  • This is a big problem I have with lots of electronic kits. They do very little to explain how circuits work. In fact I’m more comfortable with an Arduino board than I am a transistor. I can fathom how logic works, and so long as I have instructions as to how to hook up a sensor or whatever I can make things work.

    But figuring out how to make an led blink with regular electronic components I have no clue.

  • In fact cutting out the nand gate and putting in a pro mini would be a very worthy upgrade. Of course you would then need a new “project booklet”

  • Wow this great. I remember several years ago you guys made one with an arduino built in as a concept. You should totally do that, with say an arduino pro mini, to make it a little easier to use.

  • I really really like this. I’m hoping you can find a way to make a simpler one with lower cost. Like one with Arduino pro mini for $15

  • Thank you for the tutorial. I’ve always not wanted to deal with the chemicals, but you make it look easy.

  • I am sad that the new multi meter isn’t charcoal black, with a yellow case around the outside.

  • It’s hard to pick just one. but I’m a big fan of user interaction, so I would pick the OLED panel. Not only does it have the display, it looks like its got some buttons that would be useful for input, and picking things off a menu.

    Perfect, so I can have more than 1 entry in my “Dr. Evil” device. Sample menu options could be:
    * Fire a fricken “laser” from the moon.
    * Request 1 million, I mean billion dollars from the government
    * re-paint fluke multimeters being imported into the country with a SparkFun red border.

  • Oh how I wish you had a sale on ATSAMD21G18 boards.

  • This is awesome! Would have loved to have had this for a project I was working on a few years ago.

  • Oh it’s so hard to get the middle of your marshmallow melty. I’ll have to build one of those!

No public wish lists :(
