Shipping status: 61% shipped
At this point, all of our rewards have been manufactured, and 3,393 packages have gone out, which means that 61% of Kickstarter backers have rewards en route or have already received them!
We've started getting pictures and messages of unboxings around the world; please keep sharing your experience as your Cores come online!
The rest of the rewards are currently at Seeed Studio and will be shipped out over the next week and a half; Seeed is expecting to finish shipping to the last backers on December 18. This is unfortunately longer than we were expecting, but is again the result of the complexity of our order and the number of variations that we had. In the meantime, Seeed has truly gone above and beyond ensuring that everything gets out during the very busy holiday season; packages have been sent through Singapore Post, Swiss Post, Royal Mail, Australia Line, SF Express, USPS, and more as Cores are delivered to 61 countries and all 50 states.

Feedback welcome and encouraged!
Don't forget as you're getting started with the Spark Core to share your experience with us! We want to hear what you love and what you hate, what you didn't understand and what features you'd like us to add. Your feedback is crucial, and every person who hits a snag during set-up can help us make sure that no one else runs into the same issues by improving our software and our documentation.
Thanks a million,
Zach and the Spark team
