Kickstarter deployment begins

Geiger shipment

Anyone who has been following our Kickstarter project knows that the main goal was to deploy 100 sensors on the ground in Japan, and that anyone who donated $1000 or more would actually be sent their own geiger counter. We’re happy to announce that as of today both of these have started happening. We’ve been posting fairly regular updates about on the ground activities over on so check there for the nitty gritty. We’ve also begun sending out the thank you packages to the donors who chipped in a bit less than $1000 so keep your eyes on your mail box if that includes you. More exciting news very soon, we promise!
