The Campaign is Almost Over!

This is your last chance to order Somu with a discount, before it goes up to $35 USD.

Silicone Cases

Since we’re pretty close to $50k, we went ahead and ordered the cases to include the red+black tie-dye option.
And I visited our silicone factory last week! Here are some photos.

The molds are for Solo cases. Here is a video I took of the silicone getting mixed with some additives to make it stronger. This is also how color gets mixed in. A swirl is created by mixing red and black separately, and then partially mixing them together.

Just recently, the mold for Somu was completed.


We’ve been working towards OpenPGP functionality for all Solos/Somus. Our partner, Oleg, has been testing it with GnuPGP already! We still need to fix a few bugs and port the functionality to Solo/Somu. You’ll hear back from us when it’s time to update :)
