We have updated the user guides for how to assemble the Tinusaur Board, Shield LEDx2 and Shield EDUx4IO. They are all in PDF format and are available at the following links:
The collection of user guides is at tinusaur.org/guides.
Our plans are, once finalized, to convert those slides to video and upload them to YouTube – that appears to be more convenient for some people. Also, add some voice-over … maybe. 🙂
We’d like to ask you to take a look at the user guides and if you think there’s something to be added or changed, please, leave a comment below this post.
We’re almost at the end of our Indiegogo campaign and as you might be aware there is a delay in the production of the kits.
At TINUSAUR we strive to achieve the higher quality of the products. Unfortunately, while making the PCBs, the most important part of our boards, and working with some new suppliers, we were not happy with the quality of the production. Luckily, the great guys at OSHPARK jumped in and helped us get the PCB we need at the cost we could afford to keep the price points of our product low and affordable.
Good news – all the PCBs arrived a few days ago. We’ve assembled few pieces of them to make sure everything is fine and, with the exception of few minor glitches, all is good and ready to go.
This week we are packaging the broads and the components.
Next week we will start shipping the first batches of kits to the supporters.
We are 140% funded and there are only 16 hours left of our Indiegogo campaign.
This would’ve not happened without your support. 🙂
By continuing to support our cause you will help us get even more Tinusaur kits to our students.
Not interested in getting a Tinusaur board? You can donate to the project! Our promise: we will spend the money to bring the Tinusaur boards to even more students … as we’ve done it before.
Neither of those is for you? No problem. You could just share our campaign link https://igg.me/at/tinusaur to your social media channels such like Facebook, Twitter, or whatever you prefer.
Just a quick reminder: After the campaign is over the price of the boards, the kits, and the shipping will go slightly up so now is the best time get a bunch them.
Thanks again for your support.
As you may already know last week we announced the Tinusaur Shield LEDx2 – this is very simple add-on board that you put on top of the Tinusaur Board. It has just 4 components: 2 LEDs and 2 resistors for each LED – there is no much to solder.
Now we have bundled this with a Tinusaur Board and an USB-ASP Programmer and that is now the Tinusaur Starter 2 kit. Great, isn’t it!
Check the links below for more detailed content information about each of the products included in this bundle:
IMPORTANT: Note that this is a kit, you have to assemble it yourself.
This bundle has its own page at Bundles / Tinusaur Starter 2.
Please, check the Where to buy page to see if the Tinusaur Starter 2 at the The Tinusaur Online Store.
As you already know we ran out of all the kits at our online store and because we also received a lot of questions when the Tinusaur Starter and Tinusaur Board will be available we decided to allow you to preorder them. This way we’ll know how many of you are actually interested in buying so we’ll order the necessary quantities from our suppliers.
If you decided to preorder please should allow us between 2 and 3 weeks to get all the parts from our suppliers.
If you find The Tinusaur Project useful we would really appreciate you considering a small donation. Please look at the right side bar for more information.
Thank again for you interest and support.
