Hi backers! We've been very busy and wanted to give you another update.
We've been making great progress on finalizing both kGoal and also the corresponding smart phone app. Our pilot build this month went well and we have been continuing to scale up our manufacturing processes so that we can deliver kGoal to all of you as soon as possible! We have also been working hard on peripheral elements of the product, such as the instruction manual, packaging, and charger.
We will be starting the full scale manufacturing in a little over a week. Although we've had a few suppliers delay some component shipments, we think we can work around those issues and are still expecting to be able to ship kGoal to you by the end of December (although with transit times some of you may not receive your product until early January). We are doing everything we can to keep the process moving as quickly as possible and will keep everyone up to date as the schedule evolves.
We also know that some of you may have moved since the campaign this summer. So, we're planning to check in about 2 weeks before we ship to confirm up-to-date shipping addresses for everyone - please keep an eye out for an email from Kickstarter regarding that topic in December.
As always, we love to hear from you so please let us know if you have questions or feedback. We hope you're all having a wonderful start to the winter and can't wait to get kGoal to you as soon as we can!
