Hi everyone,

First of all, just a quick note to thank-you all for your patience. We massively appreciate everyone's patience and support while we've been working to get your ScanBox orders to you. 

It's been a huge journey, we've learned a lot, and we apologize that the shipping date was moved back originally, but we now finally have some good news. After much pushing, prodding and late night phone calls we've got a firm shipping date. 

October 12!

So, all going well you should receive your ScanBox order very shortly after. 

If we hit any unforeseen problems we'll obviously let you know, but it's exciting to have ScanBox in full production and be able to have the little things on hand like the unbranded batch shown below. 

Also we thought we'd just send out an update to let you know two bits of exciting news.

1) We've changed the name of our studio from LimeMouse to LIFX. 

We've learned so much from ScanBox and are just hugely grateful for all your feedback, ideas and inputs. It's taught us a lot about, particularly about logistics, manufacturing and shipping. We've also just been really overwhelmed by your support and want to take what we've learned and make more cool stuff for you. 

2) Which leads us to our second piece of news. And it's a big one. We'll be announcing a new project very soon, called, you guessed it LIFX. 

Without giving too much away, we're reinventing another type of product ;) It will go live shortly, and we'd love your feedback when it has! 

But before all that happens, a huge thank-you again, and we really look forward to having ScanBox in your hands and hearing about how you're using it once it arrives. If you don't receive yours shortly after October 12 please reach out directly and we'll post your order to you personally. 

We want to thank everyone again everyone look forward to keeping in touch. 

All the best,

      Joshua Stebbins, kickstarter is more than just funding a project. It also functions as pre-market research. Do you think 3 months ago you would have anticipated $185,000 in orders and risked your own capital, or worse borrowed money from a bank based on your best guess?

      Ship when right & ready is all I ask.

      I realize issues come up, but a three month delivery date push is a little extreme. What do you think interest for a 185,000k loan would be for three months?

      iPhone 5 is supported, right?

      I hope they work with the new iPhone 5!

      Good stuff guys.
      Look forward to it.
      Would also like an ETA on int'l delivery if possible?

      The pile of ready-to-scan documents is getting problematic...

      Do you know when international customers (in my case the UK) can expect to receive their Scanboxes? I was hoping to get mine for a big trip away at the end of October, and when I ordered I thought there would be plenty of time. Glad to hear that you have a firm date, anyway.

      LIFX sounds like a transportation corporation or a holding company for nursing homes.

      Me too, I prefer the name LimeMouse. LIFX is just a bit weird to say .. maybe it's different for Australians.

      Just one question: how do you pronounce "LIFX"....

    17. Beth Lamenskie on

      Will we get an email about your next product?

    18. Anonymous on

      Maybe your existing backers Gould get a heads up and given a chance to buy into your new product at a cheaper fast acting price.

    19. Howard Oakes on
