My Free Day Order!
January 29, 2012
Free Day is an event that Sparkfun Electronics has been putting on for the past 3 years. They basically give away $100 worth of store credit to thousands of people. Sparkfun Electronics is a company that I order a lot of robot parts from. The previous Free Days I came away with nothing. However, this year I was lucky enough to win, very very lucky. The system was based on the randomness of a geiger counter sensing radiation.
In the video above I show off my loot.
Here is what I ordered with my $100 credit:
I might update this as I play with the stuff I got more. The Arduino I received was a 3.3v one when I ordered a 5v one (you can kinda make that out in the video), and I had to order a 2A 5v power supply from adafruit for the printer.
The printer is printing!
