  • A lot of stuff that you do with parts from SparkFun involves knowing at least a bit of electronics.<br />
    <br />
    And I believe the credit can't go below 0, it's just if you get some questions right that your credit decreases.<br />
    <br />
    It's actually a great idea, but there will always be people who don't want to put in the work.

  • Damn, class starts at 8:55am MST for me so looks like I'm going to miss out on Free Day again.<br />
    <br />
    No chance for a weekend Free Day? So that students can also have a shot?

  • This is quite a project! I love it!
    I actually happen to have quite a few of those parts lying around (minus RFID/LCD) that I was going to use for one of Mikal Hart's puzzles. Now that I've seen this, I think I'm going to combine the two.
    I think it's time for me to buy some more parts :D

  • Isn't the LED forward voltage supposed to be the same as the backlight supply voltage? They're different.
    And how would you drive the backlight with 150mA?

  • How clicky are these switches? What kind of tactile feedback is there?

  • To clarify, VCC is tied directly to 5V from the USB port, correct?
    And please add a 5V jumper/switch!

  • To clarify, charging with a MAX1811 at 500mA won't cause a LiPo fire.
    And if I put this battery in a charge sack, and it did explode, will the fumes ignite a wooden box? (I'm thinking yes)

  • Combine this with the cellular shield for prank calling fun?

  • Just wondering, have any of these ever gone up in flames (LiPo fire)? While I'm fine using them in my own projects, putting one in a reverse geocache box makes me wary - I don't want someone's house going up in flames!

  • Hold small children to a fridge? Are you sure that's right? o_O

No public wish lists :(
