The first prototypes will be VivoKey employees only, then the private beta will launch… then after the private beta we will expand to production for public sale.
Hmm, sounds like we could be waiting a while then I guess. Also sorry for the tidal wave of questions but is there any clear details e.g weight, dimensions, read/write distances, processing speeds and what not. Thank you for all the hard work you guys are putting into these projects as well!
Once we get chips in, things will click by pretty fast… but at the moment it’s been a long painful waiting process… for everyone
Saw that there was a beta sign up, any word on when that’ll be happening? Sorry to pester if I am!
It was announced here:
Too bad. I’m not on Facebook…
we also sent emails to the subscription list, but many hit spam filters.
So do we have a slightly better picture on timeline for this now?
Beta users should be getting pre-order notifications in the next few weeks. Manufacturing of beta units will commence soon after.
How about now, Whats the scope & Timeline of the VivoKey project? Have beta testers received units/ are beta trials still commencing? @amal maybe its time for an update?
On another note, is there a way to sign up for the Vivokey forums? or is it limited to beta testers for now.
Beta users are the only ones allowed on the forum at the moment. Beta units are going through final tweaks and we will be manufacturing soon. Public purchase of the Flex One is likely a go for Christmas, but nothing official yet. Thanks for your patience!!
Ofcourse! If you ever need another Beta Tester, I’d be more than be happy! Any estimate for the retail cost of the VivoKey units? Thanks
Not at this time… coming soon though.
This looks awesome!
Can I give you my money now??
Are you still hopeful that the public will have access around Christmas?
Am I way after to sign up for the vivokey-list? Linked https://forum.vivokey.com/t/flex-one-pre-order
Sadly, we hit snags that will push things well into January… but we’re still moving forward.
Sorry to say that the beta program is full… and it wouldn’t help speed things up for you if we did put you in the beta group… these snags are affecting availability for the beta group as well.
Is it out? Digiwell just listed the item as “in stock”.
I need to clear up some confusion… Digiwell has listed some incorrect information about the Spark.
VivoKey has two products… one product everyone knows about - the VivoKey Flex One… Java Card platform etc. It is a large flat flexible implant.
The other is a 2mm glass injectable we are calling the Spark. It does not support Java Card. It is an ISO15693 NFC type 5 tag that supports AES128 encryption, and works with our VivoKey platform which will be launching very soon. Everything about the Spark is meant to be plug and play. You do not program it with anything, the keys are set and locked as is the NDEF data. You can still use it for UID applications with 3rd party hardware (like the gunbox for example) but those applications are not the focus of VivoKey and while you’re welcome to use your spark with those 3rd party products, we are not supporting those scenarios.
We are doing a soft launch for VivoKey over the weekend, but we will have the Spark on the DT website within the next 24 - 48 hours. If you are in Germany, or neighboring country check out Digiwell and if you are in the UK, or neighboring country check out KSEC Solutions.
