Is it possible for Alpha to be out by this year?


Vue have just released their May update and it seems that they are in the midst of finalizing their product. They did not mention anything about delays on delivery dates so I assume they are keeping their word to deliver by October.


Vue's product is merely a bone conduction earphone fitted in a glass. It's nothing revolutionary and there are a few competitors (zungle & a random dude) out there that have already released such product. On top of that Vue did not plan to have custom made frame for every individual, which means all the glasses are same in size.


The thing is, even though their project seems simple, it is taking them till middle of Q4 to deliver the product. Shima is by far a product that is very much superior in tech compared to Vue in my opinion and on top of that, every Alpha is custom made in size to fit the customers. The thing is Laforge is aiming to release the Alpha rev 1-3 within this year, is that even possible? Maybe it is because all the tech for Alpha has already been done long ago and Laforge can start production anytime they want. Even so, the production I assume may take longer time since the frames are custom made and the tech maybe more complex to produce than Vue's glasses. I wonder if the Alpha would be delayed till next year, what do you guys think?

    It's awful. I have to re-login constantly. The notifications bell drop-down doesn't work anymore. There's no good way to view the newest posts. The formatting is annoying, injecting styling for which I never asked and do no want. I could go on.

    Hey Laforge/Corey, any way I could stop by and check the place out? 👀 Came up from Texas for a weekend trip and remembered you were up here.
