Some Exciting Updates

Dear Backers,

We have a few pieces of great news for you today:

1) A new version of our C API is now available on github. Among many other improvements, this version adds support for multiple devices and the ability to read raw force images. We have also released an Arduino API which enables direct communication to a Sensel Morph using the cable provided with the innovator's kit. If you are planning to develop with either of these APIs, you must first update to the latest version of the firmware using the Sensel app, which is available on our web site.

2) We have received 500 new PCBs in house. They have passed our initial inspection and we are very confident that they are defect free. We are assembling a small batch of these into devices next week to verify that the issue we saw previously has been corrected, at which point we will turn our assembly line back on and start churning out more Morphs, which we expect to be better than ever!

3) Last, but certainly not least, we're happy to tell you that we shipped 155 Morphs from our fulfillment center this week! We're very excited to get this batch of devices out to you. If your unit was included in this batch, you should have received an email from FedEx containing tracking information. If you didn't receive an email, don't worry, your shipment will be included in one of the following batches which will be shipping throughout May. When you receive your Morph, remember to download the Sensel app to update firmware and configure overlays. If you have any questions come up as you start using your Morph, we encourage you to check out the User Guide or contact support@sensel.com.

Morphs leaving the fulfillment center on their way to their new owners!

Thank you once again for your ongoing patience and support and have a wonderful weekend!

All our best,

The Sensel Team

      The API with support for multiple devices is very good news! Looking forward to some experiments...

      Thanks for keeping us in the loop, but frankly, progress on this project is like watching paint dry. I really think you should seriously consider offering the crowdfund backers free shipping to compensate for the delays, considering how long you have had our money!
