Manufacturer #2 In the House - Two is Better than One

1 like

Hi Backers,

We did a final count and there are approximately 300 backers who have not received their rewards. Your reward will be ready in 2-3 weeks, I hope sooner.

We have a second manufacturer, BOTH are cranking out parts for RADIUS. So please take it easy and see that we are doing all that we can. With the very limited resources we have as a 1-2 person team, and literally no additional help whatsoever. When you receive the package, it's my handwriting and it was yours truly who walked them over to post office, fold the boxes, search for the manufacturers, order the materials etc.

The 300 or so envelopes are right outside my home office so I pass them everyday I go home from visiting the manufacturers, as the creator of RADIUS and founder of this new start-up with so much potential, it PAINS ME to not finish my delivery to my backers, believe me.

As you see, we are committed to delivering the 300 or so units and it took those two manufacturers time to get started. The initial meeting always promised us 2-3 weeks lead-time/delivery, but with the back and forth, sample approval, and other usual necessary time to review and go through the process, add another few weeks.

BUT they are now in FULL SWING, BOTH MANUFACTURERS.

Below are pics from the second manufacturer, excellent quality. Corners:

X frames:

One more process and these modules A & B are ready to be de-burred and polished.

Two manufacturers, both in full swing making parts. As I mentioned above, conservative estimate is 2-3 weeks, I hope to deliver sooner, in 1-2 weeks.

Thank you backers, please leave the stress to me, enjoy your day and your reward WILL be delivered.

Best,

H

      I've done the same as TJ and got more or less the same answer. Let's hope they take some notice and actually do something, for a change.

      Do you guys still hold any hope we will ever receive anything?

      I contacted Kickstarter and got the response below, maybe if the are inundated with pissed off customers something can be done

      Kickstarter Support, Sep 27 13:25 (EDT):
      Hi TJ,

      Thanks for reaching out and sorry to hear about this.

      When projects launch on Kickstarter they’re often in the early stages of development. Before the backer rewards can be fulfilled, the project itself must first be completed. It’s not uncommon for things to take longer than planned, but creators are expected to keep backers in the loop along the way.

      That said, I took a look and see that it has been a short while since the creator posted an update. We reached out to them and asked them to post an update and reply to their backers' messages. While we certainly encourage creators like this to stay in touch, we have no way of forcing them to do so.

      I've also passed this project along to our moderation team for review. We've made a note and the status of this project would be taken into consideration should the project creator submit another project.

      Thanks for being a thoughtful backer and member of the Kickstarter community. We hope your issue is resolved soon.

      Best,
      Michael

      先週末に日本では新しいiPhone5sが発売されました。ですが、私の商品はまだ届いていません。まさかiPhone6が発売されてもまだ届かないということはないですよね?

      Just for my clarification, last update was sent on sept 4th. 3 weeks (max) would mean I should have my case before end of September. Please confirm my math is correct.

      JOKE, I'm tire of checking the mail, and I'm tired of checking back on this site. Next update will be in three weeks stating, "we have a new manufacturer and they are working hard, there are 200 some backers that I will personally be sending out cases within the next few weeks"

      Hi, could you please check that I'm on the "not delivered yet" list please? Also, do you know if the case will work with the 5S? Same overall dimensions but dual LED is different to the 5. Thanks

    28. Upsilon7 on

      Okay, you guys are my officially most delayed kickstarter project leaders...
      But your frequent updates helps me prevent to turn to angry hulk :)
      Well, my last wish is using radious case with my ip5, before 5s launch.

    29. Chnuebli on

      iPhone 5S is coming out soon and I didn't get my case yet. Is there ANY chance you will deliver them to Switzerland (for U.S. people: Switzerland is NOT Sweden) any soon?

      This is the response I finally received regarding my many refund requests... In case people were hoping for refunds, I wouldn't hold you're breath.

      "we now have two manufacturers in full swing, they are making parts as seen on the photos and can't offer any refund. Your reward will be delivered, thank you and I am very sorry for the delay.
