We are happy to announce that MakerBeam is now available in Europe! Visit http://www.makerbeam.eu/ to purchase starter kits.
We remain in stock at SparkFun, for North American distribution (with international shipping as an option): http://www.sparkfun.com/products/10540
We are concentrating all our efforts at the present time on remaining in stock and growing our inventory.
A word about our web presence: Glenn Powers left the project two months ago, to deepen his practice of Buddhist meditation. Attempts to get the site running starting from zero expertise have been unsatisfactory failures. We've finally given up and are hiring someone.
We're setting a deadline of the end of August for getting the standard together, both in Web and downloadable form. That's the two year anniversary of launching this project; it's been a long road transforming this from an idea into a business with actual revenue and sales outlets. We're looking forward to the next step; to our backers and friends, we cannot thank you enough for the enthusiasm and support.
