    JST battery connectors are good… but flexible magnetic ones that can safely* be added to some of the smaller lipos would be nice. Hit-up the link for an example in micro / Uberlite RC airplanes.

    The transition between the battery tabs and the connector don’t last very long… and the method that they use to attach the magnets (read: heat) greatly reduces their potential. A flexible solution that is friendly to adhesives on the magnet side that can be either clipped or soldered onto the tabs would provide added and essential strain relief.

    Oh… and the polarity of the magnets is matched to VCC/GND.

    Are the slaves able to communicate back with the master? I’m wondering what kind of collisions that might cause…

    So… could something like the TV-b-gone ever be FCC certified?

    Calling this a ‘joystick’ doesn’t do it justice; from the spec sheet it’s easy to see that it’s far superior to any analog joystick with regard to x|y displacement, mechanical failure, and footprint. If all you need is a $4 analog joystick, this would be overkill on many levels. However, if you’re working on a velocity sensitive touch-control… the bounce-back on an analog joystick alone will probably drive you bananas. My dad always said, let the tool fit the job.

    These would make for some sweet lamp shades (tosses planetarium lamp in the trash). Just sayin'

    If you haven’t heard of or experimented with adhesive vinyl yet - I would suggest a google for ‘vinyl wall art’ for starters. My wife gets her supplies here…
    Complex circuits could be done easily ‘mixed media’ style with conductive paint, adhesive copper foil, hynar wire, magnetic sheets, and vinyl.

    SparkFun you rule me.

    Any chance that they’ll be coming out with a wifi version any time soon? Wireless nodes with this kind of power would probably vaporize peoples brains. Mmmm… brains.

    There is a Netduino friendly example here:
