    Here is a quick demo of the folder creating I was talking about.

  • News - SparkFun April Fool's Pra… | last month

    My prank that I would like to do is to make some sort of circuit using an Arduino Leonardo (or any other atmega 32u4 based board), such as a little tone() based piano with little push buttons for the keys, or something like that. It doesn’t matter what project you make, because the whole point of your circuit is to get the person you are pranking to let you “power” the project with their computer’s USB port. Really we just want to plug it into their computer so we can send keystrokes through the cable and mess with their computer, so you want the project to be distracting so it keeps their eyes focused on your electronics, and not their computer screen. Just imagine the look on their face when they stop playing with your cool project to see that their desktop is now filled with empty folders called “New Folder (n)” (Win+D brings you to desktop, ctrl+shift+n creates a new folder in windows 7) or if you want to be really mean you can send a shutdown command into the command prompt window. I’m working on something like that now and I’ll upload a video for the contest if I have time. And for those of you who want to make one for yourself, make sure you use the serial monitor as a substitute for the keystrokes until you get your code entirely debugged. I didn’t do that and I ended up accidentally shutting down my computer several times before I got it fixed.

    I’m so sad I couldn’t get home in time to buy one of these while it was on the cyber monday flash sale. I wanted one at that price so bad. Oh well, it is still a pretty good deal without the extra 40% off, I will probably buy one somewhere down the road.

No public wish lists :(
