Thank you! Time to get to work.

Dear Backers,

Thank you!

Because of you, we raised an astounding $700k+ for the Novena campaign. The past 48 hours have been a whirlwind, with us blowing through every stretch goal and then doubling up once again. We are sincerely grateful for all the support and enthusiasm around our project, and we look forward to working with you over the coming months to build a robust and diverse user community around this platform.

Now the hard work begins of cutting steel, building boards, and testing your devices to make sure every one of you receives a top-quality product and right on schedule. Tonight bunnie is hopping on a plane to visit our suppliers and finalize production plans, now that we know how many we need to build. We’ll also be touching base with our campaign partners, Jon Nettleton and MyriadRF, to get their contributions to our project moving as well.

Thanks again for all the support and enthusiasm. We look forward to keeping in touch with you and updating you on our progress, and we invite you to get involved in our community by visiting our user forum and our IRC channel.

Thanks,

bunnie and xobs
