The hardware of the Opter Sleep is completely finalized, but its firmware and our app are constantly improving. As of our Kickstarter launch, all of the following features are currently implemented in at least basic form. We will continue to refine and perfect these features through to our ship date.
These are features coming to every Opter Sleep that we have not implemented yet.

Risks and challenges
The hardest part for Kickstarter hardware projects is often manufacturing. It's a difficult process, and many people on Kickstarter are doing it for the first time. This leads to many novice errors and unforeseen delays.
As a part of the Kickstarter community ourselves, we're no stranger to these delays. That's why we made sure to bring on experts with established, reliable, time-tested manufacturing networks. Our experts will do all the sourcing and manufacturing for us, so we can focus on making Opter Sleep as awesome as possible.
Of course, unforeseen circumstances can always happen, but rest assured that we will do everything in our power to minimize the risk.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
