  • Hah… I use that same crappy computer case shown in the video…

  • Seriously, this should basically be the size of the Pro Mini or perhaps a USB Dongle. And of course, they can provide or sell adapters to use existing shields. Let’s just all remember that the Uno is entended to be for development. We are expected to DIY the final product rather than use a bunch of Uno’s.
    IF Arduino wants to move into the current era, then they could redesign everything to be more like this… http://karuppuswamy.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2010/10/ez430-f2013-450x281.jpg
    The MCU board is tiny and removable, just add 3V3. I use the ez430 on a breadboard as well. The MCU itself isn’t direct competition to Arduino’s for various reasons… but there is plenty of room on the other side of that miniMCU board to add a few more features. Suprising what you can fit into 2K of memory!
    Anyway… I definitely second/third the suggestions to remove the oversized USB & Power connectors and while we are at it, maybe fix those gaps in the headers… but maybe we should be telling Arduino and not sparkfun.

  • Which is it, byte size or nibble?

  • LOL! Why aren’t more people laughing at that one?!<br />

    Oh well, good joke.
