All the parts were received from our suppliers – The Tinusaur Board and The Tinusaur Starter are back in stock at our online store at Storenvy.
We don’t have the resource to supply more that couple of hundred boards at once so if they sold out like the last time please be patient – we will replenish our online store as soon as we can.
The prices, as it is our promise, have not changed since the first batch of boards we shipped. We don’t make profit either. So if you really want to help us keep this project going please consider making a small donation via PayPal.
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.
Dear friends, due to increased popularity of our Tinusaur Project in the last couple of days and unexpected high demand for the kits in our online store . . . we just ran out of almost all of them.
We contacted our suppliers and ordered more parts but it could take up to 3 weeks until they arrive so please be patient.
If you need just the PCB you can order it directly from OSH Park at this address: https://oshpark.com/shared_projects/9IZsFiXL.
Please follow us on Twitter at @tinusaur where we post more updates.
Some of the people who received the Tinusaur Starter kit wrote us that it isn’t that easy to figure and remember how to put and use the 2 small 2×1 headers for the external power and the battery on/off. So, we decided to make a small change – have those in different colors.
PS1 (external power source) is now red.
BS1, BJ1 (battery switch and jumper) are now yellow.
Your feedback is really valuable to us.
Finally, our online store is up and running.
We received some emails asking if we could offer the boards and the parts for purchasing … so we did it. We have to admit that it took us some time to arrange everything but some of the circumstances were beyond our control.
At the moment we have only one product listed – that’s the Tinusaur Starter.
Go to this tinusaur.storenvy.com/products/6076006-tinusaur-starter link if you’d like to buy it.
We have put up for sale very small batch of those starter kits as we don’t know what the interest will be. Please note that at the moment we don’t do this as a business and we do not make any profit – the sale only covers our expenses.
More information about the Tinusaur Starter kit is available at the Tinusaur Starter page.
IMPORTANT: This is offered as a kit which means that you have to assemble it yourself.
We chose Storenvy for our shopping site and we think that it was a good choice – it’s easy to setup and use but also provides all the functionality that we need at this stage. You can pay for your orders with PayPal.
