Update #9

International Shipments, CES, and Support for Apple's iOS

1 comment

A quick round of updates to bring everyone up to speed!

First off, for our international backers expecting a delivery in January, all of your packages were shipped one week ago today, from our new warehouse facility in China. Setting up that facility proved to be more complicated than expected, but we made a timely delivery our priority and we expect most if not all of you to receive your package this coming week. Some, we are told, have already arrived.

Next, we had an amazing experience at CES in Las Vegas meeting several of you in person and presenting the Puzzlebox Orbit to members of the press and general public. Highlights included a visit and interview with CNN's doctor-in-residence Sanjay Gupta, broadcasting 15 live back-to-back demonstrations to Fox News affiliates across the country (starting at 4:30 AM, with a different city every 10 minutes!), and a special engagement hosted by the SyFy channel. We have attempted to collect all of the articles and videos we could find, and added them to our website:

CES Press Coverage of the Puzzlebox Orbit

And finally, while we are still anxiously awaiting Apple's approval of the iOS app we submitted last month, we have arrived at an interim solution for our backers and early adopters. An announcement was made in a private update sent just prior to this one. If you are an Apple user who purchased your Puzzlebox Orbit directly from us after the Kickstarter closed, please feel free to get in contact with us for details.

      I am curious if there has been any progress made with the Puzzlebox Pyramid? I don't recall ever seeing anything said about that aside from a response to a previous question - I think that answer was that it was still on hold - but no formal updates. Anything you can report on it at all? Has it even been started yet?
