⭐ What's New

Black, Gray, and Patterned fabric is moving into production. We've began sampling the premium colours - Jade Green, Deep Blue, and Sunrise Orange.

Hardware is locked in 🧠 Firmware development is progressing nicely, and our mobile app is in the late stages of it's design. We brought on Shaun Fickling, a PhD Neuroscientist, to aid in the development of our neurofeedback algorithms.

Neural Music Soundscapes are in production 🎵 Piano, Guitar, Ambient, Rain, Ocean, and White Noise. We'll share more on the music direction in December, but the samples we’ve tested sound amazing in the mask.

Manufacturing contoured foam has been challenging - everything from one of our factories being hit by a typhoon, to our steel tooling cracking just last week. Creating new molds takes time, about 3-4 months to have them reliably built, polished and tested, and that has impacted our timeline.

This means our Beta will be launching in April 2024 instead of December with full production shipping in early Q3 instead of Q1. Please watch the video for the full story.

⚡ Requests

Do you know a high-level software developer who would like to work on the world's first neurofeedback sleep mask? If so, I would appreciate an introduction.

Thanks again for all your support, it's been great talking to you all over text, email, and messenger. This delay is disappointing, but in the grand scheme of things, we are SO close.

As always, reply to this email with your questions, comments, and concerns.

Talk soon,
Michael
