Notacon badge schematics

Tuesday, May 17th, 2011

Seth Hardy, creator of the Notacon 8 board badge, just posted the schematics for the board on his SVN server. Check them out, if you are so technically inclined and interested.

Also, we still have a few more parts kits, add-ons and spare batteries for the badges, for those interested.

Badge kits shipping

Friday, May 13th, 2011

We are now shipping Notacon 8 badge parts kits for those who pre-ordered them! Thank you all for your patience while we gathered orders, ordered the parts, built the kits and got them to the post office!

For those who missed out, we actually have enough parts leftover to put together a few spare its. If you are still interested in a kit, please order them quickly before they’re gone for good at:

Also, check out a lot of extra accessories and spare batteries available for the badges, as well as other Notacon shwag:

As a side and more personal note, after being effectively without employment for over 6 months now, I am planning on trying to make a full-time job out of Notacon and Nerd’s Nook. Thus, your support, word-of-mouth mentions and, of course, orders, not only help support Notacon, but also, hopefully, me, as I put all of my efforts into making Notacon better than ever before!

Only a few more days to pre-order parts kits!

Thursday, May 5th, 2011

If you haven’t put in a pre-order yet for your parts kits, please do so immediately! We will stop taking pre-orders at the end of the day on May 8th. At that time we will put in OUR orders for the parts, assemble the kits and ship them out.

If you’re just looking for the badges/circuit boards themselves, we have some of them left as well.
