iMpulse is the SMALLEST wireless controller for mobile devices - it's also a key finder & media controller! (iPhone/iPad, Android, PCs) Read more
This project was successfully funded on November 4, 2012.
The last 4 weeks have been more hectic than ever before here at Camp iMpulse! We normally have an update for you every 2-3 weeks, but July had every member of Team iMpulse working their ****s off to get iMpulse Controllers into your hands!
Thousands of plastic parts are pouring in from Team Plastics. Now that the molds are completed, they are working INCREDIBLY well, and the parts fit together perfectly and look amazing! The facility has 2 pressing machines running 24/7 to get parts completed, and Team Plastics are just screamin' along!
At Camp iMpulse - testing, assembly and packaging operations...
Printed Circuit Boards:
We are currently moving Printed Circuit Board construction to a new facility, also based in Los Angeles. They are equipped with VERY high-grade machines capable of managing high volume orders, and will also be able to maintain our high quality standards - check out their cool factory!
To ensure that it's at your fingertips at all times, we posted all our documentation online. Learn EVERYTHING you need to know about connecting, testing, keyfinding and more at our portal - http://my.impulsecontroller.com/ - please visit as soon as you tear open your mail package!
Fun Fact: By NOT adding a paper quickstart guide, we save 8000 sheets of paper (yay ecology!) and also avoid stepping into the next postal weight tier, saving $2500 on shipping (yay economy!)
You can test your iMpulse Controller and learn what the buttons are doing with the help of iMpulsify, our cool cross-platform App. Remember, the iMpulse DOES NOT require iMpulsify in order to work with your devices - our App is just a great way to learn about what your Controller is doing, how to change modes, have easy access to supported games, and much more. Plus, it's FREE. Links to the iOS, Android and Mac/Win versions are on our portal http://my.impulsecontroller.com/
Where is my iMpulse Controller?!
We hear you - you all filled out your survey, and now you're concerned that your iMpulse Controller hasn't already reached you. Why so long, you ask?
First - we have already shipped out nearly 500 Controllers. Second - we have 7500 controllers to assemble, test and ship out over the next 2 months, to countries all over the world - New Zealand to New Mexico, Norway to New Guinea! We're working hard and ramping up production as we go. It feels great to have overcome all the obstacles of development, and now to also successfully defeat so many issues relating to assembly, production, packaging, postage, logistics, customs and customs forms, and more...!
We WILL email each of you as soon as your iMpulse Controllers are in the mail, and advise tracking information where we can (currently, USPS provides tracking info for the U.S., Canada, and also several countries, for First Class Package Mail as well).
That's it for now!
