    Hi Simon,

    Please give us detailed technical specifications,  implementation plan and how you plan to use the TAPAS board in your project.

    Also it will be great if you go through the safety instructions regarding the usage of the TAPAS board, because we discourage the handling of such a powerful board by children.

    Best Regards,

    Arun @Tapas team
