Tiger Direct now has the Novint Falcon for $99. Only took a little over a year from release for the price to finally drop to the <$100 level they promised 2 years before launch. :D

So, if you had interest in helping out with the LibNIFalcon project but didn't want to throw the cash down, well, now it's less cash to throw down. LibNIF is cranking right along, the C++ version is nearing the first milestone, and we've now got what will hopefully be a much more stable kinematics model in the works.
