UPDATE #12: iMpulse White!

1 like

In appreciation of Kickstarter and all the amazing support we've received from you all, we releasing a limited run of iMpulse Controllers in white.

As a limited run, it will cost more for us to make. Therefore, the iMpulse White will occupy a new $37 pledge level. 

KICKSTARTER SPECIAL - if you have already ordered one or more iMpulse Controllers, you can ADD an iMpulse White to your current pledge simply by adding $30 per to your current pledge (save $7 each)!

In order to do this, click on the 'manage your pledge' button and add $30 to your existing pledge - then when you receive the survey from us next week, inform us that you've ordered one or more iMpulse whites.

      Hi guys still waiting here in spain ? thanks

      @Mitch, @Lucian - we are trying to setup a fallback system for those who had problems with their pledges during the last minutes of the Kickstarter campaign. Please email us at info-at-impulsecontroller-dot-com, and we will provide further information when we have it setup.

    3. Creator Mitch Morris on November 4, 2012

      Is it too late to add $7 to my order for the white one? Or possibly add $37 to get the white one with my existing order?

    4. Creator Lucian Lam on November 4, 2012

      Is there a way to still add the white controller to my existing pledge, now that the funding has ended? :(

    5. Creator Black Powder Media on November 3, 2012

      @Alan - no penalty. Simply make a note of your choices on the survey we send out next week.

    6. Creator Allan Lee on November 3, 2012

      I have a problem. I decided to change my order to 1 impulse metal and 1 impulse white and shipping.
      That would mean 45 + 30 +15 =90
      However, I can only select one reward so I selected the Pledge reward for $45. Will I be penalised into not getting the white one in the end?

    7. Creator Black Powder Media on November 3, 2012

      @David - if you want 2 white iMpulse Controllers and nothing else, then the option for you is the TwiMpulse White at $72 pledge level.

    8. Creator David Tran on November 3, 2012

      its for me and my girlfriend, so could i do the $37 pledge and then add $30 to make it to 67 for two white ones?

    9. Creator Black Powder Media on November 3, 2012

      @Eugene - please see our Update #9 - the iMpulse White will share the same control stick as the Black iMpulse Controller.

    10. Creator Eugene Leon on November 3, 2012

      No joystick for the white impulse?

    11. Creator Black Powder Media on November 3, 2012

      @David - we have a Duel TwiMpulse WHITE pledge at $72.

    12. Creator David Tran on November 3, 2012

      so how much would i have to pledge to get two white ones?

    13. Creator Liberty Perucho on November 3, 2012

      LOOKS GREAT! cant wait to get my hands on these.

    14. Creator Shane Felgate on November 3, 2012

      Glow In The Dark???

    15. Creator Black Powder Media on November 2, 2012

      @David - no, the Kickstarter special applies only for an addition to an EXISTING pledge. Therefore, you can pledge $60 and get one black iMpulse, and one iMpulse White.

    16. Creator David Tran on November 2, 2012

      wait... so i can pledge 60 under the twinpulse option and request 2 white ones right? :D

    17. Creator Francois Roy on November 2, 2012

      My point was just that Nintendo emulators are much more popular than any others, so 3rd party controllers should try to stick to this layout to avoid the "press A" (when its B) confusion.
      We're not going to emulate Xbox or Dreamcast games on phones anytime soon.

      Playstation and N64 at best.
      ..Speaking of which..
      We are still 2 buttons short for full compliance with SNES and PS1..

      What about it?
      I understand it is possible to remap and stuff but it still is an obvious flaw.
      Is it too late for that kind of changes?

    18. Creator SantanzChild Lil' Devil of the OO on November 2, 2012

      I hate white electronics but hey good for yall now one of you suckers change your pledge so I can get a .50 special to go with my brushed metal dual pack!

    19. Creator thormawk on November 2, 2012

      I'm in favor for the way it is now, Y X A B. It's like the xbox and dreamcast controller and I doubt the button arrangement is patented.

      Maybe the design on the SNES controllers, but not how you place your buttons. That's apple-level patent stuff.

      Can't wait! Gonna use it day and night. It'll be my buddy.

    20. Creator Denis Surkov on November 2, 2012

      @Francois Roy
      I think it's right as it is now.
      I look at my Xbox controller, and it's identical (Y X A B)

    21. Creator Black Powder Media on November 2, 2012

      @Raphael: If you can't choose now, pick both and give one to a friend :). I'd go with the .50 for rarity.
      @Jesse: do it.
      @thormhawk, @Shane, @Evan: thank you, we owe it all to the support of you guys!
      @Cameron: yes. Just make sure to make a note in the survey we send out next week.
      @Lars-Petter: That's correct.
      @Francois: We haven't locked that in yet, will do so after doing due diligence re: patents. Your observations are greatly appreciated!

    22. Creator Francois Roy on November 2, 2012

      Hey; I just realised the X Y and A B buttons were inversed from the SNES model.
      (Isnt always like this? The NES was B A)

      What's the point?
      It simply will confuse people. MIght seems like a detail, but it does matter.
      Should be Y X B A
      Please fix this .. unless this arrangement has been patented.

      Anyway.. those white versions look fantastic.
      I'm in for the Twimpulse Bare Metal, but I assume those are only plated on one side, right?

      I'd like to avoid buyers remorses.

