Programming devices

J now has two hamsters; one much more vigorous than the other. We talked about how cool it would be to make a sort of tachometer, to see how far the hamster runs each night.

Logoforum has a post regarding the GoGoBoard, a ” a collection of open-source hardware platforms mainly aimed for educational projects.”

I mentioned this item to SJC who pointed me to Parallax’s BASIC Stamp products.

Now there’s an article in the January 2004 Linux Journal about a web-based cat treat dispenser, based on a Parallax Homework Board kit.

The Parallax stuff is more plug-it-together-and-go, where the GoGoBoard project is intentionally more build-it-all-yourself.

And there’s always CS 101 – Computer Organization…
