      8 Months of absolutely zero communication with your backers. I had to go and look for the last update in my emails: 8/28/2015. So, what are we supposed to think? Now we're put off until December from what I read in comments? And yet, as an original backer, the first systems were sent out in December, and not a word to those who as backers, ARE STILL waiting?? I'm not happy, and almost sorry we invested in this as a company.

      I received an email today that said "Your Virtuix Omni pre-order from August 28, 2015 is now available". Before I get too excited, what does this mean exactly?

      Thanks for the update, Jan.

      Hi Benjamin, great suggestion. We will indeed strive to make the shipping process and timeline as transparent as possible, so that every backer knows when to expect his Omni.
      Best regards,

      Good to hear, so looking forward to the moment it arrives here :)

      Will there be a way for backers to see which "number" they are in line?

      I was part of two crowdfunding projects where people didn't know what place in line they were and they got pretty mad about it. Also everyone kept emailing and commenting "what place in line am I?" and "What numbers are you shipping right now?". I'm pretty sure you'll get a lot of emails once shipping begins!

      Maybe you could link the order number with forum logins so everyone can see it on their user profile page. I would really recommend that and you could also setting something up along the line of "now shipping 1000-1500" or something like that.

      Thanks for the quick response! It's nice to have a rough over/under on when the Omni will be arriving, especially as the ship date approaches Christmas.

      Hi Robert, the remaining tooling and QC is estimated to take another 2 months, but we are trying to avoid stating hard dates at this time, given that we have been burnt before. Note, however, that the manufacture of 4,000+ Omnis will take several months. The actual delivery of your Omni will depend on when you placed your pledge.
      Best regards,
      Jan

      Do you have a revised shipping estimate? What steps are left?

      If the remaining steps are tooling, final QC, and mass manufacture, each of these steps might take a month. Does that mean we shouldn't expect the Omni until December at the earliest?
