We almost got kicked out of CES for this…

True story! Apparently, you are not supposed to canvas the CES floors like we did in the video… so we asked to take a selfie with the security guard and he jovially obliged.

WATCH: We took a prototype to CES (and it was awesome)

THE GOOD: We got GREAT potential customer feedback from stylish young ladies saying they really loved SNAP Ring: 8/10 people said they thought it would retail for $99 (our target is $49:)).

We had a few very promising meetings with distributors and retailers.

THE BAD: We thought we would save time and money by going to China before we were finished with the final design — Because SNAP Ring is so small, our two CMs could not execute our desired aesthetic — we hired a team locally to finish the design and now we’re back on track.

THE UGLY: Aw, comon! Our prototype is not that ugly! LOL but I’ll tell you what – wearing a working prototype and getting all that juicy feedback (just watch the video already) has made me HUNGRIER THAN EVER  to see SNAP Ring available to customers!!!
