  • Wiring S Microcontroller Development Board
    Better than Arduino
    Review by Emre
    It's well known fact that Arduino is more popular than the Wiring board. Why? Probably because Arduino has a cute and catchy name. But the Wiring S board is actually more powerful than similarly priced Arduino boards: double the number of serial ports, double the memory, more analog inputs, more PWM outputs, more external interrupts, more digital I/O pins.

  • Wiring S Microcontroller Development Board
    Practical & logical layout with lots of I/O for CAN$26.99
    Review by Trevor
    Wiring S board has pins broken out in 4 logical PORT headers. Lots of (54) I/O pins in a small board size.
    This is just a well thought out board and programmed by "Wiring". "Wiring" IDE language has many extra features (portMode, portWrite).
    Easy to make your own shields from standard prototyping boards because no odd sized spacing. There is a "Wiring S to Arduino shield" if you want to use Arduino shields. And priced at CAN$26.99.

Barobo Actuator Disassembly

Posted on February 19, 2014

By Coleman Benson & filled under Electronics, Mechanics.

Barobo‘s Linkbot all-in-one smart actuators allow anyone without any knowledge of robotics to create and “program” robots. Each actuator is packed with many features including: • Atmel AVR Microcontroller: Compatible with Arduino so you can re-flash with your own firmware using the on-board bootloader • ZigBee-Capable Radio: Communicate wirelessly with an 802.15.4-compliant radio, create mesh [...]

Ticks beware: RC Truck Hacked for Pest Control

Posted on February 27, 2006

By William Cox & filled under Industry.

Ticks are a health hazard to humans and pets alike. Yet few spray pesticides indiscriminately in tick-infested areas, primarily out of concerns over environment and cost. Justin Woulfe and his fellow students at the Virginia Military Institute came up with a novel solution. They hacked an RC truck, upgraded the drive motor to 11W, the [...]

A Gumstix can.

There are other non-OS embedded systems like the Paralax Propeller or Atmel AVR. I was told the last one works very efficient but am not sure how much processor power they have.
