Hey everyone, thanks so much for all the continued interest in hiku. Please pardon our long public silence ... we've been quiet, but far from idle.
hiku is alive and well, and we have some exciting news ... we are opening up a few spots in our private beta to the Kickstarter community!
That's right, we've already built our first run of hiku units and are beta testing them now. You guys have been so supportive, and we would love your hands-on feedback on the product.
Space is quite limited, but if you would like to be considered for this early access, please fill out this brief survey. https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1hw6_89OiJm7MEszOmHS1uB12AAl2scNqu-fYr1sSRvI/viewform
Kickstarter participants will be selected by June 15, and devices will ship out immediately.
Even if you are not selected this round, all is not lost. We will open up the beta to the public in the not too distant future, so stay tuned!
Q: How much does the private beta cost?
A: We are making it free to the Kickstarter community on a limited basis. When we open the beta to the public, we will charge a one-time fee to participate and receive a device.
Q: What is included in the private beta?
A: A hiku device and hiku iPhone app. We will talk about Android plans closer to the public beta.
Q: Can I access the hiku API in the private beta?
A: Not yet. The private beta is meant to dial in the experience of simplifying shopping. API access for third party developers will follow.
