TinyPICO is Now Shipping to Backers!

Backer Shipping Time!!!!!!

Crowd Supply has started shipping backer orders, and it’s a week earlier than our shipping target!

We’re not sure if the orders go out in backer order or not, but all orders there are units for should be shipped out early next week :). This includes all orders placed during the crowdfunding campaign, and a few placed during the pre-order period. If you’re in this first batch, you’ll receive a shipping notification email with your tracking number a business day after your pacakge is out the door.

Considering that orders were 4x our expectations, we’re very proud to deliver orders earlier than planned - even if it’s by just a week!

More Code On GitHub

We’ve been slowly adding more MicroPython code and libraries to the TinyPICO GitHub repository and will continue adding more over the next few weeks.

How To Get More TinyPICOs?

Now that backer orders have begun shipping, we are preparing TinyPICO and Shield Pack stock for Crowd Supply to have on hand, so you’ll be able to purchase without having to wait for us to fulfill orders.

Once all backer orders have shipped, we will begin making TinyPICO available via other stores so you’ll have multiple ways to get your hands on more TinyPICOs when you need it.

We will only have limited stock on hand for the next month, so please be patient with us as we ramp up production again.

What’s Next?

Once we get through our next production run, we want to focus on some of our new TinyPICO Shield and Add-On board ideas, and also look at more TinyPICO development board variations to add to the family.

We will keep everyone updated on our progress via these update emails, but you can also follow our progress via:

I've spent my life sitting in front of a computer screen for work and for play and recently I decided I wanted to do more things with my hands... electronics, woodworking or 3D printing... I don't mind what it is, so long as I am not staring at a computer screen. Please join me on my journey as I make and break projects, discover new things, and hopefully inspire you to go out and make something too!
