Happy Holidays Kickstarters!

Wow, it has been a long and crazy ride since our Kickstarter campaign ended in April of last year. It may be almost 2 years late, but we made it. We are delivering on our promise and we are shipping a quality product we are proud of. For those who thought Galileo was vaporware and that we would never ship anything, thank you for fueling our fire. For those who kept believing in us and were so extraordinarily patient and supportive, we forever thank you.

Shipping Status:

Of the 5227 backers, we have already delivered Galileo to 3900 of you. By the end of this week we will have delivered 4500 Galileos (Bluetooth and 30-pin) to 4200 individuals. After this week we will have shipped to 95% of you in the US. International shipment is a little more difficult. We are still waiting on phone numbers and freight payment from most of the remaining international backers and will fulfill the remainder after the holidays.

If you are interested in having additional Galileos for the holidays, you can now order from our website at motrr.com/store. But not without a discount!

For the Bluetooth model, use promo code GiftaGalileo for 20% off.

For the 30-pin model, use promo code RemoteGalileo for 30% off.

Free 2-day shipping on all orders and if you order by Thursday, delivered by Christmas.

Just for fun, here are a few awesome Spheres captured using Galileo + Sphere app

Update #47

Sphere

This is a game changer.

Every once in awhile there comes along a disruptive product that challenges the norm. We believe the Sphere app and Galileo integration is one of those products. 

The founder and CEO of Sphere, Charles Armstrong explains: blog.up.co

Here are the top three tips for getting started with Galileo + the Sphere app: 

1. When you insert your iPhone into Galileo, be sure it fits snugly so that it doesn’t fall out or wobble.

2. Open the Sphere app and tap Galileo from the menu. Once the Sphere app and Galileo are connected, rotate your iPhone to landscape. You’ll feel the Galileo “pop” into position – once fully extended horizontally. (Also, be sure the iPhone orientation lock is disabled. Watch this video to see this in action: https://vimeo.com/73265898)

3. If you have people in your immediate proximity, ask them to remain still while your iPhone is pointed at them. For best results, avoid placing your Galileo too close (within 4 feet) of other objects.

For more detail visit: http://inside.thesphere.com/galileo

In 3 minutes you can record a sphere, view it, and share with anyone. (Sphere sharing options include: Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest, Google+, Email, text, HomeAway and VRBO and more options planned.)

It takes about 90 seconds for the Sphere app – paired with Galileo – to shoot around 40 photos that are then stitched together into a spherical image. The processing takes about a minute. Publishing to Sphere takes less than 60 seconds. Then the sphere is shareable.

If you own a business – and don’t want to engage a pro photographer – you’ll appreciate the value of the Galileo paired with the free Sphere app to create spheres like this one: https://www.thesphere.com/127365 and then add it to your website with nifty embed code.

The Sphere app – with Galileo integration – is FREE and available in Apple App Store today!

Sphere + Galileo works with iPhone 4S, 5, 5C, and 5S.

Great news Kickstarters! We have a NEW app joining the Galileo platform called, Presence by People Power.

Bring your aging iOS device back to life and repurpose it with Galileo for an immersive remote monitoring experience. You can access the live camera view over WiFi or even over cellular data.

Download the free Presence app on your iPhone or iPod Touch. Dock your iDevice into Galileo. Open Presence on another iDevice to control the camera view with a swipe of your finger, from anywhere in the world. Presence works on your iPhone 4S, 4, 3GS, and iPod 4

The app is FREE and available in the app store: Presence by People Power

Repeat from Update 45: Important shipping info 

If you have not received your 30pin Galileo yet, please read carefully.

For international orders, note the text at the bottom of the Sales Order confirmation email. Your order may have an "Amount Due" from unpaid international shipping fee AND/OR you have not provided your phone number. Kindly transfer the correct amount to payments@motrr.com via Paypal and include your Sales Order number as well as your phone number.

If you are in Brazil, kindly send us your CPF number. It's the only way we can get your package through customs.

If you have a mixed order (30pin and Bluetooth) we will fulfill your entire order together when the Bluetooth model arrives.

If you are waiting for Galileo Bluetooth, we have NOT sent out any confirmation emails yet. We will do so in batches once inventory has arrived at our warehouse. We are scaling production for Bluetooth Galileo and moving as fast as we can so we can ship to you as soon as we can. We expect the first 1000 Bluetooth Galileos to arrive next week!

