It’s not a monumental occasion, but this week we received our first part delivery from Farnell and sent our first PCB out for manufacture in China! Perhaps in years to come when were a happy thriving business ( something like sparkfun ) we can look back at this point and remember where it all started. That’s the dream!
While we wait for the boards, I can get on with designing the software to drive and control them, for part of that I’m going to need an Android phone. Stealing Rob’s phone for days on end probably wouldn’t go down well with him, so I’ve picked up an amazingly cheap Samsung Galaxy Europa Android phone. It’s got all the basic requirements of a smart phone these days, capacitive touch, Bluetooth, GPS and WiFi. I can’t wait to get writing code for it.
