobby Robertson on April 19, 2013

      Awesome comment, Phu Mai. Haha

    13. Creator Phu Mai on April 18, 2013

      "Dealing with the let down I encounter everyday, rifling thru junk mail at the curb, when I realize my KeySquare is not in my hands, is exhausting."

      Wow, life must be really tough for you, huh? I can only imagine. In any event, I will say a prayer and keep you in my thoughts so that you don't suffer too much from your "exhaustion."

    14. Creator Adam Hogsett on April 18, 2013

      We're getting them out as fast as we can. Just sent out 300 more yesterday.

    15. Creator Jonathan Douglass on April 17, 2013

      My excitement has faded into disappointment... Dealing with the let down I encounter everyday, rifling thru junk mail at the curb, when I realize my KeySquare is not in my hands, is exhausting. From December to April, and most likely mid May.. Im guessing my reward won't work to well on boardshorts, now that its basically summer...

      How bout instead of tracking info for each backer, an update with accurate ETA for the backers by state or region of KeySquare destination...

    16. Creator David Anhalt on April 17, 2013

      come on guys, you need to work on your communication or half your customers are going to be really pissed off. if you are fulfilling website purchases before your kickstarter backers that is poor form to say the least, and if you aren't then come out and say it.

    17. Creator Sean Newman on April 16, 2013

      Got mine in the mail today. Worth the wait, thanks guys!

    18. Creator David Alonso on April 16, 2013

      Backed this project back in November and I'm trying to be patient... but I just want my keysquare. Now.

    19. Creator Ryan Petrimoulx on April 16, 2013

      In the same boat as the general tone of this thread, also an original backer. I even email this project to see what the status was (and had also emailed two other projects I backed). This is the only one I haven't heard a response from. Pretty disappointed now.

    20. Creator Ben Leal on April 15, 2013

      like others, still waiting for mine to come in.

    21. Creator SHANAN MARKLEY on April 15, 2013

      I haven't received my KeySquare yet and I was one of the original backers. Do you have tracking on the orders?

    22. Creator Matthew Thomas on April 15, 2013

      Lke the rest of you... I'm still waiting for mine to come in... perhaps it got lost in the mail???

    23. Creator Corey Sammon on April 14, 2013

      Just wanted to thank you for the updates. However, it is a bit of a bummer to be an original backer and see that those ordering off the website are getting their orders delivered. Still waiting on getting mine unfortunately...

    24. Creator Ryan O'Hara on April 14, 2013

      "We're done taking orders for March. They're in the mail! " Directly off machine-era.com website, this was also further supported by backers that posted in the general comments section. I don't doubt that most of the Keysquares for the original backers are in the mail as well, but I guess the strange USPS bulk mail situation that required 2 extra weeks tacked on some extra time to the shipment.

    25. Creator Bsincere on April 14, 2013

      Guy stuffing envelopes, keep stuffing. Guy stuffing envelopes falls asleep, wake up and hire some one with all that money we gave you to start stuffing again. Guy teaching me how to open a bottle of beer with the product i ordered back in december, insulting. Can I have have what I gave you money for now, please. Ill take the one in the video now that i know how to use it...

    26. Creator Phu Mai on April 14, 2013

      Where did you hear that? I agree if that's true, it's disappointing but again, I'd be interested to know where that information is coming from and how reliable it is...

    27. Creator Ryan O'Hara on April 14, 2013

      I don't mind waiting for a quality product but it is irksome to hear that the online store is up and individuals purchasing keysquares online are having their orders filled before those that backed the project in November/December. As a courtesy to those that provided the capital to put the Keysquares in the online store, I would have preferred to see all the backers receive their reward before online orders were taken and fulfilled.

    28. Creator Phu Mai on April 14, 2013

      It's best just to let the complainers complain. No matter what anyone says, they're gonna keep whining about where their reward is for backing this project (despite the consistent updates from Adam).

    29. Creator Jasonfive on April 14, 2013

      Backed in first 36 hours and havent recieved it or email notification of shipping.
      I don't think shipping is in order of date pledged

    30. Creator Zach Thompson on April 14, 2013

      1. You didn't buy anything but rather bacled a project and as a result of your pledge you receive a gift. 2. They got 8 times the amount they budgeted for which requires more materials, more man hours and more patience. Ive yet to receive my "gift" but its all in due time. Be patient people and if you cant handle kickstarter then dont pledge.

    31. Creator MIKE KRAY on April 14, 2013

      I was the # 214 backer and am still waiting for mine to arrive.

    32. Creator Martin Tran on April 14, 2013

      I got mine a week ago. No more key chains magically disappearing from me S-biner and D-rings :]

    33. Creator jenny scott on April 14, 2013

      I was just wondering when the keychain that I bought in November was going to arrive?
