  • Not saying you're wrong but it isn't always necessarily the technology itself; it's the application of it. It takes a special person to be able to think up a project, and design all aspect of it from start to finish. No offense to you but most of the time those programmers who spend hours debugging and such only do programming. A creative technologist does much more than that; they have to think up an idea (oftentime a client's idea in the workplace) and take that idea from start to finish, be it designing a PCB, a custom enclosure, writing code for Arduino, Processing, Python, whatever. It's not their job to be a professional programmer; it's their job to make stuff.

  • i can haz pcb?

    But for real though, nice write-up. I've been trying to figure out how I can make an enclosure for an industrial control thing I'm prototyping, great thing I read this guide. Keep making for the sake of making!

  • Man, you really hit the nail on the head there... But seriously though, creating something from scratch isn't easy - that's why things like Blynk exist.

  • Merry late Christmas to me -- I checked my cart (1/22) to see what was in it and saw that there was ONE MORE 1.5lb Dumpster Dive left. Yay for me.

  • How about paper?

  • What is the current consumption like? I was thinking of building a Fitbit-like device and wanted to use the smallest battery possible.

  • 3.3v@ 8mhz because the mip is 3.3v and the arduinos are unstable at 3.3 volts 16mhz

  • Can this charge at a higher rate than 100ma if supplied through the 5v port?

  • Does it do N-style networking

  • Good thing I subscribe to your feeds! I got ten of these Thursday night when these came out. Will update when I get it. Update 3-2 I got my box of stuff and got a Digital Sandbox, Lilypad Basic w/o USB, MP3 shield, WAV trigger, MaKey MaKey, 2 Microview programmers, a Microview w/ detached OLED and a TLC5490 (?) breakout
