      Did anybody get this? I never got a tracking number. I DM'd the creator and still haven't received anything.

      Any news on the Tetris microcard ? I pre-ordered one but no news for more than 8 months

    4. Jessie Gabuna

      Thanks @Scott Allen!

      @Jessie Gabuna, The Arduboy's processor and internal circuitry runs directly off the battery, which will be from about 3.2V to 4.2V depending on the charge level.

    6. Jessie Gabuna

      Does anyone know if Arduboy runs on 3v or 5v?

      I haven't received my Arduboy.
      Please, contact with me.

      Just letting you know best thing to do is a direct message if you have any issues regarding your pledge! Everyone waiting on a response should have one!

      Hi all, it's not letting me send a direct message, but wanted to let you know that I haven't received mine yet.
      I am in Singapore though, so perhaps it is just a timing issue.

    28. Kevin Bates 2-time creator on

      We've responded to everyone in the comments here, but please if you have a problem please direct message us! We want everyone to get their Arduboy(s)!

      I have not received a tracking number. In addition to that, I moved since submitting the survey, so there is potential for my unit to have been returned to sender if it would have arrived by now.

      Hi, I gave not received my tracking number or unit, thank you

    33. Kevin Bates 2-time creator on

      Please direct message if you need help with your shipments. And to any other backers reading the comments about people missing their shipments, we are working with them to get it resolved... some backers even have had deliveries since posting but never come back to let us know. Yes, we are having some challenges in closing this Kickstarter out, but the most important thing to understand is we are committed to getting you your Arduboy(s)! Help us help you but messaging us directly!

    34. Brendan Quinn on

      HI update would be appreciated on delivery thanks

    35. Kevin Bates 2-time creator on

      Preparing an update right now. We have finished shipping, if you haven't got your tracking number or it hasn't arrived please let us know by messaging us. It seems like most customers in Germany and Canada have had some problem with customs, and we are working on resolving that. It's been tough making sure several thousand packages arrive as intended, but we are committed to getting you your Arduboy. Please let us know. If you have commented on here, we will message you as well.

    36. Dominick Vanacore on

      Did not get mine as of yet

    37. Dennis Paßmann on

      Didn't get my arduboy too,yet :(

      Backer 6,267 here, I backed for a gold arduboy and have not received it. Just wondering what's up? I think a general update would be appreciated! Hope everything is going well!

      Danny Kimball on

      I too am yet to receive my order. Are the customs taking way longer than expected?

    42. Rob Meyers on

      Never received mine and I'm in the US.

    43. Jeff Weiss on

      Still waiting on mine in Canada, seems to be an issue with Customs I think.

      Please respond to my comment 2 weeks ago:

      I received my white Arduboy some weeks ago here in Germany. And now I ask myself when the golden one will arrive. Is it normal that they are shipped separately?

      I had complained last week that I hadn't heard anything.
      Kevin responded and gave me accurate all arrived yesterday.
      Thanks for taking care of it.

      My shipping package seems to be returned back to the sender. No replies from the Arduboy team at all. Really disappointed :(
