Breakout board guide and shipping update.

Posted by Supermechanical (Creator)

Hello backers,

New Breakout Guide

Time for a quick update.  First of all, we've put together a guide on how to use the breakout board to connect all sorts of things to Twine.  Check it out here:

Using the Twine Breakout Board

If you don't have a breakout yet, you're missing out---grab one at the link below:

International Shipping

We also been making some good progress on the international shipping front.  First, we fired our previous international shipping company, and moved all international shipping in house to keep a closer eye on it.  As of today all international Twine only packages have been shipped.  We have also shipped 80% of international Twine + magnetic switch packages, and the remaining 20% should be out tomorrow.  We are currently processing 150-200 international packages per day and are chewing through our ~600 package backlog rapidly.  Thank you for your patience as we plow through our remaining shipments.  

Have a problem?

If you think that your Twine should have arrived, but it hasn't---drop us a note.  Chances are that there was a problem with your shipping address, or some other small issue.  We'll try to get you fixed up right away.

Take care,

David, John, and the Twine team.

      I'm in Australia, and am oh-so-patiently awaiting my twine. It was supposed to be for a birthday present last year and it's almost the same person's birthday again, so I've got my fingers crossed that it won't be another IOU. It's been so long I've forgotten what sensors and things was meant to come with it. Have you got more accurate arrival dates than previously posted?

      Hi, I have still not received my twine at the $165 level to Israel. I sent you a message privately as well. Please update me. Thanks.

      Hi, my Twine hasn't arrived either, I'm in London UK.

    8. Robert Gattung on

      Sadly my Twine hasn't arrived in Germany as of yet. To make things worse the USPS tracking site states that the tracking events have been moved to the archive as they are too old now. One can recover them, but it looks as USPS thinks everything is in order while the parcel is now on its way for almost 8 weeks. :(
      Are there any hints on how long it should take?
      Thanks, Robert

      I just wonder what happened with my Twine? If I understand correctly, you should have shipped in early December?

      Is it possible to track somehow?

      Best regards

      Hi, this is Ben from Hong Kong. I would like to know if shipment is ready. By the way check out my peers' , which helps busy traders to track lots of shipments. I think they will help you a lot and make my Twine talk to me on the way to HK ~

    25. Sami Johannes Niemelä on

      Hey guys. Any idea when my Twine arrives to Finland? Friend of mine got his a few days ago, but I haven't heard anything regarding shipping. Would be a nice to for christmas holidays.

    28. Bradley Taylor Wilson on

      I've received my Twine. Haven't had time to even power up. Still, kudos to the team for pulling it off. I'm sure it redefined 'insane' for you and your comrades.

    29. Mauvis Ledford on

      Received my Twine and for once a KickStarter hardware project came out just as good as advertised. Cheers!

      Hi all, I had to go to and set up my home address. Somewhere along the way I suppose I missed letting them know? Either way, it looks like a large number of users need to go in there, login, and enter their addresses as well.
