Lyra is also your personal computer. You can surf on the internet, send emails, watch movies or even learn about coding. Simply connect a mouse and keyboard to Lyra and enjoy your portable PC on the go!

Lyra is a great gadget for makers and tinkerers too. You can access Raspberry Pi CM3L through the exposed GPIO pads and create amazing projects! You can connect up to 8 sensors or electronic gadgets to Lyra and add new functionalities.

Risks and challenges

As Creoqode, Lyra is our fifth Kickstarter campaign. We are in the market for more than two years now and gained a valuable experience about manufacturing, packing, customer service and international shipping. We are already in touch with manufacturers for Lyra and arranged the production. Lyra can get into production straight after the funds are received. As the founder of Creoqode, I strongly believe that risks involved for on time delivery of Lyra will be extremely unlikely.

However, it would be fair to note that we will be shipping the product globally, and the taxation, customs duties and other regulations might be different across some countries which might cause some minor delays. However, Creoqode team has extensively researched global delivery of Lyra and partnered up with DHL in order to preempt any challenges we may face. Additionally, we have set the delivery date as December 2019 leaving us plenty of time to ensure on-time delivery.

Additionally, we will be putting all our effort to prepare detailed and easy to follow guidelines for hardware and software side of the product. However, after the delivery of Lyra, some users might still have questions regarding technical aspects of the product or might require assistance, which Creoqode help desk formed of 3 programmers and 2 electrical engineers will be able to answer immediately. We are all prepared for you to have an exciting and smooth experience with Lyra.
