$300K and $500K Stretch Goals Announced!
We know that many backers are asking for the addition of mini DisplayPort and ethernet port as stretch goals but honestly those are not realistic stretch goals given our short delivery timeframe.
Making significant changes to the product takes a lot of planning and not something that can be decided on a whim. So it is either we deliberately withhold planned product features at launch or we promise unplanned product features that would severely impact our already proposed delivery timeline.
We are doing neither.
We WANT to make the best product out there in the market. That is why we had already presented our BEST product version at the launch of this Kickstarter campaign. When we do make minor product improvements along the way, we will implement it immediately because we want to make the best product out there and not because we want to entice more backers to our project.
We also don't want to be one of those projects that will pander to any popular demand in the hope of luring potential backers sitting on the fence. It is not difficult to notice that projects that promise fantastic product feature stretch goals are also projects that fail to deliver or are perpetually in development.
That being said, we are still looking into mini DisplayPort and ethernet port options but just not within the scope of this project.
Wow long speech. Still there?
Without further ado *drumroll* our next 2 stretch goals will be a free velvet pouch for the HyperDrive (when we hit $300K in funding which is almost given at this point) and a free upgrade from velvet to a leather pouch with magnetic closure for the HyperDrive (when we hit $500K in funding).
Below are pictures of the pouches. Enjoy!
Opps the leather pouch is a little tight. Don't worry, we have already made plans to increase the size just by a little so that the magnetic closure will work.
So get out there and spread the word of this project to your friends, family, anyone you know who is using the 2016 MacBook Pro, via facebook, twitter, instagram, snapchat and any means possible.
Hit those goals and get those pouches!
