Very tasty!!!

Since I'm just getting into using the Arduino, this column came at a great time for me -- I can see all sorts of uses for being able to embed these little boards in all sorts of projects ... once I'm a bit further along, I think I'll be investing in a bunch of these little beauties.

Thanks for constantly finding all of this interesting "stuff" -- I already pledged to that Pixy machine vision system for the Arduino Kickstarter project you blogged about -- my big problem is whether I'm going to be able to afford to keep reading your columns since they keep leading me to buy "stuff" :-)

I know, I'm going to be poor quickly if I keep buying all these toys. I imagine these should work with the Pixy, though you would want to make sure to get the 5v version for that.

I'm a 5V man -- 5V was good enough for my father and his father before him -- I can't be doing with these modern new-fangled inventions like 3V (LOL)

When it comes to nail polish I have to say that I'm not an expert -- so I think I'll leave this one up to the readers :-)

Nothing like bright red to get attention, mate.....  but then again, maybe a turquoise to match the board.....

Caleb, Max forced me to say that red is better... Please don't ask me why :)
And re the board, I could say that small is beautiful but after this nail color story, let me just thank you for another blog with cool stuff.

How can I make up my mind when there are so many colors, which I don't know the name (thanks God my wife knows).

LATEST ARCHIVED BROADCAST
David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
