Axon II documentation released

Its had huge delays. First, Atmel sold out of ATmega640s (I bought out the world supply, again), and it took them 2.5 months to make more.

Now my assembler is being lame, and is on week 9 when he promised to finish in only 4 weeks. So yea, almost 3.5 months delay and counting . . .

He promised me he'll have it done this week, so I'll probably start selling Saturday.

I'll have you guys know it took 6 straight hours on my Intel 1.8 GHz dual core laptop to render that 3D video. Not to mention another 12 hours of rendering until I got it the way I like. And my laptop has a huge fan cooler thingy underneath to speed it up about +30%.

It took me like 2 days to compose that soundtrack . . . I'm definitely not a musician! :P

Set it to High Resolution and full screen for a full experience 8)

Oh and don't forget the other videos:

Mine already shipped. I'm checking the mail box every day like a kid waiting for the toy he got from eating lots of cereal and mailing in the UPCs! My mech Nostromo thanks you for his soon-to-be-delivered brain.
