August update: shipping the second batch
It’s been a long time since our last update, but in this case no news means good news. So far, we have sent about 200 of 240 Dato DUO’s to Kickstarter backers. The parts for the next have arrived and we’re shipping DUO’s again!
We realize it’s a while since we sent out our backer surveys. If you haven’t received your DUO yet and have moved, please send us a message and we’ll make sure it gets sent to the right address. If you haven't completed your Backer Survey yet, please do so. We hope to be able to send all Kickstarter Dato DUO’s within the next few weeks.
Some of you have already been playing with the DUO and sharing it on social media. It’s great to see your videos of playing DUO with the kids, or even composing an entire song with just the sounds from a DUO!

With two making of videos here a link to the first one:

In other news: we’re proud to have three Dato DUO’s at Edinburgh’s FuturePlay Festival from the 3rd until the 26th of August. Sadly we will not be there ourselves but love to see how it turned out. For more information please go to their website.
