Have a question?
@Barend I'll look into that. I've sent you an email in response to your emailed query. :)
Still haven't received? South Africa
Finally I got Mine!!! I am really Happy to start using analogzero.
Got mine a few weeks ago. Finally had a few hours to put it together. (I am a beginner to the pi add-on kits and haven’t soldered for over a decade.)
This is a great kit. The parts are all high quality. And the instructions are excellent. he goes above and beyond to provide step by step instructions - including soldering everything together. So good, I now wish I had gone for one of his more comprehensive kits.
Got mine yesterday, opened it after a busy day
Checked my package if what I got is complete
my experimenter's kit is complete, but my Analog Zero is kind of missing an 8-way header
the stretch goal made a relief though since the 2 of 3 4-way header can make up for it
@Creator Have just tested everythng - no problems. Thanks again for a really neat product.
Hi there, here the Netherlands backer 350, got it today
Thanks for the quick response. I had it in my mailbox this evening.
So I have a nice job to do now.
@Albert the £9 regular Analog Zero went out on Friday 17th June
Hi. I have not seen any product here in Holland. I am backer number 733. When was it send?
I received my two kits a couple of days ago. Looks good! I hope to utilize them soon. Thanks!
Hi Alex, received my weather kit today. Many thanks.
@Alex, i received the secnd experimenter's kit today, thanks for the smooth solution. :)
mvg Rudolf, Belgium.
Hi Andy. Sorry about the squashed legs. Actually I placed them all in foam myself. So this must be the German delivery workers "playing football" with the packages. I've noticed since my first KS that Germany has an unusually high proportion of shipping damage compared with other countries. Maybe it's down to their processes and not their people? I have no idea.
That said, however, this is the first and only instance of this issue so far in nearly 1000 packages. So it's thus far an acceptable failure rate. If there is a problem, and you need us to, we will replace parts as needed. :)
My twin pack arrived in Germany this morning - thanks for such a fast and smooth service!
On small point, the IC had very badly bent legs despite being mounted on a foam block. I haven't had time to test it yet, but I think it will be OK. It might be something to check though if you received the part already pressed into the foam.
Thanks again for showing thet Kickstarter doesn't have to be a long and painful birth of a project!
@Joachim Awesome. Enjoy using your analog zeros :)
Received my experimenter's kit + extra board today in Sweden. A pleasure as always. Looking forward to whatever comes next! :)
@Portable Creator. Yes don't worry yours will be on its way to you very soon :)
aww, that's fine, very close to delivery month already.. :D
@Portable Creator. No. Sorry. :( I never offer international tracked shipping on my KS projects because it's overwhelmingly expensive. It adds about £10 (which is more than the basic pledge) AND every single item (909 backers) has additional paper-work that can only be done manually. It's really only worth doing for high-value items.
But, I did just publish a shipping update.
is there a way to track shipment of my kit?.. (kind of excited :D)
Awesome, just received my kit, fastest kickstarter ever to be delivered!
@Rudolf - sorry about that. I missed your comment or forget to put a note in your record. We'll get the second set out to you on Monday.
@Alex I received 1 Analog Zero and 1 experimenter's kit , i expected 2 of each.
backer #205, see comment 3.

I received mine today :)
Thanks, Alex :D
Wonderful job running a Kickstarter campaign :)
This was one of the best (if not THE best) Kickstarter experiences ever for me. Great communication. Received my early bird reward at the end of last week - a month and a half ahead of the promised deadline. Impressive!
got mine last week in Austria. every part seems to be in there, looking forward to some soldering now :)
@Pascal Excellent. Enjoy tinkering with it.
Received mine yesterday morning (Saturday) in Bordeaux, FR.
Every parts in, stretch goals included.
It went through the Euro2016 mess, that's already a success!
Thanks You so much Alex.
@karl @andy Thank you :) I don't know if the next one will be a record-breaker.
Received today. Cant wait to try it out.
Even more adaptable :-D I will watch out for your next record breaking ks. Looking forward to your excellent manuals for this and pro hat experiment pack
@karl Not a change of design, just an optional tweak. If you wanted to make a really low profile version you could use surface mount caps, ditch the chip socket etc. and make it really quite a bit sleeker :)
Got mine in sunny Cornwall all items included. Noticed two pads on reverse with surface mounts for caps was this a change of design?
@Roger, @Chris, @Neil & @Jamie Thank you all for your kind words. I hope you enjoy the Analog Zero :)
Got mine in Basingstoke - absolutely top notch delivery and communication, Alex :D
Also arrived safely in Southampton UK today - all complete nothing missing. Will build later. Thanks Alex :-)
Arrived safely today (UK). Many thanks and look forward to getting it up and running later this week. Another excellent Kickstarter - I have backed all your projects and am very happy with all. Thank you.
Got mine today, good work Alex, wish some other of my backed campaigns came anywhere near your excellent run ones. :)
@Andy Thank you :)
Nice to experience a really well-run campaign. Keep up the good work!
@JanW Thanks for your kind words. I'm aiming to get this one out the door quickly because it's a fairly simple project. And yes, I do like the idea of breaking a few records :) But most important is that people get...
a) a nice product that is useful to them
b) a good overall experience
I hope I'm getting a bit better each time I do a project. I try to be as open as I can be about things. I have learnt to share even bad news quickly because "the backers can cope with it" and they might have some useful input.
"The experience of sharing product development with it's ups and downs is kind of baked into the system (as long as creators communicate, that is)."
From your lips other creators' ears! This project is really exemplary in speed, transparency, information provided about what goes on behind the scenes... This is my 22nd Kickstarter project backed, all of them did the post-funding "What's going to happen next"-update, and I don't remember seeing one as as limpid as yours.
This, plus the speed of the fulfillment! First wave of rewards shipped at J+1 after funding ends!!??? If that is not a speed record for technology projects, I'd be mightily surprised. I'm absolutely blown away!
@C Griggs Thank you. It's all good food for thought. People enjoy KickStarter though. The experience of sharing product development with it's ups and downs is kind of baked into the system (as long as creators communicate, that is). So there's more to it than just sales. But I will be doing KS and non-KS products as time goes by. Still just getting established really. Conincidentally - just noticed your name on a Pro Hat address label going out in today's shipment :)
Got the email, made my pledge, paid my money, completed my survey. Only now have I actually had the time to look and see what the project is, looks good.
I'm sure you could do away with the campaign and all the pictures and just post 'something new, get it now before it's gone' and still hit all targets such is your reputation now.
Long may you continue.
@Sikander noted both portsplus and ruler. Thank you
@Joachim - Sorry I didn't get back to you in time. I see you made a decision anyway. Noted. :)
@Anthony - Thank you :)
@Alastair - aiming to get going as soon as we can, but we have to wait at least a week to see which pledges get dropped.
@Jamie - haven't you got it yet? (jk) Hopefully you won't have to wait long :)
On this kinda timescale my RasPiO Analog Zero should be arriving in my mailbox about ... now :D
Funded and surveyed in just 7 days. Awesome.
