Hey Kickstarter Community!
We wanted to share our recent coverage on Slashdot.org, and send out a Huge Thanks to Tim Lord for the interview, Robin Miller for the video, and everybody else down at Slashdot as well. Thanks Guys!
Also, we're looking forward to hosting a Horto domi Electronics Box Workshop this weekend in San Marcos. This will give those who are interested in the area an opportunity to get some hands on experience with electronics and wiring. We are really looking forward to helping a number of people get past those initial soldering inhibitions. Of course, we intend to film the event, and post the highlights as an update.
Like everyone else, we can't wait to have all the open documentation published online. We apologize for the delay. The Instructional DVD is well into the production phase, as well as the CAD documentation and Construction Card. All of which have far exceeded our expectations, and we hope this will ameliorate any discontent in their delayed release and distribution.
Hope you enjoy the Slashdot coverage, and we'll keep you up to date on any further developments or events. Thanks again,
Hey Kickstarter Community!
We’ve been wrangling on a number of fronts, and apologize for our delays in updating. All the pieces are fitting together nicely, just not in the order we’d assumed and hoped. Our Hardware production is moving much faster than out Media production (as media is neither of our specialties), so our Hardware pledges that were set to go out in November will actually be read
y to go out by September. However, our Media pledges, Construction Cards & DVDs, that were set for distribution in September actually won’t be available until November. Of course we apologize whole-heartedly for this. We have completed the entire filming process and are well into the production phase of the DVD. Thad Getterman, of Broken Sidewalk Farm, will be producing the DVD. Here is a link to a recent trailer and update video he produced for both the Kickstarter Community, as well as for an interview we had with Le Monda, France’s Newspaper of Record. We were honored by the coverage, and hope you find interest in it as well. Again, we apologize for the switch in pledge delivery months, and hope everyone understands, because like we said, all the pieces are coming together very nicely, and we are certain you will be pleased, even with the wait.
Thanks Again for All Your Support!!!
Hey all, this is Sam from OuterBabylon. The Horto Domi smart garden project is coming along well. This video is an update video that I made after creating the version three of the electronics box for our smart garden project. This version is much cleaner than the first two revisions of the electronics unit and will be the version that we publish in our video DVD and open documentation.
