  • Hey Emcee, any update on the commenter submitted April Fool’s Prank suggestion contest you guys had lined up?

  • Maybe this time, people saw what came in the last one and realized most of it was useless to them so they passed? Of course, that only benefits those of us that can use whatever might be working! I did notice things went noticeably slower this time around. What would have happened had one checked out then made another separate order for a second one? There was plenty of time to do so this time around.

  • I knew that flight and hot rod deal on www.hotwire.com was too good to be true!

  • With Halloween coming up quickly, you could easily integrate this with some LED lights and come up with just about anything you want. I could build off the stick figure costume I did (http://www.instructables.com/id/LED-Stick-Figure-Costume/) and instead, use different LED strips, such as addressable ones, and do a Star Wars getup. With a couple of push buttons and an accelerometer, you could control a lightsaber, with full sound effects when you wave it around, when it hits, it could flash, etc. You could even use the buttons to have the lightsaber extend and retract like in the movies. In the dark, it would be pretty awesome looking.

  • The link to the B+ and the microSD card reader are both broken.

  • No problem! Good to hear it’s still happening regardless of the late date as I know how things get when it’s busy. Silly projects are always fun to see.

  • Bingo! That’s what I’ve been curious about. It’s still only a few weeks compared to how many in a year but it’s been a while without any word about it so I figured I would just check to see if that fell by the wayside!

  • Whatever became of the April Fools contest result for the “one project from the original announcement’s comments” that you guys were going to build and announce? I only ask because I thought I had a decent idea that had a chance and if I’ve got a horse in the race (however slow it may be), that’s enough to keep me hopeful! I know Emcee Grady was the one that was heading that up from all the posts that were made.

  • Completely off topic but any progress on that final April Fool’s day prank winner? It’s been a couple of months but I know it’s busy putting together yet another project! I have too many of those extra projects sitting around!

  • Not sure where to ask this but any update on the final April Fools contest winner from the comments?

No public wish lists :(
