Propeller Platform Video Howto

I got a new camera for Christmas (Happy New Year!), and I decided to make a 'how to put together a Propeller Platform' video.  Are these types of videos useful?

I don't think a video alone is enough for a howto (the Prop Platform has a written guide, too), but I was thinking there are a few 'advanced' techniques that beginners might benefit from seeing on video.  What do you think?

PICaxe Platform Module

I've been working on a design supporting 28 & 40 pin PICaxes.  The PICaxe board would support current and upcoming modules like the LCD I/O, motor controller, Internet / IP board, DMX, MIDI, etc.  The prototypes came out great:

What's on your dream robotics shield?

Right now, I have 3 platform modules,
  • LCD + UI
  • Prototyper
  • Propeller

I'm going to make 4 more modules in October.  3 have already been completed;
  • DMX I/O
  • PICaxe
  • Video + IP

I'm thinking the 4th should be some sort of robotics module.  I'm not sure what to put on it, though, so I'm looking for any suggestions.

Remember that the ucontroller would be on another module, and the module size is 3.8" x 2.5".  What do you think about;
