Triggertrap source-code released on Github
Hey guys! One of the things we promised you as part of our Kickstarter campaign was that the Triggertrap would be an open-source project. So far, we've been tinkering away in the background, but here's a tidbit of news that will send your little geek hearts racing (well... We were excited, anyway): We're releasing the source code today!
We've just posted a blog post with a little bit more information on the Triggertrap site, but if you can't be doing with such distractions and you just want to get your hands dirty, get your Github on, and ask any questions you have on Get Satisfaction.
What about the shipping date of the Triggertraps?
There’s been an additional delay in the LCDs we’ve been waiting for for aaages, but as far as we know, that isn’t causing a change to our estimated shipping date for now - I'm doing a lot of shouting at suppliers in China to find out exactly what the delay is, and when we can expect to get it resolved, but for now, we're still working on the assumption that we'll start shipping both the Triggertraps and the Triggertrap Shield kits in April as planned – but of course, as always we’ll keep you posted.
PS: After the Triggertraps start shipping, there probably won't be any more updates from us via Kickstarter. Instead, we've created a mailing list for those of you who want to be kept up to speed: It even has a fancy sign-up form.
