It will be clear in the signup form. All of this has been pretty fluid trying to decide what the best option is.
I wish there was a way to do the modification without soldering. I thought about maybe using conductive ink. But actually, getting anything other than solder to work would actually be harder to pull off than just learning to solder for the first time.
The good news it would be very easy, so if you wanted to use at as an excuse to buy a soldering iron and some solder, it’s something anyone could tackle as a first project.
I’ll offer pre-modded units but they will be sold at a premium.
I’d also look into trying to find a network of maker spaces in major cities around the world that would be designated places you could take your Arduboy and someone else could help you upgrade.
Actually good time for this:
Can you solder, and by extension would you want to solder a mod chip to your Arduboy?
- Yes, I can solder and want to.
- Yes, I can solder, but I don’t want to.
- No, I cannot but I would totally learn for this
- No, please do it for me, thanks!
