Update #8

Thanks.

Hello backers,

Well, as of yesterday, all pairs have shipped! (Except for a few lucky locals.)  Check in with us if your pair doesn't show by next week and we'll track it down.

We really can't overstate how happy and grateful we are that you chose to get on board with us. By backing us, you went above and beyond, and we strove to go above and beyond for you in delivering as beautiful, fun, and functional a product as possible.

We wouldn't be anywhere without our molder, Elfy. This guy molded the first iPods for Apple! And iPhones. Check him out at elfys.com if you want stellar work and unflinching design feedback.

Also be sure to check out the new Spectracles tumblr at spectracles.com and submit some pics donning your new specs! (We love giving out bonus pairs, hint hint...)

For more details on our process and the resources we used along the way, check out our Quora answer here: http://www.quora.com/Kickstarter/How-does-an-individual-create-a-physical-product

Remember: Spectracles alter your perception. Do NOT drive with diffraction lenses on (obviously!) or colored lenses. They can make traffic lights imperceptible.

As always, keep up with us at facebook.com/coolbeams, and keep your eye on the store at coolbeams.com -- there's more to come!

So long for now,

Tom and Will, founders@coolbeams.com
