Production and Shipping Update


Hey Backers,

And happy holidays! We haven’t been taking much time off, so here’s the latest update on production and shipping.

We’re making great progress with production, and we’re on track with January 22 shipping. There’s some more tweaking to work through, but the process is running well overall.

Great news is that the first units are through the first article submission, which is the official approval of production units at the factory. Things are picking up fast over the following days, and this brings us that much closer to shipping.

The next step now is to review the first batch of the production run. This is a critical and very exciting stage of the production, and we’ll make sure to keep you up to date.

Here are some more snapshots from the production

We'll be back with more photos soon. 

The Premium Travel Case is almost finished and together with the packaging, the unboxing experience is almost ready. Some smaller details of the packaging are still being modified, such as the foam inside the travel case, but what you see below is for the most part the final design.

Check out the unboxing video below:

We’ve sent a review unit of FlowMotion ONE to Apple, which they require in order to release the App to the app store, and we’re eagerly awaiting final approval. Again, thank you so much to everyone who’s been apart of the beta testing. We’ll continue to push new updates as we get closer to launch.

The Android app is still in development, but it will be ready to go out for testing soon. As things are moving fast now, there’ll be more updates coming soon.

We’re really close now, and getting ready to start a new chapter in this journey with all of you. Thanks for being with us through it all, especially during this final stretch. We can’t wait to share ONE with you.

As always, we’ll keep you updated on everything as shipping approaches.

Shipping and Production Update


Hey Backers, here’s the latest news.

Good news - we’re on track for shipping the first units end of November. However, we won’t be able to ship all units in November, but we’re expecting to clear all backer units by December.

As mentioned, we’ll ship all units on a ‘first come first served’ basis, according to your backer number. However, there will be some deviations depending on where you’re located. More news on shipping when we get closer, we’ll do our best to ship as many as possible before the holidays.

We recently conducted the most critical stage of CE, FCC and IC certification for ONE. The certificates are mandatory for all consumer products, and with a strict set of regulations, it’s hard to pass the test. Happy to have cleared the first stage - on the first go.

In order to deliver as fast as possible, we’ve partnered up with Floship and DHL Express, the best combo we could ask for. Floship has fulfilled more crowdfunding campaigns than any other logistics company and DHL Express will ship to you in a matter of days. At shipping, you'll get notified and receive thorough tracking info directly from them.

With shipping approaching fast we need to secure in all address and shipping information. Make sure you’ve responded to the backerkit survey and registered the correct shipping info. If you’re not sure, check your status by following this link (or the previously given backerkit login)

Besides production, we’re continuously working on the app. We’re getting a steady stream of user feedback, fixing bugs, building new features and getting ready for launch. Stay tuned for new versions (with editor for video!), and Android beta soon.

We’re also finishing the efforts of optimizing the control system (firmware), making sure we have a state-of-the-art user experience. In addition, we’ll continuously update firmware via the app in the future.

Expect another update in the 2-3 weeks, in addition to several smaller videos and photo updates coming up. We’ve got a lot going on and will keep you up to speed!

Thanks for all your support.

Production and Shipping Update


Hey!

Here’s a short update with some exciting news.

We recently conducted EMC (electromagnetic compatibility) and ESD (electrostatic discharge) pre-tests of FlowMotion ONE - and it passed with flying colors.

All electronic products have to pass these test in order to get FCC, IC, ETSI and CE approval, and not all of them do. The tests are basically to make sure your FlowMotion ONE doesn’t juice you with any electromagnetic signals or electrostatic discharges (and according to the test, you’ll be perfectly safe).

The tests are performed in a certified EMC Laboratory, specifically designed to stop outside electromagnetic radiation and prevent echoing of electromagnetic waves - and it looks pretty cool.

Other than that, production is underway and we’re still looking at late October shipping. Stay tuned for a thorough update next week.

We want to give back to all of you, and plan to build extensive how-to guides on our blog and YouTube, specifically tailored to you. We’ll talk to industry experts and invest time and effort in curating the best possible guides. Expect to learn about everything from camera settings to editing and how to use the stabilizer to get epic camera movements. 

But in order to tailor the content, we’d love to hear what you want to learn more about. Click here to tell us what you want to learn more about! 

More news coming next week.

Pre-tests and a Quick Survey - What Do You Want to Learn More About?


Hey there!

Thanks for checking in, here’s some exciting news.

Production is starting up next week! We’re beyond excited to get started, and the current estimate is 6 weeks production time, which puts us on track for late October shipping.

Looking back at our previous updates, you can see that we’ve worked through issues, redesigns, and unexpected hurdles, so to start the production up at last marks a really important milestone. Countless hours of work have been laid down thus far, both by our production partners and by us. We’re humble to have an incredible engineering team, with CTO & Co-founder Eirik leading the pack, and dedicating so much energy towards making ONE ready. We’re excited to share more moving forward.

In the meantime, we’ve got some other news for you:

A new iteration of the Extension Pole is ready. The threads are improved for more stability and a smoother attachment process. In addition, the joints are reinforced to withstand more weight:

The pole itself has gotten a fresh look, with a tighter carbon fiber stitching and a clean finish. In addition, we’ve further iterated the rubber on the grip, giving it a cleaner look more in tune with the rest of the design - without compromising the confident grip feel:

Thanks to everyone who is providing feedback! Until now, we’ve focused on developing features, which requires a lot of “back end” work (managing memory, CPU/GPU access and other stuff you can’t see). But, we’ve taken a lot of great feedback on the user experience, and will push a new update with improved design (looking really good) within the next few days (Oyvind is tweaking out the last details). Stay tuned!

The Android version is in development, and apart from minor adaptations to the Android platform (mostly back end stuff) it’ll be identical - both in features and design. We’re thrilled to share more news and beta testing moving closer to launch, with more info coming up in the updates to follow.

Stay tuned for more news coming soon.

Hey

Hope you're enjoying summer! It’s public holiday here in Norway, but the FlowMotion office is boiling and we’re hard at work getting your stabilizer ready. 

This is just a short update, with a video highlighting some of the key features that differentiate FlowMotion ONE from the rest:

We're awaiting some key information in order to give you a thorough update next week. Stay tuned!

Thanks a lot to everyone who is currently testing the beta, the feedback you send us is very helpful! We're currently adding new features, updating the AutoFollow™ algorithm and will add another 100 users by the end of the week (users are added sequentially in the order of sign up). The Android version is not ready for beta testing yet, but don't worry, you're not forgotten.
