  • Dude “We followed the tutorial to a T. I don’t know what when wrong. Lets pretend It worked and smile.”

  • sweet. more hardware level access. I can’t wait till they are back in stock.

  • Despite all you wish. You can never get the Genie back in the box. We all have tried. Good April fools joke. I had to take a second look.
    Just remember every time you see the blue smoke Genie pop out make a wish. I always forget to. For some reason all that comes to mind is a four letter word.
    So I will add this to my wish list.

  • Thats what I am talking about. Well put Like H. The best I can do is tell you to search “piezo energy technologies”

  • Makes me wonder. I want to mount some accelerometers and a gyro on toy rifle. And see if it could control wireless servo mounted paintball gun. Even a wireless cam with a little screen for a gun site. Then I can swing it and use it like a real gun but mount it remote locations.
    It would be pretty bad on a low price steady base like the ones that got posted a few weeks ago on the new products highlights. With a airsoft gun.
    Has anyone hacked at the guns that Xbox 360 or playstation use? Whats in them? Cool post. gave me some ideas.

  • I am still a little confused about the advantage of the IC on the board. From my understanding I can use this breakout with A couple super caps. And I Can hook up some of the mini Solar cells to this IC and it will balance out there input power? Then I will get a steady voltage/current output? Even with the solar cells output bouncing current and voltage?

  • Wow. A lot of bickering. But a grate set of post. I think of the these dev boards as training wheels. It pretty daunting to ride the first time without them. But those few who jump foward and start building there own boards & designing there own circuitry will be hooked.
    And its a plus having new and fresh blood driving this as a hobby and not just a job.

  • Very cool.<br />
    In my mind the most fulfilling hacks are like this. Very simple, interface-able with everything and can change lives. I would like to know what question or answer came up to get this idea started. Very Inspiring Grate post.<br />
    “The phone is a good start. But what else can you use bluetooth to hook up to?” “TV remote, Lights, Stero system, laptop, even an xbox or game console.” I can make a bluetooth to universal Ir remote. Even a bluetooth RC car. You could imagine a kid who has never been able to drive an rc car before with something like this. All from the same device. <br />

  • Its like any project. Make one part at a time and test them. Then throw um all tougher and do a final test at the contest. Ive only had a few projects work out of the shoot. Its going to be a good time.

  • This is f—in sweet. Ive already got ideas cranking through my head. Most of the stuff I make brakes already. But to build something that is going to destroy it self. Thats an Idea.
    Thanks for batch pcb and getting twice the boards I order. Im going to need um.

No public wish lists :(
