It's that time of the month again! Lots of great news coming at you today so let’s dig in.
Last month we announced mass production had begun for all remaining Kickstarter devices. This month we are excited to update you on that progress. This is our largest order yet, representing the final sprint of the final lap of our collective journey. Our team is now counting down the days until releasing this incredible product to all of our backers.
Last month we were awaiting the arrival of Aurora’s electronic parts. Today, all of the necessary parts have arrived at our factories and electronics assembly has officially begun! The next steps will be full electronics module assembly, installing device software and finally, packaging and shipping!
Our current lead time estimates are 60 days to receive all finished Kickstarter devices and begin shipping. Pre-order customers, don’t fret! Your orders will be fulfilled immediately after the Kickstarter devices. We are working with various shipping and fulfillment services now to ensure that we will be ready to ship the thousands of Auroras ASAP. Meanwhile, our team remains committed to hand-assembling any remaining stock left in our local facility - we are scheduled to ship another 100 EA units this month.
Aurora App Updates
We are excited to expand progress on all fronts for Aurora’s apps this month. Aurora mobile (iOS) is in its final days before launch to EA testers, and Aurora Desktop will be releasing its 2.0 version!
Our mobile developers are working hard on the final version which will be submitted to the App Store for approval after distributed testing. This app release will be fully functional, supporting all essential basic wireless app/device features:
- Adjusting device settings
- Reviewing and managing sleep
- Wireless Firmware updates
Aurora Mobile for iOS will power the Aurora Kickstarter devices shipping soon and our Android App is trailing closely behind. We are pleased to welcome our 2nd Android developer to the team this month!
This month we celebrate the release of Aurora Desktop 2.0. Our powerful Desktop App is the glue behind the Aurora platform, providing our power users with deep control over the full spectrum of Aurora capabilities: controlling and designing dream stim settings, enabling at-home sleep experiments and empowering users to log their sleep and dreams into our growing open AI database. Each EA user already has complete access to their raw Aurora data for further analysis! This major release will be distributed immediately to our EA testers very soon, and will be made available for free to all Kickstarter and Pre-order backers.
