It's the most wonderful time of the year!
Regardless of where you live, or what you celebrate, we want to wish you a great Holiday season. We can't believe 2018 is nearly over, and we absolutely can't wait for what 2019 will bring!
Unfortunately, we have to tell all of you that SwiftPaws will not be shipping before the end of the year. We did everything we could, but it's just not going to come together in time.
However, this has been a week of great news.
We (finally) received word this week that the tool changes for our plastics have been completed and that we will be receiving new samples soon. Once we approve the samples, it takes only 3 short weeks to make all of our production plastics!
We've also had some awesome news on the circuit boards and motors. After LOTS of testing we just weren't happy with the overall performance. As much as we were hoping to ship SwiftPaws before the end of the year, we could not allow ourselves to make something that we wouldn't be happy to use for our own pups. Luckily, the team helping develop this didn't give up, and just yesterday we were able to test out a completely new iteration of the boards/motor/software and all we can say is, "Wow!" SwiftPaws finally looks, feels, and RUNS like we always dreamed it would.
We're really excited to share the video below with all of you. In it you can see our production plastics (first samples) and all of our production parts including the new boards etc. in action!
Everything is coming together
This means that we will be in full-blown production towards the end of Dec/early January. We know the wait has been SO HARD and that all of your pups wish they already had SwiftPaws to play with, but we can't thank you all enough for hanging in there with us.
We promise to keep the updates coming
As we get closer and closer to shipment we promise to keep you all updated. If you're shipping address has changed, now is a good time to send us your new information.
