@Joanna — Can you get in touch at firstname.lastname@example.org?
@Tarus — Absolutely! All of that functionality will be in the app soon.
@Jason Dunn — Can you email us with shipping issues? We're email@example.com.
@Jason Hayes — Yes, shipments are ongoing. I'll get an update out this week with additional details.
I have a vacation planned the 9th of July through the 22nd if you have not shipped my units by the first of July I ask that you hold my shipment until the 16th or17th of July so I don't have expensive items sitting on my door for weeks thanks.
Is shipping still proceeding as planned? How many units have been shipped out now? I still haven't recieved anything.
Will the Sleep Schedule and Brightness be added to the Phone Apps? Would be nice to be able to just use the phone app and not have to also use the web.
Also, any news on shipping of white displays? I've gotten my Black display with stand and it is looking great.
Hi, any news about shipping and delivery time? I need to ask, because we are soon starting holidays and will be only from time to time at home. I am located in Europe so I guess first thing that will happen will be customs departament trying to catch us and charge import fees. It will be complicated because part of the holidays we will spend abroad. Are you able to deliver parcel by July 13th? (I am leaving 1 week for customs departament formalities and actual delivery). My second concern are duty fees. What kind of document will you deliver? (Invoice?) Could you lower total amount, eg. by showing 0 as shipping cost. Can you eventually send a product as prize or gift? And finally: what overseas delivery method did you choose? (I hope it is not some ship :-))
@Richard – Sorry for the confusion! It is the latter: you have to load an image into the system to change the display.
So just to clarify regarding network folders: I can point EO1 to a network folder and as I add images to that folder, EO1 will automatically display them? Or, I have to manually load each image onto EO1?
@Russell – We are looking into features like this for updates down the line!
@Richard – You can display images from folders on the Upload page, simply by selecting "Choose File" and navigating to the folder.
@Russell – Sleep schedule preferences can be found on your web profile. Once logged in to electricobjects.com, if you go to "Settings" in the drop down menu under your username, the "Sleep Schedule" options can be found at the bottom of the page. Below this you can also find the "Smart Brightness Beta" settings, which can be turned on or off.
Sorry for all the questions......I saw a youtube video where it was mentioned that the EO1 could display images based off of input from weather, other api's/external inputs, etc. Is this something that is coming in the future? Also, i know that slideshows are not planned to be an option, but will there be an option to automatically switch artwork periodically (i.e. each day a different random piece of artwork is displayed)?
Also is there a way to adjust the brightness or the ambient light settings?
I don't see the sleep schedule in the settings menu. Am I missing something here?
Can EO1 display images from a network folder?
@Shaun Thanks for letting us know! We're thrilled to hear you're happy with the experience so far. (You'd be shocked to know how much engineering work went into that setup process, and the time between when a user hits Display and the art appears on EO1 :)
Please keep the feedback coming!
Unit arrived yesterday and was really impressed on how it was boxed. Great work and care on that part. So far everything has been a smooth setup process, everything has worked perfectly. Selecting different art from the iOS app is almost instant(within one or two seconds max). From a technical side was kinda bummed to see it only showing "802.11g". Would have been nice to see an 11n radio. So far everything is perfect. Great job!
@Jason Definitely, thanks for the feedback.
Great update but can you do another one soon about the app we haven't seen much about how it functions?
@Jason Hey Jason! No change from the last update in terms of delivery dates. I hope to have an update to share with number of units shipped by end of week.
Thanks for your patience! Email us with any questions at firstname.lastname@example.org.
How about an update!?!?!?
@Tom – You can definitely display your own pictures! Both from the web as a URL or direct uploads.
@Sjors – Send an email to email@example.com!
If not Artkick, will we be able to stream pictures of our own and from the web or are we reliant on your artist offerings? ( in which case I would greatly regret making this pledge. )
Hi, maybe a bit late, but is it still possible to order the stand?
@Shaun – Still under development! When you install your EO1 you'll be given the link to download the app.
Hi, when will the iOS app be available?
@peter Shoot us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org, if you don't mind, and we can help you out.
@Hester Yes, you do need to plug EO1 into an electrical outlet
@Tarus Yes! Just confirming everyone's addresses. Still on track for production and shipping kicking off end of May, and finishing up in the 4-6 weeks following kickoff.
Pre shipping email received.....yea...
Looking forward to getting my EO1. Sorry if this is an obvious question (I'm way below lo-tech), but will I need to plug the thing in to an electrical outlet?
Excited to recieve my EO1.
