Jenny McCarthy, genius
So... this is what happens when you don't use your brain -- and you take medical advice from a stripper.
"Probiotic" is the little Shibboleth that makes this smell like woo.
I'm reminded of a whole mountain of crackpottery peddled by violently unethical shysters and borderline criminal pseudoscientists, for private profit.
This is JUST the ticket. Awesome, thanks!
They must've broken the sound barrier getting here to post.
I'm not sure if daisy-chaining a bunch of USB hubs to get a few LEDs going is necessarily the most elegant way of solving this problem though.
It wasn't obvious to me how to get that LED talking USB over that microcontroller.
That said, £15 does seem a lot, when far more capable Arduino kits are selling at Maplin for not much more. But probably reasonable if they're amortizing their costs over only a few units.
Impressively tiny device. Had no idea that it was possible to build a device that interfaces to USB in so few components (it does USB in software on a tiny microcontroller, and the firmware is around 1kb in size...)
The instructions look easier than falling off a log.
Question for anybody who knows: would it be possible to generalize this design to drive an array, of -- say -- 10 or 20 RGB LEDs ? This would be a lot more useful for me, as then, I could rig my server case with a string of LEDs to tell the status of all my hard drives, network, load (amongst other things).
... for offending our rich libertarian overlords.
Bow down before your masters, peon.
I see oldspace are busy busy busy slagging off Elon.
There was an ad by Astrotech (or something similar) in the trade press, publically accusing SpaceX of talking a big game but not delivering.
With this GTO commercial satellite launch -- these old, cost-plus, subsidy-munching dinosaurs should be shitting themselves by now. It'll be fun to watch them squirm.
It's time for the subsidy queens to eat crow.
And some Guardian-reading idiot leftie will use that to justify why we should throw open our borders to all comers.
There's "freedom of speech". Then there's "freedom after speech". Even China and the old USSR guaranteed the former.
And you're a moron.
I think foreigners could be forgiven for thinking that constitutional fetishism is some kind of strange cult. Like the tinfoil hatters and "sovereign citizens" could read the minds of men dead for 240 years...
