A big THANK YOU to all the backers! Thank you for helping to make NODE a reality.

I will be working hard in the coming months to deliver all the rewards for your pledges.

I will be updating the progress on kickstarter.

      Tavares, my current pricing strategy is $25 discount for each additional Kore unit with maximum of three. So if you want one additional Kore on top of your existing pledge, you can add $150. If you want two additional Kore units, you can add $275.

      w00t! Congrats, and I echo the question on getting the flash drive tool and other modules. Also, how much would we up the pledges to get an additional Kore? I'm currently doing the 350, but having an additional Kore would be useful for my build.

      steve, yes but not on kickstarter. There are still significant uncertainty on the laser distance sensor. I can't predict when it will be done. The IR transceiver will come soon without any technical difficulties but there is a lot of work to be done to get NODE done so there isn't a definitive date on that yet.

      Congrats again, and I echo the above question! :)

      Congrats George! Do you think there will be possibilities of getting the laser distance and infrared tranceiver modules when they are done?

      Also, is there a way we can get the flashdrive and keychain tool by adding some $ to the pledge we have?

      thanks, and super excited about this product!