Just wondering if you'd be willing to post dimensions/sizes of the wooden frames? I ordered a plastic but would love to make my own wooden one - "art held by art".
Even a how to, on removing/replacing the frame?!
@Tom No plans to integrate with Artkick at the moment, but we'll take a look!
Will it be possible to stream Artkick to the EO1?
Awesome thank you
@Jason @Kyle Hey guys! Sorry for the delay. We've been traveling a bunch. Looking good for end of May, we'll send a proper production update within the next week. This week we're working on getting firm delivery commitments from our manufacturers / suppliers for the build.
Insert crickets chirping track here.
I'm with Jason. Could you give us an idea when you might be shipping the EO1's. Something general is reasonable and fine.
Just checking in wanted to see how production was coming along and make sure we are still getting these in little over a month?
@Geo A — Certainly do appreciate the feedback, and with that in mind, we are considering a change in the future to the way the product is bundled. Thanks for your support and your candid comments.
@Scott Yup! The Stand will work with the wooden frame
Stand update, not frame.
Jake, maybe I'm the only one but I've only just found the vines over at https://vine.co/u/1107799703107850240. There's some fantastic promotional stuff on that page. The vines really demonstrate how good the product looks! I think my wife will even forgive me for purchasing this when it arrives!
On the frame update, can it be attached to the unit with the wooden frame? I'm assuming yes.
@Creator - My guess is part of the appeal of crowd sourcing a product like this is the unparalleled and immediate access you have to feedback. Like many, I'm very excited to receive my EO1 and have been pleased with the project/updates up to this point. Also like many, I'm less thrilled with the stand and the price you've decided on. You mention that "EO1 is designed primarily for the wall, and we view the stand as an accessory for people who want to bring it into their home in a different way." Perhaps, but the product is depicted on the stand more often than it is wall-mounted (I'm on mobile, but in the details for this project, six of the first eight images depict the EO1 on the stand, the reveal in your original video shows the EO1 on a stand several times before we see it wall-mounted). While I do feel you made it clear that the stand would be available later, to me it felt like a rather essential accessory in the way it was marketed and that it would come in at a "no brainer" price point, not ~13% of the price of the frame itself. To then defend the price based largely on the notion that's it's optional seems to run a little counter to the way the product was originally presented. This isn't my area of expertise, but I can't help but think that we wouldn't have been left with a bad impression had you shown the EO1 wall-mounted near-exclusively with one or two images on the stand, not the other way around. Still, I'm hugely excited to get my EO1, my intent here was simply to share a bit of feedback.
@ P.G. — Really sorry if there was a miscommunication. EO1 is designed primarily for the wall, and we view the stand as an accessory for people who want to bring it into their home in a different way.
We did mention in the campaign that the stand would be sold separately (see the "Designed to Fade Away" section), but my apologies if that wasn't clear enough. The reality was that we weren't far enough along with the design and manufacturing of the stand to know how to price it at the time of the campaign, which is why we're launching it now.
Hope that helps explain our thinking here. It's a really nice accessory, but excluding it from the core product helps us keep the product less expensive, and for the majority of people who will hang EO1 on the wall, it would be an unnecessary addition.
Feel free to get in touch with any follow up questions. Happy to continue the conversation here.
I'm also disappointed about making the stand an additional $40. It's expensive and regardless of what it is made of it should have been included in the original price point for backers. You want us to spread the good word but, to be honest, this leaves a bitter taste in my mouth.
@Simon (To be 100% clear, this was just a typo in our ordering system. Everything is as it should be :)
@Simon –– Sorry about that! You will be receiving your EO1 with EO1 Stand in May. We're updating the automated receipt now.
I bought my EO1 stand just now, and in my automated receipt it stated my EO1 would ship in September! When did this slip from May for non-Beta backers??
@Kave –– Sorry for the confusion! If you order EO1 stand by May 1st we'll ship it along with your EO1 (no additional shipping cost).
Hi, I have received an email asking if I want to get a stand for E01. But realised that the stand cost $40 and the cheapest shipping cost is $45! Since we already paid shipping cost for our EO1, why can the stand be send together so that we don't need to pay Additional shipping cost? Thanks.
@scott — Targeting wooden frame ship date around the same time as EO1 in May.
@Robert — Stand coming soon :)!
@Kingsley — You can still edit your address.
Ran across this on Product Hunt and I can't help but see A BUNCH of similarities to Electric Objects's product: http://meural.com/
I don't know if you should be flattered or take legal action :/
