Hey guys,

we hope you're all doing well, as we are on the final stretch of getting everything together!

That being said, we have some good news and some a-little-less-good news for you. So let's rip off the bandaid first: we're postponing the delivery of the Feelbelt to the middle of November. Due to "you-know-who" we are currently waiting for the batteries to be delivered.



New Stuff

The good news is: we are using that time to beef up our packaging and accessories, so you will not only get a high class product, but also a proper box and unique cables! Fancy a first look? Well, here it is! Still in progress!



What do you think of the design? We're so stoked to finally send them out!

Btw, make sure you've ordered the correct amount and lenghts of cables for your setup. You can still update your order until 15th of Oct. Here: https://feelbelt.backerkit.com


Our belt buckles have arrived

After gathering a lot of feedback from users, we think we found the perfect buckle for the Feelbelt. Easy to put on and release, with a very clever magnetic trick. Check out the stash!


 New staff
 

Julia

We take your insights very seriously. Therefore, to improve our communications, we are going to hire Julia as our new communications manager! She will be the person to tell you what we're doing, when we're too busy doing things ;)

Maneet

Maneet started as a student intern in the marketing department some time ago. And since we where so overwhelmed by his skills and swift learning, that we decided to hire im full time! Next to his job, Maneet is working on his master thesis with "crowdfunding" as his topic of choice. He would love to come back to you guys at some point and would highly appreciate your feedback!

Kevin

Kevin is taking care of our project management for basically everything. Due to Corona we struggled with some of our delivery chain, but Kevin managed to keep everything on track as good as possible. Other than that, he's also the great mind behind the box design. Right now he is working his butt off to ensure we're all going to enjoy the Feelbelt before Christmas!



That's it for today, next update will come from our lovely Julia already! Talk soon!

Feelbelt live at IFA 2020 – the world-famous trade show for consumer electronics
about 2 months ago – Tue, Sep 08, 2020 at 12:59:50 PM

Dear Feelbelt Family,

as you may have read in our social media channels, we’ve physically attended the IFA Special Edition 2020. For a long time, it was unclear whether the IFA will take place at all. So, we were particularly pleased that this important event took place – although only for trade visitors and media representatives. We have missed you! :(

The Final Prototype in front of the IFA building (Messe Berlin)

It was three days full of interesting contacts and press interviews. We’ve had the chance to talk to some promising distribution and business partners. As soon as there are news about this, we’ll share them with you! Unfortunately, most of the media coverage generated during the exhibition is in German. Some high reach media, like ZDF (Nano), ProSieben (Galileo), RTL, N-tv, rbb, MDR and Computerbild covered our Feelbelt in interviews and reports, mostly in live-streams.

Our Booth in Hall A, City Cube, IFA NEXT (for startups)
The rbb (Rundfunk Berlin-Brandenburg) tried the Feelbelt in action

The IFA, as in 2019, has again brought us some steps forward and we’re very excited about what the future will bring!

Thanks to all of those who visited us at our booth and covered the Feelbelt!

Of course, we have missed consumers like you. With you, the exhibition would have been twice as great and successful. 

Best,

Benjamin and the Feelbelt Team
