Week in (p)review: January 23, 2011

Posted on Sunday, January 23rd, 2011 in week in review by Ian

Lots of progress this week:

This week will be a little more relaxed:

  • This is the last week before the Chinese Spring holiday. Everything shuts down for two weeks. You can still place orders at Seeed Studio, but they won’t ship until February 15th. Need it in a hurry? Try one of our distributors
  • We’re still expecting Bus Blaster v1 in the Seeed shop before the Spring holiday
  • Getting serious about the USB POV Toy
  • The USB IR Toy should be back in stock soon. This batch will have a different LED that should give much better transmitting range
  • We’re expecting a box of boards this week with the final USB IR Toy v2 update and a couple surprise projects

What are you hacking this week? Our favorite project gets an SOIC protoboard.

    I just had the strangest dream.

    In my dream, you held some sort of PCB design contest, and when someone won you posted the GPS coordinates of the prize so the winner could go and claim it. But then some asshat posted those coordinates on a geocaching site so a bunch of people kept showing up to the prize location and trying to claim it as their own.

    Just thought you should know.
