  • I was going to spend 61.60 USD along with getting this box. I had all the other items in my cart and when I entered my info and submitted it, I get the infamous “OUT OF STOCK” BS… Wow.

    Now, I will spend nothing and save me some money and laugh at the new posts in a week or so when everyone gets their “junk”…. :)

    Not sore, just bummed I couldn’t give you my money.

  • Here i am in front of everyone introducing myself at “The Island For The Misfit Toys Annual Meet And Greet”.

  • See, i am wearing the monkey on my back with the spelling, almost like ding and dents.

  • Attention Sparkfun Employee’s,

    If you come in late for more than once a month, you will where what you bring to the business. Either suit of monkey business.

  • I got one of those mems boards too. connected it to arduino and keeped getting an analog values of 508-510. Once i put my finger on top of the board and pressed down it would go as high as 535. Hummmm.

  • Nice Video Dave,

    It origionally took me about a couple of hours to be confident to just get the blink example going especially since i didn’t even know what an LED was. Have had the arduino mega 1280 for a couple of years and started on a long journey since then. The only thing that i could do was plug the computer into the wall. Now, I have made my first autonomous object avoidance robot, and recently made (last night) made my first laptop wireless controlled robot using the Xbee modules, arduino, XCTU program, and a motor shield. I am still learnig, and will continue to learn but that is the nature of doing things and making things. Just want to say “Thanks Sparkfun, you put in a SPARK in my neurons” and thanks Dave, this is a video that is long overdue for sparkfun. Now, get back to work on more examples, “just make a variety of examples” for a variety of projects, especially for all of your products. Sorry, being selfish. Thanks again.

  • How about coming to Indianapolis????

  • Reply to my own post: I can now say that it does work with the mega 1280. Tested the blinky code myself. Used the explorer too with XCTU. Also works with the Freeduino as well. Thanks sparkfun.

  • I have seen some older post that the arduino mega 1280 does not work with this retail kit. I have a mega 1280 and a freeduino that i had planned to use with this shield. Am i wrong, did something get updated. Does this work with the Arduino mega 1280 and the Freeduino 328??? What mods would you have to do get either working, if any at all?
