Let’s get physical
The hundreds of physical and digital parts that make up Twine are hurtling together, and our office is getting crowded. We’ve got tons (yes, literally) of cases, circuit boards, cables, batteries, and boxes either in our workspace or on their way. We’re rushing toward feature freeze for the software. It’s getting crazy here, so crazy that we’re going to let photos do the talking this time.

The first batch of production circuit boards.
And now we’re all focusing on the painstaking process of testing, testing, killing bugs and testing. Our new engineer, David Clift-Reaves, is managing the production and QA. Here he’s inspecting each of the first boards that came back from the assembler.

There’s little else left other than to outline the shipping schedule, which has to reflect remaining debugging, and the mix of Twine boards and sensors that our assembler can deliver for us to load software and pack. That will come in the next update.
Until then, there are several hundred of you Kickstarter backers who haven’t yet signed up at https://spool.supermechanical.com with the registration link we sent you earlier — please do so, so we can plan your shipment!
