Hi backers,

Hope you had a lovely break and you've made some adventurous new years resolutions!

Quick update from us - after a short Christmas break we're back beavering away trying to get things finished on the software side. The iOS app is pretty much finished and we're planning to submit to the app store early next week. The Android app has a few little bugs wriggling around, so we'll need next week to chase all of those out. On the firmware we've got a few bits and pieces to finish, mostly some final optimising of the compass calibration code so that it's not confused by any magnetic handlebars. We're planning to start shipping the week after next - if we have any holds-ups, we'll let you know! The devices are sitting cosily in the warehouse ready to go. 

While this is all going on in London, Tom and Chet are drumming up some business at the CES in Las Vegas - go and say hello if you happen to be there too!

It's the biggest consumer electronics conference on the globe, a must-attend for any budding gadget maker, and the perfect place to make some future business connections. As soon as we've shipped to you, our backers, we'll need to make sure we can get the the sales moving so this stuff is super important to keep us paying the bills!

Nearly there, back to you shortly!

Mark

      Great news, thank you for the update! CES is always logistically challenging, but also a "must attend" for new consumer electronics projects. My experience suggests your presence will be very beneficial to your business in 2017. Excellent decision to participate.
