The first speakers have left the warehouse! 

Yesterday the first 8 orders left the warehouse and we are expecting a backer in Calabasas city in Los Angeles County to be the first to receive the Speaker already today (Friday)! Over a hundred more Speakers will leave the warehouse today, delivery times will vary depending on distance. East coast will take longer than west coast etc. 

Once the order is shipped you will get an confirmation email (to the address you entered in the survey) with the subject line: "Your People Products order has shipped (backer nr)". In the email there should be a tracking number so you can follow the speakers journey all the way to your door!

We would really love to get your unboxing pictures on the email or via instagram / twitter by using hashtag #transparentspeaker. All instragram picture will be visible on You can also tagg People People in facebook pictures after liking us on Facebook. Also feel free to share your experience in the comment field here on kickstarter. 

This is Per unboxing his first production model, happy times!

Canada, Japan and Colombia backers 

The LA warehouse does not allow us to ship abroad until we have an EIN (Employer Identification Number) number in the US. This application is in process but might take another week. 

Australia and New Zealand backers

These speakers will be shipped from the UK warehouse. We did not know the exact nationalities before sending out the survey. We are now really happy to know we have 13 Australian backers. I studied in Adelaide in South Australian for 1.5 years, great place! 

Some budget surprises has also occurred, the shipping estimate for our Australian friends alone ended up being a massive 1755 USD! Crikey! 

Other countries 

We are still expecting the sea freight shipmen to arrive to Europe the 18th of June. 

Lagging survey replies 

We are still waiting for over 20 backer addresses to come in via the surveys. If you can’t find the survey, here is one way we know works: Search for the email from Kickstarter with the subject: Response Needed! 

In that email click on the "click here to respond" button and you should be able to enter your address. You can only do this once. 

Have a great weekend!

      I live in the US and still haven't recieved mine yet.

    2. Creator Charles Adler on June 11, 2014

      I just received word that mine is sitting comfortably in a box at my house anxiously awaiting my return to open, setup, and play the first track. Will report back and share some unboxing photos.

      Congrats to everyone at People People for making it to this point. I know it was a difficult and long adventure. One with many ups and downs. Hopefully you've gotten to the point of "it's all up from here". Congrats guys!

      Received mine today - see general comments for overall impression. I just saw the comment below about announcing what the first track we play on the speaker and thought I would respond to that:

      Underground - Tom Waits, from swordfishtrombones

      Enjoyed it very much.

      Kee: EU

    5. Creator Kee Hui on June 6, 2014

      I am from Malaysia? How are you shipping to me? From EU or from China?

    6. Creator Richard Thomas on June 6, 2014

      Please ensure you do not use UPS for shipping to Canada. UPS will hit us with the appropriate taxes but also lump on a huge "UPS brokering fee" for the luxury of using UPS. FedEx Ground is my preferred shipper or USPS. Thanks!

    7. Creator PEOPLE PEOPLE on June 6, 2014

      Btw. We would love to know what track you will play first on your transparent speaker? Mine was: The Fairfield Four - These Bones

    8. Creator PEOPLE PEOPLE on June 6, 2014

      Fixed, thanks!

      Martin. I am hoping you mean 18 June in the UK. ;-)
