You did it!
The MicroView will be a reality because of you! With your support we’ve been able to hit our funding goal in less than 24 hours and the MicroView is going full steam ahead.
Now for some updates:
Because of your rapid support we’ve gone and ordered 40 more sample enclosures that we’ll use to demo the MicroView at various Maker Faires.
We have received the first three of these 40 units (see below).
These sample enclosures are made using a technique that uses a silicon resin mold instead of a steel injection mold. This silicon mold can handle roughly “40 shots” before it starts to degrade (hence the 40 units).
For mass production we will use a steel mold, because the MicroView has a very glossy finish we need to use a mold with very hard steel, the creation of the mold will take many weeks and it forms the bulk of our timeline.
Open Source Files
The MicroView is Open Source Hardware, this means that we’re making the design files for our enclosure, printed circuit board, bill of materials and software libraries open free to download and use.
As we’ve promised you early access, you can download a snapshot of our files here: http://bit.ly/1g73lXm
We will eventually be putting the files up on Github after the Kickstarter funding period is over.
Thank you again!
We are truly humbled by the support and trust you have given us.
Marcus (and the Geek Ammo team).
