    This little gem has been a part of our kits for years now but now we will be selling it separate as well! Note, programming level required: master.

    This week we present the ArduBird, a Sparkfun microprocessor disguised as a bird!

  • Product DEV-11225 | about 5 months ago

    Is the license able to be installed onto multiple computers or just 1?

    YEA!!! and for those who never saw it, another awesome Sparkfun tutorial about Python over serial matched with a GPS Python + GPS.

    Also great for getting started in Python.

    Great article! I highly recommend messing around with Python some for all. I first made some very basic programs with it ~2 years ago, and even made a program that pressed the arrow keys for those Google Olympic doodles; ex. Hurdles.

    Then just this past summer I wrote a program that would mimic entering student usernames and info into the WPA2 Enterprise login system (imported data into arrays from CSV file and performed the necessary key strokes). The tech teacher at my high school liked it so much (partially cause he had to enter all 150+ new students every year manually), the school paid me for working on it. Also as a way of adding a GUI, i wrapped it up with a Just BASIC interface. So yea, just a little bit of knowledge in a cool language like this can help you out a lot.

    Now just need to learn multithreading stuff.

    So here is my challenge for you, these are surplus items and you need to use them to make our company more marketable!

    What is the best way to have the LCD off while still using the arduino with it; would it be to just use the cls() function from the library? I plan to do some automation with this and I don’t need to leave the LCD running at all times, figured I would just use a wake-up button.

    sensors around your wrist or ankles to measure body movement (bracelet as a bonus)

  • News - According to Pete - Spect… | about 11 months ago

    How about a more general press sensor such as one that can say be under someones foot and a way for the sensor to do multiple things such as light an led when it senses pressure, also maybe add a way someone can connect their own micro-controller up to it and basically sense when it is pressed so they can do what they want.
