I can hardly believe its true, but what was just a hobby project a few months ago is now the beginning of a new business. Today I modestly opened the webshop and the first kits sold out in minutes and are now on their way to early adopters across europe. Since I couldnt afford to buy components for more kits the stock was very limited, but things will ramp up quickly.

The next production run has already started, which will consist of around 50 complete kits. My apartment will surely get cramped, but its worth it. Even if I won't get rich on the kits, its an amazing feeling to make money from your passion. And to be honest, I think my passion for the tech is what people want to be part of. Also, since I was more or less unemployed last year this has been a true salvation.

No matter if you're planning on buying or just like to follow and share the project, I can't even describe how thankful I am to you all. You are the best!!!
