FAQ

Maybe we've already answered your question...

Soon!  We’re about to release our airplane design kit (Stay tuned for a special beta tester deal!) and we’re working on an awesome new robot kit for Cornell University’s Summer College program.

We love ideas!  (We’re called “Idea7” for a reason.)  If you’d like to submit an idea, we’d love to hear it.  All of our kits will be developed and shared as open source hardware under a CC-BY-SA 4.0 licences so make sure you’re comfortable with that before sharing your idea.  We’ll soon setup an easy way for you to share ideas.  Until then, if you’d like to share an idea with us, contact us below.

We sure do.  We order some components from international suppliers of course, but we do our manufacturing in our hometown Georgia facility.

We take several measures to ensure our website is safe and secure.  For example, everything on our whole site is served via “https” which is an encrypted protocol that helps protect against “man-in-the-middle” attacks.  This is only one simple layer in our security strategy which we frequently update based on industry best practices to ensure our site and your data are adequately protected.

That said, no website can be completely secure.  Personally, we believe the only 100% security is found in John 3:16.  😉

To seek the…best kit ever.

Idea7 Blue of course.

It depends, African or European?
