612 backers pledged $126,473 to help bring this project to life.

Delivery of Soundlazer Boards, Kits and full units.

I have been getting emails asking me when Soundlazers will start shipping so I wanted to let everyone know the timeline I am trying to stick to.

We have just finalized the manufactured version of the schematic and will begin final board and component layout over the next 2 weeks.  I should have a working production test unit by the end of June.  

Once the production test unit is approved, it should only take a week or two to build all the boards.  Once we have working boards, firmware needs to be loaded and each needs to be calibrated.  This will take a few weeks.  I expect to start shipping units to backers no earlier than the third week in July.  

In the meantime, the aluminum cases, audio cables, power adapters and all other components are on order and should be arriving soon.

I will be updating everyone as we progress.  Please check soundlazer.com from time to time for the schematics, drawings and other information as it becomes available.
