Status Update February 21st, 2014


60 units were shipped this week. The shipping process continues. Expect us to slowly catch up on e-mails and messages sent. Currently the focus lies on getting units out of the door, the extreme amount of messages sent is a full-time job on its own. We prefer to deal with the units first.

It was brought to my attention some people question whether the units were shipped via first class or priority international here is a snapshot with all private information removed of the receipt.

Also more in-depth explanation of what LZ and other letters signify via website.

      I think a lot of people have just plain forgotten about this project - it's been so long, and with not much communication that I just wrote off the money as a bad investment. Which is a pity, as I'd have loved to have actually used this device.

      lol some of us are waiting now almost for 1.5 year if i knew this i would never spend my money on this.
      There are no excuses anymore for the delay.
      I asked about 10 times where my gcw was in a nice way.
      But now iam getting frustrated.

      Has anyone here received their unit in the UK?

      As I backed 9 days after the beginning of the project I hoped i would receive my unit before I move house :(. Can you tell me please what's going on with my unit ? Can you also send me a new formular to give my new shipping address ?

      Mini-Update: 80 Units were shipped and about 10 more this evening which will go out Monday.

      As long as there some progress I will wait. I hope more and more people will get their units soon enough.

      I was hoping to have it by the holidays, with 60 units shipped a week, it seems I won't :(((
      Non news as of today ....

    11. Daniel Mordant on February 22, 2014

      Justin, I think it would be wiser to FIRST quickly read your mails, as in some of them, mine for example, they state a NEW SHIPPING ADDRESS. Understand that lot of us had time to move in the meantime. I received any acknowledgement of my messages, which makes me feel quite concerned...

      I don't get what takes so long to send the remaining consoles. Can somebody please answer why only about 10 consoles a day get send allthough they are sitting on the consoles for several months now. Don't tell me the quality-testing is still in progress.

    13. KevinSensei on February 22, 2014

      Have any shipped to Japan yet? Or will be shipping soon?

    14. des on February 22, 2014

      Thanks for the update.

      I guess with the current speed it will be another 4-8 weeks until all units have been shipped. Maybe around May everyone will have their unit.

      60 units shipped in ONE WEEK? That's a slap in the face for all of us who believed in your original "estimate" of fulfilment in early February. Maybe better don't post any further updates. That way, I can at least hold on to the illusion that you are taking this seriously and that things are moving forward. But with these numbers I know for a fact that your backers have lowest priority.

    16. Justin McDonald on February 22, 2014

      Hi Justin, would it be ok to ask when the remainder of my order will be shipped? do you have them there or would the come from China again? 46 to go.. and 2 x KS style bonuses too...

    17. Alberto Lorente Rico on February 22, 2014

      12 per day...fmmm, not even reach the minimum you said (15*5=75). Far, too far of "40 units per day" (40*5=200), and far of the middle (27*5=135)...

      And, How many remain to send?

      Juho on February 21, 2014

      Thanks for the update, but could you give us at least a rough estimate how many units are left? It's good to hear they are moving, but it's pretty disappointing if there is still another couple of months before all of them are shipped.

      So 12 units a day.... That's a little better...

    20. Justin Barwick Creator on February 21, 2014

      The shipping number was taken from 2/17/2014 to 2/21/2014

      On Feb 14th you said, "Between 15 and 40 are going out a day ".

      If 60 have gone out in 1 week, that would only be 8.5 units going out a day. That's some bad math....
