The only advantage I see to a shield with pads is that you could hardwire all the power and ground connections, but all the signals will still have to be manually connected, so not a big advantage over a solderless breadboard, like I use.
Not much. That’s why porting the libraries to another processor architecture can take some effort. But the goal is that the library’s API abstracts the hardware well enough that sketches will recompile with little or no change, as long as the sketches use just the API and don’t directly access the hardware or contain assembler code.
This is my favorite thread in the community, I love seeing all these different ways the hardware is remixed. When people are learning new fabrication techniques and learning about putting these things together for the first time it’s even cooler.
You people are the best! Keep up the good work! Keep hacking and making!
The only reason I was able to create the original Arduboy prototype, or even learn about electronics or hardware was because all of the materials were open source from Adafruit and Sparkfun so I feel it’s the right thing to do to continue sharing and keeping it open. It’s not a traditional business model but I think it creates amazing communities!
so all the parts have just arrived for my arduboy clone, but how do i hook up the display to the Arduino Micro?
Edit: Nevermind, was able to find all the required pins by looking at the library code. It works perfectly!
So it has been 4 Years now Bateske and Arduventure KS is an Amazing success, Backer #608 and had to get the plushie. And now I seriously have to build one of these Arduboys myself. Thank you for the inspiration.
yep. It will no problem for micro and leonardo. But Pro Micro is dirt cheap and can be found easily, I can make a few of arduboy to share for my friends and my kid. I have Arduino Micro in hand but I think it can be use for other project and not thinking about buying it anymore because its a bit expensive and also difficult to find in my country
