  • ~$70 worth of parts + $50 design, labor, and QA = resonable price. The price for labor and testing is well worth it for me seeing as I don't have the tools to make the pcb and solder the SMD parts. My next paycheck is going towards one!

  • Yeah I see the cable too, but I wonder if it's to supply power? The xbees may have been used to wirelessly program the arduinos. Imagine having to reprogram 100 arduinos manually via usb/serial? What a pain. That's just my speculation.
