It's been a long time since the last update! Apologies. Life got in the way. But I've been making slow and steady progress. I got PCBs manufactured, updated and re-updated the design, moved to a 'better' pressure sensor amplifier and showcased the project in a fest. And of course, we finally have a logo!

Finally I'm at a point where I can manufacture 20 units and get them into the hands of makers in the coming weeks. The updated PCBs are on their way from China, and most components are in stock. The BOM comes up to around 65$ including shipping, so I'm planning to sell these kits for <100$.

The website will be up and alive soon. Look out for programmable-air.com. I want to spend time making tutorials next. I want to make it as easy as possible for people to get started with the kit.
