SeeNote

The always on, digital sticky note

Hey Everyone! The team and I have been looking forward to this day for some time now. There are a lot of things being connected to the internet, some more useful than others. Tweeting toasters, fridges that take pictures of your food. With SeeNote, we wanted to make something that was truly helpful, day in and day out. Something to solve daily problems: ~ Leaving home without an umbrella ~ Forgetting lunch in the fridge ~ Darting out the door only to sit in delays at the platform or in the car ~ Missing an important note because it’s buried in notifications ~ Fumbling with a smartphone for access to smart home controls We found ourselves already using traditional sticky notes to solve some of these problems. Invented nearly 40 years ago, the sticky note is a proven tool. With SeeNote, we feel we've taken the utility of that tool a step further, by making it digital and dynamic. We hope you love it as much as we do!

Preorders, biggest buzzkill EVER

@sandrojazzar Sandro, it is kind of a buzzkill! I wish we were ready to ship right away, too. We're a small team, but I know we'll we'll get there :)

@sandrojazzar Argh, I thought the same thing when I saw Spring 2017. I remember as a kid I read about the game Dark Forces in a magazine, and then later that day we were at Costco and IT WAS THERE. Would love more "Surprise, it's out!" but these companies need buzz to get going.

@sandrojazzar feels the same when I see it leads to a crowd sourcing page. I'd go to Kickstarter if I wanted to back something.

@bleistern It's just that I was ready to whip out my CC! Now you'll either have to remarket me when you launch or miss an opportunity! I don't rlly like to order something and wait, especially when it's a cool product! 😝 U should take it as a compliment! 😁 And giving out my email for updates isn't ideal either :( but I promise to keep an eye out for when u ship ;)

@sandrojazzar Ya, I would probably pull the trigger if there was an impulse. Perhaps in the future

@_birdwell @sandrojazzar I think the restriction they might've had is Kickstarter makes you have a working prototype. The video looks like its cgi?

@jorge_bestard hey Jorge! to be clear, we were never restricted from Kickstarter. We have a working prototype, but it isn't quite as camera ready as we would like. After meeting with Kickstarter and discussing the platform as part of our total strategy, the team and I felt driving direct traffic to our own site could work just as well, with the right PR. And, without giving up a chunk of our revenue to Kickstarter. No way to tell if that was the right strategy yet, haha. But very excited! More photos of our prototype coming soon but some earlier ones are already on Instagram, where you can see our story going back to some early meetings and Sunday work sessions. (Edit, to provide more information: screens are simulated, but reflect the functionality of our dev prototype)

@sandrojazzar I agree. Would love to buy it now, but would never commit to preordering tech a year in advance. It's just too likely that a bigger player will hit market first.

I love this, I just want it NOW! Guess I'll just have to settle it with my current usage of sticky notes... 🙃

@as_austin if we had a national ad campaign, I'd find some way to work this in. 😂

@as_austin I didn't think anyone else did this but me. 👌
Austin Sandmeyer@as_austin · Thinker/Student/Rockstar
@bleistern YES! 🙌😂

@as_austin I feel like the only reason you posted a comment was to be able to post a video. It was worth it.

Neat. Too bad it's a year out.
