Everyone who has backed this project so far has my deepest gratitude for believing in me and the Open Source model.
However, with just three days to go and less than five percent raised toward my goal, barring a miracle, it looks like this project will expire as a failure. Financially, anyway. I've learned a lot along the way, and made a lot of headway in refining my original idea and the invention that came out of it.
So, Plan B.
My next step will be to try to build and sell the PressurePen myself, built in small quantities by hand, based on an updated prototype design. I'd also love to sell the stylus as a kit, for those with soldering skills to put together their own (and maybe make some improvements to my design).
In the meantime, I'll be finalizing the circuits, shell and PCB design with the great folks at Gamil and releasing them to Thingiverse and elsewhere as Open Source.
Keep an eye on the PressurePen Facebook page for future plans and updates.
And thanks, again, for your support.
