      Please give more details on what you plan is if you cannot find a solution for APO addreses

      Thank you, @Gerry. We very much appreciate your continuing support, and we are so glad that you like both Turbo and Fusion :) Yup, that is so right ... the width and overall size was a design decision based on different toilet sizes and user comfort (the cutout was dictated by toilet base diameter so that it can fit nicely under the bowel when not in use and then we wanted to give just enough width for the footrests so that it is comfortable for most). THANK YOU so much again for your continuing support and kind comments ... could not have done it without all your support and encouragements on the way.

      Got mine yesterday. Terrific! A little larger than I anticipated, and in general, both the Turbo and the Fusion (I have both) are a little wide (in order to accommodate the shape of the toilet, so this is not a design flaw but a design decision). But great design and great quality. Congratulations on another success!

      Got it yesterday, and I like it. Everyone of my roommates are asking "Bro , what the hell is this?" And I have told them "It is an extraterrestrial hemorrhoid repellent."
      Thanks again! [P]oo[p] luck on your next big thing. See what I did there....

      @Mihir: Love your comments :) Hope you get your FUSION soon!

      "I will make a giant poop wall after I use FUSION and make plumbers pay for it when my toilet is clogged. Believe me, believe me! Doctors are making ton of money while we are getting hemorrhoids. That's crazy folks!" ~Annoying Orange

      I know I am basically spamming, but I really need this product.

      I received mine, great product, but unfortunately scratched and stained surface.
      I reckon this happened during transportation.

      Please advise,

    12. Tikeswar Naik 2-time creator on June 12

      @Oliver, hope you like it. Thank you for your support!

    13. Oliver James Louis Sparkes on June 10

      Just received it, many thanks

    14. Mihir Patel on June 8

      Lol. Got it thanks!

    15. Tikeswar Naik 2-time creator on June 8

      @Mihir: Please do not hold it for too long :) On a more serious note, as mentioned in the last update, we should be shipping the US orders this coming week! Container just got unloaded at the warehouse today, and then it takes them a few days to put it in inventory before we can ship. If I get a chance I will post an update sharing some pictures of the unloading at the warehouse today ... so as you can see we are real close!

    16. Mihir Patel on June 8

      Can you help me locate my package please? I still don't have any tracking number yet and also, I haven't pooped since May 28th in anticipation of the fusion. Thank you.

    17. Tikeswar Naik 2-time creator on June 8

      @albert, @Paolo, @Veronica, @Holger: Thank you so much for your kind comments! It really helps and encourages us!!

      @Holger: Yup, both were shipped separately (sometimes we have to do that for international shipping weight consideration to some addresses). I had emailed both the tracking numbers, if you have not received my email please let me know. Hope you get the other one soon.

      Thank you again for your kind comments!

      I just received one of the 2 that I've ordered today, I wonder where the 2nd package is at but I guess it will come within the next days, at least I hope so ;-)

      As for now I gotta say I am liking the product for real, it is great. Except the white ended up being a little dirty or scratchy from the black parts of the foot rest (or however it is called in english hehe) I'll try to clean it with some plastic cleaner... other than that I really like the product and I am anxious to give it a few more tries ;-)

      My first kickstarter where I received something early. Wow thank you. I do find the adjustable part seems to come out easily, but I'm hoping this stool will make a difference for me

      Received mine today in Australia, the quality feels good. Liked the aired protecting wrapping, reminded me of a floating pool bed haha.

      Hello @Chieko Inagaki: Thank you so much for your comment! Much appreciated!!

      @Everyone: Yup, we did sent out most of the International orders (addresses we received by 05/22), but I am lagging behind sending the tracking info, hope to do that soon. US container will arrive this weekend at the LA port and depending on custom clearance + transport to fulfillment center + unloading, we hope to ship out the US orders mid Jun.

      Sorry, oops!, I meant to write this on other campaign.

      I didn't even receive a survey. (Head scratch???)

    26. Tikeswar Naik 2-time creator on May 11

      Hi team, I just received a response from Kickstarter regarding the survey issue ...

