Boogie Update

Hello all,  

It's been a long time since we updated. We don’t want to bother you when there are no news, but we do want to keep in touch and let you know that we are still working hard towards shipping.  

So now we have some good news!  

I'm (Nimrod) just got back from HK/China, I was at our manufacturing site. I spent the last 2 weeks adjusting the code to the new hardware, approving the plastics and working with the factory to design the quality assurance tests. 

Here is the final product (please ignore the colors): 

We are very happy with the outcome of this long and exhausting process. Not over yet, but we believe that it will be worth it. 

Now everything is ready for production, the longest part is waiting for the IC (processor). We can only order it now when the code is finished. It should take about 35-40 days. 

If all work according to plan, delivery will start in October, Survey will be sent at the beginning of August.

Again we apologize for the long delays. We’re preparing a log of our experience with the manufacturing process and the twists and turns it took us through. 

We will share it with you once the product is delivered, to give you an insight into what happened. The most challenging part was the decision to change the factory and specs after the campaign. While it caused most of the delays, it also brought about a much better product!

Will update as production proceeds. Thank you for the extra patience. 

 The Boogie team

      Over 5 months and no update. That is neither respectful or considerate.
      Do you think Nimrod has burned through our $185k already?

      Was away, didn't see this update at first. This is good news!

      "We don’t want to bother you when there are no news," No. PLEASE bother us. On a regular basis. Whether or not there is news. Nobody ever complains to Kickstarter that a campaign is communicating too much.

      October? Could be worse. That's good progress! As for "Christmas 2017" (@Arthur), don't forget that after you add time for unexpected delays, you also need to allow for unexpected unexpected delays.

      Thanks for the update. Eager to see the dice—but patient enough that October is okay.
