Once more August meant it was time for Holoseat’s annual pilgrimage to SyndCon. This year we brought a little more than just our usual upgraded test hardware and presentations. For the first time since 2014 we brought something for the annual charity raffle. For those of you who are not familiar with the SyndCon charity raffle, it is a convention-long event covering everything from video games to collectibles to gaming hardware. The proceeds go to a great cause, a chapter of the Boys and Girls Club. The culmination of SyndCon is the hour plus raffle drawing with the entire convention gathered round eagerly waiting to hear their names called. It really is a sight to behold.
Back in 2014, we brought one of the very first revisions along with us and tossed it into the raffle. Lots of people thought it was awesome, but it was very much a prototype. Still, as Syndicate president Sean Stalzer says, this was the beginning of a great relationship for Holoseat.
We have really enjoyed being a part of the Holoseat evolution. In its earliest form, when it resembled parts from Radio Shack cobbled together, you could see its potential. Today, as it undergoes its alpha test, it is looking and feeling more like a consumer grade product. We are excited to see it emerge from alpha and make its way to the market and hope to see them back at SyndCon 2019. ~ Sean Stalzer, Syndicate Founder and President
With the launch of the Alpha we felt it was time to get a version back in the raffle. Two Deskcycles, our preferred and at this time only certified exercise equipment, were put into the raffle along with a Holoseat alpha kit for each. We are very happy to report two members snatched up the Holoseats early on in the raffle. Even better, both winners have chosen to join our Alpha test!
