Pimax 8K Progress [Updated: Feb 6, 2018]


#497

Aside from ‘deserving’ anything, tbh I’m really just interested to see how the engineers have progressed with the issues they faced previously.
They know what needs doing, just want to see if they were successful or not.


#498

Yes we all want to see what they’ve achieved last month. And if their timeline still stands.


#499

Yes Bro, we had been waiting almost half a year since we spent our money in this project and I think we’ll be waiting far more…


#500

Honestly I’d say you’re right. I think they’re still very far from solving all the problems, just because it seems so much work and so little time. Pimax hasn’t been active on the forum, it almost seems they’ve had a long Chinese holiday. Let’s hope that’s not true and that they’ve been working super hard. However, the fact we now even have to push for an update after a month is a sign on the wall too I’m afraid … We’ll see though.


#501

And the “x” version… I don’t want to think about it… Next year maybe… :fearful:


#502

The natives are restless. It is March and vacation is well over. An update seems in order. Hoping…


#503

Guys, cut them some slack here. The Spring Festival just ended on the 2nd of March.

I know people are all impatient and such, but they even said that their suppliers and import/export partners were also going to be closed for the holiday.

I am sure that an update will be forthcoming, give them a chance to get their bearings post-holiday.


#504

I think they went back to work on February 26th.


#505

Hi the team is back from vacation, but please allow us some time to sync up with our vendors and put up the progress update.


#506

hope you all had great vacation. :slight_smile: look forward to any updates


#507

Didn’t know they were even on vacation. Was this really a good time for that ?
We got a deadline and 5 thousand nervous investors…AND WE’RE GOING TO DISNEYLAND WOO


#508

National holiday. Be no different than scrooge expecting you to work xmas day. Plus their suppliers off for the same holiday.


#509

Well it seems PImax was closed 3 weeks which seems a little long. If I only had a few weeks to make some important changes I’d pay my employees double and keep on working instead of closing down the place and give them some extra free time later on (see what Elon Musk does with Tesla for example). I’m quite amazed actually that xunshu said they’d be sending out units to testers half march and then close down the place so long. Next week is half march already and it seems nothing really happened? Xunshu said that March was an extremely important month, with units being sent out to testers, roadshows and important milestones. And then they just close the place down for 3 weeks?


#510

Please clarify the next update date of the following items at least. We are investors for you, not shop customers or volunteers. That is a kickstarter, there is no help for the delay. However, investors have the right to hear the reason and correspondence, I think.
HMD progress ( Hard and Soft )
Selection the testers and test schedule
Controllers progress
Lighthouse 2.0
Accessories ( headstrap, eyetracking system, etc)
Ship date of product model

I do agree timing is not good but if your suppliers are closed it poses other difficulties. Truthfully I am a bit envious as you’d never get that kind of time off as a holiday here in Canada & the USA since business dictates government policy more than ppl do.

But yeah it does make time quite tight for their projections & i have to presume they likely accounted for that. I would imagine some still did some work from home while off.

Hell we used to have a week off for xmas being a factory. Then one year they more or lesd ppsted “Good news due to the needs of the business; Xmas is cancelled!” This was announce 2weeks before hand so no one could scheduled it off. Yet this company claims to support folks having families.


#512

Creativity and Problem solving does not come with ever increasing pressure and limited time… I know lots of “Head of departments” which believe more is more… nothing is further from the truth. So I hope they got the time of they needed to do what needs to be done refueled and with renewed enthusiasm from now onward.


#513

That’s very true. But you don’t need holiday’s for that. I solved most of my coding problems when I was in the shower or in bed :slight_smile:


#514

Pimax warned that they would close from 9 to 25 February, they closed two weeks, not three.


#515

I hope so. Yet they make it look like they’ve just gotten back from their holiday’s. I guess we’ll see when Xunshu posts the update. Either way I’m losing my faith that Pimax starts shipping out units to testers next week.


#517

Where did they say this?
