Update #2

Home Stretch..

Comment

Backer and Potential Backers,

We appreciate all of your support and feedback. It's been a fun ride so far and we need all of your help to push us to the end as we come down the home stretch. We are working with a factory in Asia and as you can imagine it is somewhat of a laborious process. We were expecting to have our fully engineered prototypes in hand in the first week of May, but the timetable has changed slightly and May 17th is our target date. Tooling will begin shortly thereafter. Based on the timeframes laid out to us by the factory, we are expecting to have our samples sent off for certifications (UL, FCC, CE, MFI) by the end of June, and the machines will be ready for production by mid July. The certification process creates a bit of an unknown and we will go into full production as soon as that process is complete.

We have applied and have been accepted into Apple's MFI licensing program and our product plan has been approved. The vendor we are using in China is an MFI approved vendor and understands the ins and outs of UL and MFI, so the certification process should be relatively smooth.

Lastly, some of you might be wondering what an engineered prototype is. We initially developed non-engineered SLA models of our product. When utilizing injection molds, the parts have to be cut in a certain way and the circuitry has to be designed to be manufacturable. When you bring your designs to a factory, they make small modifications to the design to make it manufacturable and design the PCB so that it meets all the standards of safety and functionality and can be produced en masse. That is the process we are currently going through right now.

We thank you again for all of your support. We will be putting out more frequent updates as we get more information. Let's make one last push to get us over that $125k hump.

Best,

Jesse & Lloyd
