  • Any chance you could post a CAD drawing that would help me lay out a case to print?

  • Any chance you can offer this without the Jetson Nano for folks that already have one and don't need another?

  • Must not have lasted very long. I ordered on the 17th and did not receive any LEDs in my package.

  • I want to hang a bunch of Cloud Clouds in the Loveland CreatorSpace. I have the code loaded on both a Pro Mini and a Thing. I have 5 meters of WS2812 LEDs attached to the Pro Mini and I am using a 30A 5V supply that I had sitting around. There is about a 1/2 volt drop, but the LED Control sketch as no trouble lighting them up in the default Disco mode. The issue I currently have is wiring the serial connection between the two boards. It would be instructive if you could provide some details on that. The LED_Control side (Pro Mini) looks like it is using pins 8/9 via the AltSoftSerial library, based on the comments in the code, but I can't see what pins to use for the Thing side. I also made tried to replicate the Blynk bit, but it appears the IOS version of Blynk does not support the LCD control yet. I assigned all the virtual I/Os to match the code for the controls that are available, but it does not seem to talk to the Sparkfun Thing. I am planning to use the clouds as a visual feedback device for the IoT lab we are constructing as part of our Internet of Things special interest group. Any help would be deeply appreciated.

  • I am unable to get the Bluesmirf Silver to pair and connect to either a Macbook Pro or iMac running OS X 10.9.5. It does pair and connect to my iPhone and to a Windows 8.1 tablet. All of the tutorials I have found appear to be an older version of the Mac OS and the System Preferences -> Bluetooth dialog box has changed significantly. I have googled this to death, but I can't find a solution. I need this for the score reporting for the Nerdy Derby track that is going to be at the Denver Maker Faire in June. Any help would be appreciated. Thx!

  • The Loveland CreatorSpace booth at the Denver Mini Maker Faire will have a 60x36 pixel WS2812 LED display that uses Fadecandy boards, server and Processing sketches. So stop by and check it out.

  • I made it through the checkout process, used PayPal express, got my order confirmation, PayPal shows the charge ... but ... the order status went to "BO Arrived" and nothing shipped on Friday. I sent a query over the weekend to customer service and the response was that even though I had completed the order, they were oversold. So, I did not get one of the original offering. However, CS indicated that they made up a few boxes for people like me and it should ship out today.

    Sparkfun writes their own code for all of their web site, e-commerce included. It is a non-trivial thing to have such a limited supply, a time window for purchase (add-to-cart to payment-received) and a huge number of buyers.

    They have a few more options for this, one would be a lottery system that would provide a "ticket #" or "Coupon" kind of like the wrist-bands for concert tickets. Or, they could turn this into an auction/bid system with a window for bidding.

  • I just hooked my pcduino v2 up and I was expecting better performance. Web browsing is an exercise in frustration. Just scrolling the display is painful. It feels like the GPU isn't running anything. I was hoping to use this as a platform for running Processing sketches to drive some art work, but that is not looking likely at the moment. I had hopes that the 1G RAM would help over the Raspberry Pi or BeagleBone Black.

No public wish lists :(
