  • Usually the Chinese made copies of Arduino are significantly cheaper, this one is only slightly cheaper. Is it made in the US? For only $5 why would we not want to support the Arduino project? You say that your board is more "stable" than the normal Arduino board too but I do not see how that was arrived at.

  • Is there still a problem to receive data from the XBEE on an Arduino UNO? I just cannot get anything to be received, though I can send fine.

  • Are their any dangers to be aware of... ie, when using this as a costume accessory... for example
    * rain on it or on the EL wire
    * dog biting it
    * if the wire is bent too far and cracks
    * cold (above freezing)

  • Are these really that loud? Is it the manufacturing that makes it so loud?

  • Super fragile, I broke it as soon as I put it back in the box it came in... thin hairline cracks along one side.

No public wish lists :(
