MPGuino Kit

Is a kit still available anywhere ?
spiffie isn't accepting orders anymore.

I'm broke and I'd rather assemble it myself.

thanks,

Alex

tell you what, I will see about making a video for putting the prebuilt one together and see what the price of a bag of parts with a programmed chip in it should be.

I would be interested in this, more for the experience of putting it together than being able to donate less.

That being said, I donated $55 recently and chose not to get a refund when I got the message about significant delays in your production.

I have some bits on order to make the kit more feasible, will hopefully have something shortly.

If you really want some good experience you could build the whole thing smaller with a standalone arduino. More parts for you to solder in, but in the end it's cheaper and smaller. The arduino board is not needed for the entire MPGuino; however it is needed to program the ATMega 328 chip. If you wanted I'm sure someone could program the chip for you and ship it to you. I put together a parts list for this as I'm going to be building one myself and I can build it all for about $20. That's less than just the arduino board alone.

Email me and I can put together a complete parts list and schematic for you.

I would be interested in buying or possibly building one as well. Happy to purchase one or build if the directions are complete and easy to follow.
