Hey there Infento enthusiast! 07:00 AM, Friday. Four members of Team Infento got into their car and drove to the airport to catch a plane to Frankfurt, Germany. Were these early birds going to catch a sandwich with a famous Frankfurter Würstchen? Nope. Visiting the Frankfurter Buchmesse...

Hey, let's get ready for some viral vibes!

 

Dear Infento aficionado,
 
Infento went viral on the internet. We went what? Viral! We call something viral when it is quickly and widely spread by for instance Facebook, Twitter or YouTube. This is the mysterious and marvellous effect the internet can have.

As of yet our video was viewed more than 14,000,000 (!) times. Yes that's fourteen million. In this newsletter you can read all about it. We even beat Coca-Cola and Aldi with their product videos.

This is the menu of today:

  • How Infento became a huge hit on the internet
  • Top 5 viral product videos
  • Infento now belongs in the top 1% of Youtube


Grab a comfy seat and read all about our viral adventures.

Snow outside? Great!

It looks like winter is finally rearing its head around the world.

The winter storm that socked the Southeast of the US now has moved up to the East Coast. The National Weather Service predicts the storm could drop a foot of snow in Boston, two feet on the Massachusetts coast and seven inches in New York.

And heavy snow fall and below-freezing temperatures continued to sweep across the European continent this weekend. Several Greek islands, otherwise known for their sunny and warm weather, were blanketed in snow with freezing temperatures. The chill didn't spare sunny Rome. The fountains in St. Peter's Square froze overnight and dripped icicles instead.

Now there are two things we can do. We can agonize over the fact that the cold is grounding airplanes, crippling ferries and making the roads slippery but isn't it much better to embrace the winter and have some fun in the snow?!

You guessed it, we took the last advice. We loaded our car with Infento glides last week and drove to Winterberg in Germany to do a photo and video shoot. Check out the pics below to get an impression!

Hi there, Infento supporter!

1,500 new Infento Kits

Patience is bitter, but its fruit is sweet (thus spoke a wise guy called Aristotle). And now 1,500 early birds can eat this sweet Infento fruit. After our Kickstarter campaign ended we immediately put our website infentorides.com live. If you press the pre-order button on our site and fill in the form, you automatically get a place on our waiting list. Do we actually do something with this list? Yes, we do! We follow its sequence dutifully. Number by number.

We have a huge demand for our kits and right now we can't keep up with production. That's why we work with a waiting list. We just completed the production of 1,500 kits and the first 1,500 people that signed up for a pre-order now get the chance to buy a kit.  At this very moment, 750 of these kits are on their journey to the US. The other 750 are destined for Europe. We apologize to the rest of the world. Because of large transportation costs and hefty import duties we decided to focus on the US and EU first. So, if you are one of those early ones and you live in the US or EU, keep a close watch on your mail.

Hey, it's us again! 

This update about the development of our electric motor (e-drive) begins with Augustus, founder of the Roman Empire and its first Emperor, ruling from 27 BC until his death in AD 14. His maternal great-uncle Julius Caesar was assassinated in 44 BC, and Augustus was named in Caesar's will as his adopted son and heir.

The Roman historian Suetonius tells that Augustus strongly disapproved of rashness in a military commander, and, accordingly, his favourite saying was Festina Lente. These Latin words can be translated as "make haste slowly".
