You know a product has had a few production roadblocks when a company sprinkles phrases like "today it's actually happening" into a shipping announcement. It's not like the Narrative Clip (Memoto) is the first Kickstarter project to miss a goal or two, of course, but according to the product's crowdfunding page, early backers were supposed to start receiving their units in April of this year. When we saw the thing at SXSW in March for the first time, it was pretty clear the company still had a ways to go. Now in early December, believers will finally get their wearables, just in time for the holidays.

According to the company, the delays were caused by issues with printed circuit boards, camera modules and certain colors of plastic -- so, just about everything involved. Issues still persist, however, meaning that cameras ordered on or after November 1st won't start shipping until January -- and hey, what better way to start the new year than with a little lifecasting?
