Thank You all! Some reminders.
First of all, thank you all, we are on the home stretch for this Kickstarter campaign and we are excited to dedicate all our energy toward the production and shipping of the Digisparks! The support we have seen has been truly amazing!
Paying for Extras
You will not be able to order and extras, shields, cases etc once this Kickstarter ends so get your extras now!
Any extras you have added must be paid for by Sunday Sept 9th at 9PM PDT. Increasing your pledge to the amount calculated by the personal backer page is the only way to pay for extras, shields, etc.
You cannot pay for these items separately and selection and payment for extras will close when this project funds on Sept 9th at 9PM PDT.
We will be sending out final reminders via kickstarter message (to check for one go to the envelope icon in the top right corner of any kickstarter page when you are logged in) over the next 48 hours.
International Shipping Reminder
If you are located outside of the USA please ensure that you have added the proper amount to your pledge to cover shipping:
Reward levels $205 and under:
Canada: Add $5 (so the $28 reward requires a pledge of $33).
Anywhere else (except the USA): Add $10 (so the $28 reward requires a pledge of $38)
Reward levels over $205:
Canada: Add $10 (so the $500 reward requires a pledge of $510).
Anywhere else (except the USA): Add $20 (so the $500 reward requires a pledge of $520)
This amount must be included in your pledge by 9PM PDT on Sept 9th and cannot be paid separately.
We won't be doing any more formal stretch goals - we're just out of time to put them together - but we will keep thinking of how to give extra thanks to our backers, at the very least we're thinking of running a few more sticker designs and including them with all rewards.
In case you missed it this will be the main sticker design, included with all rewards:
also - in case you missed it - here is what will be engraved on some of the case panels:
We are working on some collaboration with other kickstarter projects and we wanted to let you know about them:
SmartThings - we are talking with the SmartThings guys about making a shield for their modules, this would allow a Digispark to talk to the SmartThings cloud!
Multiplo - we are talking with the Multiplo guys about making the Digispark work with both their programming environment as well as their robotic kits - think miniature robots!
When this campaign ends - the work has just begun here at Digistump. Next week we will post an update to show you a prototype with the final board design for the Kickstarter Special Edition Digisparks, as well as the final prototypes of all the shields.
Production will begin on the 25,000 Digisparks needed.
We'll work on kitting all the parts for shields, writing tutorials for the Digispark and the shields, putting up a wiki, collaborating with other projects, etc.
We'll keep you updated of all the happenings, so watch for updates!
