Sample boxes for Bus Pirate educational kit

Posted on Wednesday, January 23rd, 2013 in #liveupdates, Bus Pirate by Ian


Needed a box for the educational kit so Seeed’s sourcers went to Huaqiangbei market and returned with this collection a few hours later. Very cool.

    Hey Ian, if you happen to spot any of these while over there, could you let me know what you think of them please? This ebay supplier (link below) won’t send to Australia – goodness knows why.
    These were used on the hand operated Pick and Place machine featured recently and I was curious if they were good enough or if it required something more like the units adafruit sell.

      Actually just threw one away with a stripped thread. Can get then for around 20 bucks as I recall on second floor of seg. Problem is specs all differ so much and theres no knowing what you buy in the market, or what it might have been.swapped with.

    Yeah, this was ‘supposed to be’ 5MP, but who knows? The one used in the manual P&P machine looked quite good enough, certainly worth spending $20-$30 to try, but I was very surprised to find they wouldn’t send it, reckoned our customs had delays and postage very unreliable! – News to me, never had anything go missing in 10+ years of on-line ordering and customs usually clears within hours. I’ll search fleabay more, but if you find somebody in the market who sells them online and will send to Aus, let me know. Don’t party too hard with Seeed or we may have Youtube vids of Ian dancing on the bar doing Gangnam style combined with LMFAO! Cheers
