We’re hoping to raise $80K with our campaign. We have chosen our manufacturing partners, and are ready to go with production. The money raised will go towards tooling and sourcing the best quality materials.
We are two brothers who love making robots and playing ping pong. We’ve been playing together since we were kids. We knew each other’s game pretty well, so we can frequently enjoy the moment of epic shots when we play against each other.
Risks and challenges
Like any hardware project, there are risks and challenges associated with manufacturing and supply chain logistics. We’re working with a tier-one manufacturing partner, but that said, there is always a chance that unexpected changes or issues may arise during execution impacting the delivery schedule.
Delays may arise from the following:
Injection molding – circumstances outside of our control may impact the design and pricing of the tooling.
Component supply shortages – Our product is designed to be able to use components from multiple suppliers wherever possible.
Quality Control – As with any large volume order, there is a small chance of defective units. It’s very important to us that we deliver the best product to you, so we will be checking every unit before shipping.
