Have a question?
Hey, any updates so far? It was expected for OMI to be ready to ship out from your warehouse in April after the Pilot Production ends but theres no updates after the prototype update on Feb 20. Sorry if I sounded rude haha just too excited and can't wait for this!
@Ari, yes! Please check your inbox! :)
@Ali, we apologize for the delay! Update is here tonight!
hi again :)
i thought we will have an update by now as promised.
Hey, any updates? x :)
@Ali -- We will have an update this coming Thursday, please stay tuned! :)
@Stacy - Updates are coming this Wednesday! We will try to keep everyone up to date!
any update on the project?
Getting excited to receive this! Keep the updates coming. ❤️
@ken, thank you for asking. Yes! We will have special deals for our backers.
@zyon, Thank you for letting us know! We were too excited to announce the news so we totally forgot to ask for the option! Thank you for following up :)
Will backers have access to extra filters at a reduced cost?
I'm concerned about the change in size. I pre-ordered based on what was shown for my cat. I have a large cat and don't want to have to take the dog version for my cat. Or... will both sizes be available in either cat or dog? If the height will be the same for both, then you can disregard this comment! Thank you. I'm looking forward to seeing the new versions.
Hi! Ps, you said there is two size for feline and canine, there were no option to choose in the survey~ I will like for canine! Ty
@Steve, Thank you for your support! We are as excited as your fur babies!
@Alexander, Thank you so much for your support! We will definitely input it as a GIFT, and we hope this method helps!
Tremendously excited for OMI! We have 4 furry babies that would benefit from such a helpful product. We're so excited! Cant wait!!
Hi. Gongratulations to a successful funding.
Would it possible to note a lower value in the custom Form for the packages to international destinations? This would save Money to the receipients. Also should this lower value on possible invoice within the package.
You have Then already the full amount of money from Kickstarter.
Merry Xmas and a happy, sucessful year 2018!
@Stephanie, Thank you for reaching out to us! Yes, if you were planning to gift OMI we will send a small gift to the recipient. Please message us or email firstname.lastname@example.org with your request! :) Sorry for the confusion!
Hi - was there a small gift prepared for those planning on giving OMI as a gift? You indicated that you had something planned, but didn't ever see any update.
@Christina, Thank you for your interest. It will be a universal adapter so it works for both 110v and 220v.
YES MY PRAYERS ARE ANSWERED
THIS PROJECT IS FULLY FUNDED WOO
Almost funded!!!!! :-)
Hi Vivipet, I have a question about voltage. Will it be a universal adapter or do we have to choose between 110 and 220?
Any chance to purchase some of your cat dog elevated feeders at discount price with this??
Hi Sonia, thank you for your support! Congrats on the move! And yes, you will be able to update everything before we ship which is around April! We will send out updates and survey when the campaign ends and we will put a note on your pledge! :)
Hi Vivipet, I currently live in NYC but may be moving to Paris soon. I just made a pledge with the US shipping option; will I be able to change this and the OMI’s voltage before it gets shipped? Also: I love the OMI design, but I’m not a big fan of the power cord being in the front. Is there a reason for this? Thank you!
@Marcy, thank you so much for your support! This means a lot to us!! As we mentioned previously, this Kickstarter campaign fund will help us tremendously in getting the product started. With tech product, it takes a lot of money and time to create something amazing. We will continue to work on this product no matter what happens, but it will move a lot slower without Kickstarter's help. So please help us and spread the word about OMI! Together, we can make OMI possible!
New to this idea- if you do not get 100% backing will the OMI still be available? Any idea of the cost? I can’t help but think you will sell them it looks amazing-I know I am in!!
@Avi, you're the bestest! How did we get so lucky! Thank you <3
their email is email@example.com :)
Hey Vivipet, you should send a submission to dogmilk - a modern blog for dog owners looking for modern and cool innovations/stuff for dogs. You can send them an email at http://dog-milk.com/contact/ - they could post on their website and provide more exposure for this project and hopefully get more backers through this!
@jake, thank you for your support and interest! The full ceramic version will be possible, and we aren't sure regarding the stainless steel. It is a possibility but will take us much longer to start having stainless steel as an option. We will keep you updated!
If this campaign is not successful. is there still like a preorder option for those who wish to get this? Maybe you could just make based on orders? Or if this campaign is successful and we want a Ceramic + Stainless Steel version, we could pay more and get that even though stretch goal is not met? This is an amazing project and I really want this to work! It'd be perfect for my dog!
At the end of your campaign, if you are successful in gaining your funding, would it be possible to order one of the other material types if the stretch goal is not met? I would really prefer a stainless version.
@Kit, thank you so much for your support! This means a lot to us. We will try our hardest to make it happen. With Kickstarter's help, we can move much faster in terms of producing and making OMI. Without Kickstarter's support, we will continue to work on it but it will be at a much slower pace. Please share it with your friends who have a cat or a dog!
Thank you! XOXO
@Avi, thank you so much! You're the bestest! And we have a pom named Chanel in our office too!
Do you have any backup plan in case this didn’t work?
Don’t get me wrong. - I want this to work.
I have 2 homes and will need 2
really hope for this to come live! shared this on my pet's IG @terrythepom :)
@Kit, thank you for asking. Ceramic and Stainless Steel both look stunning and super durable. Ceramic has more color choices. Although it is strong and durable, it's not indestructible. Stainless Steel can handle tough love, not as easy to get scratched. If you need further information, we will send a direct message to you with more informative pros and cons of the two materials. Thank you.
Ceramic vs stainless steel - can you highlight the pros and cons?
@rebecca, thank you for your support! You can edit your pledge by select a reward that has a pot/plant! OR we will have it as an add-on for you! When the campaign ends, we will send out a survey to all backers to see if they would like to add anything else additional! Thank you!
@Kit Ng, the discounted price is only for the live Kickstarter campaign. To pledge more than once, you can create another account and pledge! :) Thank you!
After the campaign- can the backers purchase extra OMI at discount price?
i was lucky enough to snag an omi early bird special. however, i would like to purchase several plant pots and the ceramic mug. will these be available on the website later? if not, would it be possible to include these and i'll update my pledge amount?
@Thomas, thank you for your interest. Since OMI works 24/7, it is NOT operated by batteries, it needs to be connected to the power line. It will work with 110v and 220v. Thank you :)
@Kit Ng, Thank you for your interest. We believe OMI will able to provide water for all of your furballs. We have 3 cats (12 lbs, 10 lbs, 5 lbs) and 1 dog (25 pounds) and they are able to share it up to 3 days before refilling. OMI can hold up to 10 cups + 1 reserved cup. Thanks :)
Does OMI operate with batteries or does it need to be connected to power? If it needs to be connected, will it work with the 220/240V electricity?
@Patrick, thank you for your interest! OMI holds up to 10 cups of water so it definitely can fulfill the thirst of medium to large breeds such as Shiba Inu (in the video) to a full-size Poodle (as seen in the picture).
I have 2 cats (8 lbs and 12 lbs) and 1 small dog (12 lbs).
1. Will one cat OMI be able to provide water for 3 animals ?
2. And how often do I need to refill fill the OMI ?
