A great gift for my Birthday! Shield Buddy, and Papilio DUO-2MB for the Visuino development :-)

And a fantastic Gift for my Birthday yesterday!
2 great boards donated by Michael Himmelsbach for the Visuino development :-)

Both are fantastic boards opening new exciting opportunities for the Visuino development. The Shield Buddy has parallel execution capabilities, and the Papilio comes with built-in FPGA. I have considered OpenWire based FPGA development for some years, and this is the best opportunity to actually try it :-) . Exciting time ahead for sure... :-)
Thank you Michael Himmelsbach for your generosity! Have Merry Christmas, and Happy New Year!

Just received a GPS Shield from Makerfabs donated for the Visuino development, and the Tutorials :-)

An Arduino GPS Shield donated by Makerfabs for the Visuino development, and the Tutorials :-)
I also noticed that Makerfabs has 31% off sale on the Shield at the moment, so check it out ;-)

Since the GPS is already available in Visuino, and I was planning a new Tutorial on GPS, it will give me the opportunity to make one with the Shield in the following days :-) .

Hackaday LA December Meetup Last Night

Last night I attended the Hackaday LA December Meetup organized by Dan Hienzsch and Shulie  from Rheingold Heavy. It was a great event with 2 very good speakers, including Steve Collins from the JPL Mars Roboticist team.
The hosts also provided very tasty treats for all of us :-) .
Here are some pictures from the event:

Naturally no event is complete without really good food, and boy was it really good! :-)
