Preparing for Launch
Greetings Kickstarter Backers,
It's Joerg Tewes, the CEO of Avegant. I wanted to personally reach out to thank you for your support so far and give you an update on our shipping and launch.
As many of you know from our last update, today was our final all-hands meeting to approve of the final Glyph build and officially start up the mass production line. I'm thrilled to report that we've passed all of our compliance requirements and that we're prepping the factory to start building product. It's taken a bit of time to lock in compliances, so the first official Glyphs are scheduled to come off the line in the first week of January. Packout and shipping will start later in the month. First units should start arriving at your doorsteps shortly thereafter.
With the official launch of the Glyph, we're also overhauling our website and branding. Tomorrow, you'll see a fresh new Avegant.com with new product photos and a few new videos. Keep an eye on the forums for some of the finer launch details.
Building on that launch momentum, we'll also be taking the Glyph to the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas from January 6-10. I would like to personally invite you to visit our booth for a demonstration of the product. We'll send out special invitations to this list later this month.
There's much more to come. We're also working on a solid firmware build, a mobile app to facilitate updates and a spectrum of partners to ensure that you have special content ready to go when you receive your Glyph. In other words, it's all hands on deck.
Thanks to all of you for your continued support as we put the finishing touches on the Glyph. As I’m sure many of you know, building breakthrough products is never an easy and straightforward process -- your patience and understanding throughout this year means a great deal to me. We’re doing things that have never been done before and I'm confident that the wait will be worth it.
Finally, from all of us here at Avegant, have a safe and wonderful holiday season and best wishes for the new year.
All of my best,
Joerg Tewes, CEO Avegant
