Hello OpenBCI Backers,

We are excited to announce that we will begin shipping next Monday, Nov. 10th!

All T-Shirts, patches, and rewards that include 8bit OpenBCI boards will begin shipping promptly on the morning of Nov. 10th, and we anticipate rewards with 32bit boards to begin shipping within the following week.

To save time in the overall process of preparing the hardware we split the flashing into two phases—the 8bit hardware and the 32bit hardware. We initiated the flashing process of the 8bit hardware first; thus, those boards will be ready to ship it first. We are now beginning the process of flashing the 32bit hardware, and expect to be done in the coming week. We’ll keep you informed on how the process of flashing the 32bit hardware unfolds, and let you know when it will officially begin shipping as soon as we can.

In midst of the craziness of kitting and fulfillment, we managed to sneak out to the Air Force Research Laboratory in Dayton, Ohio for the Air Force’s first-ever Hackathon called LabHack. Other companies at the hackathon included: Plotly, MongoDB, Github, and Amazon.

While we were there we showed some curious high school students their brain activity with OpenBCI. In addition, we hacked the OpenBCI system to process up to 4 different people’s EEG at the same time. Then we demonstrated the ability of OpenBCI to have multiple people’s brain activity control a single robot! Chip (of EEG Hacker) was there with us leading the way, and he did an awesome writeup of the hack!

We’ll be in touch in the coming 1-2 weeks to confirm that everything is underway as expected.

Thanks again, for everything.

All the best,

The OpenBCI Team
