We recently announced our new contract with Pumpkin, Inc. Pumpkin will support us to build Overview 1 CubeSat bus hardware and flight hardware.
...“By selecting Pumpkin as our prime contractor, SpaceVR builds upon over thirty years of experience to ensure that we create a stable and robust technological architecture that functions now, but also scales into our future goal of live cinematic virtual space tourism,” said Blaze Sanders, SpaceVR CTO...
We delivered one and are preparing to ship out the other three Samsung GearVR's to the VR Kids Program winners. They will be getting a Samsung GearVR, the newest Samsung S7 phone, Unlimited VR Content forever, and a custom lesson plan developed by SpaceVR's new school outreach and community builder Tomoya Mori:
Risskov Skole - Risskov, Denmark
Academy for Science and Design - Nashua, NH
Marryatville High School - Adelaide, Australia
Broadway Mandarin Immersion Elementary School - Venice, CA
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!
