Yes, the ribbon / camera issue has been resolved, thank you very much!
I've been doing research on ways to leverage additional ports for the sensors, as my daughter and I are using Python, not Scratch, to do the projects. I'm sure we'll be able to figure it out.
I get that this is meant to be an introductory experience building step-by-step, and I think you have done a good job with that.
That said, the kickstarter page clearly states:
The first month, you’ll get the GoPiGo robot car, and every month after that you will be assigned a mission to accomplish! Each month, your GoBox will include a new sensor and step-by-step instructions on how to accomplish a mission -- complete with illustrations and links to helpful videos.
Thus, mission two should have included a sensor, and it did not. Hopefully all future missions will include a sensor as promised, and you might consider including an extra sensor in a future mission to bring the sensor total up to 11 as promised by the kickstarter page. To me, a key value of this project is getting a bunch of different sensors for my daughter to experiment with. To be honest, I was quite torn between simply investing in a GoPiGo and buying sensors a la carte versus backing the GoBox. I was really beginning to regret the decision to back the GoBox after receiving mission two as, at that time, it felt like my money would have been better spent on simply getting a GoPiGo. Adding in the delay before getting Missions three and fou, it really wasn't a very positive initial experience.
That said, I am optimistic about the rest of the missions. My daughter is excitedly experimenting with the sensors included in missions three and four and is enjoying using the googly eyes and pipe cleaners to transform her robot into a wheeled shark After what I consider to be a rough start, things are certainly looking up and we are anxiously awaiting mission five!
