Arduino Extravaganza

Hm, now there's something that'd be difficult to say five times fast. You should've seen me try to type it - it was atrocious.  But I digress - we have a big announcement to make. We've decided to bring our entire catalogue of Arduino/Freeduino products to Solarbotics. This covers the Boards Themselves, Parts Bundles, Shields, LilyPad, and Arduino Parts. While most of these categories are pretty bare (heck, there's nothing in Lilypad or Shields at the moment), we'll be constantly adding inventory to the site over the next few weeks. Right now you'll find that Microcontroller Boards is pretty full. Here's what we've just added:

Wow, that's a lot of stuff! And it's not all, either. The Freeduino Bundles we mentioned last week were such a hit that we've gone ahead and made two more. These ones are very similar, but feature the Arduino Duemalinove instead of our own Freeduino SB. You can get it in either the Basic Bundle or Ultimate Bundle. You can also check out the new Arduino/Freeduino Starter Bundles category, where we might bring more such bundles in the future. Are there any particular items you'd like to see us carry? Let us know!

"Wow", you must be thinking, "I wish I could be as awesome as those mighty-fine Solarbotics folks!" Well, now you can! We've just put up a Job section, where (lo and behold) we have two positions to fill. If you're located in or near Calgary, Alberta and want to join the crew, take a look and send off your resume. Better act quick, though!

And that pretty much wraps things up for another week. Remember to drop in again - we'll have another handful of Arduino items to show off in the next weekly post.

Closed for Canada Day (July 1st)

Well now. When we told you to "drop by and say hello" while we were at the Vancouver Mini-Maker Faire, we weren't expecting that big of a turnout. It seems like half the people in attendance were there just to see us. We were thrilled to meet so many of you, and although we were […]
