An #Outsider Newsflash (Special Edition) : An Update on one of our #Kickstarter Backed Projects

We here @ #Outsiders were early and enthusiastic supporters of this fabulous initiative.     We just received this update in our Virtual Studios over email which we wanted to report on--it speaks for itself as we eagerly await to get our hands on our own and to develop and report on it here in the "Visions" Channel:

This is a great opportunity for a shipping dress rehearsal as we test our shipping integration.  There will be two different Alpha C.H.I.P. shipments.  The first shipment of Alpha C.H.I.P.s will be shipped unflashed to get our Kernel Hackers hacking immediately.   Don't worry, we have plenty of documentation to get you started.
