One thought on “First Look: The Eigenlabs Eigenharp Pico

  1. Actually its already shipping, I got mine on Friday. Its just they have a lot of pre-orders so they change the date on the website to reflect when you are likely to receive your Pico if you order now.

    My initial thoughts: its awesome, not perfect and the software could be better but it works.
