  • I have one suggestion for ESD bags that you ship out to customers. How about using Velostat ESD bags?

    Velostat is manufactured by 3M, it also has an interesting piezo-resistance property which means it can be cut up and re-purposed to make flex/pressure sensors. Just a thought.

    BTW, I’ve started making these for one or two projects myself, and they do work. ;-)

  • Glad to see that SparkFun has come out with a new Arduino shield that integrates support for a rechargeable Li-Polymer battery. I’d love to see a product that supports other types of rechargeable battery, e.g. Li-Ion, Li-Fe-Po4.

    As for Robert’s shirt it is just fine IMHO. Robert is here to showcase the new products, not to audition for “America’s Next Top Model” – though if you want to do that Robert…follow your dream. ;-). As a photo-enthusiast I’d add that the green shirt contrasts well with the bright red background so it works for me.

No public wish lists :(
