November 19th Update
Dear OpenBCI backers and pre-order customers,
As expected, we are beginning to ship 32bit kits this week. Many 8bit kits went out last week and the 8bit kits that have not been shipped are continuing to go out this week.
Unfortunately, we discovered an issue with the daisy module in our verification process. The good news is, it’s fixable and we’re putting all of our available resources into making the fix this week. We sincerely apologize for the delay. We expect to have the issue resolved in the coming days and to begin shipping kits with the daisy module prior to Thanksgiving. For more information on the daisy issue that we have encountered, please refer to the following google doc.
Regarding OpenBCI software, the latest version of the GUI is up on our Github. It can be downloaded and run via Processing. Additionally, we will be uploading downloadable apps (for Windows, Mac, and Linux) in the coming days. The MAC OS X .app is already up. These apps can be downloaded from the Downloads page of our website, and will enable you to run the OpenBCI GUI as a standalone application, without having to install Processing and the required libraries. Currently, the GUI works with the 8bit and 32bit boards and can also be used with PLAYBACK files and synthetically generated data. As soon as we fix the daisy module, we will ensure that the GUI works with the 16-channel configuration of the hardware and update the downloadable applications accordingly.
Additionally, we recently created a new interface for our getting started materials and tutorials (docs.openbci.com). Currently we are migrating our previous getting started guides to this server, and we will continue to populate it with content over the coming weeks, as we have more time to put towards getting you up to speed with to use your OpenBCI! Feel free to fork our /docs github repository and add your own guides. Send us a pull request and your guides will be added to the docs page of our website!
If you have any questions about shipping or other matters, please contact us via firstname.lastname@example.org. We’ll do our best to get back to you in a timely manner, but please forgive any delays in response. We are very busy working to resolve the issue with the daisy module and get new getting started material available for you to work with.
Once again, thank you for your patience. We know it’s been a long wait. We’re very close to exiting the fulfillment process and entering into a phase of teaching and support.
All the best,
The OpenBCI Team
