Delivery update on Synthia + Clockstar changes
We started shipping out Synthias this week.
We're working double shifts, producing them as fast as we can.
We estimate to have them all shipped to you in the next 7 - 10 days. You'll start getting tracking numbers to your email inbox as we ship out the orders.
Here are a few behind the scenes photos:
Thanks to your amazing help and support, CircuitMess STEM Box was funded almost two years ago. Since then, we have successfully fulfilled five unique STEM Boxes Spencer, Jay-D, Wheelson, ByteBoi and Chatter.
While developing these products, we had a lot of fun, and we learned so much. None of that would be possible without the support from all of you amazing backers! So, thank you for everything!
Clockstar was scheduled as the seventh STEM Box we'd fulfil, but unfortunately, we had to change this.
Clockstar's fulfilment will be pushed to a later date, and the seventh STEM Box will be a brand new product called Circuitpet.
This is the current STEM Box shipping order:
Why are you making this change?
The main issue we faced during the last year and a half was the ongoing semiconductor shortage and general supply chain problems.
We'd develop a product just to figure out that a critical component such as a processor completely disappeared from the market.
As a solution to this issue, we decided to switch the shipping order while we continue to search for a solution to the chip sourcing issue.
So, Clockstar will be shipped as the eighth box, right after Circuitpet.
Circuitpet is a product we're very proud of and are sure it will be a worthy and fun replacement for Clockstar in the seventh STEM Box.
CircuitPet - build your own Tamagotchi
Circuitpet is a DIY virtual pet game similar to Tamagotchi.
With Circuitpet, you'll bring your own digital pet duck to life. Just like with any other pet, you can play with it, take care of it, love it and help it grow!
This pet duck is actually a mechanical duck that you have to keep alive and safe from rust. To do that, you'll play six preloaded minigames and collect XP to help your pet grow and keep it happy and safe from rusting.
Circuitpet will teach you about always-on technology, RTC (real-time clocks), coding, microcomputers, electronic components and much more.
Circuitpet is equipped with:
- 160x128 display
- Li-Po battery
- piezzo buzzer
- four pushbuttons
- flashy LEDs
We're looking forward to you all raising your own pet duck with Circuitpet and learning about new technological topics along the way.

Stay tuned for more updates!
