September is here. When do I get my Bots Alive robots?
Hi, everyone. I hope you've had a nice summer. I'm going to keep this update short to get back to work on getting to the point where we can send you your rewards.
We're currently on pace to ship your robots and Bots Alive kits near the end of the month. However, that assumes that the various third-party-supplied components—packaging, decals, plastic vision blocks, IR blasters, etc.—come within the timeframes that those vendors have promised. We're highly confident about almost all of these—particularly the vision blocks, which are in the capable hands of Firsthand Fab.
In the interests of transparency, the one item we have some concern about is the IR blasters, which were shipped long ago and were supposed to arrive 2 or 3 weeks ago. We're working with the vendor FastTech to figure out what's going on there; if the IR blasters are stuck in customs, we'll be looking into what we can do to get them through and meet our promised shipping month.
Thanks again for supporting this campaign and making Bots Alive possible. We're thrilled to wrap up development and get the bots into your hands.
Brad and the Bots Alive team
