A Note From Our Founders
It’s a big week here at relayr.
We are about to start shipping the WunderBars!
For the past few months, we have been working almost around the clock to get the WunderBar as perfect as it can possibly be and we are off to a roaring start. From crowdfunding success to shipping in 6 months—it’s been a rollercoaster experience, through hardware, firmware and software. There is still lots to do, but we wanted to get the first versions out to you as soon as possible.
Just a few WunderBar boxes, hot off the press and ready to receive the boards
We’ve been thrilled about creating the WunderBar. We believe that it is the most powerful, easy to use and affordable tool for app developers to bridge the divide between hardware and software and create incredible new connected devices with sensors, Bluetooth and WiFi.
So, now that we’ve released the first version of our app developer starter kit for the Internet of Things, what are we most excited about?
We can’t wait to see what fantastic new projects will be created by you in the WunderBar community. Seeing how many people will discover how to develop for hardware using the WunderBar and getting to experience all of your projects—the fun ones, the zany ones and the really, really useful ones—is what most excites us. Here just a glimpse of some of the ideas you have been sharing with us:>
Just a fraction of the growing list of ideas you have been sharing with us
The reason that we developed the WunderBar was to help all of you creative, original and daring app developers to break out of the digital and into the physical world simply, quickly and effectively.
We can’t wait to see what you do.
Jackson, Paul, Harald
and the relayr Team
After we have shipped out the WunderBars to our crowdfunding backers, we will begin to send out our pre-order deliveries through Conrad—our exclusive partner in distributing the WunderBar—followed by it going on general sale.
Our current shipping dates are:
First: Crowdfunding backers, shipped between 29 August - 3 September.
Second: Pre-orders, shipped between 15 - 19 September
Third: Distributors, shipped after 30 September
Some Info About Our Apps
Our first Android Onboarding App is in the Google Play store ready for you to download. Please pick it up, play with it and let us know what you think. As much feedback as you have, the better! We need your help to make it as good as it can possibly be.
To all of our iPhone and iOS users—the iOS app is currently awaiting approval. The App Store can be little slow at times, but we do hope to have it available for everyone within the next 2-3 weeks, which should be just in time for our pre-order deliveries.
Here is a sneak peak of our iOS Onboarding App!
How hot are you? Jackson is 29.39 degrees hot!
AND FINALLY, PLEASE NOTE: The Sensor Modules will also be offering Beacon functionalities and Direct BLE connection to your phone in the next few weeks, so stay tuned!
