It's a Great Day

Posted by Richard Harmon (Creator)

Hello Kickstarters!


The legs have arrived and the completed kits are being packed up and shipping labels applied.  Today’s production will ship today! 

Everybody here at Tellurex is extremely excited about this project and we all want to thank our Kickstarter backers for being so patient with us.  There have been several delays in this project but the day has finally come! 

I have included a picture of the first box that was taped shut.  Well, I gotta go, I am heading back out to the production line to lend a hand (don’t worry, the Quality Manager has trained me on the assembly line and signed the training logs).

Thank you all so much for making this project possible.


Richard Harmon

And also a hearty Thank you from the entire team here at Tellurex.

      Happy Holidays. I just got it, perfect timing for the holidays. It is very impressive. It gives adequate light in a dark room to read a book etc. It lights up perfectly the entire work surface properly.

      This is my first kick starter product I received, so I am very much happy to finally receive a impressive product from Kickstarter project. Keep up the good work and hoping for more in future.

      Just received mine today. It looks quite amazing. I'm waiting until after dinner to sit out on the deck and give the light a whirl. Woo hoo!

      BTW: Since the USB adapter won't support charging of an iPhone, do you have a few examples of smaller consumer devices that could be powered using this adapter? Or is this really just for tinkerers? If it's the latter, I'll have to get my soldering iron out and start playing around.

      Anyway, wonderful job! Congratulations! Now I can't wait to buy a battery pack. :)

      You can't imagine how relieved I was to make that announcement!

      Not sure if that was your box or not, chances are it wasn't. But who knows?

      Thanks to all of you
