We Did It! What next?

Posted by Sean Hodgins (Creator)

Hey Backers,

We're Funded, Its Over!

Also, these arrived, I'm a little ahead of schedule I hope you don't mind!

Over the next two weeks Kickstarter will confirm all of the transactions went through, and then send me the money for the Kickstarter.  

Whats next for you? During this two week period I will be sending out surveys through Kickstarter that you will need to complete in order for me to send you your ESP Everywhere. The survey will ask specific things like if you purchased a protective back, the extra board add-on etc. It essential you fill out the survey or I will not be able to send you your ESP Everywhere.

I will then confirm that you pledged the correct amount. In the instance where the pledge amounts were not correct, I will contact you and we can figure out how to correct it to make sure you get all the parts you want/need. 

I will then order all of the Components from Digikey, waiting on a Shipment of ESP8266s, and get assembling on video.

If you want behind the scenes updates on whats happening, be sure to follow me on Twitter and Instagram:

and don't forget to subscribe to my YouTube and hit the notifications bell so you know when my video is released on the ESP Everywhere!

Thanks to everyone! You made this possible!

      @Chris Arnesen: don't get me wrong, I've got a lot of boards to build! Haha but yeah, no foreseeable problems, everything should go smooth. The ESP modules will probably be the last electronic thing to show up, before I can assemble, but I'm expecting them this/next week.

      Also I need to wait for the surveys to determine how many people got the protective back, so those take about two weeks once I order them. Even then, were right on track!

      Looks great! I've had one other KS that was ready to ship once the funds were released, so it sounds like you might be close to being #2. :-)
