We’ve commissioned the Jellypods silicone moulds

After a lot of talk and about 40 blog posts, we’ve finally taken the first major step to bringing Jellypods to life.

Earlier this week we finalized the alpha design and we’re very happy to announce we have placed our first purchase order for Jellypods mould tooling.

Yes, that’s right – we’ve commissioned the mould tooling, which means we have started the clock ticking to actually getting the first Jellypods samples in our hands a few weeks from now!

This is a major step to making Jellypods real, and the finished tooling should be producing the first samples sometime in late March/early April. We’ll keep the blog as up-to-date as possible as we move forward, and hopefully sometime in the next few weeks we’ll post some video of the first Jellypods coming out of the factory gates.

And once we have those first-born Jellypods, we’ll be asking for a small number of volunteers to take some of the first samples out on the road, testing these sweet, soft, flexible, gorgeous little products out in the field as you travel thousands of miles across the world.

Stay tuned to find out how you can be one of only a handful of people on the entire planet to get one of the first Jellypods ever made.

In the meantime we have plenty of things to keep you entertained – new websites, design registrations, new models – tell your friends!
