As this crazy year is coming to an end, I thought I would take a moment and wish everyone merry Christmas and happy holidays!
At the beginning of the year as a result of our very first Kickstarter campaign, we started shipping out the YIO Remote kits. There was a small delay due to the virus, but managed to ship the kits out around the same time as planned.
We were happy to hear all the good feedback and request to sell more kits, so we ran another small batch and they were also gone in a very short period of time. We took it as a signal that there is need for a remote like this.
We are grateful for all the contributions to the software and all the suggestions for improvements. We couldn’t develop the software in the tempo we have envisioned ourselves, but - as I think many of us - we had to deal with work, new ways of living and personal matters. We are still nurturing this DIY project in our free time.
We have plans for the future. We are trying to figure out ways how we can spend more time with the project and ways how to make it available again in a more sustainable manner. But this alone would deserve its own post
We are proud of what we managed to achieve this year and can’t thank you enough for your support and that you also believe in this project like we do. We have a good base and I hope 2021 will allow us a bit more to build upon what we already have.
Christmas is around the corner and I thought, I would give away one of the remotes that was used for testing. It’s one of the early builds. It is not perfect, but it works and I hope it would make someone happy
So I ask you to comment here and write a few words about how you’d use the remote. I will pick a random reply on Sunday and will ship the remote off so there’s a chance it arrives before Christmas.
Looking forward to your responses and again merry Christmas and happy new near!
