  • The feathers arent just an arduino clone. They have built in battery and charging support. which is great for small portable projects. The feather line also make it easy to add wings(their version of a shield).

    The charlieplexed led shields might not be ground breaking but its a product that wasnt out and now it is easily available.

    Both are great uses of the open source philosophy, taking a product and improving it or customizing it to suit your needs. There is nothing wrong with more choices being available when trying to design a product.

    I also like both companies, each one has its strengths and weaknesses. Sometimes one might have some better products, but the other might have fun events or sometimes a tutorial that really helps understand something.

  • except it doesnt lead to a problem. My taz has been running almost every day since I got it 1.5yrs ago from here. I even just added another taz and a mini to my fleet. Looking in to adding another Taz 5 soon also. The thing is rock solid for reliability.

  • They have always been that way. Neither one affects the performance of the machine.

  • How about a windows app?

  • Covering the haybales seems like a great solution. or maybe even colored plastic corrugated sheets attached to the bail sides. That would solve the bags ripping and blowing away issue.

  • Thanks a ton for making the fence lower! It was hard to take pictures and see through it. Id consider this the best change made!

  • Its great that the battlebots are back and wont be hidden off behind the building. But im sad that the avc course is way smaller. Although that will introduce more challenges for those with gps since the margin of accuracy is harder to deal with in a tight space

  • My favorite would the battery block. It feeds some nice DC voltage to the Edison and not any of that a/c stuff that Edison disliked. Also what good is a tiny board if it needs a cord plugging in to the wall. Free the cords!

  • Someone watched a bit too much Rocky Horror Picture Show last night

  • Yay the box wall is back!!! Woohooo. Is it real or just a green screen trick?

No public wish lists :(
