1001(+) Heroes

Things I'd never guess that would happen: reaching a thousand backers. And as a cherry on top, the Hero-edition has been pledged! All people without custom colours now get this anyway and those that selected custom colours originally will get the option to have a laser-signed wooden backplate! 

(disclaimer: not actual version we will make)
(disclaimer: not actual version we will make)

So, contrary to previous update: you do not need to over-pledge for custom colours. Feel very free to revert to original pledge if you've done this! 

Pictures!

I have some back-plate and bottom frame samples, so for your viewing pleasure:
Kelo, Cirly Birch, Maple, Walnut, CarbonFiber, Brushed Steel and Brushed Black Steel.

The casing connecting to your phone will look something like this (NFC, SMD and magnets not yet in place) and the bottom piece with mock-up keypad looks like this.

Updates on HW

The contact pads will be available in matching colours instead of just white for everyone. There will be white, green, blue, red, black and yellow (not shown). We will select the most matching colour per casing for you. Small update, but a nice finishing touch!

 Updates on SW

Software is advancing very nice and we will probably release a feature video on all channels before the campaign ends!

      "Question about the laser engraving: could there be an option to have your own signature (i.e. owners name) on the backplate? This could be either instead or together with the designers signatures?"

      That would be awesome if there can be my nickname Hobi
