Developers Apprentice Tier Officially Fulfilled

Exciting news: last week, we shipped Auroras to ALL backers in the Developer’s Apprentice tier! Those backers are now receiving their Auroras, unboxing them and trying them for the very first time! 

Moving Forward

We’re doing a top-down fulfillment of all kickstarter orders by backing amount, moving down the list tier-by-tier. The only exceptions were Early Access applicants.

Unboxing 

It’s true that a picture is worth a thousand words. However, because of all the long delays, we thought we'd share some videos! Our wonderful backers have been sharing their unboxing experiences. Links below!

Performance Report

All Aurora apps are reported stable and in continued testing. 

New Aurora Desktop and Aurora Firmware versions were released recently, featuring streamlined visuals, new device features (like button-press-monitoring and other neat additions), and a greatly improved sleep staging algorithm. Aurora's algorithms are constantly evolving thanks to fresh data provided by our users. The new algorithm performs with ~ 90% accuracy in a full-cross-validation scheme. (This is just fancy machine learning talk for it works really well!) 

Aurora MobileiOS is now stable among users. Meanwhile Aurora Mobile: Android is nearly out of development and will be ready for user testing soon. Our main goal is to have both mobile apps on their respective app stores by the time of KS device fulfillment.

Testimonials

Meanwhile, existing users are keeping us busy with fresh sleep data and dream reports submitted daily. The results have been astonishing. Here are a few new reports from users wearing Aurora at home:

"I’ve used Aurora 7 times in the past two weeks and last night included a dream that felt more lucid than usual. A mentor was walking with me through a large atrium, not unlike the main concourse of Grand Central Station. Along the way, I was making eye contact with a number of individuals as they approached me from various angles.

To one person who came up alongside me on the left, I said, “Do you have someone like this in your life?,” referring to my mentor. He gently shook his head and quietly said no. Overall, I felt like I was in control of the interactions I was having along the way."

  • Ben, 28, California

“Actively creating the world around me from a wider perspective. Seemed to stabilize and prolong the entire lucid dream. VERY cool. I practiced some dream yoga... made a flower pop out of the ground.. it was like 5 feet tall. One of my most successful so far” 

  • Jim, 26, Canada

“I have been able to successfully induce lucid dreams multiple times using many different light settings on the Aurora. ” 

  • Terry, 46, UK
