Less than one week after launching its crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo, Eve Tech has successfully secured over $1 million from more than 1,900 backers for its crowd developed computer, Eve V. The Finland-based electronic company originally sought to raise $75,000 and quickly captured its funding target within a matter of hours.
As previously reported, Eve Tech revealed the debut of Eve V comes after it released of its Eve T1 tablet. The company’s team remained unsatisfied with most devices that are currently available and decided to open a community for those looking to create an “even better” product, and more than 1,000 users have collaborated online to develop the Eve V. The computer’s features are the following:
- 12 hours of real battery life
- 2736 x1824 IGZO LCD display
- Quad speakers & professional-grade dedicated audio amplifier by TI
- Thunderbolt 3, USB-C and 2 full-sized USB-A 3.0
- Latest 7th Gen Intel Core CPU
- Durable aluminum unibody
- Detachable laptop-grade keyboard with wireless mode
- No Bloatware, Windows 10 Home or Pro
In a recent update, the company announced it broke the European funding record on Indiegogo:
“When we started the campaign we received so many orders this campaign actually partially and temporarily broke the Indiegogo payments engine. What a way to break a record! We are still investigating with the very helpful folks of Indiegogo what happened!For the record (at a risk of sounding like a broken record, pun intended), the record we broke was fastest European campaign to reach 100K. Perhaps we could have even been the world’s fastest if it was not for the troubles with the payment system.”
Estimated arrival time for the Eve V is currently set for Aprl 2017; the campaign is set to close in mid-December.
