Thanks everyone - we're funded!

We have been amazed at the support we've received over the last week, and can't wait to get to the end of the 60 days and start delivering Genies to some exceptionally creative people out there. There are heaps of other features that will be coming out over the coming weeks to keep your excitement up! 

Thank You!

      @Ryan Lucas, A match made in heaven indeed! Thanks for the heads up. I am now on board with both projects too! :)

      Congratulations, so happy this made it through. I had been checking back daily to see how far it had got, and after the first few days it was evident that it would succeed. Now, what to do during this 54 day wait!!!!! Oh yeah, look for a new camera that will fit this baby like a glove :D

      Congrats guys! Do you have any plans for additional rewards for us backers if (aka 'when') the pledges continue to increase above the goal? I dont have any suggestions at the moment but I have seen this practice used for other projects (and come on, who doesn't love free stuff.)

      Also, are there any thoughts to start shipping prior to the project ending? 54 Days is going to seem like an eternity otherwise.

      Lastly, I would like to point out that several backers for the REVOLVE Camera Dolly have mentioned pledging for the Genie as well (including myself.) It seems like a match made in heaven to me. I just wanted to throw that out there to anyone who is unaware of its existance.

      @Chris T. I looks like the Genie folks are using "GlideTrack" as well as Kessler Crane rail systems. I own one of the GlideTracks and have to say the price is the most affordable I've seen and the results great. I can't wait to adapt the Genie to it, or the upcoming "Revolve" which is another Kickstarter project. I am so excited by the Genie, can't wait to use it. :-) I hope some future project you can add a second axis of rotation. Best wishes Chris, Ben and any other team members. :-)

      I'm very pleased for you (as well as pleased with myself for backing :-)) Clever innovation rewarded! Hopefully this is just the start of even bigger things. My DIY skills are a bit dodgy so hopefully you'll design a nice, portable and affordable track for the Genie before too long.

      Awesome! I am a little irritated that we have to wait 54 more days to get this project going... since you clearly have a great base of support PLLEEEAAASSSEEEE sort out some of the external triggers you refer to in the project write-up and have them ready for us to add to our pledge!!!
