A few noteworthy Kickstarter projects
« on: May 07, 2013, 04:22:07 pm »
I have no direct connection with any of these:

ExtraBee Open-Source Radio Module
(basically a lower cost X-Bee Pro long range RF module with open source firmware)

Spark Core: Wi-Fi for Everything (Arduino Compatible)

Sparki - The Easy Robot for Everyone!
(Very large number of sensors on a very reasonably priced, very flexible, fully assembled robot)

I ordered the Hexy the Hexapod robot (previous kit from the people now putting out Sparki ) and mine had serious Q&A problems with the plexy cutting and the used servor's are no way up to the task.
I'm not saying Hexy the Hexapod is a rippoff (price was okay for the amount of hardware) , but it was seriously underengineered and "beta" when put in production.
I'm hoping they do a far better job with that Sparki ...
Real Circuit design time in minutes= (2 + Nscopes) Testim + (40 +120 Kbrewski) Nfriends

Testim = estimated time in minutes Nscopes= number of oscilloscopes present Kbrewski = linear approx of the nonlinear beer effect Nfriends = number of circuit design friends present
