Campaign Conclusion, Moving Forward

The RggBer campaign has concluded and unfortunately, it did not meet its funding goal. Consequently, no backers will be charged for their pledges. The RggBer team and I would like to send our sincere thanks to everyone who did back RggBer, signed up for updates, and followed the campaign. All of the pledges and feedback were very encouraging for the future of RggBer. Our hope is that as Arduino has become a standard for general electronic control and Raspberry PI has become a standard for embedded CPU applications, RggBer will become a standard for open hardware dedicated to embedded video applications. Our goal is for RggBer to become a world standard.

While RggBer did not meet its funding goal for several reasons, it’s important to know that this is not the end of our project. We’ve learned a lot from this campaign, so our plan is to relaunch on Crowd Supply after making a number of changes and improvement. Specifically, we plan to:

  • Play a larger role in online communities to gather feedback and information from potential followers and users. We hope to try out some different projects with community help, so people can get a better idea of what RggBer does, and how we can improve it.
  • We plan to upgrade RggBer with a series of daughter boards that extend RggBer’s functionality for inter-connectivity, image net building, multi-camera systems, and optical arrays.
  • We will investigate new pricing structures, possibly with an “early bird” offering for initial supporters.

If you are interested in the future of RggBer and want to share any ideas or suggestions, please feel free to email us. We will post another update once we have established our community presence, so that backers and interested parties can find us and add to the conversation. We’re looking forward to it!
