2000 Z Mice have left the factory!

Posted by Grant Odgers - Swiftpoint (Creator)

Hi Kickstarters !

Some great news,  as planned, 2000 Z’s are now winging their way to our fulfilment centre in the US where they’ll be picked, packed and delivered to our North American region backers. Watch your mailboxes over the next couple of weeks!  

For our backers in the rest of the world, we’re on schedule to pick up your Z’s at the end of next week, deliver them to our fulfilment centre in Hong Kong, and then air-mailed to you, arriving in a similar time frame to the US region.


For arrival dates check out the last update - these estimates are still on track.

Hopefully you've seen our invitation to upgrade your reward. We’re thrilled that over 1/3 of these have already been taken up in less than 24 hours,  leaving a limited number of our one off Launch Edition mice available at a huge discount (until 7th May).

We’ll soon be into retail production, with the Z available to the public in late May /  June, initially through on-line channels (including and an increasing number of physical retail channels around the world.

We couldn’t have got this far without your support, and we invite and encourage you to provide feedback on The Z, and the powerful driver software which we'll open up access to when we start shipping direct to backers. 

Will be in touch again next week with an update on shipping.

We’re really excited, and hope you are too.

Grant and the Team.

      Are the shipped mice actually being prioritised in the order which people backed? Or does it not really make much difference?

      Great if everything is STILL on track then they should start shipping here in the United States this coming Monday May the 15th :) !!!!!!

      I'm #1714, so I'm guessing that's a good number when you subtract the number of (no idea) US orders? (I'm in the UK.) Hoping I'll get it soon! :) My Logitech mouse is on its last wires. It'll feel good to finally pull the plug on the poor thing.

      Do the 2000 units shipping out of the US cover all North American backers?

      @Grant Odgers Although, I am in Australia this is great news! Hi Grant. Any updates on the software for the mouse? Where we download it etc? Will the software be compatible with all programs or is it limited to certain applications? Cheers Kris

      Uh-oh. 2,000 units coming to the US. I'm backer #2,135. Fingers crossed!

      Great I can't wait...this is perfect timing since Mad Catz just went bankrupt last month and now I will never see their Rat Pro X+ Gaming mouse come out unless some other company buys the line and patents ... hint hint and maybe also acquire their Strike 7 Gaming Keyboard tech and patents hint hint and make a SwiftPoint most advanced gaming keyboard ever looking at you Grant now is the time to sieze the day and branch out and DO IT!

      @Grant Odgers so the last update said that the mice will be arriving in Georgia and shipping out to backers on May 15th. Does that mean that you will be releasing the software on that day?
      ....or sooner?
