Just wondering how much interest there was in amateur electronics stuff like Aduino. It's a fun little prototyping and development platform. Very versatile. I feel like bitcoiners would be into this type of thing. I myself have and Arduino Mega.

If you've never heard about it I encourage you to check it out here: arduino.cc

If you are looking for a bitcoin hardhack project to do have a look at this thread:

https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=76004.0

Mainly to make writing a command line interface to MultiBit a bit more interesting I am going to have a go at driving it over a serial line (to a HP50G graphing calculator). See the bottom post on the thread.

There are Arduino designs that drive a 2 line LCD and also a serial line to a PC that I almost considered using. It is a bit too much to learn to do though so would take me too long.

If you have a Arduino mega and fancy extending bitcoin use down to custom devices check out what I was looking at.

There is also a thread in the Development and Technical Discussion about smartcards/ dedicated custom devices here:
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=7539.0

People have some great ideas but I do not think anyone has any implementations out there yet.

That's some really cool stuff! There is a whole lot that can be done with this kind of open source hardware.

I'm glad to see other people using it and integrating it into Bitcoin!

How about making some kind of embedded FPGA controller that is plug-'n-play for any and all FPGAs currently available for mining? It would need USB, Ethernet, and possibly a small screen or something of that kind. Although this might not be of much use once Raspberry Pi gets released and someone develops software for it.

arduinos are cool but their limitations make your imagination divide by logic..... Beagle bones are my new favorite toy.
