It's over now: my crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter, running for one month from April 04 - May05. It finished at 66% funding level. Or: nearly € 16,000
Which is, according to the Kickstarter rules, equivalent to: nothing.
Disappointing? Yes! ... Seeing a future? Yes!

Now I created instead a direct fundraising campaign (focusing on the main results, no Kickstarter involved, no external fees, no overhead)
As a first demonstration of expanding Spekwin32's capabilities towards spectrometer hardware control, I created a software prototype. This is able to acquire live spectra from all kinds of webcam-based Do-It-Yourself spectrometers and do most necessary transformations, also live.
Please get description, documentation & download from my new project website!
