  • Awhile back I sent you guys an email about making a breakout board for this. It is wicked rough to find any stock of that IC. This is a most excellent news.

  • Planking is so last year! We’re are stacking!

  • I use to have a lamp when I was younger that someone made from them. Easy to make just bend them into a cylinder or put two back to back and rivet them and then bend into a cylinder. You need to make a cap for the top or leave it open. Put a blub on the inside and watch the awesome patterns it makes on the walls. I think it would be awesome to make some hanging/swag lamps like that for a local hackerspace lounge.

  • Wish it was HD radio :D One of our local stations WRVU got slammed into an HD station and we can no longer hear it due to the lack of HD radios. If a cheap HD radio could be made I would make them and give them out so WRVU will go on.

  • I was looking at DK at a part just like this! Now if you had a break out board for it I would love it! Needing to make a custom mouse replacement that can send key commands from a button to a pc.

  • I took off work again (paid) this year to do this. I was happy to have had a chance of winning anything at all. For that I want to say thank you SF for doing this again. For this year it was not about winnings, it’s about giving. We gave you the biggest slam to your servers you could possibly imagine and you gave to charities who need every penny they can get. :) BTW I got into the quiz and answered 3 questions before the 4th timed out and I had to guess. I guessed wrong, but my unlucky bucks went to help someone else. By the time it was over I was glad to have helped in some way and got a few things to boot.

  • Next version put the option for an regulator and and an optional shifter. :) Please.

  • In addition, I think if you have a very limited budget the knockoffs should be just fine for most people.

  • A knock off 936, right down to a knock off 907 iron. I think I will stick to my real 936.

  • I will say that you need to power up the BlinkM and the device your using at the same time or it will not talk at all. I could not figure this out at all but a forum post help me get on the right track. hint Only thing I can say is a beef is to be very careful to watch how you power off your BlinkM/device or you will brick it. I think I did this by mistake to one of them since the Mini does not have an 5v out. Read the PDF fully before hooking it up. Software worked great on my Pro Mini and board does not have flux issues or cold joints like said before.
    Talking with my brother about the Max he said he does not see any issues with his device other than it’s real freak'n bright. :)
