MILLION DOLLAR STRETCH GOAL : Sonic Emotion Absolute 3D

30 days ago TrueSmart was the awesome Smartwatch with a fantastic deal (aka fantastic features for awesome price), acknowledged by the tremendous support with a rocket start on Day #1. Throughout the 30 days of Kickstarting, the TrueSmart has gotten stronger and beefier. Through several stretch goals, the TrueSmart is an even better product than it ever was, better product than any other competitor is. The core strengths has always been there, built-in from Day #1. Each stretch goals strengthens the TrueSmart in different areas, so TrueSmart becomes better, all rounded. The Clockface Mania that's still going on every $5K will ensure TrueSmart can be judged by its cover too, the awesome premium clockfaces will wow the tech friends and non tech friends.

We love stretch goals (is it addictive?), and everyone loves stretch goals too. That $1 million milestone looked out or reach previously. Now it looks so far and yet so close. It's possible but yet we might just miss it. We reached out to Omate's friends to see if they can chip in to support our cause. We got several responses - thank you friends! Sonic Emotion's stood out the most.

Thanks to Sonic Emotion, we are happy to announce as the Million Dollar Stretch Goal, Sonic Emotion's awesome technology - Absolute 3D, an exclusive patented high technology not available publicly.

What Absolute 3D does is turn all your audio, all your music into absolute surround experience. It's a 3D audio processing engine that will be put into TrueSmart, turning all your music absolutely 3D surround. Absolute 3D uses TrueSmart's dual core processor to do all the processing magic. From TrueSmart you could Absolute 3D your music into any Bluetooth speaker, any Bluetooth headset. You have to hear it to believe it. That's something no photo or video will do justice. So when we hit that one million dollar mark, you get to enjoy it yourself!! Hear it for yourself. Sonic Emotion will put their Absolute 3D technology into every Kickstarter's TrueSmart - their gift to Omate, their gift to every TrueSmart Kickstarter. Thanks Sonic Emotion!

Imagine sitting on your couch and enjoy that awesome surround music experience. One touch on the screen, Absolute 3D lets you bring that surround sound sweet spot to where you are. Change that sweet spot anywhere in realtime. The power of putting out 3D surround sound and controlling it all right on your wrist - that's the power combination of TrueSmart & Absolute 3D.  Everyone of you will be able to enjoy this and show this off!

Let's get stretching!! Get Omate TrueSmart into the million dollar club. Get Absolute 3D on your wrist. Be truly awesome Pioneers of technology.

Only hours left... Sep 20 is the close of our start-up phase with Kickstarter. Counting down to being launched into the world by everyone / Kickstarter... join in.

      If you hit the "manage my pledge" button, you can simply adjust the amount you pledge. No need to create a new pledge and delete the old

      @Omate I have the early bird pledge. Can I order more by just pledging more? Like if I want 10. I just pledge 179*10?

      @Omate:
      Thank you for your answer, I defintely will change my pledge amount ;-)
      Another question: Do I afterwards have to delete the older (obsolete) Amazon payment "voucher"?

      Perhaps you can link to a page of the add-ons ... somewhere with high visibility, top of the main page ;-) ;-). I'm looking and not finding it very easy to figure out where that information is.
      If just half of the people already backing the TrueSmart had something to spend an extra $20, you would hit this goal and then some.

      Thanks,

      @Rene Meier, for you Early Bird Special #1, you can pledge $179 x 2 ($358), and we'll reward you with two. If both go to the same one international address, you only need to add one $15 international shipping charge.

      Creator René Meier on September 19, 2013

      @Omate. I'm still not shure, for which price I can add a second watch to my early bird special #1 pledge. Is it $179 or $199? Can one also add more than one watch?

    15. Fb_profile_picture.small

      Creator Sander Zwiers on September 19, 2013

      we need $2500 every hour. it's possible

      @Nick Schafer, absolutely!! That's all you need to do now. At the end of the campaign, we'll send everyone a survey form and you can tick/check the $10 Commemorative Keychain there. Thanks for your support!!

    17. Fb_profile_picture.small

      Is it possible that I can get the keychain if I add $10 to my $189 pledge?

      Creator Omate on September 19, 2013

      @ryan, it's not correct to say there are tons of apps that does this. That's why you need to hear it to know what we are talking about. As for stretch goals, the other options we had were $20m stretch goal for pairing with Ubuntu Edge and $200m stretch goal to control the Death Star project *joking* hope you see the light humor. But seriously, TrueSmart has had plenty of stretch goals, and even a ultra-sensitve touchscreen thrown in for free (no stretch goal needed). We try to keep it still fun, and it's really nice that our friends chip in with their technology.

      @omate That would be great for everyone semi-transparent mode in flesky that overlays the screen like in full-transparent. Then you See the Text and the correct character position.
      "@ed tranosky, here's Fleksy in invisible mode. Fleksy has told us they can specially do semi-invisible (transparency) mode for us too! http://www.youtube.com/watch…";

      Creator ryan on September 19, 2013

      Wasn't this already planned? The update earlier today already demo'd it on the TrueSmart, so it seems like this was going to be there anyway, since this isn't an app we can buy. Also, it seems like this is an additional service running at startup; does it impact power consumption at all? Don't get me wrong, I completely stand behind Omate and the TrueSmart. This just doesn't seem like a a reward that appropriately matches the enormity of hitting $1 million, especially when there are tons of apps in the Play store that achieve this functionality, for free or paid, even if not as well as this particular add-on does. I am disappointed to not see some of the items backers have previously requested addressed with this milestone stretch goal.

      Sry 4 all caps, but I have to make the following statement come through loud and clear:

      IF ONLY HALF OF ALL BACKERS INCREASE THEIR PLEDGE WITH $20 TO DOUBLE THE MEMORY (FROM 512MB TO 1GB) WE WILL REACH THIS STRETCH GOAL!

      Thank you for listening ;-)

      @Sirius, it's not gonna be easy, but yet it can be reached. If it was totally not possible we wouldn't have done it. Help spread some news :-) Find any fresh news about Smartwatch and comment there, make posts in your favorite community or forum. Simply get more people to see it, there's always a few who would become backers - TrueSmart is a strong product.

      The only thing I wish the truesmart had is a right handed option as the camera is on the right so wearing on the right hand makes operation difficult
