Unfortunately, We Will Not Be Able to Launch This Campaign

by Seth K

Hello everyone,

In light of the ongoing uncertainties in the current economy, we want to share some important updates. Over the past year, our journey as a maker business has been filled with challenges. These challenges include fluctuations in sales, increased operating costs, and difficulties in reaching our valued customers, like yourselves. While these trials have indeed tested our resilience, we’ve explored various strategies to adapt and weather the storm.

Unfortunately, despite our best efforts, we have come to the tough decision to temporarily suspend our operations starting Saturday, September 16th. We have carefully evaluated the situation and realized that, at this moment, we cannot ensure the accessibility and affordability of our products to our cherished community of makers and potential supporters. We want to emphasize that this decision was not made lightly, and we deeply regret that we won’t be able to launch as originally planned.

We extend our heartfelt gratitude to all of you who supported us during our prelaunch phase. While it saddens us that we cannot see this project through at this time, there is a silver lining. As part of our commitment to the community, the board files and schematics are accessible on GitHub and will continue to be available for your use. We also plan to gradually add more files, including the USB C version and the Bill of Materials (BOM), for those interested in building their own projects.

Once again, we thank you for your unwavering support, and we wish you all the best in your future endeavors.
