Hi Kickstarter,

We’re excited that we will be receiving and sending out everyone’s Kittyos in the next few weeks. If you didn’t already complete the address gathering survey we sent via Kickstarter please do so now. If you haven’t seen it, please check your junk or spam folder and if you did not receive the survey, please email us your delivery information at info@kittyo.com.

Thanks,

May Update

Hi Kickstarter,

We’re happy to report that your Kittyos have arrived at the Shanghai port today. They will be loaded onto a container which will leave for the US on Monday, May 30th. Once the ship reaches the US in 3-4 weeks they will be sent to our fulfillment house. Your Kittyos will then be mailed out and you will receive a tracking number via email. Be on the lookout for a "Survey" email we will send via Kickstarter next week. This will be the tool we use to gather your current shipping address. Please fill this out as soon as possible so we can be sure to get your Kittyo to you. As always, we will keep you updated.

Cheers,
Team Kittyo

 

 

 

 

April Update

50 likes

Hi Kickstarter,

Just back from a visit to our factory in Suzhou. We’re definitely in the final stages here (see below for pics of our packaging assembly line) and are working to get all assembly and packing wrapped up so we can ship our container in the next few weeks. As our last update noted, we had hoped to be on the water before the end of April, but some last-minute refinements have pushed that date back just a little. We will post another Kickstarter update as soon as the shipment has left our factory. After the Kittyos are on their way, we will also send out an address-gathering survey via Kickstarter to make sure we have your current mailing address and contact information. Once the container reaches our fulfillment house in the US, your Kittyos will be mailed out and you will receive a tracking number via email.

Thanks again for your support—and your patience. We can't wait to get your Kittyos to you!

Cheers, 
 Team Kittyo

March Update

Hi Kickstarter,

Quick update - our manufacturer is populating the printed circuit boards this week. All of the plastic parts are manufactured and will be painted by the end of next week and all of the component parts (Wi-Fi modules, servo motors, lasers, cameras etc.) are either at our factory or will be shipped there next week.

This still puts us on track to complete the assembly process and ship the container from our factory in China to our fulfillment house in the U.S. by the end of April.

As always, we will keep you updated on our progress.

Cheers,

Team Kittyo

February Update

Hi Kickstarter,

Since our last update we have been busy testing units from our first build. We’ve found some minor issues, which were easily debugged. Beyond testing and debugging, the first 250 units have provided our manufacturer the opportunity to review and streamline their process.

We are now putting the finishing touches on the tail end of the process, which includes confirmation of the fit, finish and cosmetics, fabricating the packaging, printing the instructions, and arranging for logistics and shipping.

The plastic parts and printed circuit boards are currently being manufactured and the modules (camera, laser, motors, wifi chips etc.) are being delivered to our factory. 

This is the final push to the finish line! 

There are several parts coming together and our factory is currently giving us an estimate of 5-8 weeks until all of the units are fully assembled, packaged and shipped. 

We are working hard to expedite the process without compromising quality. As always, we will keep you updated on our progress.

Cheers,
Team Kittyo
