The WonderCon Update

Hello again everybody we are nearly at the 150k stretch goal, and wanted to give everyone an update to our progress.

At the end of next week, we will be heading to WonderCon in Anaheim, CA, where we have partnered with Aspen Comics to release the XY iOS app, working with 3rd party BLE beacons (true to the promise we made in our earlier stretch goal). Along with the available tags, we have been working with Webble, the Ultimate Event and Navigation App; they will be using our BLE technology to offer a scavenger hunt game at WonderCon. Attendees who complete the scavenger hunt game will get prizes ranging from a free tag to a 4-day pass to San Diego Comic-Con. Come check us out at booth 147, and be one of the first people to have XY in your hands.

When we’ve taken some breaks from coding and preparing everything for XY, we have been passing around the other KS campaigns that we all really like. So here are our 2 favorite campaigns that we have seen this week:

EverDock Go is the world’s first premium charging dock for the car. Using an aluminum top and a cutting edge design, the EverDock Go and EverDock Dash complement the quality and style of your smartphone and your automobile. Accommodating devices using Apple’s lightning, 30-pin, or micro-USB, the EverDock Go is sure to accommodate your phone and even works with phones in cases. Check out the EverDock Go at:

Dash Wallets:  Dash 3.0 is back with a one-piece designed premium leather wallet for minimalists. Carry the things you need, and access them easily.

And Finally Halo Belt 2.0 :

"Night-time visibility is very important! The Halo Belt 2.0 is the perfect bright and rechargeable safety device for runners, cyclists, and much more. Also USB rechargeable, the Halo Belt 2.0 is easy for daily use.":

That is all I have today. As we move into the last week, we are starting to look into ideas for a final stretch goal, so if and when we clear that magical 150k number, we will come back with what I imagine will a final goal for this campaign.

Keep sharing us with your friends, on Twitter, Facebook, and Google+.

      Joe - the items that we will have at WonderCon are not going to be the final production items. We will have 3rd party hardware that we are supporting, but the actual XY Hex tags are still in manufacturing right now. If you are more interested in getting started now, even if it is not our final production hardware, send us a message and we can try to work something out.

      I live in Santa Ana but have no time/intent to go to the conference in Anaheim. However, is there a way I can buy you a beer - or your choice- and pick up my items early?
