2/3rds of kits have been shipped! App available March 17.
I'm happy to say that we've shipped almost 300 kits at this point, thanks to Bots Alive's Brendan McKenna and his persistence getting to this point.
Almost all of our unshipped units are for people who need to fill out the backer survey with their shipping address. If you haven't filled out the survey to provide your shipping address, please find the Kickstarter survey in your email or log into Kickstarter.com, where you should see a banner at the top asking you to fill it out. (Brendan's roommates are being very generous in letting us store 150 boxes in their garage, but [read in Smokey the Bear voice] only you can give them their garage back!)
Even though the autonomy-granting app isn't available yet, the Hexbug Spiders are fun remote-control toys on their own. The Bots Alive kit won't use their remote controls, but you might consider getting some early entertainment with them now.
That's all! We appreciate everybody's support and willingness to endure this delay.
Brad and the Bots Alive team