      "Thanks for reaching out. We’re working to resolve this issue, and hope to have it all fixed soon. In the meantime, these backers should try responding to the survey using a desktop or laptop computer and accessing their Kickstarter account using a web browser. Thanks so much for your patience and understanding, and sorry for any inconvenience."

      Lets give them some time to resolve this issue else I will just get your address via email.
      @Oliver, acknowledged ... thank you!

    27. Oliver James Louis Sparkes on May 11

      Just had a "survey reminder" email and that link doesn't work either, straight to the home page again

    28. Tikeswar Naik 2-time creator on May 10

      Hello @Nicole, I have contacted Kickstarter about this issue and let you guys know as soon as I hear back. But in the worst case you will just email me your address+ph.

      Survey link NOT working on my iPhone. But it works on my laptop.

    32. Tikeswar Naik 2-time creator on May 9

      Hello @Jason, @Diana: This is really strange, and not sure what is going on as many backers have already successfully completed the survey. I will notify this issue to Kickstarter, but in the worst case I will just get your address+phone via email (so not to worry).

      I'm having the same problem. I can't respond to the survey. Link is just sending me to the kickstarter home page

    35. Tikeswar Naik 2-time creator on May 9

      Hmm, @Oliver, you are the second person reporting this ... so it may be a bug with Kickstarter??

      Anyone else having this issue? Also anyone who had this issue but was able to fix it? Please let me know (or please just comment here).

      Couple of thoughts from my side:
      1. First log in to your Kickstarter account and then click on the survey link in the same browser.
      2. Also, when you log in to your Kickstarter account, do you see a notification at the top saying you need to take some actions? Could you please try clicking that?

      We prefer the survey so that we have the same format for all the addresses and we have all the addresses at one place. However, in the worst case we will get your address via email.

      Link to survey doesn't work, it just take me to the kickstarter home page

    37. Tikeswar Naik 2-time creator on May 9

      Hello @Nicole: That is quite strange as we have already received many responses. Could you please email me the screenshot (of any error message you see) to nadialabsinfo@gmail.com, and I will take a look. Rest assured we will make it work, one way or the other.

      Hello @Davide, the massage roller is detachable, so you can easily take it out if you do not want it. However customers like it not only because of massaging, but also because it adds some color to the turbo stool and looks nice.

      Davide Artale on April 22

      Sorry for asking that, but there is a chance to have without that roll massage thing ? Simple straight?

      Thanks

      @Tikeswar: Thanks for the colorful and complete answer! Especialy the " Even in one sitting sometimes when I need an extra push, I quickly switch to a higher gear and then switch back to a lower gear for the rest of my drive" definately deserves some credits! I can't wait switching those gears, we've all got a race to run!

    49. Tikeswar Naik 2-time creator on April 10

      Btw @Tom, that was a great question, which I love to answer :) So THANK YOU for asking! And I don't think you expected me to write an essay on that :))

    50. Tikeswar Naik 2-time creator on April 10

      Thank you @Tom!

      Regarding the different levels, I see it something like manual-transmission with 4 gears → choose a gear depending on the situation and preference :) If someone has a shorter height for example, he/she may want to use the higher levels most of the time to get enough squat, and similarly if someone is tall, the lower levels should give enough squat most of the time. Also if someone is a pro squatter, he/she may prefer the higher levels and a beginner may start with one of the lower levels and as he/she gets more experienced/comfortable can try the higher ones (as you have mentioned). In my case, I would say I am a pro squatter, but still sometimes I like to take it easy and cruise at a lower level (just relax and chill). Even in one sitting sometimes when I need an extra push, I quickly switch to a higher gear and then switch back to a lower gear for the rest of my drive (because changing the gear is so easy).

      So level 1 to 4 is not necessarily an evolution, it is more like a choice based on personal height and taste.

      Regarding the actual naming of the levels, I was just thinking of giving some 'personality' to the levels, if you would, so named it such! It was just for fun :)
