Normally the vending machine is a random grab, but since it’s the holiday season and we’re big fans of both awesome and cheap, it’s probably worth noting these two new $10 additions.
The Bliplace Kit and the sack-o-duino.
You may have seen the Bliplace on hackaday a while back, it’s Tanjent’s awesome wearable sound activated toy, but the sack-o-duino is something we cooked up here. We couldn’t find any breadboard compatible arduinos for $10, so we came up with this. A bag of parts, ready to drop into a bread/proto board that will give you pre-flashed arduino on the cheap.
Included in the bag is:
- ATMEGA 168 with arduino bootloader
- 10K resistor
- 16Mhz ceramic resonator
- 5V voltage regulator
- Green high intensity LED w/resistor
- 6 pin Header and 100 nF capacitor for your FTDI cable
