    I ended up getting the early bird!

    They are about 1/4 the way to goal so far on day 1, with 76 early birds left at the time I'm posting this.

    Update 1:

    Hello our first 380 backers,

    THANK YOU! We're so excited and cannot wait to bring Ripple to you! We're off to a great start and still got 43 days left to reach our goal!

    It would be awesome if you can introduce Ripple to your friends and family so that we can create a clean energy future together.

    Weve post our experimental data on our campaign page:



    We will provide another experiment video soon. Please feel free to message us through Kickstarter with any other questions.

    Thanks again for your lovely support!

    Cheers,*
    Ripple Team

    ordered one
    if it goes beyond the typical KS vaporware
    it seems like a perfect companion for the pebble time
    I have a pebble round on order (because of its thinness)
    but may switch it to a pebble time now

    Update 3
    An Extended-Length Design!
    Posted by GIXIA GROUP
    We heard your request and add extra length to Ripple for people who have big wrists!
    The strap's length is now 68mm and 114mm. The wrist length for the closest hole is 170mm and the farthest hole is 220mm.

    New Length
    Please continue to share the Ripple Kickstarter campaign so we can reach our goal and start producing these awesome solar-powered straps! Thank you!

    Death.


    Thanks for being a backer of Ripple: The Most Advanced Solar Watch Strap for Pebble Time.. Unfortunately, this project did not reach its funding goal by its deadline. Because funding on Kickstarter is all or nothing, your pledge of $69.00 USD has been automatically canceled and your card will not be charged.
    The fact that you showed your support is still appreciated! If you’d like to follow along with the creator’s next steps, stay tuned to their updates. You can even drop them an encouraging message or comment on their project page.
    Thanks again for supporting this project.

    As mentioned above, their Kickstarter funding was unsuccessful. Haven't heard if the company still plans on pursuing this further or exploring other options though.
