Early Delivery Orders Shipping Soon & Firmware Update

Hi backers! Crowd Supply is going to start shipping the early-bird orders soon. If you need to update your shipping address, please do so through your Crowd Supply account. The rest of the orders will ship later still, in January next year.

The first batch of Blip boards is with Crowd Supply, coming straight from our contract manufacturer, who also did our production testing.

This batch was actually manufactured some time ago, and our demonstration firmware, which sends all sensor data over BLE to our phone app, or to your browser to show pretty graphs wasn’t ready, so that firmware needs to be flashed on to Blip to use the App or WebBluetooth demos.

We have written the instructions along with the download link for firmware in our documentation portal. Before you can use gdb to flash the firmware, you will need gdb from a arm-none-eabi-gcc toolchain.

If you are already familiar with gdb and using Black Magic Probe (or Bumpy), then here is the quick link to download the firmware:
