  • What happens when there is no replacement product?? The Simblee has been EOL, NOTHING else can do what it did. I'm pissed!!

  • I love the Qwiic distance sensor the and accuracy. Can you make one that will measure up to 5 meters at about 2mm accuracy? I REALLY need one capable of measuring at that distance.

  • I've looked through all the web pages, docs, etc and still can't figure it out. How can I send data from the Simblee to an Arduino board?

    I want a simple app that is basically a number pad 0-9 just like a phone to send number values to the Arduino. I just want to tap the numbers on a phone, then press a programmed Enter key(via Simblee app), this would go to the Simblee, from there to the Arduino, from there to my display.

  • SF - Can you make a smaller breakout with a mounting hole? Perhaps something with half the number of GPIO pins and 2 holes so I can screw it down.


  • Nice work! Q: Where did you mount/put the power supply? Q: How did you link all the different cabinet segments together? Q: With 5 LEDs tied to each buck, did you just tie all of those back to the single laptop power supply?

    Suggestion: Instead of a manual switch, why not add an Arduino Pro Mini (or something else) and use a PIR as the switch. Just wave your hand under the cabinet and poof turn them all on. I did this for a headboard light, works nice.

  • Just so you know, Valentine's Day is not an actual 'holiday'. But don't tell my sweetheart. ;)

  • You guys sell lots of little items. What's the best way to submit new ideas for newly designed products, items for you to carry available only from China(larger/more variety 7-segment displays), etc?

    Also, I'd REALLY be interested in seeing your 'Come learn' events hit the road and come to our neck of the woods. (Upstate NY) Any thoughts about that?

  • I'm rather disappointed you'd even bother to write about this. I visit sparkfun.com to learn about and buy electronics, not read an angry female's rant about a doll's acquiescence to men about the use of technology.

  • I'd REALLY like to see an antenna or reader with 2-3 foot range. Possible?

  • About how long would that EL stay lit with that little inverter?

No public wish lists :(
