We did it! Thanks to your generous support, we not only more than tripled our funding goal but broke our $750K stretch goal! That means we’ll be having different colored knobs for the new Nomiku!
With that said, some of you are probably wondering what happens next.
The Nomiku team is now hard at work beginning manufacturing on the new Nomiku which means extensive DFM (design for manufacturing) for tooling. We are still slated for our March 2015 ship date for the US/Canadian/Mexican model and will keep all of you international backers updated on our progress, a timeline will be provided once we submit for CE. Besides sending updates here, we’ll keep our Facebook page andblog consistently updated on our progress.
When it gets closer to shipping time, we’ll be sending out a questionnaire, where you can give us your shipping address, knob color preference, and any other special notes to our team.
If you know anyone who missed out on the Kickstarter campaign, let them know that they can go to our site right now and preorder for $199–that’s still $50 off retail! It doesn’t matter if your international or US-based–you can preorder!
