Other Info

Concerning the pricing, we are awaiting for final quanity before the definive pricing. For information the last run was $99 to $129 ( + Shipping )
Concerning the finish, Series III "Jet black" is darker than Series II's "Black Mirror" ( Jet Black is more akin to iPhone 7 Jet black )

Only thing I could ever wish for (Which im not even sure if it's possible) is fitting a battery and bluetooth compatible pcb in that thing so you can really make it a pocket macropad. Will cop nonetheless
