We will use the money to assemble a first run of docks as well as well as cover other expenses such as shipping, storage, and so forth. Once we have built this first batch, we will use our experience and the feedback of the first users to adjust the design and go for a big run.
Currently, we are employing local Northwest business http://store.fungizmos.com/ for the production of printed circuit boards. The cases are being built by a local custom auto-parts design and production company. The gamepads are 3rd-party and ordered separately. (We are currently evaluating several brands. If we cannot buy the quantity we need, we will produce our own controllers.) The components will be assembled and packaged here in Portland, Oregon before being shipped out to donors. Funds will go to http://cascadiagames.com/, which will make all purchases and also put up its own money to cover any extra costs.
