    It’s May 2012 and I would not buy this item if you care about the temperature sensor – until they release a kit with an updated pc board. I couldn’t get mine to work, poked around and found the TMP36 sensor they used in the kit that was shipped to me is not a straight-up substition for the LM335 or whatever temperature sensor they used to use. I have no idea why they are shipping danger shield kits with the TMP36 without having fixed the pc board to accomodate the TMP36. I had to modify the temperature sensor circuit area to get it to work (remove the 10K resistor next to the TMP36, connect the TMP36 voltage supply pin to the danger shield voltage bus, and tack a 0.1 uf capacitor between voltage supply and ground as shown in the datasheet).

No public wish lists :(
