CKIE Week # 2 - The Journey Continues & Work Begins

The Big Board of ToDo's for the Week!

All because of the tremendous support here, we find ourselves at the two week mark at 400% of our goal and over 500 backers. For us it has been a mix of total excitement, and the realization we need to double down on our efforts to bring the Duet to life. A quality problem to be sure :) The continuing support is helping us to do more sooner - so we continue to be grateful for all the new backers and ongoing buzz about Duet.  

As you will see from the few posts that proceeded this one, we are hard at work moving Duet from the prototype phase into production, and it is our intent to be as transparent as possible as we continue on this journey. If you ever wanted a little peek behind the scenes of how a product such as Duet becomes a reality, keep checking in here and we will do our best to touch on the key elements.

There continues to be a number of good questions that we will address by updating the FAQ post, but if you don't see the answer there, please shoot us a note. One of the more common quetions is when will the Duet ship. The short answer is as soon as humanly possible, and the current plan puts that at the beginning of October. The support we have received on CKIE has been tremendous, and helped us meet our funding goal well ahead of time - which is fantastic. That said, we had not planned on ramping up production until the end of the project, so we are now in the process of accelerating things as much as we can - enabled by the ongoing support - but please do bear with us as we shift gears. We want to get Duet produced as quickly as we suspect you wish to have it, but want to make sure we do so to the highest quality possible.

THANK YOU again all so very much for your ongoing support. Having a community of people backing us from beginning is making this all the more rewarding. We are much looking forward to continuing to share the journey with you.

Ti & Michael
