      We started shipping, yes, and we've been getting faster and faster every week. We've been working to resolve some challenges with international shipping and external sensors. We are overdue for an update - I'll post one by tomorrow. -John

      Marvin, we're still working on shipping all of them, and it will take another 6 weeks or so. You'll get an email when your Twine is in the mail.

      We're still plugging away at shipping. Check the comments on the main page for a small update.

      It has been a month since the last update. Can you please let us know the status of sending these out?

      So they haven't all shipped yet?

      Just curious, who is the shipping partner. (Hopefully not the ones who wrecked OLPC shipments by mangling addresses back in 2007)

      It's messy to give a good estimate to each backer (because everything about mailing 4000 boxes is messy!), but 4-6 weeks at worst for most of you. The more sensors your package has, the longer it will take, since our production run hasn't finished yet.

      It would be great to know if it's on it's way.

      Dainius, you can change your shipping address by logging into spool.supermechanical.com.
      No need to worry! We have thousands of boxes to send out and we're getting up to speed with our shipping partner, so it's going to take a couple weeks to get to everyone.

      I'm assuming shipments are going out in chunks - I am in the USA but haven't received notification yet. Should I be worried?

      Creator Dainius Blynas on October 17, 2012

      My shipping address have changed. If you haven't shipped mine, I would like to change it. Thanks.

      Creator Supermechanical on October 8, 2012

      Depends on when you backed us and what you pledged for, but hopefully in the next several weeks. Keep an eye on spool.supermechanical.com for shipping updates for your Twine.

      When will the Twine parcel arrive to Germany?

    17. Dsc_4590.small

      Creator Supermechanical on October 2, 2012

      Thanks! The work never ends - we've got our hands full with ramping up production over the next several weeks as well as completing all the software features. The Spool website does not yet have shipping information, but we're working on that too. More in our next update. A friend of mine said "Starting a business means running out of hours in the day, every day," and that's the truth!

      Flávio, Campbell - we're still working on international shipping details. With tracking, it's more expensive than the international shipping fee, but I understand that lost packages can be more of a problem in some areas.

      Mike, no mic, but it will be easy to add one with the breakout board.

      Ubockinme, InCase. I just like the design and color.

      - John

      Does the title of the blog post ("Listen to your world, talk to the Internet") mean there's a microphone sensor? That actually sounds useful.

      Yah. Awesome. Great job guys.
      +1 though on some means of tracking international shipping. Are there any options? Don't want to have waited so long only to have it go west in the mail.

      Creator Flávio Oota on September 29, 2012

      super excited!!! have one question though. international shipping will be via priority mail right? I really need the package to be trackable. cause lately I've been losing a lot of things in the mail.
