Introduction

RoMeo is an All-in-One Arduino compatible microcontroller especially designed for robotics applications from DFRobot. The Romeo benefits from the Arduino open source platform, it is supported by thousands of open source codes, and can easily be expanded with Arduino Shields. The integrated 2 way DC motor driver and wireless socket allows you to start your project immediatly without the need for an additional motor driver or wirless shield. 
 
UPDATE: The Romeo v1.1 behaves like standard Arduino Uno which means you can program it directly from the Arduino IDE. This new version has changed the position ICSP pins to make the Romeo compatible with the USB host shield and the Ethernet shield. That means now the Romeo could work perfectly with most Arduino shields. 
 
The Romeo v1.1 differs from the preceding boards in that it does not use the FTDI USB-to-serial driver chip. Instead, it features the Atmega8U2 programmed as a USB-to-serial converter. All the pins of the new Romeo use colored pin headers (FIT0084-R,FIT0084-B,FIT0084-G).
 
We commonly use:Green for digital I/O;Blue for Analog I/O;Red for Voltage

  • GraviTrack Enhancements - Lights and Sound
  • Introduction Searching for solar panels and related items on the Core Electronics website; I came across the Solarbotics GraviTrack Marble Machine Kit.

I had been experimenting with programmable RGB LEDs, Piezo speakers and a Light dependent re...
  • My ghostbusters proton pack
  • Hi all. Thought I'd share with you my modded Spirit Halloween proton pack. It's about 80% scale, which is plenty big enough for my 7-year-old son, and still looks decently sized on adults. As soon as I learned of this pack, 5-year-old me just had to get one. And I had just gotten my Arduino beginners kit a week earlier. I knew what had to be done :)...
  • Handheld UV Meter
  • UV is important to reptiles (and people) in processing vitamin D3 which is needed to absorb calcium. Without it reptiles often suffer from Metabolic Bone Disease (MBD) which leads to weak bones and can be fatal. Thankfully, pet shops have the answer, UV producing globes which can stave off the dreaded MBD. These are in the form of T8 florescent tubes or compact florescent globes and go for $50+ each. And, yeah, they need to be re...
