Dear backers,

We have some exciting news:  We've just completed our initial 500 unit build!  This means that the devices are still on track to begin shipping at the end of this month throughout the beginning of March.   

Even more exciting news, we've passed FCC testing.  We now comply with FCC part 15B an CE Low Voltage Directive’s EMC requirements.  Some of the testing we did includes Emissions, Immunity, and ESD.  We've also secured the PCBs for the Innovator's Kit.  This adapter allows Morphs to communicate via serial to external embedded devices like Arduinos, take a look!

We also wanted to share our latest challenge with you.  Recently we were at a Hackathon and noticed that some of the USBs that we'd planned to ship with the Morphs were having connectivity issues.  We're happy to have caught this issue early, the team sprang into action and ordered higher-quality cords to make sure you have the best possible functionality with your Morph.

We want to thank all of you for your ongoing patience and support.  Without you, our dream to build these devices would never have become a reality.  We can't wait to get the Morph in your hands! 

All the best,

The Sensel team

      Shipping at the end of the month means I should be getting a shipment notice today, right?
