Well, we certainly see the appeal of a branded Res controller, and agree that there is no model currently out there which is a 100% match for Resolume's workflow.
Having said that, we are also aware that making hardware is a completely different ballgame from making software. A prototype is very easily made. Most people forget that to provide a decent product with proper support, warranty repair channels, replacement logistics and everything that comes with it, is not so easy and costs a lot of money and time.
That's why we don't do it ourselves, and unless your last name is Akai or Korg we also won't officially lend the Resolume name to your project. If you purchase something with the name Resolume on it, we want you to have a good experience using that product, and have the best support possible when it fails on you. The chances of a 'kickstarter' company not being able to provide that are just too big.
Having said that, we love seeing these prototypes, and we encourage everyone to keep thinking, sketching and pushing things forward. Maybe one day!
