Darkmatter was a HIT at the world's biggest Maker Faire - Bay Area 2013

Posted by Techjango (Creator)

We demo'd Darkmatter to thousands of people at the Bay Area Maker Faire in San Mateo. Here's a short video we put together, and some pictures too! Everyone we spoke to was very positive about the project and complimented us on the look and feel of the laptop.

And can you recognize the fab looking gentleman in the gray T-shirt? Why, yes. That IS the famous Ben Heck! Hero to all console modders. He seemed quite pleased with Darkmatter :-)

Darkmatter project backers, here's some great news! We've been looking at the specs and capabilities of the new Xbox ONE console that was announced by Microsoft just a couple of days ago. We think we can adapt the Darkmatter laptop chassis to house the Xbox ONE motherboard too! So we're going to ask all our backers at the $499 level (complete kit) if they want the system with Xbox ONE compatibility, or the original Xbox 360 laptop kit. If you select the Xbox ONE option it will likely take us a bit more time to deliver your reward, based on Microsoft's general availability and ship dates on the Xbox ONE. We hope this alleviates future proofing concerns that the community expressed. So please help us spread the word and let's get this project funded! We can't wait to get your Darkmatter laptops shipped out to you.
