  • Gadgeteer Mood Cube

    I’m working with a few .NETMF folks and have been talking with @ransomhall (http://ransomhall.com) about projects to collaborate on.

    Eric created a Mood Cube using a GHI FEZ Rhino and 4 BlinkM Smart RGB LEDs.

    I created a Gadgeteer version using a FEZ Hydra, USB ClientDP Module and a MultiColor LED Module.

    I printed out a 30mm hollow cube (Sketchup file) (STL file) on my MakerBot Replicator.

    I then used a mounting board (more details on those coming soon!) that I cut out of acrylic to …

There is also the demand for enterprise applications to work in more of a consumer model on laptops …

    There’s no real set agenda for the talks, we will basically do some demos and have an open …

  • Gadgeteer MutliColorLED turns blue when you tell it to turn green??
