We’re excited to announce that we’ve launched The Pip on Kickstarter. Kickstarter is a crowdfunding website which offers individuals a way to fund innovative projects. Since it’s launch in 2009, 6.4 million people have pledged $1 billion, funding creative projects on Kickstarter.
A successful Kickstarter campaign will help us finalise our manufacturing arrangements, get our apps ready for release and deliver the Pip to your doorstep. With the support of the Kickstarter Community, we can make stress history!
So far, we have designed and manufactured a limited number of prototype Pips which we have used to develop, test and demonstrate our games. We have recently completed a hardware revision to update our Bluetooth technology and accommodate a smaller micro USB connector for charging. We finally have all the pieces in-place to move to full scale manufacturing. We have engaged a world leading manufacturing partner capable of meeting our Kickstarter demand and far beyond.
Our plan from now is to gear up for mass production by year end 2013.
Tooling for plastics and sensors
Packaging design and prototyping
Production test and QA implementation
Refinement of release titles to gold master
Pre-production test build
As part of the Kickstarter campaign we are offering a choice of 9 different pledge levels, including limited edition Pips.
