It’s me, Chris, your chief nerd writing here. The last update was hard to write but we’re fortunate to have great backers that support our journey, we can’t thank you guys enough!
So as scheduled, the tech team is currently in Shenzhen, China. It’s not an ideal timing in China: it is the Chinese new year. Every manufacturer shuts down at that time. However, our Asian manufacturer was kind enough to provide us key staff to help us tweak our electronics quickly even during the holidays.

MEETING WITH SOME BACKERS
I got the chance to meet with backers during CES. I love meeting backers, even during tougher times because of the delays. I’m so thankful to all of you for helping our project get started. This was a deep emotional moment as I feel super accountable for our success. You guys put your own money in a completely new company. I’m extremely sad each time we need to announce a delay. It’s just really hard to predict unknown challenges with a groundbreaking product. Fortunately, the vast majority of our backers are supportive, which helps us stay focused and dedicated in this super hard technical project.
Let’s make a quick recap of the free perks for the superbackers program:
We’re going to provide you with another free perk in the next update!
I remember reading the saying: ‘Sometimes, you need to go slow in order to go fast.’ With our new manufacturer, we’re confident we’ll slash a lot of production time and bring you guys an outstanding product.
