Like to read Popular Science, don’t write for anything myself.

  • I might be missing something, but I fail to understand the cost of this product. 1024x768 is roughly 0.78 megapixels. There are many online retailers where i could get a basic 1.3-2.0 megapixel usb 2.0 webcam for under $10, with cheap or free shipping. Is there any particular reason this webcam is superior? Could you link a factory product page or informational sheet on it?

    I would also argue the “don’t expect to use it for photography or movie making” since for years we have been using 0.3MP webcams, and older cell phone cameras for such. While newer devices have gifted everyone with five ot eight or more megapixel cell phone cameras, and very high resolution DSLR units, there’s no reason to count out a basic webcam for things like timelapse recording or remotr monitoring.

  • Since I cant find the info here or on the Intel site… Does anyone have the board dimensions? preferably with the edison mounted to it.

  • This might seem an odd question, but at 4-9V input… Has anyone considered making aversion of this board with a micro-usb input connector? I can’t speak for everyone, but between phones and tablets, i have an excess of micro-usb cables laying around, and im sure I can’t be the only one with nothing to do with them.

  • He was not yer sure if the lamp was truely evil, or merely guarding the printer against interruption.

  • NOT an entry: Thought we already did November… shouldn’t this be titled december, based on the description? :-P

  • Very shiny indeed! this is also nice for my old Asus netbook with the chrome browser! I think the only limit I see is it doesn’t look like it supports the Teensy 2.0/3.0/3.1 yet? Definately going to be keeping an eye on this project!

  • hmm…I do stand corrected, thank you.

  • How is it not relevant? The image in the example link shows exactly where on the underside of the board you need to attach the crystal. Is it really too difficult to break these pins out to use a different crystal? why would you need anything other than a 32Khz crystal, since that’s what ALL RTC products use for time keeping?

  • achivement get - published author!

    Actually I’ve been working in processing alot myself lately, though more for software than hardware use. Recently moved into IntelliJ to better export finished applications, and top of my list is importing the Processing core into my programs :) processing is a very simple beginner language, but when you really work with it, it’s quite powerful.

  • @Sparkfun: Have you guys ever considered re-drafting this board to fit a cell holder as well? Something like a 14500 Lipo (AA size) or the 18650 cells many folks might salvage from old laptop batteries? Having this board prefitted to a holder, or even just mounted metal contacts for the cell would be awesome!

No public wish lists :(
