Blasted through our $100K stretch goal!
Many thanks to all our backers! It's a great feeling to know that all our work to pull together a compelling product is striking a chord with customers.
I know everyone is waiting to see what our custom Elroy earbuds are going to look like. (I am too.) The designer I'm working with, Joe Urich, has been flat out with the flu for nearly two weeks. That's put us a bit behind on this work. I'm sure he's going to get over his bug in the next couple of days and we'll have some images to share with everyone soon.
It's been great getting everyone's thoughts and questions throughout this Kickstarter campaign so far. Yesterday I spent a good part of the day tracking down battery suppliers. I've taken particular note how important it is to so many people that Elroy have great battery life. Based on our original funding goals I was going to have to locate an existing battery pack that would fit inside Elroy. Now we're getting into numbers where I'm going to tool up our own custom battery. That means we can fully utilize the interior space inside the case. I don't have final numbers yet but it's looking like we're going to be able to squeeze a few more milliamp hours into Elroy, so we can extend battery life to the max. Will keep everyone updated on this as we know more.
Now we're moving on to our second stretch goal of $150K. For this stretch goal reward we're going to make a high quality molded EVA hard shell travel case for Elroy. I've handed my sketches for the design over to Brook at Middlecott Design. Brook's a busy designer, so once he has a little breathing room, he'll come back with some sexy concept sketches for everyone to feast their eyes on.
Once again, thanks to everyone for all your kind support!
