Model 01 Day 1216: In which a record-setting typhoon is basically a footnote

Hello from Oakland, It’s been a few months since we last wrote, and lots has been happening! We’ve delivered (almost) all of the keyboards that had been preordered, had a couple hundred keyboards in stock, run out of stock, and started taking backorders for additional keyboards. We also have a bit of news about a travel case for the Model 01 and a mysterious teaser about our next product. Model 01 Hardware News Inventory With the exception of about five folks we haven’t been able to track down and some of the folks who ordered Mahogany Model 01s, we believe...

April 2018 update

TL;DR: Kickstarter units have almost all shipped; most post-Kickstarter pre-orders have shipped; extra keycap sets are expected to ship sometime in April Hello from Oakland, When we last wrote a public update on January 25, we told you that assembly of MP2 keyboards had been completed and that assembly of MP3 was in progress.

Model 01 Kickstarter Day 907: Update on wood suppliers and MP1 field reports

  Hello from Oakland, We’re going to miss Christmas deliveries for most, if not all unshipped Kickstarter and pre-order keyboards. There is an outside chance that we’ll be able to ship out about 500 more keyboards before Christmas, but we’d rather not mis-set your expectations (again). We feel horrible about this. We’re really, really sorry. Please know that we’re not slacking off. We’ve been continuing to have nightly conference calls with the factory and have been pushing the suppliers as hard as we can to try to catch up. If you want to know what’s been happening, read on.
