  • Nicely said. I think I need to print this and hang it on my office wall just to refer to it whenever I start to feel like guarding my work. It can be a cure for the rare time I start to drag my feet rather than post my stuff with a CC or GPL license.

    Can you bake this up and feed it to makerbot? I’d love to see them turn back onto the trail you’re blazing.

  • Despite passing up a $10 credit to end up with a $0 quiz win (first question answered right at the closing bell), I had a good time chatting with other SF fans in IRC and following on Twitter. Good event! I’m looking forward to seeing what kind of server damage we did :-)

  • I have published some code for interactive RGB mixing with this kit. The hardware requirements are this kit (KIT-10111) and an Arduino. The processing code takes mouse input to control the RGB mix over the serial connection with the Arduino. More details, video, and code are posted at The Daily Photon, RGB Mixing

  • I’ve put together some python code for sending serial data to these LCD screens. In particular, the code pulls my twitter status and writes it to the LCD. To work with the extra characters, I wrote functions to page the text (vertical scroll) or scroll the text (horizontal scroll). Details are available here: http://dawes.wordpress.com/2009/12/23/twitter-to-lcd/
    Thanks for this great module, I’ve really enjoyed tinkering and actually had the first version working in under an hour!
