Good things come in Teensy packages

I few days ago i got an email from Paul Stoffregen of PJRC offering to donate some cosmetically challenged but fully functional Teensy's for Arch Reactor to create projects with.  Yesterday, just hours before our scheduled monthly Show and Tell night, I recieved 6 Teensy 2.0 boards and a stack of pinout cheat sheets that they include with every sale.

Durring Show and Tell I presented them to the membership.  The plan is to use a Teensy in a project for the space and make a blog post about it.  After a short intro, Adruino feature comparison (more ram, more IO's, faster host communication), and browsing PJRC's projects page the ideas started flowing.  There are now plans for 3 Teensy based projects in progress!

Check back later for posts on what cool things a Teensy can do!  Until then, a couple pictures....

Teensy is teensy!  Smaller than a USB plug!

  1. Make an Insect Hotel
    • Start time: 01:00pm
    • End time: 04:00pm
    • Feb 7, Feb 21, Mar 7 from 1-4pm we will be building insect hotels at Arch Reactor
      An insect hotel is a place for insects to raise their young or hibernate over winter. You can use your insect hotel to attract beneficial insects to your garden to feed birds, eat pests, and promote pollination. The insect hotel can be a attractive focal point in your garden and will provide you with many exciting opportunities to get close up views of the lives of the bees, beetles, and butterflies that call your garden home. Each workshop will include several stations to create different types of insect rooms. Come to all 3 workshops to create the insect resort hotel or just come to one and build a motel. Whatever you can manage your insects will thank you.
