Risks and challenges

After several rounds of hardware and software prototyping, our "PLAYBULB string" has been stable and ready to release to markets. Our challenge here is to accurately estimate the required materials purchase for the first batch of mass production. KICKSTARTER is a perfect platform for us to test the market. We like to know how tech-lovers think about our new products. We need to hear your opinions so that we can keep enhancing our hardware and software. We also need your helps to spread out the message. With the fund we raise on KICKSTARTER, we will make materials purchase planning accordingly. Besides, we will use it as marketing fund to make PLAYBULB string a market success. We will make it as R&D budget to keep enhancing our hardware and software. In our product development roadmap of PLAYBULB family, more products are coming. We are making PLAYBULB X an ALL-IN-ONE mobile app to control the complete range of PLAYBULB products. This is extremely challenging as each product are different in function and features. Plus, we know delivering a good user experience is the key to win customer's attention. We always put this at high priority during product development.
