Yay, assembled a MENTA and ordered me an FTDI friend, along with a digital temp sender a 1.8 tft display and some various stuff.
Love this thing, I have it up and running ( from Linux and Windows XP ) and have run the example codes and the adafruit LCD graphics examples.
Managed to cut and paste my way into running the thermometer and the LCD at the same time and now have a really clunky digital thermometer. Even played with display size and rotation.
Loving the ease of access to this platform and dearly love the MENTA, Thank you Ladyada et all for the wonderful products and tutorials.
About to spring for a couple boarduino’s I think so I can keep my menta for playing with and dedicate a few to working projects.
Introducing the MENTA, a portable minty Arduino-compatible project that fits into a common mint tin. We took our super popular Boarduino series, and wrapped it with a prototyping area into a rounded PCB that slots directly into an Altoids-sized metal tin.
