Congratulations and huge kudos to Andy.  Here is a link to a great blog post on how he created a colour LLAP display.

As a new initiative to encourage people to build new and exciting ideas with our hardware, we are going to be giving back the cost of the our parts used in projects as credits in our store.

YEP, that's FREE hardware (but you have to write it up and do something original so we can reblog it)

Check out his project

    I've finally spent my store credit...on another RFu-328 for other projects. Look out for more blog posts.
    I'm also re-designing the LCD display to include LiPo battery, charger and a different MCU plus SRF instead of the RFu-328 used here as I've getting to the limits of the code space but not the limit of what this crazy little device can do!

    Thanks again, much appreciate the work you guys do.

    Make sure you update your Ciseco Eagle library, there was a new SRF v1.2 footprint added before xmass

    Apparently one of my display boards was spotted in the House of Lords on Tuesday.

    ...just thought you'd like to know!

    I wonder if my RPi radio counts for this, made with a (very packed in) Humble Pi board :)

    Great news :o

    Actually come to think of it, I did a 3 part series on the Slice if P/IO that probably counts too...methinks I'll be making another order soon!


    I'll send over the email, cheers

    Ah...I got my items from your eBay store. I just created an account but won't have any purchase history. Bummer.

    If you create an account, I can put a credit balance on it :)

    All done Miles, although it won't let me message anyone without a purchase. My account is under the same name as here. Thanks

    Hi Richard,

    I’ve added links back to the great articles and popped into your account a credit for a Humble and Pi/O ;)

    Hi Miles

    I have purchased a custom domain now, so it may be worth updating the links to my Humble Pi/Slice of Pi/O articles:

    Miles - I've created a new blog review and tutorial on the Pi-LITEr board using Rpi.GPIO (as an alternative to the Ciseco guide):


    YouTube video is also live as well:
