Status Update

Hello everyone,

I just wanted to give you all an update on the status MAKI. Last week I resubmitted the MAKI project to Kickstarter and I am just waiting for the feedback from staff. I am very excited about the new options which have been added to this project, such as both full and partial kits as well as a very limited run of fully assembled robots. At this time I am not sure when the staff at Kickstarter will approved the new project page or what they will do with the old one, but I will try to keep you updated. If this page is removed and replaced with a new one, you can get status updates on Facebook at or on Twitter at Thanks for supporting this project. I look forward to working with many of you to expand MAKI's capabilities as well as launching more robotic platforms in the near future.

Best regards,

Tim Payne
