Last week, I received no less than 6 of the Bricktronics Breakout Boards from Wayne & Layne LLC.  If you think that name sounds familiar, you’re right, they’re the authors of the “Make Lego and Arduino Projects” book.  These adapters would definitely be indispensable if you’re planning to do any kind of tinkering with your Arduino and whatever NXT peripherals ...

The fine folks at Robomattter have released a new beta.  Now, I don’t think it should be called a beta, but I’m sure they have their reasons for that.  It fixes quite a number of issues that were reported in 3.54 and 3.55.2.  Thankfully, most, if not all of those bugs have been resolved.  This is a very stable build, ...

The TinyDuino is, well, tiny and by tiny, I mean really tiny.  The Image on the left is the main ... Read More »
