      How is delivery to supporters going?

    2. Jones on

      I havent received any mails from digistump - not in my spam or inbox. I had the payment confirmation and thats it.

    3. William

      They sent the emails out to the email address specified in your kickstarter survey (the one that asked your address).
      The emails were from:
      The subject was:
      ACTION REQUIRED: Please confirm your Digispark "Kickstarter rewards" order.

      Check your spam folders if needed.

    4. William

      They resent the link emails out to everyone, even the ones (like me) who had already added all the extras and submitted them prior to the end of the kickstarter.

      I pledged extra for a case kit ($10.00) and three RGB shield kits, but never found a way to enter that info.

      I did pledge for extras... in fact doubled my initial pledge! Never got the link to specify my extras and they are a lot !

      Would you kindly also send the link to me? I did not receive it, either. Thanks! SM
      Mostly I'd like the motor kit and to add anything that would help motors run.
      Please, keep me in the loop for RFID, Too!

    8. Peter Rosemann on

      Please, resend the email with the link for extra's.

    9. William

      They send you a link in email for your personal extras page shortly after you pledge, you add what you want to that, and then up your pledge by the amount it tells you.

      How do I add extras?

      I'm having problems with the shield order page - I've uped my pledge to cover international shipping and a selection of shields but the amount the personal backers page displays seems to be different to what I've added. How do I start this shield order again/reset it?

    13. Erik Kettenburg 6-time creator on

      @Jim All shield kits are kits - they come with all components unassembled - apart from the motor shield, basic soldering skills are all that is required.

      Sorry if I missed this somewhere, but does the I2C Port Expander Shield come with all of the components already mounted? Thanks.

    15. Erik Kettenburg 6-time creator on

      @Pushpa - go to your kickstarter inbox (the envelope icon in the top right corner of this page) and look for the message from us with your personal backer link - that will allow you to add extras like cases, then you'll need to come back here and up your pledge to pay for them - the personal backer page will calculate the total for you.

      @Adam - sorry it is a package deal because we are ordering them as sets and the LCD is soldered to the I2C module - without the LCD it would only be $3-$4 cheaper, so you're getting an LCD real cheap.

    16. Adam Smith on

      Any way we could get the I2C LCD Shield Kit with out the LCD?

      How do I order the case you have added?

      We're planning to make relay and wireless compatible - but we'll have a full table up in the next few days (sent out as an update) showing which shields are compatible with which.

    19. Brett Martin on

      Can you stack a relay shield with a wireless shield to essentially create a tiny wireless AC switch for lamps etc?

    20. Erik Kettenburg 6-time creator on

      @ Dennis - nope all through hole

      Dennis Schweer on

      @Erik: Does the Charlieplexed Shield require SMT soldering?

    22. Heri Sim

      Yes to the Wireless inventors shield!!! The same one from Kickstarter!

    23. Erik Kettenburg 6-time creator on

      I2C i/o expander has been designed and will be added shortly.

      ISP shield: this would be very easy to build on a protoshield - we'll also release board files for shields so anyone can make a shield and have it made cheap by a PCB pool.

      Matt on

      what about a ISP shield? would make for an extremely affordable programer.

    25. C. Scott Ananian on

      I recommend the DRV8833PWP motor driver. Only 4 pins to drive, two of them PWM.

    26. Mark Brown - Becca Howe on

      I vote for I/O expansion! 3 pins for 8 is a definite no-brainer for a tiny board like this!

    27. Missing avatar

      Mark Bottomley on

      Hi, I think it would be useful to have some I/O expansion shields. An output shield could be made with a 74LS594 or equivalent the would require 3 pins to give 8 outputs. An input shield could be made with a 74LS165 or equivalent requiring 3 pins to give 8 inputs. Just a thought!

      Can we please not get so carried away with the complexity of shields.
      After providing stacking 3 shields on top of a tiny board using a tiny CPU the cost size and whole idea gets bloated.

      Does the Charlieplex Shield require SMT soldering?

    30. John Mars on

      Erik, what size LEDs are on the Charlieplex shield, and will you be offering a PCB-only option?

    31. brentil on

      When you add a new item to the list can you put the date added next to the title of the item so when I come back I know which are all the new design types when I look at this post.

      Regarding the remove USB connector, would it be possible to have some soldering points left on the board to reprogram the chip afterwards ? That's would be great to keep things upgradable.

      Can't update my pledge at Amazon this morning:

      "Invalid Request
      We cannot process your payment request because of an error. Please contact the website where you initiated this payment.
      Caller Input Exception: Caller does not have a FPS Caller Account"

      If broken, please fix. I want to pledge more!

    34. Nicholas Clayton on

      RFID and Wifi would BOTH be awesome.

    35. John Neal on

      Yup, I'd love an RFID reader too.

      I don't know if you're specifically taking votes on the shields that are up for consideration, but microSD and RFID would be fantastic!!

    37. Shane Cobalt on

      RFID Reader and MicroSD!!! Relay would be awesome too. So much good home automation...

      RFID reader and shield, please!!! Great job!

    39. Benji Greig on

      I'm casting my vote for the I2C LCD 16x2 shield too. That'd be good to setup.

      RFID reader! I'm chipped! This would be awesome!

      Id like to put in my vote for Single relay shield. Easy home automation.

      Tyler Furtado on

      I'm casting my vote for the I2C LCD 16x2 shield, RFID anything (NFC compatible please), and Micro SD shield. Also, a little OLED display would be really awesome. Something along the lines of this 96x16 OLED display with I2C.

      Franck Bettinger on

      When you say IR, does it mean the IR receiver or is it an IR distance sensor (distance sensor would be great) ?

    44. Erik Kettenburg 6-time creator on

      @Franck - that's a great idea, we'll work one up after we finalize shield designs - realistically a few weeks out, but most certainly we'll shoot for compatibility where it makes the most sense such as IR + motor driver

    45. Missing avatar

      Franck Bettinger on

      If you manage to decrease the number of pins of the motor shield, and IR distance shield or ultrasound shield could be useful too.

    46. Missing avatar

      Franck Bettinger on

      What are the different shields compatibility ?
      That would be really nice to have a table stating which shield can be used with other shields.
      For instance, if you manage to decrease the number of pins of the motor shield, I want to be able to use the IR shield with it (therefore having a IR controlled moving robot). Other combination like RF reader and SD card might be really interesting.

      I want SD and RFID
