Schematic and Blank Boards

Although I have posted this before, I wanted to make sure everybody is up to date on the progress of Soundlazer.

The schematic is finished and a few test boards have been ordered.  Once we test these boards and confirm they work, I will be posting the bill of materials and schematic on the website.  Backers who ordered blank boards will begin receiving them shortly after that.

Most of the parts have arrived and we are waiting for a few small items.

Assembled Kits should begin shipping by the beginning of August if all stays on schedule.  Complete units, with cases will ship after that.

      We only sold about 350 cases so it is a small run for the machine shops I use. To keep the quality high and make it easy to fill orders, we are sticking to the red color. Raw aluminum is conductive and could short out the boards so I will not be shipping unfinished parts to avoid issues down the line.

      I wouldn't mind mine un-anodized if it was the same price :)

      We will be sticking to the red case for the final production. They are being built right now and are on schedule.

      Richard -

      Very excited about the unit; I have an immediate use in mind already.

      I purchased one of the finished, assembled units and you had mentioned that other color choices might be available. I'm happy with red, but am curious if there will be, in fact, other choices.
