We did it! And all thanks to you, our lovely backers!!

Now, on the back-end, we've entered full-throttle "let's get this lab started and get you your prizes" mode. Tito sent out surveys asking for your addresses and the like this afternoon. Please fill those out so we can send you goodies.

Expect to hear from us soon with updates on the lease and the Kickstarter backer party, among other important events.

To whet your appetites, check out today's article published in the San Jose Mercury News. http://www.mercurynews.com/ci_16158406... If you're in San Jose, pick up a copy!

Thank you again - So Much - for helping us get to this point. Much love to you all! Believe me, I'm hugging you in my mind. ;)
