SparkFun made the trip northwest to check out Robothon 2009!
Arduino/STK500 bootloader tutorial and a basic Arduino beginner's tutorial. SparkFun is sponsoring Copenhagen Suborbitals! Someday, a Logomatic in space...
Once again, electronic gadgetry gave SparkFun an excuse to launch stuff through the air - this time, it was pumpkins! We're also announcing a new contest - the Hack-o-Lantern competition!
It's the little things in life that get us excited! We get a new sign! Also, new flat 6DOF Razor, BeagleBoard, new EasyDriver version, custom serial LCDs, 1Watt high power modem (40 mile range!), Bluetooth dongle, microSD reader, air sensors, and microSD sniffer. !.
New ST micro LPR530AL dual axis gyro breakout boards, and ADXL345 evaluation board with Arduino/FAT32 combo, soldering class on Sept. 30th, smart card socket, and a powerful new GS407 GPS receiver module.
I love Sci-Fi (Rainbows End). With this contact lens, we're one small step closer to a fully augmented reality.
Pete's lawn needed watering but the sprinkler was throwing half the water onto the street and side walk. With an Arduino, a pot, and a servo controlled value, he was able to control where the sprinkler head delivered water.
A new tutorial on getting a kegerator to tweet, and new products! A full rotation servo, HMC5843 magneto breakout, dual axis gyro, DC and Car power adapters, 16MHz resonator, and an RGB LED light cube kit.
