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.

Another New Gearmotor - The GM19!

Here's a funky motor for you - the GM19! Slightly larger than the other metal gearhead series (GM11-14), and with a larger motor, this 35:1 beasty looks like a good contender for building mini-sumos or other small, speed-hungry robots! But be warned: It is a bit strange. The gearhead is mounted askew to the motor, […]

You guys are good...

No matter that we've been beating this website up for the better part of 6 months, you guys still find some bizarre bugs. Thanks to all that have been sending in the bug reports. We'll get the fly-swatter out Monday to squish them. Thanks again for all your (mostly very positive) feedback! Dave Hrynkiw, President
