Like bald eagles and beavers, the parts that hold your dice in place mate for life. Do not put the top onto the box until you are ready to lock your dice in place forever. Read the full update.

Good news! The dice, box, and bags are all currently in production and the last hardware item for us to wrap up is the assembly instruction sheet. Also, thanks to everyone who contributed to our survey for our logos. We finalized on these, using a die to dot the "i". Finally, we've been holding off on fixing platform-specific bugs in the web-based implementation while we get the iOS and Android implementations ready. We'll be re-engaging with beta testers as those apps come online. Check out the full update to learn more. Read the full update.
With the close of the campaign, we've sent orders out to manufacturing. We didn't encounter any hardware problems during the beta, so the only change to the hardware shared with beta testers is that our production dice will be less glossy to reduce glare while scanning. The most important remaining production issue to finalize is the instruction label to be attached to the lid of the box. Also, i've created a website that not only documents the API, but allows you to test it out in real time. Read the full update.
Over 400 backers responded to last week's one-question survey, and roughly three out of four asked for stickers for backing up DiceKeys. So we are giving our backers a free STICKEY set with every DiceKey ordered during the campaign, including to backers who squeeze in before Thursday's campaign deadline! Read the full update.
We have shipped test DiceKeys to everyone who joined our beta test program. We have also made a few app updates. The app will now inform users if it is unable to access a camera case and encourage them to correct this. We have also fixed a number of bugs that caused scanning to fail on Safari and some mobile browsers. Finally, we may be able to provide a free add-on to our backers. To help us prioritize this, please fill out the one-question survey in this update. Read the full update.
