After a long hard road, many long nights, and far too many dead computers, we are finally shipping out robots! This is a process that is ramping up, so it may take some time to get your order out. We've sent a few manually, but are working on automating the process to make it easier for us and you. All the packages will be sent with USPS tracking and we should be able to auto-generate an email to you with this. These details are still being worked out so please bear with us, it's our first time shipping 1000 of something!

We did have some last minute snafus that delayed us longer than we thought. It turned out to be very difficult (for a lot of frustrating, confusing, boring reasons not worth explaining here) to load the bootloaders onto our chips. This is basically the code that will allow us to put our own custom code on Dash's microchips. After a lot of investigation, computers crashing, and imcompatibility problems, we finally found a solution, using Apple's OS X to program one chip and Windows 7 to program another chip, both on the same set of electronics. Whatever works I guess.
Windows + OSX = 1 Dashboard!
We're looking forward to sending these things out in much greater quantities, which should start this week. Thanks for all your support so far, and thanks for reading!
