Risks and challenges

There are still challenges in reaching a very solid system after bringing all the pieces such as the jewelry, software, apps, firmware and the traffic servers all together. Another challenge is keeping up with the demand. It would require literally a city full of craftsmen to handle handcrafting of the pieces. A test process is already in place to try out production prototypes and clean all the hardware and software weaknesses and bugs. If everything goes well in all the hardware, the software and the art; all the gift samples would be shipped by mid November two weeks after the end of the campaign and just before the thanks-giving holiday. All the features have to be extensively characterized and analyzed statistically in detail to reach a robust design.
