March 6 Update
As announced in our prior update, production is underway to deliver all of the Jack units! They are expected to finish in batches of 6-10,000 every 4 weeks. If you need to update your shipping address, you may do so here: https://jack-by-podo-labs.backerkit.com/ If you have not answered the survey to provide us your shipping details to this point, your Jacks will be shipped after everyone else's.
Here is what 25,000 metal clips look like:
These will be welded and eletro-plated to be finished. The other components such as the plastics and PCBs are being completed at the other suppliers as well. The PCBs have been flashed with the latest firmware (which has been continuously worked on and upgraded during this time) and will be tested thoroughly this week. Assembly may begin as early as Friday.
Thank you everyone for your support, and especially to those who sent us encouraging messages to pull through. It has been a challenging 12 months but we all had a shared goal, and we're happy that it will be a happy ending.
Please look forward to more updates soon, and have a great Tuesday!
