A must see gadgeteer videos


This is a must love video :slight_smile:


Not in love yet? Then see this one


Gah! Must. Get. Spider!


@ Skew - haha! i had exactly the same reaction. i’ve been obsessed since the announcement.


Absolutely freakin’ cool!


@ Skew - Imagine this and game slate together :slight_smile:

PS:That reminds me - you are offering discounts to Maker Faire visitors - may be you should let the souls who can not travel to Detroit know about it too :slight_smile:



Everyone thank Rajesh! :wink:


Today I had the chance to play with these toys. Believe me it is amazing! The code is even more amazing. It is like the {FEZ squared).
The team will post everything about these projects and future projects on


If you square fast and easy does it go back to being freakin’ easy?


It is freakn’


When is the SDK going to be available? Sept 30th?

Or at least the documentation…


I think this question should be answer by .Net Gadgeteer team. But I believe they are working on finalizing the .NET Gadgeteer website and I suppose they ill have some more information over there.

The code for taking a picture and presenting is it is literally like this:

button = new button(socket no);
camera = new camera(socket no);
display = new display(sockets);

 button.pressed += ....evenhandler(X);
 camera.imagecaptured +=  ...eventhadnler(y);



You don;t need to worry about threads or exceptions. It is so simple


If I point out the extra button event registration at (edit: from will I get a few bonus points? Or will I get some deducted for being too OCD?

Either way, the camera code would be much more cool there…


It is even easier, here is some code example. This is everything you need ot take a picture when a button is pressed and display the picture on the display.

using System;
using Microsoft.SPOT;
using Microsoft.SPOT.Presentation;
using Microsoft.SPOT.Presentation.Controls;
using Microsoft.SPOT.Presentation.Media;

using GT = Gadgeteer;
using GTM = Gadgeteer.Modules;
using Gadgeteer.Modules.GHIElectronics;

namespace GadgeteerApp1
    public partial class Program
        // This template uses the GHI Electronics Spider mainboard.

        // Define and initialize GTM.Modules here, specifying their socket numbers.
        // e.g. GTM.GHIElectronics.Button button = new Button(4);
        GTM.GHIElectronics.Button button = new Button(8);
        GTM.GHIElectronics.Camera camera = new Camera(3);
        GTM.GHIElectronics.Display_T35 display = new Display_T35(12, 13, 14);

        void ProgramStarted()
            // Initialize event handlers here.
            // e.g. button.ButtonPressed += new Button.ButtonEventHandler(button_ButtonPressed);
            button.ButtonPressed += new Button.ButtonEventHandler(button_ButtonPressed);
            camera.PictureCaptured += new Camera.PictureCapturedEventHandler(camera_PictureCaptured);
            // Do one-time tasks here
            Debug.Print("Program Started");

        void camera_PictureCaptured(Camera sender, GT.Picture picture)
            display.SimpleGraphics.DisplayImage(picture, 0, 0);


        void button_ButtonPressed(Button sender, Button.ButtonState state)




Another exciting video I updated original ones as well (audio was fixed)


The balloon airbag rocks!


I spy with my little eye a spider in that video. Rock on guys! Can not freakin’ wait until I have one. Start shipping already! :smiley:


Did you notice GHI’s old Embedded Master in the car? This is the old design, before spider which still use GHI’s modules. Since then, we have been providing a lot of feedback to bring the spider out of its cave.


Can you carry/sell those enclosures? I would be cool to have with the kit.
