  • I’m looking for guidance in building an enclosure for this and the TSL2561 Luminosity sensor (https://www.sparkfun.com/products/12055) and the ISL29125 RGB sensor (https://www.sparkfun.com/products/12829) combined. My students are building a a light metering device for the school greenhouse and they are trying to determine what transparent material to use. They have decided to test glass, acrylic and polycarb and I am trying to get a sense of what they will find out before thaey test. (it allways pays to stay ahead of your students if you can!) Can anyone tell me how these materials might attenuate the incident light? Does anyone have any suggestions for other suitable “window” materials? Any help would be appreciated.

  • Will a kit be coming, like a replacement for the RedBot?

  • Can I get on a mailing list for this lcd solution when it is available? I’m buying a classroom set of “some” dev board (bone, pi, pcduino, I dunno which yet) this summer. If I can do a touch screen AND have the Arduino capability, that could be the clincher…

  • Why no female headers?? I’ve been using Vernier sensors in my classes for a couple of years now. Most of my students have been using Vernier tech since middle school, so it makes a great intro to our design and analysis class. I call it the “Demystifying the Black Box” lesson. But we need access to the headers!
