    Take a bite of the Lillipad MP3 Player. It’s better than Rasberry Pi. Message T/Rx’ed.

    Desparate to get the new Jedi Mind Power helmet working in time for the next Sparkfun New Product Post, Victor turns to threats when trying to bend a piece of solder wire with his mind…“If you will not bend to my power, I will solder you!” or “We can do this the easy way or the hard way” or “Bend or Melt!” or “Bend or Burn!!”

    I wanted to build a simple tempertaure data logger with a Picaxe and temp sensor.Has anyone used this with a Picaxe processor? If so, some sample code sure would be appreciated to save me the time. Thanks.

    Bought 3 of these kits, one for me one for each of my boys. I designed a breadboard circuit that uses a picaxe 18m2 and a L293D motor controller to drive the motors. The picaxe also controls several sensors and LEDs. After hours of headache from it not working I’ve found I think I finally found the issue. The Picaxe has to have a different power supply than the motors. Each motor is drawing about 2 amps! It simply will not work when the Picaxe and motor controller are powered from the one 4 AA battery pack. Having to strap on a second 4 AA battery pack is going to be tricky, not to mention ugly. A simply and inexpensive robot project just got more complicated. Anybody else run into this problem?

    What is the green stuff on the back? Appears that I would have to scrape it off to solder on the crew terminals. Is that right?

    “I have to deliver this box to where?” Rising gas costs drive Sparkfun to find alternative methods of shipping.
