GameBall is not yet available for purchase.
This is Eric with a project update on GameBall. The good news is the United Kingdom has begun lifting Covid19 lockdown restrictions. This is giving us more access to our manufacturing facility. We still have limitations, but we should be able to get back on our production schedule. One remaining hurdle is our EMC certification. This is a required certification to test how much electromagnetic interference (or noise) the unit produces. Once we pass this test, we can order and manufacture our final circuit boards. Most other items on our critical path are now complete. The firmware is going through final testing, and the raw components are being ordered. The user manual is complete and will be available in multiple languages. We are also working on a “Getting Started” video to explain all the functions and settings for GameBall in detail.
So, when will we ship? Our best-case schedule is shipping near the end of May with pre-sales starting a few weeks prior. However, this may change if we run into any production issues, or we don’t pass the EMC test. We will be sending out more frequent updates as we get closer to starting pre-sales.
Thank you all for sticking with us during the pandemic delays. We believe in the product and are committed to bringing GameBall to market.
