Hi Ted. Thanks for your interest! My friend and I are working on this. He is redesigning the PCB for high quality analog reading and I am working to get the laser cut parts. We plan to launch a Kickstarter at the beginning of June, when the device is thoroughly tested in a form we can mass produce. I am actually going to work full time on this when I finish my masters in April. The production will start as soon as the Kickstarter finishes, end of June. We will also post an update on this blog before June. I see you are in Ontario, we are based in Ottawa/Gatineau!
