EiBotBoard
The EiBotBoard (EBB) was originally designed for the Egg-Bot project. It is a small (2.2" x 2.2") two channel stepper motor driver board with USB microcontroller. It is based on the UBW board and supports all of the commands that the UBW does (for the most part), plus several extra, like stepper motor commands and RC servo output commands. The EBB also has commands to drive up to 7 RC servo motors at the same time! While the EBB has a built-in 5V power regulator for the RC servos, if too many servos are connected you may need to use the additional power input circuit on the back of the boar..

EggBot Deluxe Kit
The EggBot is back and it’s been improved! The classic open-source art robot that captured our hearts (by drawing on spherical or egg-shaped objects up to 4.25 inches in diameter) has been upgraded with some of the most popular kits from the EggBot line-up. As always, the EggBot is still super adjustable and designed to draw on all kinds of things that are normally “impossible” to print on. You can draw on anything like golf balls, light bulbs, mini pumpkins, and even things like wine glasses (with a bit of work). The new Deluxe Kit comes tricked out with the precision egg coupler, a 5/64" b..

uLog - The Lil'est Logger
Description: The uLog is a tiny analog datalogger. Central to the logger is an ATtiny24 mated with an AT45DB161D 16Mbit flash IC. Sampling at 50Hz, it’ll log 3 channels of 10-bit ADC for about 2 hours before the memory fills up. Very stripped down and simple to use: at power up it determines if a UART line is attached. If there is, it spits out a “?” and waits for user input. There are only 2 commands: “r” for read and “e” for erase. Erasing the flash sets all addresses to 0xFFFF, and reading dumps all the data up to the first 0xFFFF. If there’s no UART line attached it starts sampling..
