Oomlout - Solarbotics Edition!

Oomlout Project CIRC-02 in actionGood news, good news! We've been following the Oomlout system of learning Arduino since last February, and we've finally finished putting together our own Solarbotics Edition of the open-source ARDX Arduino Experimenter's Kit.

Besides just working with the fine folks at Oomlout to make sure our edition meets their high standards, we've also been contributing our own efforts to the documentation sideof the project. Open-source collaboration works!

So what's different about the Solarbotics edition of the ARDX?

  • 12 colour breadboard template overlay sheets. These make it particularly easy to accurately mount your parts to the breadboard.
  • The 5-cell AA battery pack holder. 7.5V means the 5V power regulator on your Arduino / Freeduino-SB will run perfectly with no fear of a voltage sag.
  • Large 11 x 7" plastic case has plenty of space for your whole experimenter's package - even the manual!
  • Larger-than-normal 10 x 6x3/8" 32 page manual is easier to read than a folded 8.5x5.5" half-sheet manual

The rest of the kit contains a veritable plethoria ("lots of neat things"), including:

  • Arduino Duemilanove with ATmega328
  • 300 point breadboard
  • Laser cut color acrylic base-plate
  • 1 USB A-B cable
  • 70-piece flexible jumper wire bundle (these are nice)
  • 10 x Red 5mm LEDs
  • 11 x Green 5mm LEDs
  • 1 x massive 10mm blue LED
  • 1 x DC Motor
  • 1 x Mini Servo
  • 1 x 74HC595 8-bit shift register IC
  • 1 x Piezo Speaker/sensor element
  • 2 x Pushbuttons
  • 1 x 10k Trimpot with handy finger-sized knob
  • 1 x Photo resistor
  • 1 x TMP36 Temperature sensor
  • 1 x 5V DPDT relay
  • 2 x 2n2222 transistors
  • 25 x 560 ohm resistors
  • 3 x 2.2k resistors
  • 3 x 10k resistors
  • 2 x 1N4001 diodes
  • Arduino-to-acrylic base mounting hardware
  • 4 x 2-pin male headers (for pinning the templates to the breadboard)
  • 1 x 20-pin male headers (for pinning more templates to other breadboards)

New Books, Closed Monday 2nd

So apparently Monday here in Albertaland is "Heritage Day". Which, quite frankly, sounds rather uninspiring. Don't get me wrong - any excuse for a statutory holiday is a good one. But the name seems rather vague and underwhelming. And thus I began my quest to find the true meaning of Heritage Day. So as any […]
