Production Has Started

We’re pleased to report that production of the Tau Camera is underway! It’s expected to be done by May 2, 2021. However, our CM has warned us there may be delays in sourcing some components like the main microcontroller and a power management IC because of the global microchip shortage.

We’ll share photos and updates during production to keep everyone informed about the progress and any potential delays.
