The sea destroyed my Arduboy :/

Happened few hours after this video :confused: :


WHOA. I can’t believe you made this! I wouldn’t have had the time… I would have been swimming on that fantastic-looking beach! Over in my part of Texas, it’s 107 degrees!


For a moment then I almost said “humans can’t survive that, water boils at 100” and then I remembered…

Have you tried packing them in rice?
The rice should absorb the moisture and might possibly get them working again.

(If not, boil the rice and eat it - the salt water will have given it a nice flavour probably. :P)


Err … he is talking about the sea taking his sand-made Arduboy, isn’t he?

Sand made?
He made an Arduboy shaped sand castle?

For the record, the video isn’t showing up for me .
I don’t know why but Twitter never likes my browser setup no matter how I adjust my settings.

Right … with out the video, you will not see his 40 foot work of art!

That’s really awesome! It’s a shame that the waves ruined it, but at least you have an excellent video of it.

I dug out one of my other browsers to view it.

Impressive size for a sand-scratching (or whatever the technical term is).

Moved the thread to ‘general’ in case anyone else can’t see the video and thus doesn’t understand what’s going on.

Yes, the waves covered it and then it was not there anymore in the morning :beach_umbrella:


I guess you could say your sand arduboy got a burial at sea?!?!

:cry: snif.


I can see it this time.

(By the way, you can upload certain video formats directly to the forums. .webm usually works, I don’t know about any others.)

It was probably just the forum integration with Twitter. In either case I’ve just pasted the link to the twitter post (first post) or YouTube (second).

I also live in the DFW and I practically can’t go outside unless I’m swimming. But, I am just fine staying inside playing with my Arduboy.
