We wanted to post a short update just to let you know that we’re still in the manufacturing stage and hope to have the units quite soon.
We had some small setbacks in production. Things that we couldn’t predict before but this is regular for this process. For example, through rigorous testing we discovered the mic was too close to the vibration motor, and after few hundreds rolls it would break. Another thing that held us back a bit was switching to a more sensitive tilt sensor which is much better in games but required us to work on a new algorithm to wake up the dice. To awake up the dice, players needs to tap it 3 times on the table (then it stays on for 60 sec or more, which is something you can set in the app). With the new sensor, each tap created many triggers, so we had to filter them out using the mic.
We hope to start delivery in June but most likely it will be early July. We will send the survey 3-4 weeks before the delivery.
I want to thank the people that sent us encouraging and supportive comments and messages. We got a lot of feedback from people who have some experience with product development and know the challenges and obstacles. We appreciate it, truly.
Thanks you from the entire Boogie Team.
