This is our biggest update so far, after we've delivered our first order of Maypole. We sincerely apologize to all our backers for the delay that we caused for some orders. It was due to shipping batteries outside of India, and we were doing it for the first time. They have now successfully shipped, and will arrive to you shortly. We also have updated our GitHub repo with our first major new version release in firmware. More details and screenshots below. Read the full update.
Hey, It seems all of you have waited much longer than expected. We want to thank all of you who have been waiting patiently for that hardware to end up in your hands. We have resolved all of our export issues, and we are shipping to Crowd Supply's warehouse today. As soon as we ship Maypole, we can start sharing new software updates that provide new features.

Maypole products are on their way to Crowd Supply's warehouse for final distribution. Please take this time to check your delivery address, and update it through your Crowd Supply account if needed. Read the full update.
While we continue to be affected by the COVID-19 situation in India, including additional lockdowns, we have managed to carry out a series of three tests on each of the 192 maypoles produced in this batch. They are all working properly and we expect to pack them up and ship them to Crowd Supply before the end of the month. We've set the estimated ship date to the end of June, but we fully expect to ship before that. Thank you for your patience! Read the full update.
We are still assembling Maypole boards but (as you can see above), we have enough to begin testing. So far so good! We're also happy to report that, as things stand, we're on schedule for our May 31st estimated ship date. Stay tuned! Read the full update.
While PCB assembly should be completed by the end of next week, we will need some additional time for programming, testing, packaging, and shipping. After including a couple more weeks as a buffer, we ended up with a revised shipping estimate of May 31st, 2021. Apologies for the delay, and thank you for your patience! Read the full update.
We've completely redesigned our Web-based graphical user interface to make it simpler and easier to use. (Screenshots below.) We've also added OTA support to Maypole. Read the full update.
Over the weekend, we received 350 Maypole PCBs from our fabrication partner. Next up: assembly! Read the full update.
One of our backers made a great suggestion: why not add GPIO expansion to Maypole? We liked the idea so much, we decided to do it! To that end, we designed a revision with four GPIO so that Maypole can be used to interface with sensors and other hardware add-ons. These pins can be used for SPI, I²C, UART, or analog input. Read the full update.
We recently completed a batch of 3D-printed enclosures for Maypole. This update includes photographs and design files so you can print your own! Read the full update.
We did it! Thank you to everyone who helped us reach our funding goal. We can't wait to get your Maypole in the mail! This update includes links to design files and a brief description of a key firmware feature that we're currently implementing. Read the full update.
Today, crowdfunding begins for a new kind of open hardware storage system. Maypole allows users to share data wirelessly and makes it easier for designers to add Wi-Fi and Bluetooth functionality to their products. Come check it out! Read the full update.
