  • I buy everything from Sparkfun. But I do wish you guys came up with this: http://www.adafruit.com/products/2000. Was hoping you’d have it here too, don’t want to buy somewhere else!

  • Perfect form factor for cool little LED projects. Did this one in a day: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=beaXHy3TiCc&feature=youtu.be

  • +1 on the serial interface!

  • Ok, I don’t get it. This was possible (same quality, same sound library) with the SPO-256 chip that Radio Shack sold over 20 years ago for $29.95. http://www.futurebots.com/spo256.pdf
    You’d think there’s something better by now? Better sound/voice processor somewhere?

  • The Gertboard (http://www.bit-tech.net/news/hardware/2012/08/09/gertboard/1) has just been announced and orderable for the Raspberry Pi!!

    Looks like a GREAT board, more comprehensive then any breakout board I’ve seen for Arduino yet. AND has an onboard Arduino to boot!

    Although it’s $50, with a Pi about $95 total. It’s really not that far off from a Uno R3 and an Ethernet Shield ($80). Since most of my projects I need an Ethernet shied as well. I think the Pi with the Gerboard is an excellent hybrid solution with many more capabilities, and for only about $15 more.

    I REALLY hope Sparkfun starts carrying these products - Would like to buy U.S. vs. U.K

  • Me thinks someone should be thinking about a new form factor for Arduino and the Shields soon!

No public wish lists :(
