Digispark is a Kickstarter project that ends Sept. 10th. On August 24th they had reached $168,332 (of $5000 goal). It’s a great platform. People have been asking how it stacks up against ExtraCore. Digispark is a very complementary product to ExtraCore. Both are entries in “small, inexpensive Arduino Compatible.” But they live in different niches. [...]
I’m trying to transition from full time work “for the man” to full time Kickstarting and looking for my next Kickstarter project. I currently have several ideas. With two successful open source Kickstarter projects under my belt I am ready to tackle another challenge. Here are some of the ideas I have. What do you [...]
I spent all day Saturday July 7th working on the enclosure design. I’m quite pleased with how it turned out. Here is a video of my hobby laser cutting one of the prototypes.
The Robotic Minion Starter Kit is funded on Kickstarter. Now that funding is done there are a few more tasks to go. Get surveys out to all backers Get final numbers on who actually pays (takes about a week) Run some tests on the final prototype and make sure it’s 100% Send the manifest and [...]
David and I have been working on the enclosure story for the Robotic Minion Starter Kit for a while now. We have a solid plan for doing enclosures, but it’s not very sexy. We have been trying to figure out if a custom cut enclosure is viable. It turns out getting time on a laser [...]
I was checking the search engines for mentions of our project when I came across Kicktraq. If you click the link you can see they predict the project will fund. I think they are right, but if you like the project or are already a backer you can help make sure by sharing the Kickstarter [...]
http://bit.ly/rminion is the Kickstarter project. We launched it right before Maker Faire and it’s going great. The Instructable is coming along well too and should be up as soon as we can double check it.
David and I got the video for the Kickstarter project finished. The Kickstarter project is submitted and awaiting approval.
I got the board and the parts for prototype #4. Everything is now officially working correctly! There will be at least one more round of boards as I shift the size for whatever enclosure we pick. Click photos for closeups. These photos will form the core of the Instructable I will be posting on how [...]
