Thanks for the praise. Jim Brain has offered to build the production
version. However, the design is not done yet. We also had some supply
problems with the ATmega32U2 as you may have seen in the presentation.
However, Digi-key is now showing these in stock again so that shouldn't
be a problem.

There won't be any pre-release hardware for sale, but you can build one
yourself using the plans for the USBKEY board if you're in a hurry.
