Maker Faire, Closed Mon. May 24th

Hey look, we're at Maker Faire!

Hey look, we're at the Solarbotics Office!

...

Hey look, we're like an  amoeba, splitting in half to be in two places at once.

Ok, here's the skinny -  Right now, most of our staff is US-bound to attend the previously mentioned MakerFaire in the San Mateo/Bay Area in California. If you happen to be near by this weekend (22nd and 23rd), be sure to swing by to say hello. And be sure to look around too, there'll be tons of neat stuff to see.

Back at the ranch (the Solarbotics ranch, that is), we're running on a bare-bones skeleton crew. We're still able to process and fill some orders, but there's a good chance there will be a 1-2 business day delay on some until most of the crew returns and we're back to full capacity. Due to the absence of our shipping staff, we are unable to process orders for either UPS or FedEx. It's also important to note that we will be closed on Monday, May 24th for Victoria Day.

So, a quick recap: Maker Faire - go to it. On Monday the 24th, we'll be closed. When open, Solarbotics core services (including telephone and email support, order processing, and package shipping) will be significantly limited. We will do the best we can, but can't make any guarantees until Wednesday of next week (the 26th) when we get back up to strength.

We apologize for the short notice, but the past few weeks have been rather crazy-go-nuts while we try to prepare for Maker. Thanks for your patience!

Big news! We've put in an order to bring in a schwack-load (a scientific unit of measurement) of the new n' shiny Arduino Leonardo. We can't quite say when they're set to arrive, though, but we're hoping it'll only be a few weeks...ish. Looks like this will be a really popular board, due to the impressive […]

GM17 Accessories and Gears/Pinions/Spurs

If you'll recall correctly, in last week's news post I said something along the lines of "Keep an eye out for new PICAXE bundles in the coming week." But I was quickly bound and gagged by a pack of vicious lawn gnomes (packing lawn gnome-sized guns, no less), preventing me from fulfilling the promise.  So […]

Minor Additions and New Links

Boy, there's work to do on new websites. Link checking, spell checking, image links - all sorts of crap that doesn't have anything to do directly with robots! Even so, we've been able to put up a few new images of Mark Tilden's "Projectorbots" on the Photovores page. Yuck. Must do something about how hard […]
