Things are going well, if a bit slow. :heh: I have been posting updates here: http://kickstarter.c...usb-stick/posts
The short version is: I recently discovered a nasty bug with Apple compatibility while testing the rewritten firmware, and that has kept me busy the past few weeks.
I expect the fix will be done this weekend, and the betas would then ship this week.

Depending on how the beta goes, I expect to ship the other Kickstarter units within a month, and I have extras on hand for jumping right into retail sales after that ^_^

Things are moving along. The beta is basically over, I plan to assemble and ship the remaining Kickstarter units next week. I'll be working on the website after that. They'll be sold through http://isostick.com when available; nothing there yet though.

If you'd like to be emailed when they're available for purchase again, you can sign up here: http://blog.elegantinvention.com/?p=38

Haha, got mine too! Strange, amazon isn't taking my money even when I'm throwing them at the screen. Is there a delay?

I dont know, there was no lag when I purchased mine but the twitter feed indicates there may be some lag updating.

Yeah, no worries though! Amazon is putting all the orders through and I'll be shipping them Monday, they're just holding the money for a week to make sure I actually ship them.
:fine:

Retail launch!
Oct. 20, 2012


Buy Now (Temporarily Sold Out)

Barely opened the gates and its already sold out.

Suggest posting a link to amazon under youre name

Something like
Buy isostick
isostick
Elegant Invention Blog
Cool 3D printing stuff: desktopFab

So are the one sold on Amazon the fixed version on the socket.

Last but not least, it has come to my attention that some of the microSD sockets can be a bit loose. This sometimes requires the card be reseated after spending some time in a pocket or backpack, for example. In extreme cases, the card may not lock in the socket at all.
This seems to be a quality issue with the socket. I'm sorting this out for future production

Good idea! Done! :cheers:

Indeed the socket issue has been worked out, now they use a high quality Molex socket. No more loose cards!

Price is USD$99, no microSD included. I'm allowed to sell, but I'm out of stock unfortunately! Working with the manufacturer to get everything ramped up for the next batch. Should be ready in 2-3 weeks, and this time it will be Fulfilled by Amazon. That means free shipping for Amazon Prime members (at least in the US, not sure how that works abroad) and faster shipping in general. :happy_dance3:
After that there should be a steady supply.

@Anders Tygstrup, they should be ready before the end of November still yet. They will be Fulfilled by Amazon, which does ship internationally, assuming they can sort out why I'm unable to activate FBA Global Export. :ermm:

EDIT: Well that was fast! They fixed it, so yes, they can be shipped internationally as well :good:

I am over in the UK, and I now have my ISO-Stick.

I was not expecting it that quick, so have not yet brought a large class 10 MicroSD yet.

Just a quick note for anyone one else in the UK that orders an ISO-Stick RoyalMail did charge me £20.20 in fees.

Regarding the ISO-Stick, it looks and feels very nice, but I do think it would be nice if the ISO-Stick did have an USB EndCap.

I hope to put this product to work very soon.

Best Regards.

I'm going to go ahead and tack on the end of this thread rather than start a new one; my question remains the same: ME WANT ISOSTICK, ME WANT ISOSTICK NOW! (or for Christmas!)

I work at Staples as a technician and HOLY HAND GRENADES (best P.C. replacement for what I wanted to say that I could come up with) this would be amazing!

Now, we aren't allowed to boot from any ISO files because of our corporate policy against using non-approved/provided tools, and we would in no way, shape, or form violate that. However, if we could, we would CONSTANTLY boot ISOs like:
Memtest, Windows install discs, OPHCrack, NT Offline Registry Editor, AV Rescue CDs, Diagnostic tools, UBCD, DBAN, Hiren's, etc.

I'd love to get my hands on one of these things!

And the USB 3.0 Passthrough idea made me squeal like a pubescent girl for Justin Bieber; my 1TB portable hard drive would be 42^42 times more useful!

Much love,
Overkill

Hah, fair enough ^_^
Well that 2-3 weeks mentioned before ended up doubling (as it tends to do). On the bright side, instead of just getting another 100 or so, there's a whopping 1000 on the way, and the capacity to produce many more as needed. Production is up and running in the US, with isosticks being made as I type this.

Anyway, tl;dr - I expect 1000 isosticks to be at Amazon's warehouse juuuuuust before xmas at the latest. The US manufacturer is just as excited as I am, and everybody's working to make it happen as soon as possible :thumbup:
