hi there, i'm one of the folks who work with limor at adafruit and i'm familiar with this product. this is one of the few products that we had to sign many NDA's in order to develop, so we are not able to open source it as per the agreement(s). for that reason we do not put the OSHW logo on it. we will be doing more with BTLE and for those we will have fully open source designs.
it is possible to even make a sponge (bob) exciting and fun for kids
i do not believe this person claiming to work with limor has, could you provide any evidence at all?
hi "anonymous" - there isn't anyone that's worked with us at adafruit and limor that hasn't continued to work with us in some way that i am aware of. i've been part of just about every meeting or interaction on any of our products and limor has never said anything about "money" ever. if you've actually worked with her (or us) you'd know how bizarre your comment is. anyone is welcome to contact mitch altman, or jay silver or anyone we work with (we're very proud of all the makers we work with) - everyone at adafruit loves working here, it's a real family and you're free to contact any of us and me directly and i'll gladly have you chat with anyone here if you're actually someone we've worked with. no full time employee has left the company and we've never fired anyone
