      I am gutted - totally! This is a real class product - I do hope that big backers pick this up and run with it.

      Good luck to all the members of the Team.

      Check your email inbox, they sent a message. Such a beautifully engineered system, hopefully they will get a backer, and production will start eventually. There's a lot of rubbish out there, this was definitely a cut above the rest..

      I really hope this has a spurt of pledges in the next 20 days. As much as I want one of these, it doesn't look like it's gonna reach it. You need to spread the word to the tech sites.

      "iPad 3" AKA iPad (3rd Generation) was called "the new iPad" released in March 2012

      "iPad 4" AKA iPad (4th Generation) is called "iPad with Retina Display" released in October 2012

      My girlfriend brought up a point she likes the idea but wishes there was a pink pop color. That might not be a bad idea so you can cater to some of the women that like pink. Or maybe later on make a breast cancer edition.

    11. Simpsons_john.small

      Creator Dragonbait on December 4, 2012

      Ok so that update could be confusing for some.
      You say it now supports Retina and iPad 4.
      But iPad 3 had Retina.
      You should possibly clarify for backers that iPad 3 is fine with the Stealth,POP and LE.
      Only the iPad 4 (Late 2012 model) needs the 'Retina' model as you have badly called it.

      I am worried,... I think the number of backers is not growing fast enough. At the start 85 per day was sufficient, it is now well over 100. I think we need to make some NOISE, otherwise our iPad's will be silent.

      Creator Juan on December 1, 2012

      I was looking at the video clip of the ORA in use while playing a video game and I noticed that the camera whole was small. Is it big enough where it can be cleaned if dust collects on the lense? I had this issue with my iphone 4 Otterbox. I was able to wipe the lense but dust started building up around the edge which was hard to get to due to its size.

      For Stealth and a cover modify your pledge to add $30 and send us a personal message specifying what color cover you want. Once we are funded we will confirm your order.

      Creator OBJEKT, Inc. on November 25, 2012

      Hello Brian,

      We added a secure locking point to make the stand very solid. The locking point provides two angles when flipped. We provides the two most common angles that are used for watcjing entertainment and typing or reading. The locking point secures Ora from collapsing.

      Thank You for your support.
      Ora Team

    24. Missing_small

      Creator Brian Demarest on November 25, 2012

      Why only one point for the cover to lock into? Couldn't you have several viewing angles by adding more attachment points?

    25. Ora.small

      Creator OBJEKT, Inc. on November 23, 2012

      @andy,
      For this kickstarter campaign we are only offering the three Ora Products listed. The only accessories or changes we are offering are the covers. And on Pop the color bezels. Once we are funded we will open The Ora Audio website with more choices at full price. This will be after everyone at kickstarter receives their Ora.

      Thank You for your support,
      Ora Team

    26. Missing_small

      Creator Andy J on November 23, 2012

      The color in the bezel is a selling point. If your going to decide on color options after the project is successfully funded, how would we change the orders because you can't manage the pledges after the project closes. Unless you hit your goal before the days to go run out, I don't see how that' works. Expecially with limited run pledges.

    27. Missing_small

      Creator Andy J on November 23, 2012

      So that would be a stealth/black model with only an orangish cover, no bezel?

    28. Missing_small

      Creator Hector Silva on November 23, 2012

      Okay, so just to make this clear, no Lightning Connector guaranteed on the product as yet folks.

    29. Ora.small

      Creator OBJEKT, Inc. on November 22, 2012

      Andy,

      If you please Stealth and add 30bucks you can choose your cover color. Unfortunately the bezel/pop color ring is only in the gunpowder grey mesh. They are connected. However, we are exploring different color combos, so after we are funded we know what to develop. Thanks for your input.

      Thank You for your support

      Creator Andy J on November 22, 2012

      My pledge would be the same but I want to get this squared away before the limited time pledges run out.

    31. Missing_small

      Creator Andy J on November 22, 2012

      One more question. If I were to order the stealth but want the red/orange cover, does that include the bezel in matching color? I pledged for the ORA POP + Cover/Stand and had wanted that orangish looking model but if I can get the stealth with the same orange bezel along with case then I am set.

    32. Ora.small

      Creator OBJEKT, Inc. on November 22, 2012

      @Sheil,

      You are correct add an additional 30 bucks on your purchase.
      Send us a private email stating you added a case. Under updates you will see complete directions.

      @Andy,

      We apologize for the confusion. You are correct, under Ora Pop there are three color options red (it's a red orange shown on the picture), cyan, and green. The mesh color of Pop is gunpowder warm grey.

      In contrast Ora Stealth is matte black. And Ora Limited is exclusive on kickstarter with premium aluminum finishes and matte white. Thank You for your support. The Ora Team

      How can I pledge for a stealth and seperate black cover? Just pick the $99 stealth and add $30 to the pledge?

    35. Missing_small

      Creator Andy J on November 22, 2012

      I also thought it was only two finishes but now I'm seeing three. So there is the kickstarter exclusive in white, stealth in black and Ora pop in gunmetal?

    36. Missing_small

      Creator Andy J on November 22, 2012

      I'm confused. The ORA pop shown is orange but under the color options, it says (red, green, cyan). That color is being shown on the homepage?

    37. Ora.small

      Creator OBJEKT, Inc. on November 21, 2012

      Eddy,

      Thanks for your inquiry. If funded, we plan on launching ORA on time. We have a lot of experience in product development and have planned accordingly. We are currently working on solving for the new lightning connector but will not be ready until after we are funded. So, we can only offer solutions for iPad 2 + 3 for people to pledge on. If funded we plan on launching a product collection for different platforms.

      I had a hesitation to start backing up projects, but seeing this device I instantly changed my perspective. This is a device I was really looking forward to. A docking station is not practical. Can't wait till June! :)

      1. See post of Eddy Sugihartono: Interresting comment!
      2. It would be cool if the ORA had a switch to either use the batteries for the speakers OR to use it as an external battery to recharge the iPad (Similar like the mophie juice pack air concept)

      I really hope the number of backers starts growing exponentially soon. 450k is a large amount to collect.

      Hi again

      Ignore my last post - I've changed my pledge to include the price of a cover - in BLACK please to match the unit.

      If I need to send a further personal message to you in order to advise of this change, would you please give me the email address to contact?

      I've not included postage as I presume they'll ship together (please advise if different).

      Thanks for your reply. Have a good day.

      Creator OBJEKT, Inc. on November 20, 2012

      @Paul, We hear you on this. This is a limitation we ran into with the kickstarter web-creation tool (we couldn't add sub-choices like "choose a cover" . If you've already ordered Stealth and you want a cover, modify your pledge to add $30 and send us a personal message specifying what cover you want. We will gather the information and distribute accurately when funded.

      We apologize for the confusion, and will add a note to the main kickstarter entry page to clarify this. Thank you for your support!
