  • Nice conference, Also here in the Netherlands, pretty close by. Too bad a ticket price ranges from €159 - €300 (student price). I can buy allot of electronics for that money… If i had it…

    In the Netherlands is everything close together, its possible to cross the country in a few hours. Have fun!

  • Nice video! Building something special for someone special…

  • Names for machines, that remembers me from the time I used to work for the dutch post as engineer, keeping the sorting machines running. Every giant sorting machine has a name that also serves like an acronym. All names are girl names, sometimes they took weeks to find a good name.

    Not that I’m good at it.. :P

  • You know that 100% off is already free? Also because X% off of X% discount are the same, would mean you’d like to pay double? I think they can arrange that!

    Time to make a wishlist… Labcoat, Shirt, mug…

  • Thank you for showing the projects. Time to make time and finish my own…

  • HI-Z output is not needed for muxing, writing low for the driving pins of high for the sourcing pins is sufficient. Also state-machines has nothing to do with the multitasking explained, state-machines could be used here to make more complex gestures.

  • Nice project. I like the laser-cut acrylics, please open-source it!

  • Put those arduino’s near the Van de Graaff generator…

  • Hack it! Play against a microcontroller…

  • You can now blink a LED better then you could before!
    Electronics is not about how much money you have to spend, its about creating something new.
    With the arduino it all changed to a skill that was just about the money, buy this board, buy that board and you have something special. And if you are out of I/O get another one…
    I never used an arduino because of the limited options. Also a breadboard and a bunch of DIP micro-controllers are much cheaper. And serenely not shield limited. Also… As development board i wouldn’t mind an arduino, but I’ve seen arduino’s abused to blink a led in eternity. My 555 can do that for 0,50$.
    This product does not make it easier. It makes people lazy. If they snap the board, they’ll still need to buy a solder iron, breadboard and more. And learn how to use it…
    Explore the world of electronics. Imagenation is the limmit.
    Currently working on a special deltabot project, that involves a 8bit chess-computer.
