@dcpking what do you think? A little kit with an LED that can be programmed to blink to get 'em excited to program with hardware? [for the survey prize bucket]

Sounds neat, @Lilyheart ! Can you include a microphone, so it blinks more often as the ambient noise increases ? (Sort of a "calm down!!" machine :) )
@lantech19446 If you're still here, send me your email and I'll show you how I might have laid out your code ...

I’m not sure what all you’d need to hook it into the stuff. It’s this board. Going to see if C will solder some pins on. right now i have my tester mini plugged into a breadboard with a resister and an LED xD
powered off the ftdi board that is used to program it cuz i’m lazy

I've never seen c solder anything. Do you mean c++ ? :)

I guessed you were invoking some sort of a library :)

xD does radio shack do small programming boards like microcenter?
adafruit has this nice one that would work but i don’t see anything like it at the shack https://www.adafruit.com/products/1063
but there is a microcenter giftcard in the box so whomever gets can get one

That one at AdaFruit does look nice. The gift card will let them do it ... hang it out there as enticement! (sorry - got carried away reading about I2C communications chips!

Dunno if this link will work. What I put together for the box and tested by writing a quick blink program. Not the Arduino that will be given away tho. That's my tester for when I ever get some to making those sensors. https://goo.gl/photos/KKxxFnEjcEjxTWyT9
