Wow! Thanks everyone, for making my day!
I was up late working on CAD last night (see below), and trying to figure out how to keep TJ*s momentum going. Then, the KickStarter newsletter came out, and we went from 60% funded to 200% in about an hour! TJ* and I are really floored by the outpouring of support, and we can't wait to hear all of your cool ideas for expanding him!
Here's a picture of Hipster TJ* - he feels really cool now that he's a funded project!
I'd love to hear the ideas you guys have for expanding TJ*! What are you planning to do with yours?
