It’s been just over a month since we successfully finished our Kickstarter campaign. Since then, the team has been busy moving into a new office space, printing and packing the Kickstarter rewards, and developing the new remote and other components for the boards.
New Office in Silicon Valley
After checking out over a dozen locations searching for the right space, we found it with our friends at Double Robotics in Sunnyvale, CA. This will be the headquarters for the design, prototyping, and production of your boards. We packed and moved all of our parts and tools from Techshop in San Jose, our home for last summer where our first prototypes were built. We’re still setting things up, but here are some pics of our new workspace.
Our new office
The electronics lab
Hot off the press! We just received our Boosted die-cut decals and t-shirts for our Kickstarter rewards. If you responded to the Kickstarter address surveys we sent, you should be receiving the rewards starting late November. If you did not send us your address please check for more information here.
Stickers, t-shirts, and thank you cards
The shirts have a custom “Original Backer Tee” print inside signifying you have a limited Kickstarter-only run of these shirts. We also will have t-shirts available for purchase on our website just in time for Christmas. Order them here.
Every week we’ve been tuning our motor controllers, mechanical design, and other components. It’s getting closer to the design renderings from Kickstarter. Here’s a working 3D printed model of the remote (the production one will look much nicer).
