I just ordered a FEZ Domino from Sparkfun  http://www.sparkfun.com/commerce/product_info.php?products_id=9797 And was wondering if anyone here at LMR has any experience with it?
If I get it working it will replace the two Arduinos in SEA RENDERING http://letsmakerobots.com/node/21098 and hopefully give me a more robust platform for further development of the boat.
