About this project

Risks and challenges

Risks and Challenges
First engineering samples have arrived for hardware and firmware testing. Very minor enclosure dimension modifications were required for pre-production units from these first prototypes. Sample pre-production run of first 100 PCB’s are all working fine and accounted for after 180 hour burn in testing.

We have produced 100 working prototypes. We will be lifecycle testing our prototypes in order to make sure that they can withstand daily use over time. For the past 10 months we have been organizing our manufacturing plan with tooling and part vendors for final assembly & testing.

At this point we need the additional funds to purchase the production tooling for the enclosures and the silicone earhook molds and testing fixtures. All firmware and electronics designs have been completed and are working great. We are working through agency certifications and have not been given any time lines that effect our anticipated delivery schedules. Part of the funds will go to making this all happen.

During the design and prototype development stages we have worked very closely with the manufacturing team that will produce ITreq units. Our manufacture will deliver units in the first 6 weeks after project funding. This puts us into September 2013 for early backers and production units.

We have lined up our US fulfillment distributor and are in the process of installing in-house data systems for management of the rewards deliveries per our commitment dates. All Kickstarter Backer units will be shipped before any product for potential distribution sales will be processed.
