Are you not entertained?

April 20th - via: kickstarter.com
Still need some convincing, eh? I did say it was still in development, and I've worked out the final half of the phasor/vector portion of the circuit - Not only is it addressable, but the direction changes based on drive polarity.  So you can feed... (Read More)

International-only combo deal added,

April 20th - via: kickstarter.com
International shipping has become ridiculous over the last few years and it's understandably holding a few people back, so a special international-only combo deal has been added: Get two Facehuggers for $398 + $50 for shipping. They'll still ship... (Read More)

We're in the final stretch and new videos.

April 15th - via: kickstarter.com
Less than a week to go! Thanks to all of you who have stuck it out so far. I know it's easy to get discouraged, but it isn't done yet and the follower count keeps growing; never celebrate or mourn until it's over. I'm still working on the development... (Read More)

Time to get serious: Early Birds reopened until 21, April.

April 13th - via: kickstarter.com
I had planned to go all-in when planning this project, so why mess around? The Early Bird tiers have been reopened until April 21st - let's make this happen! ~flight  (Read More)

Video updates!

April 9th - via: kickstarter.com
It took longer than expected (don't ask about using Logitech cameras with OBS) but videos of the updated and properly-working alpha are up in the video section. I'll be busy filling some orders for the next few days, but let me know if there are... (Read More)

Quick VC Scale demo

April 5th - via: kickstarter.com
Demonstration of the added voltage-controlled Scale feature, comparing it with the voltage-controlled Root feature.  All the solo features are now fully functional, more videos soon. I need to clean up the mess and get the cameras set up again.... (Read More)

I screwed up on the pricing, apologies!

April 5th - via: kickstarter.com
Someone commented yesterday about being glad to grab a Facehugger early bird because the $285 regular price was too much; it's been rattling in my head since then and it finally clicked just a bit ago: nobody is supposed to be paying MSRP for any of... (Read More)

Still pokin' at it.

April 5th - via: kickstarter.com
Found the glide section was slowly burning the ICs I was using. Burned a few chips before I realized I could just use a mechanical DPDT for the same cost as the ICs I was planning to use, so reworked that section. Glide works good now at full ±10V... (Read More)

Utility panel vs. Default panel

April 4th - via: kickstarter.com
The different rewards were just so that the panel options were visible. You can choose which panel you get if you don't really want the one that was available, just let me know. This applies to both module and kit rewards. The utility panel add-on... (Read More)

Got the revised prototype working. It now has all the solo functions, I just need to do some adjustments and then I'll get more videos up. In the meantime, have some janky phone-recorded cacophony!  (Read More)

Facehugger breadboard prototype r0.2 wired up.

April 2nd - via: kickstarter.com
Got it wired up finally and will start testing tomorrow. I had to make an extension panel for the added Scale potentiometer, jack, and ±5V indicator LEDs - I hadn't notice that my printer had scaled the template to 96.8% until I tried mounting the... (Read More)

50% reached!

April 1st - via: kickstarter.com
While I generally prefer to be a killjoy, I will admit that hitting 50% in a bit over a week is pretty damn cool. Thank you to everyone for all your support and encouragement! I'm working on redoing the breadboard prototype to add in the rest of the... (Read More)

March 28th - via: kickstarter.com
As requested, custom fonts are now available with the Custom Panel Color add-on. The only restriction being that the chosen fonts is allowed to be used in this manner without a license or fee.  In other news: Thanks to some recent orders, I was able... (Read More)

Changed 5V LED configuration and updated project image

March 27th - via: kickstarter.com
An important point was raised about bicolor LEDs and color blindness, so the 5V indicator LED has been changed to separate green and red LEDs, so the position itself will indicate the current value.  The main project image has been updated to... (Read More)

Expansion panel images added.

March 25th - via: kickstarter.com
Added the 75mm slide potentiometer expansion panel to below the stretch goal section and added example images for both panels.  (Read More)

Added Gate function to Trigger input.

March 25th - via: kickstarter.com
Trigger input now functions as both gate and trigger, allowing continuous cycling until gate signal is low. This also applies to the pushbutton: cycling continues until button is released. ~flight  (Read More)

Module width and alternative Expansion panel

March 24th - via: kickstarter.com
The question of panel width has come up - some say 16hp is perfect, some say it's way too small, and some fall somewhere in between. There is also a fair amount of disagreement on slider length (The images and prototype use 35mm slide pots). The... (Read More)
