Interesting gizmos at SCRoW

There were some interesting things to see at Wednesday’s meeting. Richard showed off a little remote-controlled LED thing (that will eventually become a Nerf sentry gun, apparently). The brains of his device is a little tiny Arduino-compatible board called the Digispark.


Other teeny-weeny microcontrollers he showed us were a Trinket and an Electric Imp:

Richard’s friend Adam demonstrated a cheap Bluetooth interface, apparently available at Vetco. Adam had it hooked up so he could control a little vibrating motor from his Android phone.

Meanwhile, Danny was working on his smartphone-based scavenger hunt.

There’s always something interesting happening Wednesday evenings at SCRoW, so come check it out.
