After further analysis I am not sure whether it is a solicitation or not. You may be right given that they stuck this paragraph in the middle of their March 25 -M1 Closed Beta post is what leads to the confusion:
"A tester should meet the criteria as below:
- Pimax 8K Kickstarter backer
- Trusted community leader, professional reviewer, or both
There will be around ten testing units in total, to account for availability of headsets and manageability of the program. We have eight testers on board so far. The testers are recommended by Pimax community members in the forum: forum.pimaxvr.com. They have already started to contribute thoughts to us in terms of how to improve the testing process, and how to make the community satisfied with the final product."
If they are not looking to adding a couple more testers, it was a stupid way to go about the email. I suppose nothing in Pimax communications should surprise us by now, though. Given they did an edit to the Mar 30 update rather than start a new post causing some to almost miss the new info, I am staring to get that old familiar headache. Sheesh
