It's taking me ages to rewrite the OrbShield for the Arduino Leonardo (my hope being that the built-in USB hosting will make for a more stable USB experience and eliminate some of the problems we were seeing with the old OrbShields). Also, you can take some comfort in the fact that my new motherboard manifests the "buttons work but axes don't" problem, so hopefully I can diagnose better. So the rework is coming, but since Seeed ran out of kits, I've had a few (5-6) requests for a shield that I can't fulfil, and that bothers me. As such, I'm doing a small run myself.
This next run will be a "production process" run, and instead of going through Seeed, who honestly have been great (and I would recommend to anyone), I am going to try and do the production myself, mostly to learn about the whole process more. This also means I'll have more kits in hand and might be able to assemble and test some for people who want that.
This'll still take a lot of time (hoping a month or two), and in that intervening time I'll try to hack the leonardo a bit more (the good news is that I think the old-design shield will work on a leonardo, just ignoring the USB port). So hopefully there'll be some progress there, but the next two months are going to be pretty full of my transition overseas. So--don't hold your breath, but if you've been frustrated by the shortage of shields, at least know there's some relief coming.
Whew! Crazy times.
