Holy Ship! Alpha Ships Have C.H.I.P.ped!!!
THAT'S RIGHT...ALPHA C.H.I.P.s HAVE SHIPPED!!!
Our Kernel Hacker Backers, our brave StarC.H.I.P. Troopers, should see their Alpha C.H.I.P.s arrive in 7-9 days. Keep your eyes on those mailboxes! These things are coming in hot!
ALL KHBs WILL RECEIVE A SECOND ALPHA C.H.I.P.!
This is a great opportunity for a shipping dress rehearsal as we test our shipping integration. There will be two different Alpha C.H.I.P. shipments. The first shipment of Alpha C.H.I.P.s will be shipped unflashed to get our Kernel Hackers hacking immediately. Don't worry, we have plenty of documentation to get you started.
The second shipment of Alpha C.H.I.P.s (estimated to arrive by mid-October) will be factory flashed with our buildroot image.
Alex, Wynter, and our friend Peter have worked diligently to give everyone a clean and simple C.H.I.P. experience out of the box. Get started with the C.H.I.P. Flashing Tutorial!
If you are a Kernel Hacker Backer, and have not yet confirmed your address, get on it! Shoot us your shipping address at chip.backerkit.com and we’ll shoot your Alpha C.H.I.P.s right back!

Shipping Alpha C.H.I.P.s in September is a huge milestone for us. Just as Dave screamed in the Kickstarter video, we are so excited to see what you can do with a 9 dollar computer! Get Hacking! And don't forget to write!
