Project update 8 of 13
Wow! We are speechless at the amount of support Giant Board has received. With the campaign coming to a close in the next 24 hours, there is still some time to back us if you haven’t already. Thanks to each and every one of you who has helped us get here! Without your support Giant Board would not have become a reality, and we are so grateful!
We are also excited to be moving on to the next phase: getting boards made and out to beta backers as soon as possible. Shortly after that, we’ll be making and delivering the rest of the boards. As mentioned in the campaign, our design has been thoroughly tested and samples have already been made, so we are fully prepared to hit the ground running and do not expect any issues moving forward.
Our next steps include placing an order for the beta boards and parts, then shipping them to our manufacturer. We are already in talks with that manufacturer, so we should have those beta boards in the pipeline soon. After they’re assembled, the boards will be shipped to Crowd Supply, who will then distribute them to backers. We will keep you all updated on the manufacturing process and let you know when you can expect your Giant Boards to ship.
It’s been an incredible journey, and we can’t wait to get those boards into the hands of backers so we can start being amazed by all of the things you use them to create. We put in a lot of work to make the Giant Board hardware and software as easy-to-use as possible – for as many people as possible – and the real payoff comes when you all start building cool projects with them! If you haven’t already, please stop by our community forums, say hello, and maybe share some project ideas. We look forward to seeing you around!
Thanks again, everyone, for a great campaign. And stay tuned for more updates!
