Dear backers,

THANK YOU!

Last Tuesday, just after midnight, our campaign ended and you helped us pass our initial goal to get going with the Ubi... many times over. We're thrilled to be working together with you to bring a voice-enabled environment into reality and are at the same time deeply humbled with the responsibility to delivery to you an Ubi in all its splendor. 

So, what now? 

We're already deep into work to get the Ubi ready for production. We're preparing the Ubi to go through the certification process for CE, FCC, and other certifications. For you, our plan is to:

  • Send you updates about our progress at least every three weeks (if this is too much, let us know and we'll help you stop the deluge) 
  • Send you within two weeks the link to pre-order more Ubis, if you went with that option towards the end of the project 
  • By mid-October, send you your Ubi color selection survey 
  • By December, start sending you details of the SDK and online portal 
In the meantime, thanks again for your faith, trust, and support. In exchange, you'll be the first ones to wield this amazing new technology.

Sincerely, 

Amin, Mahyar, and Leor

      Hi Leor, just a thought regarding INTERNATIONAL shipment please consider to send it via normal courier and not UPS, since from my experience on other kickstarter projects i backed if you send it through UPS we will get charged big fees, not just custom taxes and so on.., and it seems at end of the day we pay twice the price of my pledge as in normal circumstances we should pay around 23% of taxes.... i think this way you will please lots of other INTERNATIONAL members like me heheh

      The more updates the better, I think everyone is very eager to get more news and get these in our hands. Honestly, I would love to see/hear more about the SmartThings integration and what kinds of things will be preprogrammed into the Ubi, as SmartThings is set to delivery in December while Ubi will be February.

      I'm fine with updates everyday :). Can't wait for this to get into my hands. Or should I say, get computing out of my hands. "Hello computer..."

      Clarify please...

      "Send you within two weeks the link to pre-order more Ubis, if you went with that option towards the end of the project "

      Is this just the link, or will the pre-order also be needed in just 2 weeks? I was really hoping I could wait until after the new year so I could allow the costs of the holidays not have to factor in.

      Thanks.

      Updates every 3 weeks? OK, it's better than what I've had from many projects. But feel free to toot the horn as often as you want.
