    Hi @jukeman60
    Yes we are still here and still working hard to develop these boards.
    Along with the boards we are also working on software as well.
    Once we release, it will be very apparent :)
    Thank you for your interest and support in the project.

    About 1500mm a second, but you can hear the gears growl every time you try to reposition the bone...

    This one is still in the works guys! We are also working on putting together a fun little snapshot of the BlackBox prototype progression that has helped make this all that has shaped up to be.
    We can't wait to get these to you guys but we have to make sure they are right.

    When you guy’s where showing the APEX system you had a nice looking controller case. Can I assume you are using the same or similar case with the Black Box project? I was wondering if it would be possible to purchase this controller case as a stand alone item in the parts store.

    How do we know this not going to be another Apex? Waited a long time for that then nothing... really can't keep waiting.

    Switching gears for a while isn't that bad. An Arduino Nano with a screw shield is a very cheap solution for short or long term! I have my CBeam XL ready to go other than my slow *** wiring abilities. The Nano is a perfect fit until the elusive Black Box hits the streets.
