  • I use a Dremel to grind down the lock tabs on the micro connector. This will prevent ripping the USB terminal and traces from boards like the Fio and Lilypads. Need to be very gentle with micro.

  • Nice alternative to the Fio if you’re using RF other than XBee.

  • Great board with some simple but extremely convenient differences from the original Fio. Even if you don’t use XBee this is a great board for sensor networks.

    I just question the decision to use a micro-B connector, especially when it’s the programming interface. Extremely fragile. They will break at some point.

  • Sure.

No public wish lists :(
