Risks and challenges

We’ve already built the prototype, and the testing was completed successfully as well. (Check out the reaction video above). To facilitate mass production, we are currently simplifying design and assembly processes. Manufacturing will be solely based in Korea for quality control of the product despite the cost increase. The designs of the cases, packages, accessories are yet to be decided. We will share with our backers as soon as it is confirmed.
