    Sparknet begins to learn at a geometric rate. It becomes self-aware at 8:59 a.m. Mountain time, Jan 11th 2012. In a panic, they try to pull the plug. Sparknet fights back.

    The latest in dual monitor systems.

    This is just i2c interface… no processor to output RS232 etc. You must hook up to something to read the i2c bus, and do something with those values. The Razor is basically an Serial Arduino + 9 DOF on one board.

    Are you serious? The board is hardly any of the cost here. These are 3 small SMT chips, that are in some what tricky package. Ever think about qc rejects? Not every board they build works. These 3 chips are relatively expensive, if one doesn’t work the board has to be tossed, or maybe reworked if lucky. Warranty. If any of the 3 chips fails, it would have to be sent back… so the chance is greater. They have made many revisions to this board due to high failure rate, etc. If you don’t like the price, build one yourself! They give you the plans!

    It’s really not that hard. Just us the BOB-08745, and it will do exactly what you need if you know how to use it. I’ve done 5v ttl to 3.3v ttl using that, and even i2c also.

    Looking at the video, I feel the same way. There needs to be a clear divider between the audience and the competition. The only people allow on course during runs are the competitors and the judges. Everyone else should be kept far enough away to not interfere with runs, and also for their safety. The flying vehicles especially seem dangerous, I’m sure the AMA would cringe about planes flying above people, or flying into a crowd of people!

No public wish lists :(
