They are still on the way!
Here is the first finished sample from the factory!
However... we had a significantly major hiccup at the factory last month when all of the printed circuit board assemblies failed quality inspection. All of the components are ready and waiting to be assembled in the factory but we have to reproduce all the circuit boards, so it looks like we will likely miss getting these delivered before Christmas.
If successful, we are offsetting the cost of this production by trying to sell the remaining units of the production batch to our manufacturer/distributor Seeed studio. So that is why the store shows out of stock, there was a problem where it wasn't showing on the site.
If you had been planning on receiving this before Christmas and would like a refund please let us know using the contact form.
If you still believe in the project, we are working hard to get all of the pre-orders fulfilled as fast as possible. If by the end of January we have still not shipped the pre-order units we will be proactively refunding all customers, so there is no risk for people who would like to wait.
Last but not least, it does look like this will be a limited edition production run, so for those who have already ordered it's a great place in line. For others who would like to grab one, the best advice is to wait until it is in stock at Seeed.
Sorry for the delay, it's still on the way! Please let us know if we can do anything to help!
