Benni... Actually, for the number of people who came to view the video we got a strong number of backers. I contacted a couple of dozen blogs with information about Elroy. I believe the challenge was that the product is not in enough of a finished state for the technology blogs to present.
We're going to continue the development process and work up a more compelling Kickstarter and then relaunch.
they goal is way too high as there's not too much demand for the device... maybe you should first let all these blogs/media people know about it, let them review it and then start the project again with a possible lower funding goal.
One more comment...I can imagine this product being used to market a company. As a realtor, I am attached to my phone. It would be a great marketing tool to have my company name/logo right there during work hours and another design for other times. The possibilities are just endless. Wish I had lots more money to pledge. Good luck Rob.
TImbuk2 rocks!! i will support your project!
The timeframe for production we expect to be May 2013. Definitely share this anywhere and everywhere you can. I'm working on some larger initiatives including a major press release to 85,000 news media people and 5000 blogs. The timing of the project has been rather poor with the holiday season but I'm confident we're going to pull it out after the first of the year.
Love this idea. Hate losing my earbuds all the time and even more do not like walking around with a bluetooth. This is such a perfect solution. Do you have a time frame for production when you get the funding? How can I help get more funding. I have sent to my facebook friends...any groups specifically?
Ah, gotcha! Actually that is the result of a new policy on Kickstarter where you can't ofter multiples of products in your rewards.
i meant pledge leveles for 2 / 3 or more units
I'll pull together some information on the audio quality. Bear in mind, though, that a lot will depend on how high the funding level goes. I'm going to put good quality audio on this but how good will be affected by how much I can invest in additional development. The samples I have right now sound better than a lot of other earbuds I've used in the past. But, again, I'll get some numbers for you.
I'm expecting these to retail for $129. And I'm not sure what you mean by 2/3+ pledge levels.
nice idea although i would like to know how qualitative the earbuds and the microphone will be at this price - could you provide more specific details?
also - no 2/3 + pledge levels ?
for how much will it retail ?
