I really had to write an update to this project, but it's a difficult task.

This project has been a major part of my life for almost 2 years. From the 2014 semi finals to a swiss company scam in May of 2016, I encountered almost everything possible and lost a lot :

So, despite I still believe this device is a very important one, I now prefer devoting my time and skills to other projects. I've lost too much because of it.

The device is running well, but the code is not secure enough to give it to the public, so I won't release it in the actual state. The device is too critical to be used lightly, or by someone who is not aware about its actual limits. I don't want this kind of responsibility anymore.

However, I learned a lot, from designing to dealing with lawyers. And it was a great experimentation.

You are free to email me if you want to discuss about it.

Thank you hackaday, and many thanks to the hackaday readers who supported this project.

I do feel for whatever happened to you.Unfortunately the current way of the world seems very bleak. You project caught my attention back in 2015, it seemed to me it was a great idea.

Men....sorry for the loss. I've noticed this project since 2015. But didn't expect the outcome. I would thought that this was acquired by some named corp already...

I guess the whole story would worth something.

all the best for the rest, but maybe it can be a good idea to release into public domain the stuff if you don't plan to do update, like that the community can continue the project.
