This is the first written update for the Wooting two HE, if you’re new to these updates, buckle up, you’re in for a ride.
When we were close to mass-producing the Wooting two LE (the limited edition predecessor, delivering soon) and launched the Wooting two HE, we had made all the proper preparations:
1. Semi-finished the packaging design, just needed to sign off details.
2. Started building a new PCBA prototype that would save a few components and lower cost.
3. Placed purchase orders for the uncommon and most essential IC parts (hall effect sensors).
Since almost everything is the same for the Wooting two HE compared to the Wooting two LE – I thought this would be a straightforward and not too difficult process. Easy to predict a shipment date. But we have some type of omen that challenges us every step of the way. It’s incredible how complicated and challenging this whole business and process is.
How are we still around?
Plain and simple – You – believe in what we do and have the patience for us to figure it all out and deliver.
It started with the Wooting one, then two, and big-time with the Wooting two LE. The Wooting two LE status? Remember that Suez canal situation? That just delayed the boat shipment to the EU by about a month. This comes on top of all the other challenges these backers already had to endure during development. Really, a lot of love if you’re one of them reading this.
Yep, I’m warming you up. The Wooting two HE is going to be a little more bumpy than expected and I’ll write a few more updates than expected. I’m going to cover the following:
- The top plate manufacturer challenge (solved?)
- The procuring IC parts challenge (pending).
- Are you in Batch 1 or 2 and when you can expect delivery
- What we’re going to do to ensure faster delivery (Airfreight option)
