      Hi LH - I just checked with OTX, it appears that you may have changed your order to black on backerkit. The first batch only has all white, the black ones are in the second batch and will be shipped to you in 2 weeks. If this is an error, drop us a note at We may be able to change your order back and get you one shipped quicker.

      Is there a simple way to know if we're "super-early" or just "early" adopters? Thx.

      It's been a long time since a Kickstarter update has had me genuinely excited, but I'm not only excited I'm surprised it's likely to show in a few days! This project set a gold standard of communication that will likely never been seen again by Kickstarter. You guys have done great and I'm glad to be on board!

      I love you.

      - Very great communication. Highly detailed responses. Other then the last 3 weeks where communication died down, you guys were for the most part excellent. I appreciate that.
      - Not long of a delay. Just about 2-3 months. Not a lot compared to most Kickstarters that can take up to a year to get delivered and their product doesn't seem as complicated as yours.
      - Did I mention I love you guys? I love you guys for your hard work and effort and the lack of a major delay. You guys are the example Kickstarter project Kickstarters should be about. Just excellent all around. I am confident your product will deliver on your promises as described here and I wouldn't have to send it for return.
      - 1 year warranty. I don't know about other Kickstarters but that's great. Some Kickstarters just feel "Since this is Kickstarter, we won't offer warranty because this isn't like a store" etc.
