I will continue to wait patiently.

It is much appreciated! If I'm lucky, I'll get two free weeks until New Year, so that should really help me pick up the pace.

Awesome project! Good luck!

Thanks a bunch! I keep forgetting that posting more often also means more people will find this thread. I should work on that as well.

I'm still interested iFreilicht!  I have a fist full of cash when ever this item is ready to ship.  :)


I7-7700k@5.1ghz + 1080ti @ 2050mhz + 32gbs Ram + 2TB SSD = CSGO

i7-6700k@4.9ghz + 980ti @ 1501mhz + 16gbs Ram + 1 TB SSD = Backup

i7-3770k@4.8ghz + 680 4gb + 32gbs Ram + 500gb SSD = Retired/Office work

Final update.

 

I've got some bad news for all of you. Hereby, I am stalling this project.

 

At this point, I have zero motivation to continue this, and that means it would not become the product I wanted it to be in the beginning. Its quality could not be good enough for my standards, software updates would be delayed, as well as manufacturing and shipping, even support would be far below what one could call acceptable. Everything that you've heard about a bad crowdfunded product would be absolutely unavoidable if I tried to continue this. I now understand exactly why that sort of stuff happens, and I am very glad that I held off on running a crowdfunding campaign. Let's end this on good terms.

 

I've started my internship to prepare for an Industrial Design Master degree, and that takes most of the energy I have every day. Everything that remains, I'm putting into my musical skills. The Iris 16 was one of the reasons why I decided to take this route, it convinced me that I have the skills and mindset to work in this field but need to learn a lot more to do it right.

 

The only thread about Iris 16 that I'll keep updated is the one on smallformfactor.net, we'll also discuss on there if and how anyone can take over this project so that maybe Iris 16 will come to fruition in the hands of somebody else.

 

Thank you to everyone of you who gave feedback and supported this project!

SNIP!

Sorry to hear this man. You're doing the right thing though, I would hate something that I poured my heart and soul into, to end up as something that I couldn't care less about.

Well, I wish you all the best... you certainly have the right stuff as far as I am concerned, and that's pride in your work and integrity, which is much more than I can say for some business owners.

I think you will go far, and you will be even better at this stuff once you have completed your training. All I can say is I wouldn't give up on it completely if I were you, I would put it on the back burner until you've had some more time training in your skills, and you may think of another way to do it, or improve upon it even. So IMO it'd be better to give it time to see what to do with it if anything... if you for sure kill it or give the project to someone else, then you may regret it. Maybe give it 6-12 months and then decide, at least then you could say you gave it more thought while you weren't stressed about it. Completely your choice of course, I'm not trying to dissuade you, just don't want you to regret in the future after all the hard work you put in is all... I support you either way :)

 

Anyway, I wish you all the best whatever you do. Keep working on something, even if you kill this project for sure. You definitely have the skills.

Good thinking on your part, and I'm thankful for your concern. Rest assured that I've already done this. Since July, I've not worked much on this and I started to contemplate this step a couple of months ago. I'm glad to give it somebody else, I know a few people who I trust to be able to bring this to life in a professional and community-facing manner. Everybody wins in this situation :)

That's good, just wanted to make sure you weren't upset and reacting to some bad news or something, I didn't think you would give up on this lightly, but just wanted to offer a suggestion in case you hadn't considered every alternative.

I hope you'll keep thinking of ideas and tinkering at least.. you seem to have a knack for it.

That's such a shame. Still, you did a fantastic job, and I've enjoyed following your progress a lot.

 

As a former student of Industrial Design myself (albeit at Bachelor level), I wish you the absolute best of luck with your internship!
