LCD Idea

LCD Keypad Shield for Arduino [] - 11.00 : nuelectronics.com, Arduino Freeduino projects

That one is basically stackable onto the Diecimila board (what I have). Thing is, the buttons work a little different (voltage divider). Also, it uses lcd data pins 0-3...it seems kinda close. More or less a code change maybe? I thought I would throw that out there since the easier it is to assemble, the more likely more people will be involved in the project.

More info: http://www.nuelectronics.com/estore/?p=6

It still needs extra circuitry to make an mpguino out of it. I think we will be happier once we have a kit with a custom PCB, I (and a few others) are working on it.

Sounds awesome... I thought I would throw that out there anyway. I'm not 100% familiar with the current hardware/software, so that's why I posted it anyway. Any idea on the timeline for the kit? I'm just curious.

I think arduino would benefit from a "standard computing platform", that has a "display" and "keyboard", just like this kit, or like a mpguino without the vehicle interface circuit.

It worked for the PC

Unfortunately it is going in several directions at once and nerdy decisions have to be made by all

re: kit, it'll be a few weeks at least. I need to buckle down on it.
