50% and Project of the Day

Only yesterday we hit the 100 backer mark. Today, we are featured as Kickstarter project of the day and we have hit another important milestone: 50%. A great thank you to all our early supporters!

Built-in speaker

In our previous update, we announced that we will add MIDI IN and OUT to every Dato DUO. What we haven't told you yet, is that every Dato DUO will come with a built-in speaker as well. That should allow for hours of jamming on the couch.

Press coverage

The press have picked up on the Dato DUO story. Here are some of our favorite quotes:

"Dato Duo is a unique concept, in that it offers two playing surfaces for collaboration within the same hardware." – Sonicstate

"Raymond Scott would have loved this one" – AudioNewsRoom

"Dato DUO is an intriguingly playful, simple synthesizer for two, aimed at kids (3-99+)” – Everyday Listening

"Honestly, if someone left this lying around FACT HQ we probably wouldn’t get much work done for the rest of the day." – FACT Magazine

Early birds almost gone

All this attention means our 100 early bird Dato DUO’s are almost gone. Tip your friends quickly if you want them to get on board with a € 30 discount.

Onwards!

While we’re very happy with the progress and attention so far, we still have a way to go before the Dato DUO can become a reality. Help us out by sharing a link to our Kickstarter page on social media and posting the link on your favorite blogs.

Thanks again for supporting the Dato DUO. We love to hear your comments and ideas, so keep them coming in!

      The internal speaker will certainly make it more friendly for little ones, as there will be less cables to trip over / set up.
