First Stretch Goal Complete!

Dear Backers,

Holy cow! We just blew through our first stretch goal for 3D drivers, at $300k. We’re looking forward to working with Jon Nettleton to enable Novena, and the greater i.MX6 user community, with 3D graphics drivers. This is going to be awesome!

With 6 days left, we still have a great chance to hit some of our other stretch goals. Next up is the General Purpose Breakout Board, a perfect utility for every day projects. From controlling motors to sensing the temperature to driving LED strips, it’s a handy tool and a nice reward to all our backers for helping make our campaign so successful.

Also, one other really exciting stretch goal is still in sight — the Software Defined Radio. At the moment we have 146 total laptop/desktop/heirloom units sold out of the 200 necessary to meet the minimum order requirement of MyriadRF. We’re 73% of the way to meeting that stretch goal, and getting closer every day!

So please remind your friends and colleagues that there’s only a few days left to pledge and help everyone receive these useful breakout boards.
