Dear Backers,

We've finished shipping out the last handful of kits! It's been an incredible journey and a wonderful learning experience. Thank you so much for all of your support along the way. We really appreciate your patience and the incredible energy we've seen from the community.

We've seen people do some really exciting stuff with Hexy:
