    I ordered my project supplies from Seed Studio (water flow sensors, Seeduino, etc.). Anyone know how long their free shipping takes? I think it was coming from Singapore?
    Thanks,

    All,

    I've got 6 1 Meter Strips of Neopixel Strips (30 per meter). Let me know if you are interested. I think two of them are accounted for @ $13 a meter. If you want more than 1 meter together message me!

    Thanks,

    Andy

    I picked up a rf device that sends a signal to the house when the mailbox door opens.
    Beeps then blinks.
    Plan is to use some gpio or whatever to sense the LED
    blinking and send SMS / email etc.
    I have a pi, some unos and a teensy to choose from.
    Open to comments / suggestions.

    I would like to know if an "corner of the eye" image generator can built. - I can't figure out what to search for. This is the sort of image generator that relies on the retrace speed of the eye. It is done in science museums as a vertical line of bright lights. If you look at something else in the area, the saccade motion of the eye generates a horizontal scan, which allows one to form an image of a cartoon character, or something like that. - But only out of the corner of your eye!

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
