We are excited to give you a progress report on where we are at thus far. Assembly is Complete and we had great testing results with minimal fallout. The molding for the casing is being made Now and we  are expecting our first production samples in the next few weeks. We will be fulfilling Beta Tester rewards as soon as we receive these samples.

We experienced some quality issues with our first cables and have found a higher quality, stronger flat noodle cable from a different source.  Soon we will be sending out the Kickstarter Survey to get your updated address and to confirm your pledge reward.
