Kickstarter Flyte - First backer Delivery
Matt, a maker from Amsterdam was the first backer who pushed the green button during our launch on April 21st . As a thank you, we phoned Matt and told him we'll be arriving at his front door with a small surprise.
It is in our company culture to take inspirational trips to places where we work isolated from a fast-paced life. Our last trip was in Bali planning and developing new prototypes. Here is a sneak peek into our journey!