    23. Creator Lars-Petter Steen on November 2, 2012

      Hi! I already placed $75 for two black controllers for international shipping.. Now I wanted two white ones aswell, so I added to a total amount of $135 without changing my pledge. Was this correct? Sorry if this has been answered before.

    24. Creator Cameron Muncy on November 2, 2012

      So could I just use my pledge of $125 and get 2 black and two white? If I need to pay more I can but just wanted to make sure.

    25. Creator Evan on November 2, 2012

      These are sweet looking! Love the Kickstarter green edging!! Changed my pledge to get this one!!

    26. Creator Shane Felgate on November 2, 2012

      congrats at passing $125k

    27. Creator thormawk on November 2, 2012

      Guess who has a HTC One X that this will fit perfectly with.

    28. Creator Jesse Kirkpatrick on November 2, 2012

      Could I add $60 to my pledge and get two more or is it one per pledge?

    29. Creator Raphael on November 2, 2012

      iMpulse .50 Special or iMpulse White, that is the question.

    30. Creator Black Powder Media on November 2, 2012

      @Adam - All iMpulSleeves will be the same gray translucent. It's simply not possible for us to do a limited run of white iMpulSleeves; plus we think it looks really smart when matched with the white controller as well :)

    31. Creator Black Powder Media on November 2, 2012

      @Mystakill - yes. You could perhaps change your pledge from the Twi<pulse Duel level to a regular $30 pledge, and mention your choice for 1xBlack, 1xWhite in the survey. But instead, you can just leave your pledge as is and mention the change on your survey. The survey options will be the master.

    32. Creator Adam on November 2, 2012

      Just wondering, the cover for the normal iMpulses are looking like a see through grey/black. Which the cover for this one be a see through white?

    33. Creator Mystakill on November 2, 2012

      Ok, I'm still somewhat confused. I've pledged previously at the $60 TwiMpulse Duel level. Can I simply request a black one & a white one on the survey, or do I need do do something else in the interim to ensure that I can get one of each?

    34. Creator Black Powder Media on November 2, 2012

      @Ammar - sounds good, you have a great selection. 1 Metal Finish and 1 White!

      @Joanna - :)

    35. Creator Black Powder Media on November 2, 2012

      @Hugo - we have had a LOT of requests for more Metal Finish. We are trying hard to add some by tomorrow. Also, sometimes Metal Finish units come available as people change their pledges. Currently there is 1 metal finish available. Stay tuned!

    36. Creator Joanna Chia on November 2, 2012

      Madness! My favorite colors! I gonna go crazy! How can I not add this into my pledge?

    37. Creator Hugo Sibut-Pinote on November 2, 2012

      Well THAT is amazing!!! So disappointed though, how come the two metal-brushed with LEDs already sold out ?? Is there a way I could get them later on? Knowing that I live in France...
      Thanks anyway !

    38. Creator Ammar Mirza on November 2, 2012

      Okay so I've added 30 more for the white totaling $90 now, $45 for original pledge, $15 for shipping and $30 for the white controller :)

    39. Creator Black Powder Media on November 2, 2012

      @Allan - If you want to get a black and a white iMpulse for $60, pledge $75, and select the $30 pledge. When you receive our survey, please note your pledge for the iMpulse White in the Comments section.

    40. Creator Allan Lee on November 2, 2012

      Okie, I managed to figure out and changed my order to 2 controllers - 1 black and 1 white with shipping. $75. Thanks!

    41. Creator Danny Bouwman on November 2, 2012

      Ahhh, no white iMpulse with brushed metal bevel?

    42. Creator Allan Lee on November 2, 2012

      Hack, I think I want to get a black and a white one for $60. So with US$15 for shipping, it will be US$75. Please let me know how I should proceed now. :)

    43. Creator Allan Lee on November 2, 2012

      Hi, I have already pledge US$37. So am I supposed to withdraw that pledge and do a full amount or can i just top up US$15?

      Sorry, I'm a newbie at kickstarter :)

    44. Creator Black Powder Media on November 2, 2012

      @Allan - Yes, that's correct. The way to do this is to make a pledge for $52, and choose the $37 pledge. The difference will automatically be allocated to your international shipping charges.

    45. Creator Mario Sarno on November 2, 2012

      Greetings from the UK!

      Oh man you guys are killing me. As soon as I saw these I knew just had to up my pledge, they look absolutely amazing. At least now I can have an impulse at home paired to my tablet and one to carry with me for my phone :)

      Keep up the good work guys, this project is setting a high benchmark that all other Kickstart projects will struggle to reach!

    46. Creator Allan Lee on November 2, 2012

      I like to ask also:
      If I get two, does the shipping remains at US$15 or do I have to add for each?

    47. Creator Allan Lee on November 2, 2012

      I pledged US$37 for the white one. but am I supposed to add the US$15 for shipping when I was doing the transaction? I live in Singapore so I'm not sure how it's supposed to be done to indicate that I was going to need shipping. Please let me know what I should do.

    48. Creator Black Powder Media on November 2, 2012

      @Evan, @Firat, @lOOPK - thank you :)
      @Aaron - OK we will. Thanks for the suggestion.
      @David - it's white plastic.
      @Nastassja - yes, it will come with a "Limited Edition iMpulse White" card.

    49. Creator Nastassja Rhodes on November 2, 2012

      Will these white controllers also have a custom serial number since they are limited edition?
