      @Shaun — Just 2.4GHz for now.

      @Sam @Robert — Hey guys, sorry for the delay. We had some issues with USPS international shipping today and yesterday, that we're hoping to sort out tomorrow. Your Beta units are packed up and ready to go, stay tuned for tracking numbers as soon as I have them. Don't hesitate to get in touch with any questions: beta@electricobjects.com.

      Thanks,
      Jake

      Hi, I'm a beta backer living in South Korea. On March 6 I sent a message asking about shipping schedule and Jake respond that it would be sent by "early next week". But still no tracking info yet. When can I get it??

    3. Creator Robert Jurd on March 24

      Hi there, any update on when the beta's will be shipped out. I've heard a few times that it will be soon but no tracking info or confirmation yet, assume I'm back of the queue as I'm in London.

    4. Creator Shaun Bender on March 21

      What wireless band will be supported, 2.4GHz, 5GHz or both?

    5. Creator tau_ceti on March 17

      did i mention that it is ludicrously easy to put images on the EO? well it is.

      my 9 year old figured it out instantly. we were upstairs while he was downstairs changing images. not that he isn't tech savvy. but still.

    6. Creator Electric Objects on March 16

      @tau_ceti Wow, really appreciate the super kind comments. It's a terrifying thing to send a new product into the real world, but hearing something like this makes it all worthwhile. So, thanks.

      @Jason/Ken — So sorry for missing these comments! Yes, we're still on track for May. I'm thinking about collecting feedback from Beta users and sending that around in the next update.

    7. Creator tau_ceti on March 16

      PS By no tape, I am referring to a Kickstarter I had a while back that was sent held together with tape. :(

      Sorry, got carried away with internal references only I would understand.

    8. Creator tau_ceti on March 16

      I got my beta. I'm not sure if it's ok to say anything. Maybe I signed an NDA… I don't recall doing it though! Ok, hope this doesn't upset anyone as I don't intend it to (except for Gleb… curse you Gleb!)!!!

      Anyway, I am a member of a bunch of Kickstarters, including the colossal failure of ZPM Espresso (give me my money back Gleb!), and this one stands out as having brought product to completion quickly and with high quality.

      The packaging is top notch. The unboxing experience and setup are flawless. These guys did a good job. No glitches. It just worked. No tape, no crap. My only question was why they even needed Kickstarter for something this ready for prime time.

      This does NOT look like a beta product. It's finished. High quality.

      Honestly, I found it more finished than any new Apple product (which always have show stopper bugs of some kind). Disclaimer: I own lots of Apple stock and have no investment in EO except for this one beta unit which I paid for as did any of you.

      Just give me landscape mode and I'll be super, ultra, mega happy!

    9. Creator Ken Lee on March 16

      @jason thanks

    10. Creator tau_ceti on March 13

      looks like my unit gets here monday according to both UPS and the eo team. better than most kickstarters, i expect!!!

    11. Creator Jason Dunn on March 13

      @ken if you look back to comments 7 days ago from this one you will see they are still on track to ship in May

    12. Creator Ken Lee on March 13

      Y/n maybe?

    13. Creator Jason Dunn on March 12

      That was it just good to hear we are still on track

    14. Creator Ken Lee on March 11

      Production update and shipping for non beta backers

    15. Creator Electric Objects on March 10

      @Robert this week! (yours is probably going out today/tomorrow)

    16. Creator Robert Schouwenburg on March 10

      Any update when the remaining beta units are shipped?

    17. Creator Electric Objects on March 6

      @Jason Sure! I'll put an update together next week. No updates on May, as we remain on track. Anything in particular you'd like to hear about?

    18. Creator Jason Dunn on March 5

      Hope your event is going well today but I was wondering if we will see a production update soon thanks

    19. Creator Electric Objects on February 13

      @James Yup, you could just plug it into the Wemo I'd think?

      @tau_ceti Yes! We're working on docs now. Shoot me an email or at beta@electricobjects.com and I'll point you in the right direction.

    20. Creator tau_ceti on February 11

      So as a beta backer, I'm assuming I'll get a unit soon. As an artist, I'm expecting I'll be able to create works for it. Where can I find out about what steps I'd take to get my art onto the EO?

    21. Creator James Stone on February 10

      ..Ignore my previous comment... Just read that landscape isn't instantly supported. Unless I make images and rotate them i guess?

      One other question, could I wire this up to a Belkin Wemo so that it only turns on when someone is nearby? i.e. what is the startup time from sleep, if such a thing exists

    22. Creator James Stone on February 10

      Looking forward to receiving this, one question (hopefully not too stupid) but can it be displayed 'landscape' too? Just thinking for adding some of my own artwork to it

    23. Creator Electric Objects on February 6

      @tau_ceti Yep, it's a small wall wart. No brick!

    24. Creator tau_ceti on February 3

      ^at

    25. Creator tau_ceti on February 3

      What's the end of the cord? A wall wart or a plug?

