On January 26th, four years after our first public release, we'll be placing the Collectivus project on an indefinite hiatus. While we continue to love the idea of physical and virtual objects traveling the world, the market fit is a moving target as location services continue to evolve and mature and we’ve never been able to overcome the resource constraints needed to become the product we’d like it to be.
We call it a hiatus because we know exactly where we would like to go next with the project. While currently the timing isn’t right, who knows what the future will bring.
Our ducks have visited Australia to Dubai, Canada to the UK, and coast to coast in the US from New York to San Francisco. We’d like to thank everyone who supported and contributed to Collectivus over the past four years and made our Thingies a part of their lives.
In the meantime, we’re spinning up our newest project which is a lot less digital and lot more physical. We’re helping to build and create culture around soccer with Supporters Union. Like all of our endeavors, it’s more of a passion project than a start-up business; we’d love to have you be a part of it and see where it goes.
Thanks for all the fish (and ducks and cupcakes and monkeys and all of the other Thingies).
Happy New Year!
