Update #12

Boards are here!

7 comments

Dear Backers,

The circuit boards have arrived, and we wanted to share our excitement with you right away. Here are some pictures of what will be coming to you soon.

We’re collecting addresses and information using Google forms rather than Kickstarter surveys because it’s easier to customize the survey and keep track of responses using Google. Sorry if that’s caused any confusion!

On a lighter note, we celebrated the start of our spring break by putting some power into Powerade. 

Notice how the streamers follow the surface of the object they're striking, even slipping under the ring at the base of the bottle cap. This interesting phenomenon is known as surface tracking.

      @Stefan Gustavson What hack do you mean my old Lappy has a COM Port?
      I think it comes with an USB to MIDI adapter?

      Soon I will be able to put some juice in my juice, too. Time to shop for a MIDI-out port for my computer! (I used to have an old hack for the serial port, but it requires, well, a serial port, and I no longer have one.)
