BackerKit Update:

Our $750 backers will also be getting their gold plated Samsung GearVR's soon. We have all the Samsung GearVR's in house and we will be starting work with iOS Optics (our gold plating supplier) in Santa Clara, CA in July. Ahead of schedule :)

For backers who have not answered their BackerKit surveys yet, please visit www.spacevr-step-into-space.backerkit.com. 91.3% of you have been super responsive to answering our BackerKit survey—even though it may not seem like much as an individual backer, it's tremendously helpful in keeping track of all 1382 of you!

Lastly, this week we will be charging all of the pre-orders in BackerKit (NOT the credit cards from the Kickstarter. You have already been charged).

Thank you for your continued support...we would not be going to space without you!

Ad Astra,

The SpaceVR Team
