Lumapad shipping is complete!
It has been a long process with lots of hard work but I am happy to report that all Lumapad backer rewards have been assembled, tested, boxed and are at some point in the shipping process. Remember, just because it is boxed, doesn't mean it will be at your door tomorrow. Each order was heavy and shipped insured, via US Postal Service. It is each backer's responsibility to keep their eyes out for their own packages. I have no control over shipping times, especially with international packages. In some parts of the world, it could take a few weeks for the package to arrive.
I have learned a great deal about the Kickstarter community during this larger project and I would like to take the time to personally thank those of you that were supportive and understanding during this long process. It is because of you that this project was successful.
It is with great pleasure that I can also report that this project began shipping on time, as originally estimated starting July 17th. It "only" took us a month and a half to fill more than two hundred orders. Each of these shipments was large, heavy and time consuming to build. With more than 200 shipments, it would have been impossible to fulfill all orders in a few days. I am very impressed that we did it in a matter of a few weeks!
When you receive your Lumapads, make sure to visit the Lumapad website and the "design files" tab for more information about using your Lumapad. Many backers have already started writing code and customizing their LED panels in their own ways.
My work is now done on Lumapad. I suggest that the community starts working together and keeping us all posted on any interesting developments.
Kickstarter projects are a fun way for me to invent interesting and unique products. I will be releasing my next project soon. I hope you will all join me again on my next Kickstarter adventure!
