Has any progress been made with the carbon fiber?



  • I figured I'd try something that might lead to some relatively positive conversation while waiting for my shipping email :) I was absolutely enthralled by the carbon fiber design and much like many others I was disappointed to hear of the complications involved.


  • NFC Ring Team

    I have tried some of my proposals but to no avail so far, we're still working on it tho :)



  • Well, it's been almost a year since anyone posted...any news..??
    What about us users that are still waiting...??


  • NFC Ring Team

    Yep, some progress made. Basically it was impossible to make that ring so we're making another ring that will have CF. We still don't have a final prototype though, fingers crossed we should have something to show sooner rather than later tho! :-)



  • Excellent, this was the exact question I came here to find out about, before sending in another support request email for it.

    It's great to hear that you and the team are still working on this, John. I do think I'm justified in asking for a bit more information around your timeline for this than simply "sooner rather than later" which, given I and other original Kickstarter backers pledged for this ring in July 2013 (almost 2 years ago), could be viewed as a little dismissive though I know this isn't your style.

    Your last update to the remaining Kickstarters was over 6 months ago, so perhaps an opportunity to re-engage with that audience with a progress update and possible options for proceeding/finalising?

    Many thanks!

    @McLear-Ltd-NFC-Ring-Staffers will be making an update soon @CJbravo

    RE more info on timeline, Q3 is when something substantial will land. An announcement will be made within 6 weeks.

    I have focused all of my time/efforts on R&D and @McLear-Ltd-NFC-Ring-Staffers now leads on strategy so it's up to him if he wants to disclose more at this point!



  • Still no news about the carbon-ring?



  • There is some news, but we're just trying to get all our ducks in a row before announcing anything. As you can imagine, it's going to be a big thing for us to handle and we want to make sure everything is spot on before we make any announcements. We've worked hard on this problem over the last year and gone through numerous materials, samples, remaking sample, tests, etc. It's been a long slog.

    TL:DR - We have a viable solution and will make relevant announcements as soon as we can. Sit tight!



  • Excellent, was just thinking of contacting you about this!

    Might be useful for a link on the front page for updates relating to the carbon fiber rings?


  • NFC Ring Team

    Hey, yeah I'm happy to say we're nearly good to go with an announcement on this. We're scheduled to make an announcement on the ~28th of August and we're going to be posting a thread in the next few days to get community feedback before we make the announcement :)



  • I take it this was the announcement.. https://forum.nfcring.com/topic/633/carbon-fiber-vouchers-kickstarter-update

    Will there be vouchers issued for those of us who ordered a SB through nfcring.com?

    Just been chatting about this now. We are going to be emailing you and all store purchases of SB directly @Mike -- Just so happens Stuart asked me about this as we had a ticket in Zendesk requiring an answer.

    TLDR is we will be making you an awesome offer :) You guys have been super patient and we should have checked in with you all before sending out the update.. FWIW there is only 10 outstanding so we're going to deal directly with each of you today...

    Cheers! J



  • I haven't seen anything in my inbox yet, @johnyma22.


  • NFC Ring Team

    @Mike That makes sense, nothing will go out until ~Oct 5th at the earliest.



  • @johnyma22 ok, thanks for the reply.
