Our second consecutive Feature Friday release is here! We have two new editor previews, featuring first—the Modkit MotoProto Shield, and making a return from the alpha editor—the configurable Arduino Development Board (Uno and Duemilanove and compatible).
The Modkit MotoProto Shield for Arduino makes it easy to connect up to 4 sensors and control two DC motors as well as a 16X2 character LCD (LCD Blocks coming soon). You can find out more, and if you don't have one already, you can order one now from Sparkfun.
I know a lot of you have been clamoring for this part, and here it is in all it's configurable greatness.
- Graphically configurable pin modes (Set as output, input, and input with internal pull up resistor)
- Re-nameable pins (Renamed pins show up in associated blocks, so no more trying to remember if your button is connected to pin6 or pin7)
- Use "Analog In" pins as digital pins for those projects where you just need one more pin ;)
It's actually now Sunday, but we started the release on Thursday, so we'll call it a Feature Friday anyway. Stay tuned. We should have more features coming this Friday.
