For the early adopters of the original ColorHug I’ve been offering a service where I send all the newer parts out to people so they can retrofit their device to the latest design. This included an updated LiveCD, the large velcro elasticated strap and the custom cut foam pad that replaced the old foam feet. In the last two years I’ve sent out over 300 free upgrades, but this has reduced to a dribble recently as later ColorHug1’s and all ColorHug2 had all the improvements and extra bits included by default. I’m going to stop this offer soon as I need to make things simpler so I can introduce a new thing (+? :) next year. If you do need a HugStrap and gasket still, please fill in the form before the 4th January. Thanks, and Merry Christmas to all.
