- Support us on Indiegogo or Patreon if you can
- What chips do you want to see next?
- We might start reaching out to community for practice samples
You may have noticed we spit out a bunch of posts and then mostly went quiet. While we've continued to move some chips through the pipeline, we've been focusing on a longer term project strategy.
The biggest issue to keep moving is ensuring sufficient funds. Excluding existing equipment and our time, so far we've spent over $2500. This includes supplies for a number of chips already in progress. We love this project but need to find a balance between what we and the community contributes.
To that end, we are experimenting with fundraising platforms. If you want to make a one time donation, support us on Indiegogo. If you want to provide longer term monthly support, support us on Patreon. Part of determining which chips we'll work on is what resources are available. More resources allow us to work faster and mitigate risks. For example, procuring practice samples before working on a rare chip. To be clear, even if fundraising completely flops we'll continue to do what we can.
We realize that these platforms may not be ideal for everyone. We are exploring some alternate methods such as PayPal.
Finally, we are compiling a list of chips to work on for Q1 2017. Shout out in the comments below for what you'd like to see.
