CEO Update: HAPIfork Shipped to Kickstarter Beta Testers!

Hello HAPI backers !

I am so HAPI today to announce that we have just shipped HAPIforks to all our Kickstarter beta testers this week!

If you are a beta tester, you should have already heard from your HAPI Buddy (it may have even been me) that you should expect your HAPIfork in a few days. YEEES it is coming. 🙂

And it is now somewhere between Shenzhen (China) and the USA or Europe or Australia.

The HAPI Buddies and I are personally calling and emailing daily our beta testers to get their valuable feedback. We want to make sure that the whole HAPI experience is seamless when we launch to the general public and we hope to be ready for the Christmas Season.

And we’re just getting the ball rolling.

In just a few more days, on October 1 we will also be shipping the HAPIfork to our thousands of HAPI Kickstarter backers. And 3 weeks after that, if everything goes well and we have the validation from our community which is key for me, the HAPIfork will be available for ret ail on our website at HAPI.com internationally, exclusively through Brookstone retail stores and Brookstone.com in the US, and through Aujourdhui.com in France.

We’re slightly behind our original projected schedule, but this only brought about improvements that you, the users, can enjoy (check the previous blog entry for the details).

It’s going to be a VERY busy month for the HAPILABS Team and Slow Control–the company responsible for the HAPIfork technology–in the lead-up to the retail launch, and at the same time, it’s very exciting to be working with such a dedicated and enthusiastic team all around the world.

I’d like to leave you with some HAPI news: here is a shot from the HAPI team’s meeting yesterday, with the announcement that the iOS7 HAPI apps are up and running. 🙂ceo1

And I hope to bring you even HAPIer news when I check in again next month. 🙂 I thank you all for being a part of the HAPI revolution. Together, let’s EAT healthier, LOVE better, and LIVE longer!

Stay HAPI,
Fabrice
