It does look a cool project.

It'll would be interesting to find out what LCD is being used as I'm sure the RPi community like a cheap and small LCD for other projects.

Pledged without blinking. Cool project!

My other pledges' payments went through amazon. For this one I had to pull the good old credit-card. I actually prefer that, but is it something a project starter can choose? Or is it a UK thing?

For folks new to kickstarter, here's a great way to track progress:

I tried posting this to the frontpage, but I think the link is spamblocked.

192 British pounds sterling = 309.9264 US dollars.

I am loving it but it seems it wants to do the conversion. It looks like your going to make it though hope you can find a good US distributor we don't want to be left out. I would love to branch you guys over here. I don't think finding funds for your designs is all that difficult.

Great project, good luck.

On the theme of retro gaming I'm currently working full time on a series of pinball mods using the Raspberry Pi. First project is the DMD Extender - use an external monitor to display the Dot Matrix Display in real time.

Check out the prototype on YouTube...

I'm just about to get the interface boards manufactured and get a few prototypes out.

Best wishes, David.

I would also be interested in the lcd used, and what cod was involved in making the pi output to it.
