  • Just an FYI this product is $179 from Digilent once you register an account and verify it with your school email. I'm a student so every penny counts!

  • Wow...I made something almost identical to this last year. I wonder if my youtube video of my hand provided any inspiration for this project.
    I'm only 16 now when I built my animatronic hand project I was 15
    www.youtube.com/halo2maniaccc and you will see my projects click on the animatronic hand video and you will see what I made.

    I seem much older in my videos with a deep voice but I'm not kidding I was 15 when I made that video.
    I used a bluesmirf, an arduino, flex sensors, servos, and much more hardware very similar to what this kid did. Also several people have created instructables based off of what I did in my video. If he used any of these tutorials I hope he cited them!

  • I had to order this when I saw it....probably gonna make something that generates barcodes as a sort of "key" for a project. Now all you guys need to get is a fixed barcode scanner something like this
    On a more technical note
    If I use a 9v power supply instead of a 5v do I have to use a level shifter on the serial? In the example code it said 9v power supply and nothing about level shifting. So I am assuming not but just wanted to double check!
    Keep the awesome products coming Sparkfun!

  • and the FedEx sled dog team! You can't have one without the other....

  • This is a fantastic product! Its been a while since I bought it but figured I would comment on it now. The range is superb with the external antenna and I have had no problems transmitting or receiving stuff from long distances. Setting these up is like a walk in the park, simple commands and documentation. Word of warning don't solder to hot when you attach headers do a low temperature soldering quickly.

  • You can view videos of this motor in action as well as the easy driver and even an adapter for the shaft of this motor here.

  • This antenna is a very good alternative to the ceramic chip antennas. It is a nice size and the build quality is very nice in comparison with some cheap antennas that I have used in the past.
    All in all its a great product for a great price!!!

No public wish lists :(