SDK

The new SDK was just released and our developers are hard at work integrating the new SDK into their app in time for shipping. Please show them your support :)

Keep beta testing! If you have a feature request for an app, please go directly to the app developer for the biggest impact.

We are getting to your emails and messages as fast as we can, there’s a lot of them :) Please review the previous Kickstarter updates first for answers to your questions.

For the last few weeks we have been posting time-lapse videos of the week taken with TimeLapse app and Galileo. See this week's on facebook. The best way to send us your videos is via twitter @motrrmotrr. Thank you so much for sharing!! 

For additional Galileos, use promo code 'motrrkick12' for a special Kickstarter discount ;)

We have come such a long way and it's only getting better from here!

Update #45

Galileo Bluetooth is in Production!

Galileo Bluetooth is officially in production! We will finally be compatible with the latest iOS devices. We know, it's about time...

Galileo Bluetooth supports: iPhone 5S, 5C, 5, 4S and iPod Touch 5

We expect the first batch of 1000 units to be airfreighted to California in 2-3 weeks. We will post on Facebook the day they arrive at our HQ!

Important shipping info

If you have not received your 30pin Galileo yet, please read carefully. 

For international orders, note the text at the bottom of the Sales Order confirmation email. Your order may have an "Amount Due" from unpaid international shipping fee AND/OR you have not provided your phone number. Kindly transfer the correct amount to payments@motrr.com via Paypal and include your Sales Order number as well as your phone number.

If you are in Brazil, kindly send us your CPF number. It's the only way we can get your package through customs.

If you have a mixed order (30pin and Bluetooth) we will fulfill your entire order together. 

For domestic orders, please provide your phone number.

If you are waiting for Galileo Bluetooth, we have NOT sent out any confirmation emails yet. We will do so in batches once inventory has arrived at our warehouse. We have a hard time keeping up with the email volume as it is, please respond ONLY to the order confirmation email with any changes. Much appreciated :)

If you are launching your own Kickstarter campaign, learn from our mistake and collect phone numbers as part of the survey. Now that we've shipped over 3000 Galileos all around the world, we realize how necessary they are. Issues like incomplete delivery addresses, locked gates to enter apartment buildings, and international customs holds could have been resolved more easily and faster with recipient phone numbers. If you are going through the shipping process now, feel free to reach out to info@motrr.com and we can try to help.

Thank you Steve for capturing this awesome time lapse video of the week! Comment here!

That's all for now :)

Thank you all so much for your patience and support!!

Update #44

Halfway there!

Hey Kickstarters,

We have now shipped 80% of the 30-pin rewards in all 3 colors! Galileo Bluetooth will be ready on the heels of the 30-pin model and will start shipping in early October. We learned a lot about the manufacturing process with the 30-pin model and expect things to go more smoothly as we transition. We are doing everything to go as fast as we can to build the best Bluetooth Galileo possible. Thank you all so much for you patience and support.

Motrr app

The latest version of the Motrr app is now live on the app store! Please update to the latest version and if you think it's an improvement, please help us out by rating the app and writing a review!!! Your support means everything :)

International

If on the Sales Order confirmation email we send you there is an "Amount Due" greater than "0", please send the amount to payments@motrr.com via Paypal so we can fulfill your reward. Include your Sales Order # for reference. Also, include your phone number! FedEx requires phone numbers and we have had a lot of returned packages because of this. Thanks!

iPhone 5S, 5C, and iOS 7

The connector didn't change again, yay! It's ok anyway, we're using Bluetooth :) Galileo Bluetooth is compatible with the latest and greatest: iPhone 5S, iPhone 5C, iPhone 5, iPhone 4S, and iPod Touch 5.

The new SDK will be finished and made public by the end of the month so developers can update their apps to support Galileo Bluetooth and iOS 7. For a demo of how Galileo Bluetooth works, see it in action with Sphere.

Share

We love seeing the content you create. The time lapse sequences, 360˚ panoramas, videos, vines, reviews, and ideas you've shared have been amazing! Check out what people are creating on our youtube channel or search @motrrmotrr on twitter. Keep up on facebook for the latest updates.
