I worked fairly late last night on one of my projects, so I'm in a silly mood as I type this. Justin just mentioned to me that he built some more Illuminato Genesis boards, and that I should mention that they're now in stock for the first time in months. But that would be boring, so I figured I'd "spice" up the public service announcement... and Chris and I have had an inside joke with Chris that the Illuminato Genesis is the Old Spice Man of Arduinos :-)
The Illuminato Genesis has a lot in common with the Old Spice man:
It's ripped - with 42 I/O pins
It's built - by hand
It's tall - with 64k of memory
And it's suave - with custom LED's
Look at your Arduino.
Now back at me.
Now back at your Arduino
Now back to me.
Sadly, he isn't me.
But if he had 42 I/O pins, and had twice the memory, he could function like he's me.
Where are you? Your in a lab with wires.
With the Arduino your Arduino could look like.
What's in your hand?
Back at me.
It's an oyster (or 2 shells) with two USB mini B connector cables to interface that thing you love.
The cables are now a TouchShield Slide!
Anything is possible when your Arduino is an Illuminato Genesis and not a Duemilanove.
I'm on a horse.
You have no idea how hard it is to find a horse these days. :-)
By now, almost the whole world knows about the "Old Spice Man":
