821 Ototos Later + Maker Faire NY!

Posted by Dentaku (Creator)

Hi Kickstarters!

Over the last few month and a half we've been busy getting your rewards ready. Each Ototo was packed into our London studio, from programming Ototos, folding the 6 separate parts of the box, wrapping cables, packing into postage boxes, labelling to carrying sacks to the post office... phew!

Most of you should have received your rewards already, we loved seeing the photos and videos of Ototo appearing across the world. We started to collect ones we found at, keep us updated with what you're doing on Twitter (@dentakuldn), Facebook or by using the hashtag #ototo.

If you haven't received your Ototo yet - sorry about that, sometimes things can get delayed at customs or missing in the post. Shortly you will receive an email with a link to a form. If you could fill in your details on this form we can investigate further.

Stamping the Ototo boxes

World Maker Faire New York

We're super excited to let you know that we'll be taking Ototo to Maker Faire New York this weekend. Naomi and Mark will be travelling over from London, we'd love to meet any backers that will be there! We're part of the Kickstarter Pavilion - come check us out.

What's next?

We're continuing to sell Ototo via our webshop, and over the next few months we will looking at ways of making Ototo better through software updates, how-to guides and videos and showcase projects made with Ototo. We've already had some comments on the Kickstarter page about an Ototo forum for you to share builds and ideas - let us know if you are interested or have any other ideas.

And finally a BIG thank you for turning Ototo in a reality, we hope you are enjoying your rewards!
