A while ago we showed off the prototype/demo for the All-Seeing Eye, and from the positive response it got we decided to bring it back as An Actual Thing. We even mounted it to a DragonTail, and let it go for a spin around the office. Check it out:

We briefly toyed with the idea of releasing a simplified version of it, called the "Sees-a-Lot-of-Stuff-but-Not-Quite-Everything-Eye", but it just didn't roll off the tongue the same way. Oh well. You can check out the All-Seeing Eye below, along with a couple more new items for the week.

All-Seeing Eye Sensor Mount Kit - Standard Range All-Seeing Eye Sensor Mount Kit - Standard Range
$66.92
The All-seeing Eye is a custom acrylic enclosure used to mount 4 Infrared distance sensors that can detect obstacles in a close to 360 degree radius. These sensors are easily chained together and all communicate on a single, shared I2C port.
All-Seeing Eye Sensor Mount Kit - Long Range All-Seeing Eye Sensor Mount Kit - Long Range
$77.80

This is Sparkfun's latest evolution of serial LCD. On-board is a 16x2 character LCD with an embedded circuit based around the PIC16F88. Via a TTL-serial interface you can issue commands to display characters, clear the screen, adjust the backlight brightness, turn the display on/off, and more!

Two sensor modules, two LCDs. I'm sure there's some kind of joke in there waiting to be made, but I can't quite figure it out. So instead, I'm going to go and pour some maple syrup onto my bifocals.

...Hrm. You know that it's the end of a long week when something seems funny inside your head and nowhere else.

Tech Tip: Micro Terminal Blocks
