Hello!

I created a kickstarter to get enough pre-orders to afford the production run and box manufacturing for my case:

Head over to kickstarter and check it out... Otherwise, take a look at the campaign video on youtube:

Beardface (May I assume that's pronounce beard-fa-say?), you practically made this exact same post 3 times (creating 2 threads) within 5 or 6 minutes of each other. On most forums you'd be facing a temporary ban for spamming. We like to give people the benefit of the doubt here, especially when they're just excited about displaying their work, so this will just be a warning. Please don't spam the boards :-)
Dear forum: Play nice ;-)

Apologies for the multi-post - The forum has many different places where this information could go, so I put it where I thought the information belonged.

And yes, it is fa-say. :)

As for the PiCrust Namagery, the same point was brought up elsewhere; I've actually been selling separate cases branded as PiCrust before his went on sale, and started developing this case as the "PiCrust" back in march... Fortunately I've stored up all my documentation and trail of development- So I'm not to concerned should he decide to complain. (I have no problem sharing the brand as long as he doesn't go totalitarian).

Updated with a GPIO Port, and rendered in the retro-green case option.

If this becomes a reality, how much do you envisage it being able to be purchased for?
And what postage costs?

After it gets funded, I'll be putting it up on amazon to let them distribute / ship for me.

The cost will be between 8.99 and 12.99, depending on how much it actually costs me to produce them.

Personally I love it!
I love the fact that it doesn't look home made - kind of like a mini Wii? :D
Not too sure about the advert...I think the lettering is too small.
Everyone's a critic right :P
