  • I was pretty excited about this because there are a couple of instructables that recommend it. I ordered one from Kinetica, it took TWO WEEKS to arrive. I panicked because I had a deadline and got one overnight from Sparkfun, with Saturday delivery, for about $60. I can’t complain about SF customer service because those guys were awesome. I ordered about 4 pm on Friday in Arkansas, and it was on my porch before I woke up Saturday morning.

    BUT, this thing, I don’t know. Could not get it to work and not really arduino-saavy enough to debug it. No documentation on how to assemble, although after you look at it for a while, there’s only one way to assemble it. After fooling around with it for a week I finally took it apart and about half the connections had come unsoldered. I was able to resolder successfully but it was not easy. I have been messing around with this thing for two weeks and I can’t get any headway. I’m about to resort to using a servo to press the play button on the ipod. Should have done that in the first place, would have been way faster.

  • This worked great for me, thanks!
