Update: No news
I've just realised that our last update to you was in December... Which I admit is a very long gap between updates. So, since this is the year's first update via Kickstarter: Happy new year!
The main reason why we haven't posted any updates, is that there hasn't really been much that has been worth updating on; Production is frustratingly slow, and is being held back mostly by the LCD displays that had to be especially made for the Triggertrap, and the casings. The casings are due at our factory this month, but the LCD displays don't arrive until mid-March, which means that our current estimated shipping date remains 'April'.
In the meantime, we have been keeping the Triggertrap site updated with various news and tidbits. Some highlights:
- The Triggertrap Shield is ready to go into production, and we're hoping to get started on that early next week. Since the LCDs are what's holding back the shields as well, I we believe this will also be ready in April.
- I did a quick timelapse of me assembling a Triggertrap Shield, along with the full set of assembly instructions.
- The Triggertrap User Manual is further updated.
Sorry there isn't much exciting news to bring, but we're slogging away to bring you your Triggertraps - and we're as excited as you are to finally get to play with the final version!
