Maker Faire Visitor’s tomorrow will be hooked on FEZ Medusa. For those who are too far, we would like to share this teaser with you
We all have had projects where we needed something very simple, like to control an LED strip or a Halloween costume. We then thought, maybe an $80 mainboard is too much for this simple project. We then turned to lower cost alternatives, like an Arduino board. And if you are like me, you are in love with the Gadgeteer sockets and plug-n-play platform, so you then struggled with the wires…with finding resources, then finding code examples. There are plenty of examples for Arduino, sometimes too many to get the job done!
What if there is a “Gadgeteer” way? What if you can use the same modules that you already own now, but on a $10 mainboard?! After all, all you need are a very few sockets, maybe just one!
Of course you wouldn’t want to lose the “software drivers are right there”, which Gadgeteer users already enjoy. The software is there, no googling, no searching!
The answer to all of the above is FEZ Medusa. She is useful, she is helpful, she is cheap (economical), and she is irresistibly sexy.
