Arduboy (and a little retro comparison)

I got this last week, which was much sooner than I’d expected to see it. It is tiny. About the size of maybe 3 or 4 credit cards stacked on top of each other. That’s why I thought it would be interesting to see it with a Rex 6000. Of course the Rex has a lot more memory than an Arduino and is of course designed to be a PDA where the Arduino nor the Arduboy is. Even so, it’s an interesting comparison.

When I get some time I’m going to try and see what I can make with the Arduboy as you can code to it via Codebender. So that’s really the next step.

Happy Arduino and Genuino Day

Interesting that it’s changed now from just Arduino day. I wonder how long before it becomes just Genuino day? I guess it will happen eventually.

So today is a day when people do strange things with small microcomputers. That’s excellent. I might even find some time myself to do something. I had planned to go to an event, but it ended up not being possible sadly, so I will have to satisfy myself with some home tinkering I expect.
