One Final Step
For the past few months we’ve all been working to deliver your rewards by the end of this week. However we’ve been met with one (hopefully) final hurdle to clear. Earlier this week we received, what we hoped were, the final test plastic shells for your Pips. On inspection we discovered tiny scratches and air bubbles in a small number of the shells. We want to deliver to you a product that not only functions perfectly, but is also aesthetically beautiful and decided that this was not acceptable.
We’ve spent the past few days working very closely with the tool maker and manufacturer to pinpoint the issue. We have decided to re-mould all the shells to ensure this isn’t an on-going issue as we enter large scale manufacturing.
As a result of this issue, we’ve had to delay shipment. We will send you all a final shipping update next week. We are extremely grateful for support the Kickstarter community has shown us and we feel the most fitting way in showing that appreciation is in wanting to give you all a reward worthy of your time, effort and support.
In our last update we showed the photos of the prototype packaging we approved for large scale printing. Last week we received batch these boxes.
Oddly enough we are delighted to announce that our packaging is already out of date. On Monday, Pip received it’s patent from the United States Patent and Trademark Office!
CE certification & Patent
Also as of this week we can confirm Pip has received CE certification. CE is the European Electronics standard equivalent of the FCC Declaration of Conformity. Another win from your support!
We will be in touch
At some point next week we will post a final shipping timeline. We continue to appreciate and value your ongoing support.
