Hi all, this is ClickClack!

Over the past few months, we have been collecting feedback and working with Vertex Studio to finalize the design for Angle (International version/R2) and now we are very excited to announce that Angle is ready for the Group Buy! Most importantly, we would like to thank everyone for the continuous support, which made this project possible! Your feedback and suggestions have played a very important role in the final design and lots of changes have been made accordingly. Also, credit to S7even from Vertex for taking all these wonderful product photos of R2 prototypes.
