  • Not metric?! Whyyyyyyyyy???? Great otherwise.

  • Engineers take the “silly hats only” directive very seriously.

  • Behold the beginnings of the Lightbulb Morris Dance. There will be no survivors.

  • Any thoughts on making an SPI version of this?

  • Electro-shock therapy proved ineffective at getting the owls into a festive mood.

  • Is there any open linux software that works with this hardware?

  • It appears that the magnetometer is connected to the Atmega, as opposed to the aux input of the MPU? Does that mean it’s unable to use the magnetometer with the DMP that’s onboard the MPU?

  • Very NOT cool sparkfun. Kinda unethical even. If you were going to do this, it should have been an opt-in function, not something you did without asking your users. There are those of use who prefer not to have our info distributed to tracking databases, and now we’ve just been added to gravatar’s db without our permission.
    Adding gravatar to my blacklist, although the damage has now already been done. Definitely not impressed.

  • Awesome. Are you guys to keep the quiz running after free day? Not for any money prizes, but just for fun?

  • Were you running your XBee Pros at full power? This looks to be an interesting board, but I’m hesitant to get one unless it can fully power an XBee Pro.<br />
    <br />
    Overall things changes to this board that would really sell me on it:<br />
    <br />
    1. Power regulator that can guarantee to fully power an XBee Pro, and enough left over to drive some sensors.<br />
    <br />
    2. A serial switch like on the SparkFun XBee Wireless Shield. From the description on that shield “The serial pins (DIN and DOUT) of the XBee are connected through an SPDT switch, which allows you to select a connection to either the UART pins (D0, D1) or any digital pins on the Arduino (D2 and D3 default). ”<br />
    <br />
    3. Perf/Proto area<br />
    <br />
    4. Mounting holes! :D<br />
    <br />
    5. Reverse the sides that the usb/battery connector and the XBee socket are on.
