January Update, CES 2015, Flint and MORE!
Happy New Year, Matchstick Fans!
We've been rocking it at the International CES in Las Vegas! We were the Pepcom Digital Experience Event on Monday and our booth is located in Eureka Park at the Sands, Tech West space 75205. Are you around? Come by!
We have spoken to a number of backers and potential business partners but we are also meeting with Hardware Partners like Rockchip and others to get you the highest quality product we can... on time. We are also meeting with future Content Partners to bring you well...more content! But, most importantly, we also announced something completely new... FLINT.
Flint is the first open software and open hardware video-streaming platform created with Mozilla’s Firefox OS inside. Flint aims to deliver highly interactive streaming and screen-to-screen experiences including two way interactivity, ad hoc and remote functionality. It's the system that will run Matchstick... and two hardware partners have signed on to also implement Flint!
AOC and TCL, leaders in flat screen technology, will be among the first to embrace and implement Flint technology in products such as HDTV’s, monitors, set top boxes, and more in 2015. We are committed to distributing 1 Million devices in 2015. The manufacturers will have access to capabilities and tools that will allow them to create compelling and user-friendly screen-to-screen experiences using any Firefox OS, Android, or iOS handset, tablet, or computer. It's the Matchstick experience, built into products by AOC and TCL! Stay tuned for more partnership announcements soon.
Here's some great press on Flint.
We Have a New Look!
We know you are too kind to mention it but... We had some work done over the Holidays! We launched a new website - Check it out, let us know what ya think!
But it's not finished yet... We'll open up our Matchstick Store where you can pre-order Matchstick before it hits retail. We are also working on our Developer Community so all of our developers out there can share their ideas and knowledge! These features should be rolling out in the coming weeks.
As always, follow us on the tweets and F'Books, or hit us up via message on Kickstarter for any questions. We will be sending out shipping surveys in a few weeks, so please don't email us your address at this time. Soon enough, we'll be reaching out to update addresses for shipping.