    26. Creator Electric Objects on January 31

      @tau_ceti Good question. We spent a lot of time finding a cord that we're happy with. It's a high quality white material. To hide the cord completely, there are a few options: use a cord concealer, get an electrician to help you run it through the wall, or use our custom EO1 Stand (which we'll be announcing in further detail soon). Hope that helps!

    27. Creator tau_ceti on January 31

      I'm sure this has been covered somewhere, but as a beta tester in the greater NYC area, I'm hoping to get my EO1 soon and just realized…

      What about that pesky cable? There must be some strategies for dealing with it that you've come up with. I have a few plugs in the house that are at rather odds levels and perhaps could be taken advantage of. Plus, I have a GC in the house who could install a plug at an odd height.

    28. Creator Electric Objects on January 30

      @Robert — Thanks for being so thoughtful about placement! It's a matte IPS LED display. EO1 has an ambient light sensor so it adjusts the brightness according to the brightness of the room, and we keep the brightness much lower than traditional screens.

    29. Creator Robert Corkum on January 25

      @ creator, Hello! You mentioned the "resolution is 1080p (1080x1920) and brightness is 300 nits." any idea on the contrast ratio? And what other characteristics does the display have? TFT/IPS/LED/etc.
      .
      I'm looking at where it will go, like a sunny room, near a window, and want to compare it to what I know thus far. Thanks!

    30. Creator Electric Objects on December 6

      @Edward — Thanks! We're unveiling our participating artists weekly over at http://zine.electricobjects.com/interviews/

      We'll announce additional partnerships in the coming months!

      Thanks,
      Jake

    31. Creator Edward on December 5

      Hey guys, congratulations on the progress! It says you are compiling a bunch of art from libraries artists ect. when do you think it will be available/ where will I be able to access this archive??

    32. Creator Electric Objects on November 26

      @jbrowne Hi! Looks like you already filled out your survey, so it won't work any more.

      Did you want to make a change? If so, email us at hello@electricobjects.com.

      Thanks!
      Jake

    33. Creator jbrowne21 on November 26

      Kickstarter Backer Survey response link, sent out Nov 24th seems to be broken. Kickstarter glitch?

    34. Creator Electric Objects on November 24

      @Robert Yup! We have it designed and prototyped, and it looks great. We're launching a home for all of the accessories early next year, ahead of the May ship date.

      Jake

    35. Creator Robert Zander on November 24

      Any additional information on offering some type of stand for the EO1, for those of who prefer not to hang it on a wall? Thanks.

    36. Creator Electric Objects on November 24

      @Scott Hi Scott! We designed an accessory frame system that gives you much more flexibility over time, and makes Annie's (the woodworker) job a lot easier. When we launched the Kickstarter campaign, we weren't sure how we were going to handle assembly and shipping, and this seemed like the most reasonable way.

      To set it up, you'll simply pull off the inner frame that comes with your EO1, and snap on the wooden frame, no tools required. The wooden frame will look exactly like it appears on the Kickstarter page. We just got the prototype frames in, and as someone who barely owns a drill, I can assure you that it's a very user friendly experience!

      Hope that's acceptable to you! If not, email us and we'll figure something out.

      Jake

    37. Creator Scott on November 24

      Just received your email stating that the wooden frame will be shipped separately and to choose a colour of white or black which it will be attached to. Not sure this is what was offered and sounds a lot like it's going to be bolted on to the standard frame? Is this correct and if it it I assume it will make the whole thing protrude? I'm also being asked to attach it!

    38. Creator BonanzaNLD on November 16

      Updates anyone??

    39. Creator Electric Objects on October 23

      @Mark — The resolution is 1080p (1080x1920) and brightness is 300 nits.

      Thanks,
      Jake

    40. Creator mark nigogosyan on October 22

      Thanks for the update. You said you ordered the LCD panels-what is the display resolution and brightness (in nits or lumens)?

    41. Creator Electric Objects on October 17

      Hey all!

      Sorry for the delay, update love coming your way next week. All is well in EO-land :) We're busy, but the good kind of busy.

      Jake

    42. Creator Ken Lee on October 14

      I have faith in the E01 love - but would like a little update love

    43. Creator BonanzaNLD on October 12

      I am getting concerned. Am I the only one?

    44. Creator Richard on October 11

      I'm wondering the same...

    45. Creator BonanzaNLD on October 8

      Maybe I completely missed something, but where are the updates on production, suppliers, developments, last minute changes etc?

    46. Creator BonanzaNLD on September 22, 2014

      Where is that eagerly awaited update?

    47. Creator Richard on September 3, 2014

      Okay, great!

    48. Creator Electric Objects on August 28, 2014

      @Richard Yep, lots! I'm sending an update out soon. Stand by... !

    49. Creator Richard on August 27, 2014

      Any progress on the development?

    50. Creator Electric Objects on August 13, 2014

      @Brett — I'm not sure, but we'll look into that.

      @Jon — The plan is to bill now, so we have enough money to pay for the units.

      @Denis — Thanks!
