So, I just saw a post on Make: magazine’s blog about the BugBase not shipping with 802.11.

Does this affect the price?

Hi there,

The price is not affected – in fact, we’ll be including a free "von Hippel" module with every Hiro P, and we’ll also be making the wifi module available at production cost.

We’ll also be extending the early adopter discount for those who prefer to wait for the wifi-enabled BUGbase.

Hope this answers your question.

Best, -m

For even more information, Peter (our Founder/CEO) put up this blog post:

It goes in detail the reasons why.

Thanks for the inquiry and keep ‘em coming.

Since it was mentioned that the Early Adopter discount is being extended for 30 days, is that a quiet announcement that the wifi enabled ‘bases are going to be available for order within that timeframe?

Unfortunately no – when we get the wifi into the base we won’t be very quiet about it! :)

Wifi is definitely a must. It opens up the world of web enabled apps which is huge.

Any word on this yet? I’ve been waiting to place my order for months but am still waiting until it has integrated WiFi.

We're working on a wifi module that is nearing the pre-manufacturing phase of completion. While it's not integrated wifi, when we have a concrete date for release, you can be sure there will be fireworks and confetti.
