We have both happy and sad news for you today. The sad news first. We have another snag in our manufacturing pipeline. We have had to find another source for one of the critical components to the Cubit Controller and Multiplexer, a Zener Diode. One of our suppliers backed out at the last moment, gave our money back, and will not be able to deliver the component. We have, however, found a new source for the 9000 diodes that we require, but there is a 3-4 week lead time for delivery.
What does this mean for shipping out Cubit Kits? The new shipping estimate for Cubit Kits is estimated for late April to early May. It is quite disappointing for us to have pushed back the shipping date so far from our original timeline, but we are resolved to fight through any setbacks and get Cubit out the door.
For happy news, we have moved to a new larger office in Oakland, CA. We have also brought on board our 7th team member, Denise Suto. Denise is an experienced teacher and STEAM educator. She is helping us develop Cubit lessons and tutorials as well as doing marketing and outreach. Denise is a great addition to the team and has already contributed greatly to refining Cubit for release.
Creating and developing Cubit has been an amazing journey. Even with some delays and setbacks along the way, we are determined to get Cubit into our backers hands. We are anxious to see all the incredible creations that our ingenious backers will make. Please reach out to us if you have any questions or concerns.
Happy Friday and have a great weekend,
The Cubit Team
