    Now if only Paul ( and Brian (Embedded Man/ would get together and make Bit Whacker work on the Teensy++2.0, that would be very cool! Then we could have a BitWhacker with lots of 5V I/O.

    If it sold so poorly that it was retired over a year ago, why bring it back as a SIK? This would be good if it was Bluetooth instead of wired.

    I’d say it’s highly likely these are el-cheapo Chinese copies, not the real original HP ones. If you look at the mouldings they don’t look as elegant (not uniform) as HP gear was in those days, also the way they are cut-off on the ends looks like it’s cut off further up the bubble than the datasheet shows. Maybe I’m wrong, but I’d be very surprised indeed if these turned out to be actually made by HP. I recall a friend’s dad having a gold watch with these in it, might have been a HP, can’t recall. You had to press a button to get it to light up, so as not to drain the batteries.

    Yes, indeed I would think far less than 50mA would. It’s already been proven that a 1.5V AA can stop the heart, it’s all a matter of where the voltage is placed (across what points) and hence how much current actually flows through the heart.

    So when will the BrownTooth and YellowTooth board be out? Hmm, somehow just doesn’t have the same ring to it, does it? :P

    Toni - On ebay you can get a chemical cheap (Chinese) that supposedly dissolves the epoxy over on-board chips like this. They actually market it for that, so might be of interest if you play more with these. I’d almost forgotten about those sorts of game things!

    Hammond and a few other places do make cases that have battery holders built-in for AA (and I think AAA might be available also), so if you need a case as well, that might be a good choice. I’d really like to see an AA with a ‘top’ opening case (i.e. one that allows access to the full length of the battery) rather than the ‘side’ opening like this one. Something like that could be used in many types of enclosures, including plain old Zippy-Box type cases.

    Could you possibly give a link for that LCD serial backpack firmware? Thanks

    What then would you recommend? I like Altium and it seems to flow reasonably well, though some things (can’t think of specific examples just at the moment), don’t seem to have kept pace with the general software world. I’ve tried Eagle and it just seems so darn foreign compared with other tools I’ve used.

    +1 for making these normal stock.

No public wish lists :(
