Thank you for your overwhelming support that has allowed us to reach our $100,000 funding target in under 7 hours since launch. We have now raised over $200K in a single day.

Your strong support has given us the needed affirmation to place a larger raw materials order and start mass production later this month, earlier than scheduled.

We will announce $300K and $500K stretch goals in the next update.

      I definitely would prefer Thunderbolt 2 / Display port instead of the HDMI as it would allow me to use all my existing dongles (including mdp->HDMI)

      Also Thunderbolt 2 would be saver for all users with external display or existing thunderbolt Ethernet dongles (that clearly cannot fit to low profile)

      I for one fully agree with Hyper, as it ís a solid product as it is.
      Adding more ports will only slow down production time.
      Just for once let this be an actual good kickstarter project were nothing is rushed, everything gets to everyone in time and the product is solid;)

      Please add display port.

      @R.V. Jacobs.
      Given our delivery timeline of February 2017, we unfortunately are unable to make any more changes to the type of ports on the HyperDrive. The ports on the HyperDrive are chosen because they are arguably the most popular and often requested ports.
      An Ethernet port will not fit into the slim profile of the HyperDrive which is as thin as the MacBook Pro. We appreciate that while an ethernet port may be essential for some, the mass majority of users are very comfortable with wireless WiFi.

      Once again, thank you for your support!

      Great device. I backed in a very early stage. However. There is one thing I am missing in this device. Why is every thinkable port on it except a LAN-port. Sometimes it is just necesarry or very handy to be able to connect a LAN (ethernet) Cable. Please make it a 300k goal or something. Please add the LAN-port to the device. It would really make it complete.

      I totally agree with Matthias. Rarely seen on KS. In fact, I've been a backer of their last campaigns (Hyperlink, Pearl and iStick) and I got my rewards on time or slightly delayed.
      Keep up the good work, you guys are great :-)
      If only every other campaigners be like you…

      Earlier production? This would be like XMas in May. Rarely seen on Kickstarter.
