how close are we? So close we can hardly stand it. The full line of Nau products will be available on nau.com at the end of this month [January 2007], and here in Portland we’re cranking to get everything ready for launch.

Those product images can be seen on flickr.com, for all those that are interested. To delve even deeper into the minds of Nau, check out their official blog, dubbed “The Thought Kitchen.�
