We were thrilled last week to see Firefly show up on Tim Bailey's radar at Wired's Geek Dad.

'We’re making the FireFly controller boards because it seems like a lot of projects repeat the same ten steps just to get started. If you’re going to launch a high altitude balloon with a camera on it (to take pictures of the curvature of the earth), build some remote sensing equipment, teach a class, or even launch a satellite you need the same basic components,' says Mike Doornbos. 'This system gets you right to step 10 in your project. Steps 1 through 9 are already done!'

Evadot.com is accepting pre-orders for Firefly, which also has a support home on Github
