for the most part...

We had a party of sorts to pack everything up.  There was pizza, and pop music, and floaty keychains, and labels, and fresh t-shirts, and lots of envelopes, and, best of all, friends.

THANKS GUYS!!! Lookout for your deliveries in the next few days/weeks.  As always, drop us a line with any questions/concerns.

We're continuing to work with vendors, write code, integrate hardware, and design missions.  The Mk VI will be on the water soon.

    THANKS, AND HERE'S SOME TRUTH We’re after data, and we hope you’ll share our conviction that the world needs it. To this end, we will publish data accrued throughout the lifetime of any robotboats built with the support of the kickstarter community free for the world on our website.

    POSTCARD FROM THE EDGE. Backers at this level and all higher levels will be invited to submit a short phrase. We will choose our top five favorite phrases and put them up for a vote. We will then have Robotboat sail the phrase (see bottom of main section) and produce a postcard from the GPS trace. We will then mail the postcard to you so you can brag to your friends about how cool Robotboats are.
