  • Hey Pete, Sorry if this has been suggested already, but I would like to see how what other hobbyists are doing with there homemade arduino's. Breadboard and through hole solder construction. I've got a servo controlled pan tilt with a laser module (switched from the controller using a transistor) running on my duemilanove. It drives the cat crazy, a lot of fun.

    Once I get a little farther with my project I wouldn't mind showing it off, what components were used and why. Then let you and the audience (hopefully positively) comment.

    Just a thought.

  • My parents bought me a Heathkit experimenters kit back 1971 (I was 11). I built every circuit, but could never get the am radio to work. For the life of me I could not understand why the little electrons drawn in the theory of circuit design seemed to be going backwards on transistors. If actual electron flow vs. classical electron flow was known back then, I would have become an engineer.

  • This was really fun. Not so much the contest, but making several wish lists for my next project over the last couple of weeks. I could only play on my lunch time and didn't win. Still I have a very good idea of what hardware I'll buy next time I turn in my cans.

No public wish lists :(
