Yesterday morning Meizu announced a delay in the shipping of their Indiegogo founded Gravity floating speaker which had to be delivered this month. The said speaker will instead get shipped in the first quarter of next year.
The Gravity floating speaker campaign was launched back in May 2016 on the U.S. crowd sourcing website Indiegogo. The speak has been created by the Japanese designer Tsuboi Hiroshi and is supposed to be part of a design ecosystem, which obviously won’t be happening any soon.
Meizu’s product manager briefly explained that the delay is due to problems in production, although they have scrapped 7 molds during the manufacture, they still can’t achieve the desired result. They also had issues with hardware supplies that did not do their job properly and lead to this disappointing end.
What are your thoughts on the matter? Have you backed this campaign or any other that did not end well? Let us know in the comments below.
