Have a question?
Just started my nights at work so won't be home for a few days, I will send you the photos when I get back though :) Cheers!
Hey Patrick, looks like you've got the same issue as Jules below. Sorry about that man! Shoot me a photo at email@example.com and we'll take care of you : )
Hey, mine just arrived but one of the frames was hanging off when I got it I managed to put it back on with the xog in the bag but it just keeps falling off and its misaligned anyways, what should I do? Its an awesome product just real disappointed mines faulty :( Patrick
Hey Jules, sorry about that! Probably an assembly error. Can you shoot a photo to firstname.lastname@example.org so we can figure out the best course of action?
Mine arrived as well but the right glass keeps falling off, it seems it was not glued to the red gear. .. Return or DIY fix?
Don't know if anyone noticed this but Spectracles spotting in the post-EDC Q-Dance movie: http://youtu.be/ty_3egPmXZE…
Just got mine, very cool. Thanks!
hey, just got my beams! Thanks for making and awesome product!
Hi David-- It's gonna be close. We just hired some folks to help us assembly so we can pick up the pace (assembling proved to be quite a bit more arduous than we anticipated) -- hopefully we can get 'em to you in time!
Do you have an eta for when these should arrive? Hoping I'll have them before Warped Tour on Jun 24th.
Nunnemonster -- I'll shoot you a message
Should have asked first time: if I was OK skipping the diffraction pair, could you replace those with something else you have ready-to-go and expedite ship so I could have them for the weekend? Big electro bash going down in Chi-town this weekend - of course I'd be happy to cover the shipping costs. Let me know! Thanks!
Hey guys - so for those of us that ordered one diffraction pair with others, you are waiting to ship them together? Thanks!
Dopplefail -- Don't have an exact ETA right now, going as fast as we can.
Got your update on sending them out last weekend, and was just wondering how the diffraction update is going and if there's any ETA for people who ordered those. Thanks!
The survey will go out shortly after funding ends (a few days from now).
When do the survey's come out so we can choose a style?
We're moving as fast as possible to have them out in early June. The molding process is somewhat unpredictable though: we'll get first samples and then decide whether to approve them or not. If there are flaws we can't tolerate, we may have to add a few weeks to the timeline to ensure the product is top-notch.
Short answer: hopefully.
I live in South Carolina and I'm going to Bonnaroo on June 6th. Do y'all think that they will come in before the music festival? I think they would be a big hit/ great conversation starter with the crowd there.
These are awesome!
Thanks Matthew, stoked to mail you out a pair!
Ian -- Thanks for the feedback! We've designed flex hinges into the frames to accommodate a variety of head sizes, so you should be all right.
At the moment, we're only offering yellow, turquoise, and brown frames, which you can match with any lens for the custom option. We explored a variety of frame colors during prototyping and settled on these as the best three options. (But if you've got a particular preference you can always let us know, and we'll consider working it into the lineup down the road!)
Congrats Tom & Will! Put you over the hump with my pledge, looking forward to getting my hands on them! Let's see where you end up in another 24 days! Cheers!
These are really cool looking; I plan on using mine for sunglasses. I also have a rather large head and am really hoping they fit. I noticed a few frame colors in photos and your video. Will other colors be available for the custom option?
Cheers for the quick reply, sounds awesome really lookig forward to em! Even if there is a delay im still excited to bring them to every gig and rave possible! Ill listen out for any updates, keep up the great work. Haha talk about good publicity :P anyone would be a fool yo turn em down
Cant believe theyve not been thought of before really. All the best!
Thanks Patrick! We definitely wanna have em out to you by then. We can't promise 100% (for example, if the injection mold comes back with unforeseen issues and we need to recut) but we're aiming to mail them out by late May / June. Maybe we'll mail you an extra pair so you can toss it up to deadmau5 on stage... Thanks for the feedback and support!
49 backers and no comments huh? Mad excited about this project, the double diffracted lenses specifically. You reckon I'd get them in time for 6th July? I live in London wanna take em to a festival watch deadmau5 through some spectracles. Seriously though, genius design and I can see these blowing up. My friends are gonna be jealous. I've got no doubts you're gonna hit that target. Good luck with everything!
