Hi,

We have just passed the £45,000 stretch goal!

The MicroSlice's design will be altered to add Start, Pause, and Abort buttons at the front. Extra switches will be included with all pledges over £149. You'll be able to pause, reset, and stop & start jobs on the MicroSlice without having to touch a computer! 

More Stretch Goals are coming next week.  

....Will It Engrave?

One question I was asked that hadn't occurred to me was about chocolate, and whether or not the MicroSlice would engrave it. Not being one to shy away from reasons to buy chocolate I thought I'd give it a go.

I think that's a yes, it will engrave chocolate. I can eat it now right?

More .....Will It Engrave tests in future updates!

Thank you all for your support and pledges.

      Ooooh. That's nice. I bet you had to buy plenty of chocolate for testing.

      Cool chocolate and really like the added buttons feature.
