That might be an option far down the road. Currently it still needs much
more work. It's essentially a concept/idea at this stage.

Also ideally this will be easy to produce, even in quantities of ONE, so
that many people will be able to reproduce it on a minimal budget.
Possibly only the PCB being a bit more involved, but even that can be
done through itead or OSHPark.

For those who want one as a kit or fully assembled doing a run through
e.g. kickstarter or some other platform would be an option. That way
also most disappointing delays and such can be avoided.
