On our crowdfunding page, you might have seen the following preview videos of our Oculus Quest application and our SLP v2 (StereoPi Livestream Playground v2) Raspberry Pi OS image.
If you are the lucky owner of a StereoPi v1, you can jump into these beta programs right now! And, if you don’t have a StereoPi but you do have a Raspberry Pi with a camera, you can still play with these tools, as we made sure to maintain 100% compatibility with the classic Raspberry Pi.
You can find more details on the Oculus Quest app here on our forum.
As for SLP v2, you can join our advanced user testing program here. Next week, we’ll add more details about SLP v2 to our Wiki, to make it easier for everyone to give it a try.
As you know, hardware production involves a great many potential risks. We did our best to account for those we could anticipate, but one unexpected risk has managed to slow us down slightly. We promised to keep you informed about any issues that came up during production, so here’s what happened:
Though we tried to get access to our campaign funds the week we hit our funding goal, we were only able to do so yesterday. As a result, our manufacturing run has been delayed by approximately two and a half weeks. We’ll do our best to accelerate the production schedule, but right now our target delivery time has shifted from the 30th of April to the second half of May.
The good news is that, as of today, we have received all campaign funds and the production process has begun.
That which does not kill us makes us stronger. We had some issues with StereoPi v1 production as well, but we overcame them and successfully delivered all products to our backers. Rest assured that we’ll do the same for StereoPi v2.
Thank you for your understanding and support!
