Pixels Begin Shipping + Sneak Preview!

Hey guys,

The Pixels have arrived and begun shipping!

Shameless promotion!
Shameless promotion!

 

When yours ships, you'll receive a PM with a tracking number!

By the way, I had a bit of a scare when they started programming the boards and the screen was very dim!

Oh no!
Oh no!

 

Thankfully, after some testing it was discovered when assembling the boards a 100K resistor had been placed where a 10K should have been which caused the 13V boost regulator to output only 4.7V!

After replacing the incorrect resistors, and a slight delay, all was well again!

Phew!
Phew!

 

So, what's this about a sneak preview?

Well, I'd hoped to launch this after all the Pixels were in people's hands, but time waits for no man, so next week I'll be introducing the world to the Pixel Mini!

The Pixel Mini!
The Pixel Mini!

As you can see, The Pixel Mini is the smaller sibling of the Pixel. It's around 25% smaller and 40% cheaper, and it uses the same processor as the Tau!

The campaign for the Mini will run for only three weeks, but you should all have your Pixels in hand before it ends. I'm going to be stuffing as many of them in envelopes as I can tonight to get them in the mail tomorrow so at least those in the US will have them in hand by the time the campaign launches!

I'll post another update when the new campaign goes live, probably Tuesday or Wednesday at 9am EST! As with my other campaigns there will be early bird rewards, so don't miss out!

Elrico and Jason Forbes like this update.
