Six Months On: Design Awards and Other News

Dear Backers,

It’s been a little over 6 months since we shipped out all the HiddenRadios to you guys. We want to share some updates with you as well as share what we’re up to since shipping the units to you guys.

Firstly we were incredibly humbled to receive a 2013 iF Design Award for the audio category. The iF Award is one of the most important design awards in the world and is judged by a series of professionals from BMW, Philips, Nike and the list goes on.

We could not have done it without you, and we must really thank you guys for supporting us and we hope you all take some pride in the award as well! Click here to see the iF Online Exhibition.



In addition, the HiddenRadio is now available in the San Francisco MOMA. We’ve always browsed their cool products and dreamt of one day being there! To see it on their shelf is a huge reward. All purchases made at the SFMOMA go back in to the community in the form of education programs, so please help support them; they do some really great stuff.

We’ve also been listening to you guys and what you would like next from us. Many of you asked for a red version of the HiddenRadio, so we listened and here it is:

It is a limited edition of 500 units in Metallic Red available now. Check it out at our website. We are also offering free global shipping to our Kickstarter backers, just enter the following code: RED500

Lastly, we distributed over 10,000 units to our backers and as with any technology company there will always be a small percentage of products that don’t meet the high standards set for them in the field, or sometimes something just goes wrong. We are still honoring our policy and replacing all defective units for Kickstarter backers. If you are experiencing any issues please email us at support@hiddenradiodesign.com so we can resolve your issue.

Thanks again and we wish you all a great week!
John + Vitor

      My radio seems to have "died" after used very sparingly...it will not take a charge. I have plugged it in via electrical outlet and computer...nothing.

      Nice work on the red one guys, the video looks very slick! Can't wait to see it in person.

      Hi Imtiaz, we have been working through each case. Not sure why your case was missed though please email again so we may rectify this.

      I am a original backer, when I received my product the Bluetooth function on the speaker did not work and I was only able to use it with the wire which defeated the object. I have not used it since and have found it to be a huge waste of money. I have tried contacting your customer support on numerous occasions and I even contacted you via kickstarter but have not had a reply. I FIND THIS VERY APPALLING AND YOUR CUSTOMER SERVICE IS NON EXISTENT. Having been very exited about your product I have been left very disappointed and I will never buy any other product that you release and I wouldn't recommend your product to any one.

      A VERY UNHAPPY BACKER

      Hi Daniel, please email support@hiddenradiodesign.com so we may follow this up with you.

    9. Creator Daniel Reilly on March 20, 2013

      I am an original backer of this project and I still have not received the product I ordered and paid for. Your customer service dept has effectively ignored me after 5+ requests for an update.

      I wish I could say something positive, but I'm still waiting for simple delivery of the product. Please step up and fulfill the order.
