Hey everyone, the beacons are here.

DHL dropped off 11 large cartons of tightly packed XY beacons at our distribution facility late Thursday.  It felt almost anticlimactic after the months of delays and setbacks we've had: one minute it read "With delivery courier", the next it was simply "Delivered".

We drove up this morning to personally inspect the beacons -- they looked good and the random tributes we tested worked well.  Here's a shot of our Director of Sales, Harry Reninger being happy for a change.

      @Brian, we are trying to organize a local (San Diego) meetup for us XY folks to meet and thank all the backers... with beer. Any interest?

    4. Daniel Wang // TEAM ZING on

      @Rebecca, we will take care of all that. One of us will reach out to you today to go over the exact details. In the meantime, we've petitioned Kickstarter to hide your comment as it contains your personal info. (unfortunately there doesn't seem to be a way for users/creators to manage their own comments.)

      You guys have been very communicative about all news ( good, bad, otherwise) even during times of delay. As a customer, it seemed a bit frustrating at times, but we need to remember we are customers of a start up, which isn't nearly as frustrating as RUNNING a startup business. It's very clear to me how seriously you take your business, and your backers. Looking forward to getting my tag, and celebrating with you guys online. If I lose something here in San Diego, I wonder if one of you guys will find it for me! (-: -Brian
