#AdaBox is sold out!

Well that was fast! We capped the number of subscribers on our first round of AdaBox and we’ve sold out in about twenty-four hours.  We’ll make sure to have more for the next round so sign up and we’ll notify you when we’re ready to start taking subscriptions again.

In the mean time, we have a detailed FAQ on the AdaBox page but we also thought it would be a good idea to answer some of the questions we’re hearing the most 🙂

Why is AdaBox continental U.S. only?

This is our first subscription service and, to keep things simple for the first round, we decided to provide free UPS ground in the continental U.S. for all AdaBox orders.  This way we can make sure we provide a great customer experience to the first round of subscribers.

Will AdaBox ever ship internationally?

Maybe! After we get through the first round, we’ll take a look and see what we can do.  No guarantees but we’re listening to requests and are trying our best to make it happen.

Why is there a cap on the number of subscribers?

We wanted to make sure that we could build a great customer experience around AdaBox and then expand from there.  This was really, really popular – so thank you! – and we’re going to try and find ways to accommodate more subscribers for our second box.

How much is it?

$60 a quarter, which includes free UPS Ground to the continental United States.

Will all the stuff in the video be in my AdaBox?

Nope! Some of the items in the video might be in your AdaBox, other things won’t (like watermelon or The Art of Electronics).  The mystery is part of the fun.

  1. This is a very smart idea. Also very awesome. Can’t wait to get my first AdaBox! I plan to work on it with my 8 year old grandaughter. You go ladyada and co.

  2. Well, I’m disappointed. This follows the old adage: You snooze, you lose.
