Trying to purchase a system

Post by DarkeRetribution » Thu Apr 06, 2017 1:38 pm

I would like one of these. I know it says you aren't making them anymore, but would it be possible to get one created? It's really important to me and my friends graduation party coming up! I love your work and have been following it for a long time. Having spent hundreds getting these guns, your command hub would be perfect to make using them easier :)

Please email me and let me know!! Look forward to hearing from you soon.

Thank you,
Holland M.

I would be interested in doing assembly of these systems, if that would help get production rolling again. @Riley, PM me if this would help.

I would love one, maybe two! I can even sponsor this device in my upcoming advertisements of the event I'm hosting to help move production along and get the word of this thing out more. My advertisements will be broadcast on Facebook and YouTube. I like to go all out with big events I host. Please let me know how much one or two of these will cost with that in mind, or if I am even able to get one of these made at all.

I don't want this project to languish but I have a lot going on and haven't been able to focus on it for a while. I'll try and figure out what I'm going to do soon. Chklnk, I might take you up on your assembly offer.

So, here are my plans:

I'm going to work on finishing up the Rev E PCB design. Once the new design is tested, I'll have a batch of boards built by an assembly service. In the meantime, while I'm waiting for boards and assembly and stuff, I'll work on open sourcing the software, the firmware, and the Rev C PCB.

The Rev C board was the last version that used all through-hole components and connects to an Arduino. The Rev E board (like Rev D) uses mostly surface mount components and includes a microcontroller on the same board so it doesn't need an Arduino. Rev E will improve USB compatibility and include some other minor improvements over Rev D.

I plan on selling a Rev C kit, a Rev E kit, and fully assembled units.

I still have a lot going on so I can't really guess on a time frame for any of this. I also reserve the right to change these plans.

Sounds encouraging!

In the mean time, DarkeRetribution, if you are in Texas maybe I can help you with the hosting.

Greetings...I know I am late to this party and this thread may very well be dead...but I’m going to take a chance because of the genius behind this. From what I understand, these units are not in production...but I saw that you dropped that you might possibly be thinking about selling kits. I know you also said you might need to change that plan as well. I told understand that life gets crazy and at times unpredictable. As a dad of three boys, thats the story of my life...There is any chance to still find one of these units or to be pointed ina direction about the cration or assembly of one, I’m all ears...Any chance for a ray of sunshine? If not, I compliment you on an great creation that I am sorry I missed out on.

Thanks,
Neal
