OTON X BETA
This is a first for a crowdfunding project. When you back the OTON X project you become eligible to become an OTON X beta tester to test the user interface, game creation and new updates. With this incentive backers are helping with feedback and providing suggestions as we develop the final hardware and software builds. We feel that while you wait on us to complete the project you should have the ability to login to our beta server and provide vital input to make this project a success.WHERE YOU COME IN
We have sourced a leading contract manufacturer to develop,
assemble and package the units to our exact specifications. However, we need
your help to go from a working prototype to a full scale production and to
get volume discounts so we can offer OTON X units for the lowest retail
pricing possible. Your pledge will go towards hardware production and other
related testing requirements. What really makes OTON X special is our
custom operating system which goes hand-in-hand with the specialized PCB quad-core chipset. Our ten years of experience in game development and
manufacturing will help us successfully deliver this amazing platform to our backers.
*Donate today! The OTON console will retail for $179, $379 and $479 in 2014. Plus, all supporters get an upgraded package which includes more cloud storage, physics and game enhancements for the life of their console!!!
**Unfortunately we have to ask all our international supporters to add $30 for shipping outside the U.S. for all systems and all supporters must add $30 for extra game controllers if not listed with package.)

Risks and Challenges
The biggest challenge with OTON X was producing its next generation software and a functional prototype. We have a proven concept, that went through three years of iterations and we are currently finalizing the board design. The final product may slightly differ in size (may be bigger) and performance (may be faster).
The boards are pre-examined and verified with hardware specialist at a New Jersey based manufacturing company, where we decided to produce the boards. Our funding goals cover a minimal batch of systems, programming, FCC/UL testing and packaging.
We plan to finish the production of the basic OTON X in July 2014; we left enough time until the release to solve any unexpected problems.Our current team has over 10 years of manufacturing and developing history. If needed, our talented team with a diverse set of skills will do a great job in problem solving. Our goal is to have units ready in 2014 for backers.
