@Xunshu: good stuff !
Just one question: with the controllers being in a design stage and working prototypes only expected for summer 2018, what is the realistic time schedule Pimax are considering until actual delivery to backers ? And I do not mean the absolute best case scenario, but one which takes into account that you will need a couple of iterations, will encounter issues. Same experience as with the 8K development.
I think you will be aware that Pimax have an ambitious goal here with this design, combining the best of the Touch and Knuckles controllers - it is not trivial to get this right. And, by the way, I suppose most of us share one sentiment, we do not wish for controllers with the poor build quality of the wands Pimax showcased with the 8K during the KS campaign last year, we need a much better quality.
I am not trying to be negative, I just think you will make your own life much easier in the communication with the backers if you give realistic outlooks rather than best case ones, because the best case delivery date comes and goes, we do not get the controllers and you see some users get really angry about the Pimax communication strategy - they will claim Pimax lied, etc., etc.. I am not asking you to just give a date of 6 months later, I would like to understand what the Pimax planning internally is, if you have any realistic planning taking into account the average of throwbacks to be expected.
