• Tessel 2 Has Shipped!

    Monday, April 11, 2016

    We are thrilled to announce that Tessel 2 has shipped to all domestic and international pre-orders.

    This is one of the first times a distributed, unpaid team of open source contributors has shipped a physical product. We are proud to be a part of the open source hardware movement.

    Huge thanks to everyone who has contributed so far to the Tessel Project. Whether you’re a core contributor, someone who found a typo to fix, or one of our test subjects for the start experience: thank you. We value what you’ve done.

    “This sounds like a cool project, how can I get involved?”

    New contributors are always welcome! Here are a few ways to get involved:

    You can read more about how the Tessel Project works as an organization under open governance on the Tessel Project repo.

    “I just got my Tessel 2, what do I do?”

    The best place to start with your Tessel 2 is at tessel.io/start. You can find tutorials there for everything from blinking lights to tweeting to creating your own local internet.

    If you’re interested in trying something off the beaten path - electrical fun, advanced hacks, and more, check out tessel.io/docs. If you’re new to hardware, don’t worry! They’re intended to be accessible to electrical newbies - and if they’re not, please file an issue to let us know.

    We’re continuing to update the start experience and the Tessel 2 docs, so please check back again!

    “But wait, I don’t think mine shipped!” - if this is you, please contact support@tessel.io, and we will figure it out. Please do note that orders from Seeed Studio’s page are fulfilled by Seeed directly.

    “What’s next for the Tessel Project?”

    Phew, shipping one product was a lot of work! Realistically, there will be some bugfixing to do as all of you let us know how it’s going and what you’re working on.

    As far as a next product- no promises, but we have some ideas….

    Partially, it’s up to you: what do you want to see? What’s the best way we can further the Tessel Project Mission?

    Much love,

    The Tessel Project team
