@Eli Thanks Eli!
@Taro, thanks for updating us on the progress. Although not good news, it means a lot to me :)
@Mike Shaw Thanks Mike, we're collecting more pictures and videos, we 'll make you all keep updated soon.
@Taro thank you for the update and I understand that you want to make sure things are working the way the should. I want a product that works so just keep me updated and some more pictures videos of what is going on.
Don't mean to be a smart ass....but I told you so.....I made this prediction on 4/27..."Oh and by the way...My prediction is we will not get another "Update" for at least 60 days (because they did their job now) and I will put money on it we will not get our product in July..IMHO...Prove me wrong TARO"
@Edmond Ng @andreas neubauer @Ellie Tang @Eli
Dear backers, last time we mentioned an unexpected chip related problem, then we urgently invited 5 SOC experts to help us find solutions. After days of hard work, we had located the problem and got some substantial progress now. But to solve this problem, we need to retest chips and redevelop new algorithms, so this might bring our schedule late at least for 8 weeks.
So the estimated delivery would be postponed to July, thanks for your understanding.
May I what is going on now? Would appreciate if you could updates us on the challenges you’re facing and how you’re handling them.
Any update? It's been a long time.....
There is no new delivery date ?
When will we receive?
@ralf , Yeah man I hear ya . It sucks when communication is lacking I've been burned by failed kickstarters before, I don't think this one will screw us over.
@Taro thank you for the update and I personally look foreword to the finished product and to give my daughter one for her birthday in July.
Thank you guys, we really appreciate your understanding.
as is shown in the update, now the sample works smoothly and our software team achieved cool advances. In the meantime, more demonstrations for the Taro is coming, we'll keep you updated.
Please permit us to invest more time to solve the hardware problem, you'll find it worthwhile to wait for Taro.
@Freddy: Thanks for that information. And: not the delay is my problem but the way they do (not / to less / to unspecific) communicate. The WIRAL campaign has the same delay, but communicated in january and their updates are really interesting.
They are working on it ... I know it sucks that they didn't deliver on time but they are working on it .
Will pull out forever from Kickstarter.
They had misused on Public's trust.
With few years of support, I get 1 scammed and 2 delayed projects.
Any other website that give better assurance for so call "investors" ?
Oh and by the way...My prediction is we will not get another "Update" for at least 60 days (because they did their job now) and I will put money on it we will not get our product in July..IMHO...Prove me wrong TARO
Yet another Kickstarter project I got screwed on... The projects on KS used to be very reliable this site has become nothing but scams....Please do not respond with "It takes a while to get things right" Or any other BS spin that you can think of...."Refunds" do not happen on KS well they do if you want to only get pennies on your dollar.... I have done some of my own research and the fact that Projects never run on time means the technology used on them is so outdated when your product comes it is not worth the stupid 20% off retail...There is nothing I can do but wait until TARO TECH decides they want to send me my product...SHAME on you TARO....You got me by the balls....I hope you get a big laugh out of it.....
Our new update
Dear backers, the new update has arrived, sorry for the late update. We're so grateful for your support all the time. After you read the new update, you'll find it worthwhile to wait for Taro.
Is it possible if I request to cancel my pledge now and get a refund ?
What do you think: Do I have to worry about this campaign /the money I spent? I just looked in the timeline: The last substantial information was in mid-January.
BTW: Does any of you actually have the address of the company? According to campaign information, they are located in Los Angeles. Is that correct?
Can we get an update!?!?!
It’s more than a month since your last update.
Please give us your new update
I am in agreement with @Jivan please give backers an update with "Real" information not like you have in below message it does not give backers any valid information. BTW I was understanding that you already had the "Manufacture" for Taro why are you now saying "most of the manufacturers are selected now." Please explain thank you.
Hi Taro Tech,
i Understand that you guys are still getting things sorted. I, and I assume many of us would appreciate it if you could post updates at least fortnightly (at minimum) so that many of us are lept in the loop and know when to expect delivery?
Thanks in advance.
@M Arie Nugraha For now we're hitting the last mile before the production. The production process would be finished in short time, and most of the manufacturers are selected now. We'll keep you informed, thanks again!
You mean that the production has not started yet ?
How long the production process will be taken ?
How long the delay will be ? 2 months ?
@lexander Koch Thanks for your message, we're conquering the last problem since a chip causes more power consumption. Once it's done, we'll soon move into the production and deliever your product. Once it's done, we'll keep you updated as soon as possible. Thanks for your understanding!
@andreas neubauer The payload capacity for Taro T1 is 0.57 lb. (259g). For iPhone 8 Plus, adding with extra lense, it could be workable. As we made a video for iPhone 8 Plus, with loading weight up to 300g, Taro works well. (Video link: https://www.youtube.com/watch…) However, we should note it's best and safe to work within the loading weight.
Hello Taro Team, is like to add a GoPro adaptor. How can I add this without paying 2 x for delivery. Thanks Steven
Hi there, i am looking forward to receive the taro stabilizer! When could i expect my delivery? I have orded the super early bird edition.
Hoping for you reply.
Hi , i have the iphone 8 plus and want to add extra lenses , do i need a counterweight ?
@Taro Thank you very much! 😃
@Roberto Hi, the max loading weight for Taro TX would 1800g（3.96 lb.). It would be okay for most of the cameras.
@Mike Shaw Thanks for the message from a sweet farther. We're trying best to make it happen, once we move into production, we'll let you know.
Hi guys, I got a question, what's the max weight amount for the mirror less cameras???
Just wanted you to know I purchased a second Taro for my daughter and her birthday this summer. I included my info when I bought it from you site. I gave my backer number so you would know that I have 2 Taro’s coming. Do you think I’ll get mine by June or sooner ?
@dane Sure, we offer counter balance for different phones. Your gears are supported with Taro.
@M Arie Nugraha @Vicky Chung @Arie van der Lee
Thanks for your message, we're conquering the last problem since a chip causes more power consumption. Once it's done, we'll soon move into the production and deliever your product.
You can review product in this video, it performs well now. https://youtu.be/y03upZGqo4o
Once it's done, we'll keep you updated as soon as possible. Thanks for your understanding!
Will you guys offer counter balances for different phone set-ups? I want to use my Taro with an iPhone X and Moment case and lenses. Moment has a counter balance weight for the various stabilizers and phone set-ups.
Can you give us an update on the estimated delivery?
The kickstarter project says 'april 2018', your websites say 'may 2018'.
In your last update you mentioned the technical difficulties so I can imaging that this will delay the 'april 2018' deadline. But will the new estimation be may? Of later?
When will I get the product?
Any update ?
@Jurgen Tabaku Yes, we'll make an update to let you guys know.
Is there an update to the estimated shipping date? Thank you!
@Nick Martin Thanks for your notice, your information is correct. We would put your two orders together for the delivery.
@Creator - I purchased the extra Band via your website - Did I add the correct information to link it to my pledge? Many Thanks!
Your last update is on January.
Your new update please
