A quick clarification on the first kits
First off: thanks to the new batch of backers! We're picking up steam, and should be able to break 33% funded by the end of this week. Let your friends, family, and coworkers know that this project is out there: we need their support to make this thing happen!
And, on to real news: I, an engineer, didn't explain something well enough. Shocking, simply shocking. I neglected to mention that, as a first-kit-recipient pledger, your muralizer experience will be easier than everyone else's: you're not going to have to solder anything!
CS writes in asking: "What would be needed to get the pledge-level kits working?" Good question, CS. Answer: not much! The first batches of Muralizers come fully soldered, assembled, and ready to plug-and-play. You just need to install some software, plug it in, and you're good to print.
As an added bonus, the first ten Muralizers will have serial numbers, all lovingly hand-applied by yours truly. If you want, I'll even sign it, but I refuse to make them out to "eBay."
Thanks again to the new supporters, and please drop me a line with any questions you have. I've got another question from you all, suggesting a somewhat immodest use of Muralizer, which I'll be revealing (and answering) soon...

Funding Unsuccessful This project reached the deadline without achieving its funding goal on November 24, 2009.
Oct 23, 2009 - Nov 24, 2009
Pledge $1 or more
For any pledge $2^1-1 ($1) or more (ie: any pledge), your name will go on the list of "People who made this possible" at muralizer.com.
Pledge $15 or more
10 backers Limited (40 of 50 left)
For $2^4-1 ($15), you can get a muralizer "sketch" via snail mail! This is one of the test images, probably with glitches. If you're lucky, it'll have doodles about physics around the errant lines.
Pledge $63 or more
0 backers Limited (50 of 50 left)
For $2^6-1 ($63), you can get your very own vector graphics file printed out on 2'x3' paper, then mailed to you. It might not be totally perfect, but I'll do my best to make it work out.
Pledge $255 or more
For $2^8-1, you'll get one of the first beta muralizer proto-kits. These might not be the final kits, but they'll be close. They also come with beta firmware: you'll be an integral part of making muralizer awesome, and get early access to the platform for your art.
Pledge $383 or more
For $2^8+2^7-1 ($383), you can pre-order the final kit, and be among the first to get your grubby paws on a printer that goes to 11 (feet).
Pledge $511 or more
0 backers Limited (5 of 5 left)
For $2^9-1, I will personally assemble a muralizer and send you the finished product early. It's like the beta program and the finished product thing, all wrapped up in one package. One fully-tested, known-good, line-drawing package.
Pledge $1,023 or more
0 backers Limited (1 of 1 left)
For $2^10-1, you put me under the needle. I'll have an artist permanently ink an entry from the geometric art series that inspired muralizer on my forearm. It's a nine-gon, listen to the podcasts for details, which would be a great way to cap off this project. If someone kicks in this money, I'll get that tattoo, and send the video of it happening (and me saying thanks) to the sponsor.
