Yes! We are quite busy preparing to the above said Entertainment Expo, that is going to take place on April 24-27 2014. Come by our booth(s), which are # 302 and 402, we are going to have lots of new exciting demos to show off.
A few preview images of our preparation craze are available on our Flickr photostream.
It’s a short week this week, so new product is coming early. We are closed Friday April 18th, which is hence called Good Friday.
|LilyPad Arduino SimpleSnap with LiPoly cell
This is the LilyPad Arduino SimpleSnap Board. It’s controlled by an ATmega328 with the Arduino bootloader. It has fewer pins than the LilyPad Arduino Main Board, a built in battery, and button snap connectors!
|3mm Red LED with internal resistor – 5V
A red 5 volt LED where the resistor is built right into the plastic. No more messy current limiting resistors!
|5V RGB Addressable LED strip, 1M (144 per meter)
With 144 pixels per strip, this is easily the king stripxel of the techno-color jungle.
Did you see the lunar eclipse on Monday night? I wish they had it rescheduled for Sunday afternoon, so all of us night-owls-who-have-to-get-up-early could watch that. But noooOOoOO. But at least the internet will save us. At least from information deficit.
|Laser Cut Helical Springs
I wonder if zigzag helical springs can still travel down the stairs… Or they use the elevator?
|Egg-Bot Wax Painting Upgrade
..called Electro-Kistka, where Kistka means brush. The device looks nothing like a brush, but produces wicked egg resist drawings nevertheless. (Via Hackaday)
|Self-Stacking Building Blocks
These are awesome and need some sound proofing. But I guess this is not a concern… (Via Gizmodo)
|Tattoo Machine Out of 3D Printer
This looks much better than the same done with a laser engraver! Less painful at least… (Via Dangerous Prototypes, video 1 and 2)
|New Saturn Moon
Continuing with a lunar subject matter, this might be one of the last Saturn’s newborn moons.(Via LiveScience)
It will not save from raptors, amnesia, junk mail and cat fur though.
