@Elizabeth: I also need to order some of those nifty screw-block proto shields...

You can get them from Duane's SteelPuppet.com website

Well there is this "Universal Screw-Block Proto-Shield System" that could be used to adapt the Mega to the Dr Duino....

Maybe they should be combined into a "Dr Duino Universal Screw-Block Proto-Shield"

This reminde me, I should pop over to the Kickstarter page for Dr Duino and I also need to order some of those nifty screw-block proto shields along with some Neopixels....

What an interesting project. Now if I could just get time to do some of my own!

@Sheetal: Do they ship Ardunio kit to India?

Do they have Amazon in India? If so, you can probably order one that way.

Do they ship Ardunio kit to India? I searched once but couldnt get specific shipping information. BTW the pictures of the antique looks awesome.

@FirmwareEngineer: I wonder though, is there something else that should be added/removed to/from Dr.Duino to improve it further?

I'll have to play with one before I can offer suggestions -- most of my projects involve Arduino Megas or chipKIT Max32s -- maybe when this Kickstarter is over, we can talk about a "Dr. Duino on Steroids" for these larger platforms.

Thank you so much Max, what an honor!

Orbis was such a departure from my normal design work and honestly a breath of fresh air. Working with Arduino and integrating an old phone melded with color changing LED's was really fun. Not to mention delving into the laser cut wood arena for the first time.

If it werent for Arduino's environment, it would have been much more diffiuclt to make Orbis come to life. Especially since i was only working on her at night. I hope that by having created Dr.Duino and addressing the typical pain points of Arduino hw/fw integration I can help contribute to an already fantastic developing environment.

I wonder though, is there something else that should be added/removed to/from Dr.Duino to improve it further?

thoughts??

Hi Guido -- first of all I love your Orbis project -- it combines tow elements I really like -- colored LEDs and moving clockwork parts.

I also love how you noted the problems implementing Orbis and came up with your Dr Duino test shield to address these problems -- good luck with your Kickstarter project.
