Short update

Posted by Nimrod Back (Creator)

Hi everyone.  

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.

      Please can I have an update? It's been far too long.

      What's going on? No news since May.
      How is the project going, when am I likely to receive my dice etc.
      A new update would be nice.
      Also, please don't fiddle with the MK1 design before they are delivered. If people then want the MK2 etc, they can then order again if they wish.

      Can we get an update? It's about halfway through July and based on the last update, I expected the shipping survey weeks ago.

      The main website (http://www.boogiedice.com/) for this project is taken offline.
      This was surely a scam. Sorry folks.

      Hi the last update was over a month ago but you have some comments on the 9th saying surveys are coming out... is it possible to get a new update, it would be greatly appreciated its more frustrating not knowing whats going on vs updates explaining whats going on.

      Seems like asking for at least one update a month while the project is behind schedule isn't too much to ask. And maybe stop trying to sell us other stuff when we haven't gotten what we've paid for here yet?

      Almost a month since this update, an early july ship would mean the surveys should be out now/soon right?
