I love to play with existing Gadgeteer modules and build prototypes for all sorts of projects in short time - by just plugging them in.
But in reality, most of the sensors I have come across for sensing the real world has been withOUT the beloved Gadgeteer plug - which then kind of stops the project.
I know that many of you fantastic guys in this community are just hooking up a few wires, a pull-up resistor and a few custom interrupt event handlers, and then you are moving on.
I am not really a hardware guy, and I think it would be really fantastic with some best practices or quick advice for the ones that wants to try out some sensors that has simple digital I/O of some kind.
Types of input you could start to cover is PNP, NPN, relay which should be really easy to do. But not for me!
The document found at http://www.ghielectronics.com/docs/5/digital-inputs really needs the hardware side…
(BTW why cant the community ask questions directly in documents, or add details to them?)
