Update 10

Hi Kickstarters,

The Luxi manufacturer had a couple logistical issues last week, which resulted in an interruption of the production run, but we’ve been assured the whole order will be complete by July 29.

We’ve made the executive decision to get all the Luxis sent here by air-freight as soon as they’re done, in an effort to make up for some lost time. So we’re really optimistic about getting them in the post to you starting the first week of August.

I’ve brought on a great new hire, Jarrod. He’s smart and he’s fast and he’s going to work all day and night to get your Luxi to you as soon as they drop. He’s been practicing post-office sprints and he can address an envelope in 3.2s. (Not that he needs to - they're already done...)

Just look at this eagerness:

In other news, we're drumming up some great PR for Luxi, so we’re as keen as beans to get them done, shipped, and fully-stocked.

Thanks for your support and patience!

      Not sure what all the BS is from folks. Its not that late, I've been a part of a few Kickstarts and I always have assumed within a 6 month window of stated release. People that think Kickstarter is a store are very misinformed.

      I only hope it will fit the next iPhone generation. I have the chance to change my iPhone once a year, I opt for Luxi for iPhone5, whatever the next iPhone will be, i simply hope the shape will fit anyway. I hate the idea of waiting for so long, missing all the things I wish I already had the Luxi for, and finally being not even able to use it at all.

      To be honest, I totally forgot I had even packed this project. I'll continue to think that so I don't get upset with how ridiculously long it's taken to even receive it.

      Great! I would rather wait for a product that is working and complete than a half-arsed rush job.

      Man, rough crowd. I've seen worse in terms of Fulfillment and communication, this is nothing if you want a quality item. If all you care about is getting a p.o.s. fast, why wast time scouring kickstarter, try Harbor Freight or fingerhut..

      This is ridiculous. I backed this in February. Summer is halfway over. Just send them out.

      Hey great! Good news!

      Excited to try it out :D

      haha.... if great PR is stringing along customers/backers and making unkept promises then you have defininatly drummed up a lot of it.

      I called it fulfillment because for all you Kickstarter folks the manufacturer is assembling your orders, packaging, and addressing them for fulfillment. So as soon as they're done they'll be 'fulfilled'.

      I assure you there is nothing fishy about Luxi. It's a great product and we think it's going to be very popular. You can call me on 415.894.0693 or even stop by the office in Palo Alto, CA and I'd be happy to set your mind at ease.

      If you have started "Fulfillment" like your post 21 days ago said why are they still in production? It seams as this post contradicts what you said in your last post on July 2nd, 2013. Not trying to be a stick in the mud but its starting so to sound fishy.
