This project was successfully funded on January 31, 2012.
We're funded! And with a few days to spare -- thanks to ALL of our great backers!!!
We promised a report on our progress with the Xtion 3D sensor, for you advanced backers who want to seriously kit out your robot: see our latest blog post for info and a video. We'll make sure we have an Xtion mounting bracket option ready to go in our online store, before we ship robots to our backers in a few weeks, so those who are interested can have a chance to add it and save on a separate shipping charge.
