Well that happened! (100k Goal in less than 12 Hours!)
We don't even know what to say, except THANK YOU!
So many amazing things happened today, and at 8:26pm PT, exactly 11 hours and 26 minutes into the SwitchPod campaign, Karl K. purchased a 5-pack of SwitchPods to put us over the top of our funding goal of $100,000.
Your amazing support allows us to actually begin discussions NOW with our manufacturing team (instead of 59 days from now) about how to best get this into your hands as fast as possible, while ensuring that the quality is great and you will be happy with your pledge.
We're discussing an in-person trip to the manufacturing location to actually see some of the first SwitchPods off the line to make sure they are up to our standards and work the way we want them to.
We're talking about packaging, and ways we can make the experience of opening and using your SwitchPod for the first time even better.
We've had these discussions before, but they were always with the "yeah, but we have to get funded first" in the back of our minds. But that's gone now. This product will be built, and it's going to be awesome.
Thank you again for the support. We're excited to finally - after 15 months - really bring this thing to life. You made our day, and we're hoping you're just as stoked about your SwitchPod as we are about making it for you.
Special shout out to some amazing people who went over-the-top to share and spread the word about SwitchPod today:
Peter McKinnon, Levi Allen, Dave Altizer, all of the news articles and blogs that have already published about the SwitchPod, and everyone who has shared this thing on social media. It all matters! And I'm sure there will be more support as time goes on and way too many people to thank - but we're going to do our best.
Here's to you, Kickstarter Backers. Thank you,
Pat & Caleb and the SwitchPod Team
