Well, I’ve had a bit of a rest, but I’m going to go crazy and make some more kits. I’ll do two flavours that will be ready before christmas:
- Fully assembled, tested machine, the same version as the one I’ve just been shipping. Just add a flat surface, a computer, pens and paper. £170 delivered to the UK, more elsewhere.
- Parts only. Including sprockets, motors, motorshield, gondola parts and bracket parts. Does not include arduino, cables, connectors, power supply. For the tinkerers amongst us who already have a stock of wires and microcontrollers, and don’t mind soldering and things. £80 delivered in the UK, more elsewhere.
- In the interests of transparency, I’ll let you know that I’m planning on something like a crowdfunding campaign to develop a machine with a custom PCB. This is likely to be around the same cost as the fully assembled machine above, but will have a more automated calibration, and most importantly, will be able to run standalone, retrieving it’s information from an SD card. This stuff will not be ready for months, so if you’re interested in something new, keep your eyes open for that in the next couple of weeks. It’s a complete guess, but I’d hope to be shipping this next gen machine in February or March 2012. Please get in touch if you’re interested in this.
I will be open for v1 kits for a couple of weeks, and get in touch with all the people who have contacted me about kits since closing to give them first dibs on this batch. A batch of 16 or 20 is about the best I can hope to do I think, so it’ll be closed when that get reached – when they’re gone they’re gone!
