    Hey, just poking my head in here quick to show off the first prototype of my Zombie in a Can!
     
    Check out the VID

     
    I used a launchpad with the 2231, a bluesmirf board, a window motor and a custom android app, this thing is awesome! I'm pretty proud that I made this in a night with 2 or 3 broken projects I had sitting around.
     
    Let me know what you think! and i'll be posting some scare videos soon

    Here's a preview of my msp430 project.
     


     
    Just started mucking around with sparkfun lcd breakout board.
    Managed to take the code they had for arduino and made it work with msp430g2211 on mini breadboard.
     

     
    Next steps:
     
    - use simpleavr's i2c library to interface against wii nunchuck
    - make a simplegame that uses wii nunchuck for user input and lcd display for graphics
    - thinking about making the system modular by breaking functionality into 2 msp430g2211 chips:
    one handling lcd graphics and the other on game logic and wii nunchuck.
    the chips would communicate over SPI.
    - replace sparkfun's lcd breakout with low cost soloution: custom made pcb, and a few components.
     
    As time permits, I'll post the code, etc...
    I'll attempt to fit everything on a mini breadboard. (inspiration from simpleavr's projects)
    Let's see how this goes.
     
    EDIT: dang, you can hear my baby crying in the background in the video. what a nice dad. 8-)

    Found this while browsing on the Maxim IC website yesterday. I can't find it anymore, but I found a page yesterday listing the value of the board at ~$135. Not sure if I'll actually get one - I'll post if my order gets approved.

    **Edit** zborgerd pointed out that this doesn't include the development board - any ideas for uses?

    Here is a little dongle I made from a section of IDT-connector header from an old IDE cable:
     

     
    This does nothing more than swap the RX/TX signals and pass the rest through.

    They're started shipping these again - I managed to end up with two because the order disappears when they're reviewing it.
     
    I contacted support and requested the code for the application that's included - thought someone might have some use for it.
