Update #9

All shipped!

This is a big day! All ~1400 units have been shipped. I just walked the last 65 down to the Post Office a few moments ago. Everyone should either have a tracking email (check your spam folders) or the actual device. 

Our shipping software crashed a couple days ago, and we had to go through the database by hand picking out which packages had shipped and which hadn't for the final couple hundred. That means a handful of you may have been swallowed by the computer problems. If you haven't received a tracking email, send an email to info@theprotagonist.co with your name and address and the subject "Tracking." It'll take us a couple days, but we'll either come back to you with your tracking number or a package on the way. Please make very sure you don't have the tracking email in your inbox, because if even only 1/3rd of you don't see it and email me, and it takes me just 1 minute to track down your package and respond, it would be 8 hours of emailing to get back to all of you. 

Also, international backers: please note that the USPS doesn't necessarily track packages once they have left the US (it's country specific). So your last tracking entry may be "USPS sort facility."

Once you have your Mr.Ghost

Have fun with it! Join the forum at http://mrghost.freeforums.net/ to share files and stories with other backers. Also, please check the forum at http://mrghost.freeforums.net/ if you have technical difficulties. There's a technical support discussion there with steps you can follow.

So what next?

There is still a lot to do. I adapted the software for iPhone5 yesterday so the gray bar at the bottom doesn't appear, it will be submitted to the app store shortly. I need to add the spectrum analyzer to the app because we hit the stretch goal. There have been a few requests to either include a fine-adjust knob to the sensitivity slider, or reduce its effect overall, making it easier to adjust. I'd like to include that. I will also be working on an Android version of the app in the future for all of you hopefuls that got the device and don't have an iOS device. I'll keep you posted on all these updates. 

Best,

Aaron

      @Mielie Good to hear it made it! That is quite the trip. I'm surprised Mr.Ghost didn't send me post cards on the way.

      Great i have finally received my MR.Ghost here is South Africa. Things tend to move a bit slower here. Thanks Aaron.

      @Steve They are being a bit rough on these during shipping. That will not affect performance, but I'm happy to replace your unit if you want. Let me know at info@theprotagonist.co

      Mine arrived with the plastic casing broken about 3.5cm from the tip so I can see the copper wire inside. I pushed it back together and put a peice of tape on it. Will this affect the performance?

      Mine arrived in the mail today. I never saw a tracking number for it, but don't really care. Thanks for the prompt delivery of this.

      Thank you for being so conscientious. I received mine a week ago and finally played with it during the weekend. I have discovered some functions just by tapping around on the iPad screen. Are there more directions? I want to make sure I have figured out all the different bells and whistles. My TV set certainly gives off a lot of EMF.

      Congratulations! Looking forward to receiving mine.

      Got mine a few days ago. Works perfectly, although mine is a little bent, which I'm guessing has to do with the cooling issues? All good, it works which what matters.

      Great stuff Aaron. I'll be checking the mail box every day or so (or the tracker) now. :)

    Custom EMF detector with a 50 foot solid core wire antenna. Probably only marginally more sensitive, and extremely impractical. I just wanted a higher reward than $25.

    Estimated delivery:
    Add $30 USD to ship outside the US
