Bad news for the April Ninja kit batch. Its been delayed again. We now expect them to ship on 21 May. We have upgraded shipping to USPS Priority for the US and DHL Express for Europe which are both relatively reliable 5 days services. People in other countries will get a discount coupon if we can’t find a reasonable shipping option.
You would think that things would be getting smooth by our fourth batch! Unfortunately not so much. A lot of the responsibility falls to us, assuming that delivery times would be similar to previous batches (not so much). This pushed back assembly into a national holiday week, and finally to make matters worse the temperature/humidity sensors failed QA on mass.
We were aiming to ship on 14 April, however it will now be around 21 May. We are paying for faster shipping for the US and Europe so with luck the kits will still arrive by the end of May only slightly later than they would have with standard shipping.
For future Ninjas outside Europe and the US we are investigating better options, if we can’t find a reasonable shipping option we’ll send you a discount coupon instead along with our apologies.
You will receive an email once your order has been dispatched with a Tracking and or delivery receipt number.
Please accept our deepest apologies. We understand that you may want to cancel your order, if so please contact firstname.lastname@example.org by the 10th of May.
Just wanted to announce that we've drastically improved the rules engine, including many new features and performance/reliability fixes. In no particular order:
We’re happy to announce that we’ve begun shipping the new Ninja Block!
If you have ordered the new Ninja Block you will receive a shipping confirmation email over the next few days (if you haven’t already received one).
Whilst you’re waiting for your new Ninja Block, be sure to join our forums!
Thanks for all your patience!
The Ninja Blocks Team
When we started taking orders for the new Ninja Block we stated a shipping date of “late December”. We did so because we were waiting on just one part and we were confident that we’d surely ship in late December. Maybe too confident, as it stands only the very first couple of orders will ship in December (i.e. Monday).
Our manufacturer has assured us that every single order will be dispatched by January 15.
We will shortly be taking orders for additional accessories, including an EU power socket.
As a thank you for your patience, we will send people on our mailing list a coupon code.
In the mean time we’ll get back to packing kits as quickly as possible!
If you happened to be playing with the rules engine recently you would have noticed some small, but important, little extras. Namely delay and toggle. These little boxes let you accomplish a few more useful things (like turning the light off a few minutes after motion turned it on) or use that handy little button we sent you to toggle a hard to reach appliance.
Anyway, this afternoon we got a little carried away in an empty room and this is the result.
Happy holidays everyone.
