  750£ is absolute bargain. 
 Guaranteed to get your money back later on second hand market too, so nothing to lose.
 
calm down a bit
 the price is without taxes etc. for europe they announced an additional VAT of £200

I am new to Kickstarter and don't know how it typically works, but this proposal seems odd to me. For example, I don't see the point of raising 100K given an apparently much larger investment in R&D to date.  I guess I would be more inclined to partake in Kickstarter if it was a make or break scenario for the product. Maybe someone with more knowledge of these things can elucidate: is the goal really to just raise 100K?

The goal is to raise at least £100K. I would be more inclined to back a project when I know the company has a solid track record, rather than backing a project from a new company that might never deliver and loose money. I guess they are raising funds to allow larger production runs, in order to cut down on manufactoring costs.

Remember to bring a drive, maybe they share some presets at the meet.

Supported the project!
http://kck.st/2aFlTCg

The Kickstarter did begin an hour before they said in the email, but even so it looks like the project is already 1/4 funded! Kiiiiinda cool.
It's definitely a financial stretch for me, I talked about it today to my friends, my my customers at work, and my fiancé, but eventually I decided I could swing it (and I don't have to sleep on the couch tonight!). For anyone curious, I was the 31st backer, and it looks like there's still 168 early bird priced units available (about $1k USD, price after Kickstarter will be $1600).

I heard the A8 back in er..2011 I think, dreamed of having one ever since, but it was too expensive for me. The A16 price is an absolute bargain and backing the kickstarter for 40% discount is a no-brainer. I'll be hearing it again at CanJam with my wife and I'm confident that once she's heard it too she'll agree with me.

# 60, glad to make it
I've learnt from the LH Labd geek Pulse, now I won't worry about the deadline, just let them do what they can, I will forget about it until the unit show up on my door.
1 question: so does it mean the Set top unit can be placed further in the room, and acted as a receiver for head tracking system. THe headtracking unit is connected by wire close to the main body?
