Hey there -
We just sent out a backer update via e-mail. We've had some folks mention they haven't been receiving updates. If you did not receive the update from earlier today, please let us know by e-mailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
It was titled 'ilumi indiegogo campaign update'. We will continue to use e-mail as our means of communication and want to ensure you're plugged into the ilumi nation.
If you did receive the update earlier today, sorry for the duplicate communication.

As springtime arrives, the weather is heating up here in Texas and so is ilumi. We’ve been heads down on development the past few weeks, and it’s time for a long overdue update on the world’s most intelligent lights.
To share some key wins, we’ve finalized the mechanical models and hardware for both the large and small ilumis. They look awesome and are true to the initial concept. We’re also thinking we’ll be able to pump even more brightness out of these babies than previously thought. Check out the pictures of the 3D printed small ilumi below. It’s awesome to look at our previous prototypes next to our current prototypes and realize how far ilumi has come. Right now, we’ve placed orders for components and materials to build 30 of each type over the next few weeks that we’ll use these for testing and certification.
It does look like the timeline to get ilumi in your hands will be delayed a bit. Of course, we’re disappointed about the delay but ultimately we want to ensure you’ll have a great experience right out of the box. More to come on timeline soon, so try to stay patient and keep the faith.
Also, thanks to all of you who confirmed your orders and the 213 that took the time to answer our questions. Lots of great insights that will help us make ilumi better for you.
Thanks again for all your support and keep on shining!

$60,000 raised, 700 iLumis, 35 countries, and 400 contributors. It’s hard to explain how amazing it feels to share your passion and vision and have people from all over the world embrace it. We are so grateful to all of you for contributing your hard earned money to a belief that light should do more than just help you see. A belief in iLumi.
It started off with our vision, but you all are a part of this now. The iLumi Nation has been born and together we are going to light up the world! Together, we will redefine what lighting is and what it can be. We will create amazing lighting experiences, and we are going to do it responsibly. Already, your contributions and use of iLumi will offset about 600,000 kilowatt hours of energy, the equivalent of saving 1000 barrels of oil from being consumed.
For all our contributors, keep an eye out for an e-mail with a link to an iLumi survey in the next week where we’ll need your help to confirm your order and answer some questions to refine what iLumi will be. Also, a big congratulations and thank you to Elise Adams, Daniel Mclaughlin, and Mahmoud Elsaid for sharing and winning the iLumi referral contest!
To all of you, thank you again. We are dedicated and committed to deliver you, the iLumi Nation, a simple, quality, and amazing lighting experience that will similarly return the favor and have you say…
Corey, Swapnil, and the iLumi Team
THE LIGHT SHINES ON
iLumi Nation –
Good news, we decided to extend our Indiegogo campaign a few more weeks! We’re sincerely thankful for all the supporters that have joined the iLumi Nation so far from all over the world. We’re well on our way with development and looking forward to shipping your iLumis in the spring, but there’s more room at the table!
So please continue to tell your friends and family about iLumi and let’s keep growing the Nation!

iLumi Nation -
If you or a friend have waited until the last moment to jump in and reserve your iLumis, the time is now! There are only hours left in the iLumi indiegogo campaign, so help us close the campaign with a bang!
Remember that even if we don’t reach our $100k goal, we are moving forward to deliver your iLumis in the Spring.
A Texas sized THANK YOU to all of you who believe in us and believe in iLumi. 2013 is going to be a bright year, and we’ll never forget our backers that helped bring iLumi to light.
